Kick off the New Year with Prayer and Fasting!
It is hard to believe that 2016 is already coming to a close! It has been a great year, and we both look back on God’s faithfulness and look forward with anticipation for what He has in store in 2017.
As we prepare to kick off the New Year in a few weeks, we want to be intentional about seeking God’s heart and focusing our attention on Him. With that in mind, we will have a 21-day period of prayer and fasting from January 1st through the 21st.
Fasting is a great way to humble ourselves before the Lord and draw near to Him. It is a way that we can set the tone for the year, and listen for God’s voice for ourselves and our church body.
We are encouraging everyone to ask God about doing some kind of a fast during this time. It may be picking one day per week, multiple days throughout the 21 days, or a variety of other options. The key is being intentional about seeking the Lord with prayer and fasting for the New Year!
During this 21-day time frame, there will also be several weekly prayer gatherings that you can join. We will have more details about the time and place of these prayer gatherings soon.
Let’s prepare our hearts for all that God has in store for 2017!
