2020 has so far been a year of unexpected challenges. And there are surely more to come! But God is faithful and we know that Jesus is with us and will see us through any trials and help us to meet them in a way that gives glory to God. Our part is to seek God’s heart and to draw close to Him so that we can hear and follow His leading. I am inviting you to join in on a concerted effort to do just that, by engaging in 30 days of prayer and fasting.
There are many Biblical examples of people who, knowing that God was their only hope, fasted and prayed as they sought God’s help: Moses, Hannah, Daniel, Ana and others. This is our time to follow their example. So for the month of September we are asking people to choose a way to fast that is safe for you, and to dedicate yourself to daily prayer for ourselves, our church, our nation and our world.
Pastor Marsha and I will be sending out prayer prompts Monday through Friday, and will be available on Wednesdays at noon (by Zoom) and 7pm (Zoom and in-person) to pray with participants and to share our experiences with God.
If you want to join in on this, please email Pastor Marsha or me to let us know and to get on the email devotional list. And if you have questions about how to choose a fast that is right for you, please ask us. We’ll be happy to offer some guidance.
Church, whether you are able to fast or not, you can pray, and that’s what we need to be doing most of all. So please be in prayer – let’s flood the gates of heaven with our prayers, seek God’s heart and His will, and obediently follow all that He tells us to do.
