21 DAYS OF PRAYER - WEEK 1
Jan 07, 2019
Today is Day 2 of 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting. Each day we will be premiering videos on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram from leaders in our church who will be sharing a devotional and leading us in prayer. Be sure to check those out on social media Monday-Friday for the next 21 days! Click the image above for the first one!
Prayer and fasting help us get into spiritual order and hear clearly from God. When we are in spiritual order, we choose to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Our body and soul (mind, will, & emotions) are no longer in control. The Bible also says that there are some things we can only know through prayer and fasting, so when we fast we can receive great revelation!
We encourage everyone to do the Daniel’s Fast, which is basically eliminating meats and sweets. There is a list of recommended food below.
Let’s start the New Year by putting God first and believing that He is going to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we know how to ask or imagine.
Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
