21 days of prayer and fasting

As a Mercy City Church family we believe that prayer and fasting is the way we create intimacy with God. Each year we set aside two separate times of 21 intentional days to lean into what God has for us. One of those times is in January and one of those times is mid-year.

You can find the list of prayer topics that God has put on our hearts for 2023 on this webpage! You will also find the SOAPD guides used for January. When we are in the midst of our prayer and fasting season we will gather for prayer every weekday morning for prayer at our Lincoln location and at scheduled times at our Seward location.

Our heart is to see 100% participation for those of us who call Mercy City home! We can’t wait to see how God moves in your life over the course of the next 21 days so be sure to let us know in the Prayer and Praise form you will find on this webpage how He moved in your life!

Prayer Cards for 21 Days

These are the things we are believing for as a church family for 2023 over Mercy City Church!

Spiritual awakening

1 Thessalonians 1:5

Revelation 3:1-3 (Repentance, Return to first love) 

We believe the next 3 years will be marked by an awakening in the spirit.  Dead religion will be replaced by the spirit of God which has the power to transform lives.  This time will be filled with miraculous and supernatural acts these will take place and people will be planted in the house because of all that God does.

Year of fulfillment

Romans 4:21

Isaiah 38:7

2 Peter 3:9-11

Proverbs 29:18

2023 will be a year of God Vision being fulfilled. Those who have been waiting and praying will see God move on their behalf, promises will be fulfilled.


Consistent Connection to the heart and house of God

Ephesians 3:17-19

Psalm 122:1

January 2023 soapd guide

At Mercy City, we believe that God’s word is living, active, and has the power to change lives. His word is meant to set people free and place them on a path to their purpose. When we begin to know and understand God’s word, our lives are transformed and we walk in the power and authority God has given us. Getting into God’s presence daily is an absolute game-changer.

SOAPD simply stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer, and Declaration. You can find the detailed instructions about what each word means in this link to the SOAPD HERE. But grab and pen, a journal, a Bible, and get ready to see God speak to you through His word!
