Day of Prayer & Fasting

Day of Prayer & Fasting

Our next day of Prayer and Fasting will be Wednesday, February 7.  On that day, we invite you to join us as a church in skipping one or more meals and focusing that time on prayer. If you are unable to skip a meal for health reasons, try fasting from something else (television, social media, etc.).

FEBRuary's Day of Prayer & Fasting Focus

Fear and anxiety appear to be on the rise. A recent federal survey showed that 27% of respondents showed symptoms of an anxiety disorder. Only 8% showed symptoms using the same survey five years ago. While a variety of factors may be contributing to this phenomenon, the problem of fear is not new. In the Bible God's people are repeatedly encouraged, instructed, and commanded: "Do not fear." God has given us good reason to cast our anxieties upon him and to practice courageous faith. Please join us in fasting and praying for our church body, our wider community, and the world to bring our fears to God and to replace them with a living and growing faith in him. Use this time to identify some of the things that are causing you fear, and lay them down before the Lord in prayer. You can also pray for specific people around you and the fears they carry. Pray that the Lord will meet them and help them with their fear.

Join us at the Ash Wednesday service on February 14 where we will learn more about how the Lord can deliver us from fear. We will also distribute Bible verse cards focusing on the topic of faith and fear for you to use for memorization and meditation during the season of Lent.
