Prayer and Fasting Focus

We invite you to join us on our journey of prayer and fasting. This year our scripture selections are from Ephesians to James.  You will receive the instruction for Christian living and Christ-centered service and ministry as taught by New Testament ministers.  There is an over-arching emphasis on the importance of keeping our hearts aligned in Christ. There are cautions not to make compromises with the ungodly culture around us. There are exhortations for us not to entertain and embrace sin. The instruction is intended to enable believers not to be swayed by the world, to stand strong for Christ in the midst of opposition, to maximize our witness for Christ and be useful to the Master. 

In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.”  II Timothy 2:20-21

The consistency and content of the vessel determines its usefulness for the Master’s purpose. Your investment in this time of prayer and fasting will prepare you as a holy instrument in God’s hands for His Kingdom works.

Directions and Suggestions

We encourage you to use this Prayer and Fasting Guide. Set aside one hour each day to read the Scripture and pray. Fast the times and days that you are able. You may want to fast one meal a day for the 21 days or fast selected days. Do what works for you. Remember this is your offering to the Lord. Be mindful, prayer is speaking and listening. You may want to incorporate worship. You may want to have a time of celebrating communion with the elements. We encourage you to keep a journal. Record impressions and words that the Lord reveals to you.  May God richly bless you!

Unified to reach the world for Christ!
