8/21 Days of Prayer

The first part of the tabernacle was the outer courts. The outer court was all about giving God thanksgiving and praise.
In the Old Testament, the Tabernacle was the dwelling place of God. The Tabernacle was where God would meet His people, and it was built with His detailed specifications. As they entered the Tabernacle, they passed through seven different areas to experience God’s presence. Even though we no longer need the physical Tabernacle to meet with God, these same steps can help us connect with Him. This prayer model will take us through each portion of the Tabernacle and use each of their purposes to help guide our prayers. Let’s walk through each one to discover what it means for us, and how we can use it to grow our personal prayer life over the next 7 days.
The Israelites entered the Tabernacle with thanksgiving and praise, and we should start our prayer time the same way.
PSALM 100:4 (NIV)

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name

Spend some time thinking about all that God has blessed you with, and give him thanks for all He’s done. You can write them down in a list, sing your own song of praise, or just spend a few quiet moments reflecting on your life with gratitude and praise toward God.


“Father God, you are good, and you deserve all my praise. Thank you for the many ways you have blessed me. Thank you for watching over me. (Tell Him specific things in your life that you’re grateful for. Thank Him for something new that you’ve never thanked Him for.) I want to experience your presence and Your love in a fresh way today Jesus. I thank you that your mercies are new every day. I thank you for who you are and all you have done for me.”
