Not On My Watch 2017

40 Nights of prayer and fasting for the hip hop community sun-down to sun-up. (During the day you can eat but when the sun goes down you turn over your plate and pray.)

Week 1 – The Comeback (Lost Sheep)


“If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine sheep in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it?” (Luke 15:4)

As I think about God there are many words that can be used to describe Him, but there is one that stands out – intentional. God does nothing by accident; everything He does is with purpose and on purpose. One of those things He is intentional about, is loving you and me and pursuing us with this love. God saw fit to leave His throne, wrap Himself in flesh and come save us. This is a truth that many artists in the hip-hop community already know, yet, some may not.

Our prayers this week are centered on those who are lost. As I reflected on this, Luke 15:4 came to mind and I began asking myself. ‘What would make a shepherd leave 99 for 1 lost sheep? What would make them not give up until they found what was lost?’ And sure enough the answer is LOVE. Do we have this same love when we look at hip hop artists who are lost?

This year, there is urgency in my heart to be intentional with our prayers and let God pour into us His love for the Hip Hop community. May we pursue them with our prayers by name and wait in anticipation for God to bring them unto Himself.

Here are some prayer points to guide you through the week. I encourage you to get a journal and record what God is speaking to you. May God meet each of you in a fresh way this week, I will be praying for you all!

Sunday (Heart Check)

Heart Check are personal days where you are asking God to deal with your own heart. Here are some points:

– Heart Change

– Compassion

– Love Intentionally

– New eyes

Questions to answer:

  1. What are my views on the hip hop community? What is lacking?
  2. Do I believe God is able to bring in the lost ones? Why? Or Why not?
  3. How is my vision changing?
