Beginning January 7
We always begin with prayer. Prayer is not our last resort, it is our first response! #PrayFirst is designed to prioritize the eternal and seek God's wisdom, strength, and direction for our lives. 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting will build momentum and raise the spiritual atmosphere of our church as we prepare for the amazing things that God has in store for 2019.
Whether you can't imagine your life without prayer or you can't imagine where to begin, the power of prayer isn't determined by the presentation. It's not the strength of our faith, it's the object of our faith that changes things.
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”
— 1 JOHN 5:14 (NIV)

In addition to this time of prayer, we would love for you to join us in fasting over the next 21 days! Whether you decide to give up a certain type of food or take a break from social media, this form of self-denial, when used to focus on prayer, will align your heart with the heart of God.
Please remember that every person is different and you should only choose what is a healthy and safe choice for you.

"And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you." Matthew 6:16-18 (ESV)
