Your 100 Day Prayer: Day 1 – In the Beginning

What is your prayer today? Ask God to help you hear his plans for you as we begin our 100 Day Prayer Journey.​

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. Genesis 1:1-2

In his book, Your 100 Day Prayer: The Transforming Power of Actively Waiting on God, Dr. Snyder describes these verses as follows:

“In the very first two verses of Genesis, the Hebrew writer portrays the Spirit of God as ‘hovering over’ the unformed and unruly mass, much like the mother bird fluttering over her brood. The picture here is the very careful and loving attention God gives to his creation—protecting, shaping, and guiding its development. In other words, there’s no room for chance or randomness. Everything is under his control.”

TODAY’S PRAYER: Ask the Holy Spirit to bring order, peace, and purpose into your need and request.
