Greetings to All,
As a community we have set aside a time for prayer and fasting during the month of January for many years. We have done this for several reasons. One, to humble ourselves before the Lord declaring our great need of Him at the outset of the new year. Two, as our way also of setting our hearts with intentionality at this new threshold.
You may be someone experienced with fasting or you may be someone who has no experience with it at all. In either case, I am listing here a website that does a great job in answering all kinds of questions about the topic. Here it is:
In addition, some of you may know the ministry of Jentenzen Franklin. Rev. Franklin is a great motivator in this regard. There are many of his teachings on YouTube about the subject. We know he will bless you.
As a reminder, we begin our fast on Tuesday evening somewhere around 5:00 p.m. It will end on Friday evening at the same time. On Wednesday evening we will meet at Bethany House for some prayer together. On Friday evening we will also gather for a night of Soaking Prayer. That is a time to come into a quiet atmosphere, come out of the traffic, and spend some quiet moments with the Lord. The Prayer Team will be available as well to pray for you. We hope to see you.
Fasting and Prayer, gets God's attention.
