Day 9 of our 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting: Our Year of Divine Settlement

Theme: Growing in Spiritual Maturity

Today’s Scripture: “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.” – 2 Peter 3:18

Welcome to Day 9 of our 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting. Today, our focus is on Growing in Spiritual Maturity. Our guiding Scripture, 2 Peter 3:18, encourages us to deepen our understanding and relationship with Jesus Christ. Spiritual maturity is not about age or experience but about the depth of our relationship with Christ and how we reflect His character in our lives.

Growing in spiritual maturity involves:

  • Increasing in the knowledge of God’s Word.
  • Deepening our prayer life.
  • Living in obedience.
  • Manifesting the fruits of the Spirit.

It’s about moving from milk to solid food, from spiritual infancy to adulthood. Let’s seek to grow in grace, aiming to be more like Jesus in our thoughts, words, and actions.

Today’s Prayer Focus:

  • Pray for a deeper hunger and thirst for God’s Word so that you may grow in knowledge and understanding.
  • Ask God to help you prioritize your spiritual growth, setting aside time for prayer, Bible study, and reflection.
  • Pray for the humility to accept teaching, correction, and guidance as you grow in your faith.
  • Ask God to reveal any areas of your life where growth is needed and for the courage to address them.
  • Pray for the strength to resist temptations and to live a life that honours God, showcasing spiritual maturity.
  • Ask for the fruits of the Spirit to be evident in your life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
  • Pray for wisdom in making decisions and for insights into God’s will for your life and your spiritual journey.
  • Ask for the ability to forgive, show mercy, and extend grace to others, just as Christ does for you.
  • Pray for mentors and spiritual leaders who can guide you and encourage your growth in faith.
  • Ask God to use you as an example and mentor to others who are seeking to grow in their faith.

Word of Encouragement: Remember, spiritual growth is a journey, not a destination. Each day offers new opportunities to learn and become more like Christ. May your journey be marked by constant growth in grace and knowledge of our Lord. May you find joy in the journey and peace in the presence of the Savior who loves you and gave Himself for you.

Let us pray:

Heavenly Father, we come before You on this ninth day, seeking to grow in spiritual maturity. We desire to know You more deeply and to live out Your will more fully. Help us to immerse ourselves in Your Word, to communicate with You through prayer, and to live lives that reflect Your love and grace. May we grow in every way to be more like Your Son, Jesus Christ, and may our lives glorify You in all that we do. Guide us, teach us, and mould us into the individuals You desire us to be. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
