The Pilgrims who sailed to America onboard the Mayflower left a rich legacy of Christian faith and zeal for God's kingdom. In Monumental Prayers, the story of the Pilgrims is viewed through the symbolism of the Forefathers Monument in Plymouth, Massachusetts, dedicated in 1889 to honor their labors, sacrifices, and sufferings for the cause of civil and religious liberty. By examining how God used this small group of believers to change history, Monument Prayers invites you to contend for a spiritual legacy in your family, city, and nation.
In this 14-day study, reflect on topics such as Faith, Morality, Law, Mercy, Education, Wisdom, Tyranny, and Liberty— learn how the Pilgrim’s faith enabled them to endure trials and serve God with joy in an often-hostile world. As individuals, church members, and citizens at Plymouth Colony, discover how God used this small band of faithful followers to impact a nation—and how He can use you too!
Each section opens with a profile of the Pilgrim legacy before moving into a time of personal devotion inspired by Martin Luther's practice of praying from and through Scripture. Beginning with an opening prayer of Worship, the reader is guided through prayers of Confession, Petition, and Intercession and concludes with a prayer of Thanksgiving. Each prayer focus features a generous selection of Scripture for mediation, with topic prompts to help guide your prayers. Ideal for personal or small group studies, Monument Prayers encourages ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things by partnering with God in prayer.
