The Prayer Project

On January 9, 2012 we started something called the prayer project in our women's Bible study at church. The goal was to develop our own prayer curriculum. We talked in the first night how literally any line of scripture could be turned into a prayer and we practiced that and then were encouraged to do it at home. I did it one time and the scripture I turned into a prayer was Hebrews 10:19-21 in the Message paraphrase:

"19So, friends, we can now—without hesitation—walk right up to God, into "the Holy Place." Jesus has cleared the way by the blood of his sacrifice, acting as our priest before God. The "curtain" into God's presence is his body."

The prayer I prayed was "Father, I want to walk right up to you in the Holy Place. I love you Lord. Amen."

Within a day or so, I felt impressed to fast for 3 days. I really had no clue how incredible the journey was going to be.
