In the book of Joel, Chapter 1, verse 14 we read the following;
“Consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly; gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord.’
Then in Chapter 2, verse 19, it says:
“Yes, the Lord will answer.”
God, in all His Sovereignty, has established that when we fast and pray He is committed to hear and to answer.
Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”
Our part is to pray, fast and seek His face. He will respond and when He does we may be blown away by the abundance of His blessings!
On Saturday, October 13, I am asking that all members join us for a day of prayer and fasting. I know you have many questions and I will be answering those in the days to come. Tentatively, we will meet in the sanctuary at 6:00AM on that Saturday morning. We will have about 30 minutes of worship before we return to our homes to fast and pray. Members will sign up for 30 minutes shifts to be in the sanctuary praying throughout the day. We will all return to the sanctuary at 5:30 PM for 30 minutes of worship to conclude our fast. Everyone will have a multipage prayer guide to direct us on how and what to pray for during the day. There will also be many scriptures to read and meditate on.
Will you commit to spend 12 hours with the Lord on October 13th. Most have never done this. He wants to hear from us as a church.
C.H. Spurgeon said, “Whenever God determines to do a great work, He first sets His people to pray!”
