OUR CALL TO PRAY
The first thing Jesus did when he began his ministry was to go into the desert, fasting and praying for forty days. Prayer was His constant companion, from that desert to the cross.
Last Fall, we were led by the Holy Spirit to fast and pray as a church in 2017, and during that time to wait on the Lord and listen for His voice. Today, we find ourselves in a time of unexpected transition and exciting opportunity. The Lord knew and began last year preparing us for this time.
YES, LORD. 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting
We believe strongly that we are to make a commitment, as a church, to fast and pray for 40 days, beginning September 24. Our specific purpose is to be obedient to pray and hear the voice of the Lord. His is the voice we seek first in this time of transition. The much larger call is to pray and He leads us into the greater Kingdom things ahead in our individual lives, in our families, in this church, and in the world.
When God calls, he is looking for “Yes, Lord” people. That is who we are. We seek the opportunity, the blessing, and the assurance of His will. When He asks, “Will you…,” we long to say, “Yes, Lord.”
