This continues a 40-day prayer initiative Praying God's Word over Lexington.


Between Races and/or between People Groups: Those of different backgrounds (countries, socio-economic status, religious affiliations, etc.) Celebrate that God does not show favoritism.

3/31 – Seek Forgiveness for Ungodly Distinctions

“For there is no difference between Jew and Greek: The same Lord is Lord of all, and gives richly to all who call on Him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:12-13)

- Ask for a Spirit of forgiveness to come to Lexington to heal divisions.

- Seek God for a new work of healing, unity and grace to flow.

- Pray for a heart within the body of Christ to rise up that builds up relationships across all people groups.

4/2 – Live with no Bias

Then Peter began to speak: “I now truly understand that God does not show favoritism, but welcomes those from every nation who fear Him and do what is right. (Acts 10:34-35)

- Ask the Lord to show you specific ways you have shown partiality to those you’re more comfortable with.

- Pray for new eyes to see those who are different around you.

- Ask to be an agent of unity & restoration within your sphere of influence.

4/4 – Deal with Hatred

If anyone claims to be in the light but hates his brother, he is still in the darkness.  Whoever loves his brother remains in the light, and there is no cause of stumbling in him. (1 John 2:9-10)

- Ask God to bring to mind people groups within the church body that you dislike or avoid because they’re different. Repent of your attitude.

- Ask Holy Spirit to give you insight to allow you to see people of other cultures through God’s eyes. (both their gifting & their needs)

- Pray for God to use you to help bring reconciliation and hope to Lexington.

4/1 – Realize Our Oneness in Christ

You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26-28)

- Pray for true reconciliation in churches, schools and the community.

- Ask God for a new friend of another people group.

- Pray that God might be glorified on earth through the unifying of His people.

4/3 – Refuse to Judge by Appearances

“Stop judging by outward appearances, and start judging justly.” (John 7:24)

- Ask God to bring to mind someone you have wrongly condemned because of their appearance. Ask for the ability to view them through God’s eyes.

- Repent of how you may have allowed your biases to stifle your ability to reflect the love of Jesus toward others.

- Ask God to show you how to discern people and situations rightly.

 4/5 – Celebrate Every Tribe and Nation

After this I looked and saw a multitude too large to count, from every nation and tribe and people and tongue, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and holding palm branches in their hands. (Revelation 7:9)

- Praise God for the multi-colored, multi-ethnic Body of Christ in Lexington.

- Ask for God’s will to be done for unity and love between all people on earth as it is in heaven.

- Consider how you can bless one person of another race or people group this week. (a co-worker, server, store clerk, family member, etc.)

4/6 – Celebrate Who God is through Prayer

As for God, His way is perfect: The LORD's word is flawless; He shields all who take refuge in Him. (Psalm 18:30)

- Think of a time when God used a hard situation to mold you to become more like Him.

- Consider the reality that EVERY difficulty we encounter God can use to develop Christlike character in us. Are you willing?

- Who do you first run to when you have a problem?

- Praise God for his perfect ways and for being a shield for all who look to Him for protection.
