PRAY THE PICTURE
Every day, we invite you into the ancient spiritual prayer practices of Lectio and Visio Divina. Each day you will be given a picture to meditate on in prayer, Visio Divina or “eating/digesting the image,” asking the Holy Spirit to prompt things from the image for you to pray into and to fill the image with spiritual meaning. Most of these visuals will connected to the concept of “Saturation” and will be connected to the insights included in each day’s prayer fuel.
We encourage you to start your prayer time each day by sitting in silence with the picture and listening for the Holy Spirit’s direction. It might also be meaningful to return to the image after you have read the additional pieces of the prayer fuel, using it to wrap up your time of intercession and giving the Holy Spirit the opportunity to speak through it on even deeper levels. May you be blessed as you engage your Creator in visually inspired prayer.
PRAY WITH CULTURAL INSIGHT
As we pray for Muslims during this month of fasting, we will also be exploring a Word the Lord has spoken over the nation in this season: Saturation. It’s a big word. Some may say unrealistic, unmeasurable, even unachievable. Gospel saturation of a country!? That’s a bold ask—a bold word! It’s a slippery word—hard to nail down; maybe better captured in imagery than words, anyway. Because things that are saturated don’t stay in neat boundaries. They don’t adhere to their given borders. They, by nature, burst the seams, drip from the sponge, pool in the corners, run off the edges, flood the low places, hug the sides of the scales, overwhelm the vessel attempting to contain them, and make the colors leap off the page. It’s almost a messy word. It’s a wild, uncontrollable God-word.
It’s a personal word and a nation word. It speaks to lives saturated with prayer and Presence, homes saturated with grace, words saturated with truth and love and deep vulnerability, decisions saturated with discernment, and hearts saturated with peace. But it also stretches to encompass tables saturated with honest conversations, neighborhoods saturated with light, schools saturated with joy, hospitals saturated with healing, fields saturated with abundance, governments saturated with justice, and nations saturated with gathering, thriving churches. Big things. Impossible things. God things.
As we pray into the wide range of things this word calls us to explore this month, pray that God would plant His heart of saturation into the hearts of every believer in Morocco with bold, expectant and surrendered faith.
PRAY THE WORD
Each day, as we engage the practice of Lectio Divina, “eating/digesting the Word,” the Scripture we will pray comes from a community of prayer from within Morocco that has been praying Saturation over Morocco.
Adjective: “Saturated”—holding as much water or moisture as can be absorbed; thoroughly soaked
Noun: “Saturation”—the degree or extent to which something is completely absorbed
This group is daring to pray audacious prayers of saturation—asking for God’s Kingdom to come to Morocco to such an extent that it is completely absorbed in His truth, presence, and transformation. Keep this in mind as you pray these Scriptures and join with those who are already praying audacious prayers on behalf of Morocco.
Job 38:27 “Who sends rain to satisfy the parched ground and make tender grass spring up?”
Praise and acknowledge today the only one who can bring saturation to the Kingdom of Morocco.
