Take Direction


The “first-thing-in-the-morning-prayer” breathing prayer exercise is not a substitute for praying. Praycation is an opportunity to grow deeper in prayer. The goal is 31 minutes of prayer daily for the rest of the month of August. If you can find hours to tweet, text, talk, facebook and blog, surely you can find a mere 31 minutes to talk to God! How? Go on a social network fast for 31 minutes per day.

“O Lord, direct our hearts to the love of God and the endurance of Christ.”

2 Thessalonians 3:5

Lord, open the eyes of my heart today so that I may see your clearly while your love overwhelms my very being.


  1. I have gone on a Facebook fast. I am going through midlife crisis and I want to understand and trust God. I don't want to be angry, bitter, and depressed. Thanks for this journey.

  2. This is such confirmation for me because just a few days ago I wrote a prayer in my journal telling the Lord that I would spend more time with Him and less time on Twitter!

  3. @dst4life ~ my sentiments exactly!

    Thank you Bishop McKenzie and Thank God for His perfect timing!!!!
