Grace 24 hour Day of Prayer


Missionaries prayer resource addendum

The Missionaries Addendum can be downloaded HERE.
If you have on your heart to pray for missions, please focus on the specific prayer requests on this page,
which was submitted and sourced from missionaries that Grace Church supports.
Divide your half hour time slot into little segments which last for a few minutes each. The following suggested outline is based on the acronym “A.C.T.S.” It stands for:

Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving & Supplication.

*(Supplication means to ask/request something)

Praising God, takes the focus of ourselves and puts it entirely on Him. This is the best way to approach God and begin prayer. When we praise Him, He reveals Himself to us!

Some Psalms of praise for God’s awesome majesty that you can read out load in this time include:

Psalm 8; 30; 33; 47; 95; 96; 100


Confession is to verbalise our spiritual shortcomings and admit we have sinned. Simply stated, confession is the act of declared admission. Let’s acknowledge our sins and our need for God’s forgiveness. Our confession must be open, honest, and specific. Take a moment and search your heart. Pray that the Holy Spirit will reveal to you any sin in your life.

You could use the words of Ps 19: 12 – 14: “Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from wilful sins; may they not rule over me. Then will I be blameless, innocent of great transgression. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”


Please forgive me for……….. (name specific things that the Holy Spirit reveals to you.)”

Thank Him that if you confess your sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive you of your
sins and purify you from all unrighteousness (John 1:9).


Thanksgiving is the act of expressing specific gratitude to God for blessings He has bestowed upon us. Thanksgiving differs from praise in that praise focuses on who God is, where as thanksgiving focuses on what God has specifically done for us.

Ps 100:4 – “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name.”

As a congregation we thank God for:

  • The privilege of having fellowship with our Christian brothers and sisters without the fear of being persecuted.
  • For the amazing growth of our Church.
  • For sending a new Pastor, Mynhardt van Zyl, to help carry the load with Pastor Joe.
  • For God hearing and answering our prayers and for providing in all our needs.
  • The serving hearts of Grace Leaders and members who are working together to make our
    growing church run smoothly.

Now ASK.

BELIEVE as you ask in faith. TRUST He will hear and answer.

Take a few minutes to lay before the Lord any personal prayer requests you have.

Let’s remember to pray not only for ourselves, but for the world around us as well.

Instead of ending your prayers “in Jesus name”, try using an expanded version of this phrase, like “I
am asking this, Lord, because your Son authorized me to do so and because I am certain it is what He
wants me to ask. Grant it, not because of any worth in me, but because Your Son has earned it.”
