30 Days to a Stronger Prayer Life

Let's Pray!


Join K-LOVE on a journey to reignite and strengthen your prayer life! To go along with this year’s National Day of Prayer (Thursday, May 7), K-LOVE is kicking off 30 days of prayer, featuring a new theme and prayer for each day.

Prayer is an essential part of opening ourselves up to God. For the next 30 days, commit yourself to purposefully set aside daily time to pause and pray.

Dear God, my tendency is to give up when things get hard. Even though there are areas in my life where I’m not hearing You speak right now, give me strength to keep seeking You. In the powerful name of Jesus I pray, amen.

"One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up."

Join us in prayer!

Join this 30-day journey and start your morning with a new prayer each day!
