From January 7 - 21, 2013, we will be joining in the church wide prayer and fasting. 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. Below you will find a prayer guide and several online tools to help guide you through this 21 day journey.
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.
