40 Days of Prayer

Hello Family,

We are about to embark on a prayer journey as a church. We’re anticipating God to use this time to move in and through each and every one of us in a huge way. We want to answer some of your questions about 40 Days of Prayer.


Why are we doing 40 days of Prayer?

As a church we traditionally dedicate the first few weeks of the new year to a time of prayer and fasting. During this pivotal time in our history, we feel God is calling us to cover our nation, the elections, our church, our families, our relationships, and so much more, in prayer. We also believe it is important, now more than ever, to be connected to one another.


Why 40 days?

There is significance to 40 days in the Bible. In Exodus 34:28 we read that Moses was on the mountain with the Lord for forty days and forty nights and then the Lord wrote the Ten Commandments on the stone tablets. Matthew 4:1-2 tells of how Jesus was led into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil for forty days and forty nights which launched Jesus into ministry. Matthew 4:17 says, from then on Jesus began to preach. We can see from the Bible, something decisive occurred because Moses and Jesus pressed in for 40 Days. As a church, we too anticipate that God will be faithful in seeing us through our 40 Days of Prayer and then launch each one of us into a new season of break-through, of forgiveness, of healing and of a closer relationship with Jesus.


Who is participating?

The entire church is invited to participate in 40 Days of Prayer. All ministries at Water of Life are jumping in! From EK Kids ministry through Young Adults to Small Groups and Bible Studies; we’re all in!


Why Should I join a Small Group?

At Water of Life, we believe life transformation happens in the context of relationships. We were not meant to live life or pursue our faith alone. According to Matthew 4:18 – 22, the first thing Jesus did when He started His ministry was to launch a small group (He called them His disciples). We think that’s a good example to follow. We encourage you, during 40 Days of Prayer, to spend 5 weeks in a Small Group. Some groups are meeting temporarily online while others have chosen to meet in backyards or other outdoor spaces. You can find and join a small group today. Click here for a list of available Small Groups.


Can I host my own Small Group?

Yes! Hosting a Small Group is easy. The only thing required to be a host is:
H – Heart for God
O – Openness to grow
S – Serve faithfully as a Host for 5 weeks
T – Turn on the video


We provide you with the resources and videos from Pastor Dan that you will share with your Small Group each week along with support from other Small Group Leaders and staff. You can gather a group of friends, family, neighbors or we’ll gather them for you! Let us know today if you would host a Small Group.


What’s included in 40 Days of Prayer?

We’re so excited to begin distributing the 40 Days of Prayer materials that will include a Prayer Guide, memory verse scripture cards and some other fun items to get you started. There are no fees for these materials. The Prayer Guide will be your resource to navigate through 40 Days of Prayer.


In the Prayer Guide you will find:


  • Fill in sermon notes you can use during the weekend messages with Pastor Dan. Bring the guide with you to church every week, beginning October 10th/11th
  • Each day provides a verse to focus on and prompts to help you reflect and journal
  • Resources on Prayer and Fasting
  • A help section for Small Group Hosts


View the digital version of the 40 Days of Prayer Guide here.


How do I get my 40 Days of Prayer Materials?

You can pick up your 40 Days of Prayer materials after services on Saturday night during our 5:00pm & 7:00pm services or on Sunday night after the 5:00pm service. If you are not able to come to the church to pick up your materials, we will have materials available at the Administration office during the week beginning October 5th from 9:00am – 4:00pm, while supplies last. The Administration office is located at 14418 Miller Ave, Ste K, Fontana. Please check before heading to the Administration office to confirm availability of materials.
