Beginning January 16
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 2023.
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)

"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)
