Hello 2012!!!

Welcome Back NorthStar Ladies!!  I am so excited to celebrate the first day of 2012 with each of you.  I pray and hope your Christmas went well, and you were able to celebrate the true reason for the season!  As we begin 2012, Pastor Scott has called a corporate time of praying and fasting.  Below you will find a note from Pastor Scott, as well as links to learning more about fasting.  

Each day, we will upload the devotional for you and your family.  Please feel free to comment, and let us know your thoughts, questions, and prayer request during this time as we seek the heart of God.  The Lord is doing mighty things in our church, and what an incredible time to come together and pray, fast, and draw closer to Christ.  

If you do not attend NorthStar, please feel free to join us on this journey, too.  Seek the Lord for your family, friends, self, and if you attend another church, seeking and praying for the leadership within that church. 

I am praying for this blogging community of NorthStar Women.  Lets come together, lift one another up, and seek the Lord in this New Year!!

A Message from Pastor Scott Cagle

Dear NorthStar Family,

I am so excited about how the Spirit of the Lord has been so powerfully moving at NorthStar these days. As we enter the beginning of 2012, I know that our best days are just around the corner. There are many exciting opportunities that the Father has set before us. In the midst of all of this, I feel the strong urge of the Holy Spirit to call us corporately into a 21 Day season of Prayer and Fasting to seek His heart and direction for every step of the journey.

As we move into this special time together, I want each of you to prayerfully consider how you would be involved. This 21 day journey is designed to be flexible enough so that you can participate on any level. If you are a seasoned veteran of prayer and fasting or if this is your very first experience, you can start right where you are and walk with God in a very powerful way. We are providing this prayer guide and several online tools to help guide you through this 21 day journey. My prayer is that each of us will deeply experience the power and presence of the Lord in an extraordinary way as together we commit ourselves to Him over the next 21 days.

In His Love,
Pastor Scott

During this season of prayer and fasting, we seek the Lord in these areas:
  • Believe God for answered prayer to our specific needs
  • Declare our dependence on God in every area of our lives
  • Ask for forgiveness for our sins and the sins of our land
  • Pray for the completion of the Great Commission
  • Invite the presence of God in our church and our lives
  • Intercede for revival in our generation.

The links below will be valuable tools to guide you in your 21 days of fasting and prayer.
