Today we received this question from a 30-Day Challenge Participant…
“Hi! I am on day 8 of the challenge now and I had a really good experience on the prayer-walk day.
I have a few questions: Should I keep on praying for the 25 people on the list every day (or was this just for that specific day). Another question; Should I study Mat.5, 6 and 7 every day of the challenge and also 4 different verses each day? Maybe stupid questions but I just want to make sure I do everything correct, and not miss out on anything the Lord has for me.
Blessings, [name withheld as a courtesy] (from the Netherlands)

We answered this participant like this:[name withheld as a courtesy ], it was great to hear from you. Congratulations on making it to the 8th day. Keep up the good work, brother.
You asked about the list of 25. This was meant to be a one-time assignment overall, but it WOULD be great to go back and look over the list of 25 occasionally. For example, on your email for TOMORROW, we actually suggest that you pull out that list of 25 and go through it to find someone special. You’ll see that tomorrow.
As for the readings, trainers do recommend that we read 4 to 5 chapters daily — although it wouldn’t have to Matt. 5,6, and 7 EVERY day. But for the “SOAPS” assignment, the sermon on the mount just really works well. See the discussion on Day 20:
You’re doing everything great, brother. Keep it up.
