Awaken is a 21-day prayer guide and journal to guide people in praying for personal and corporate revival and praying for spiritual awakening among those who are yet to believe in Christ. Many have used it to kick off the new year, prepare for a special evangelistic emphasis, prepare for the National Day of Prayer, and other such emphases. I even heard of one church using it for 21 days of corporate prayer meetings that resulted in a church renewal and a number of professions of faith in Christ.

This personal assessment tool helps an individual evaluate his or her spiritual growth in six disciplines described in The Disciple’s Cross in MasterLife by Avery Willis. The Growing Disciples Series of foundational discipleship resources was developed to assist Christ followers as they grow in these disciplines: Abide in Christ, Live in the Word, Pray in Faith, Fellowship with Believers, Witness to the World, and Minister to Others.
Andrew Murray wrote this book following the 1910 World Missionary Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland. His purpose was first to describe the state of the Home Church that made it utterly unfit to accomplish God’s assignment to make disciples to the ends of the earth and then to recommend a call to repentance, prayer, and a new consecration that would lead to a holiness revival. I believe his description and proposed remedy is just as accurate and needed today as it was over a century ago. This is a digitized edition of the public domain text. The highlighted version below is the same text with selected portions highlighted for a quick summary of his message.
Week One: Taking Your First Steps as a Follower of Jesus Christ
Week One is a 7-day devotional booklet designed to help a new believer establish some fundamental understandings and practices as they begin their new life in Christ. I’ve designed the booklet so a church could give it to people making a decision for Christ with encouragement to “start today.” And I built in a coaching process so they can discuss questions with a more mature believer. Ideally they will move immediately into a connection with a Bible study group and continue growing as a disciple.
