October 9th & 11th
Join us for Converge 2019, October 9th & 11th with Pastor John Hannah, Apostle Bryan Meadows, & Pastor Lawrence Powell – we’ll see you there!
It’s Prayer and Fasting Time!
The examples of Scripture are as important and binding as are its direct commands (1 Corinthians 10:11; Romans 15:4). Scripture explicitly teaches us to fast and pray.
Simply put, fasting means to abstain from food for a period of time for a spiritual purpose or goal.
In Matthew 6, Jesus presents three specific spiritual activities and gives instructions as to how the disciples should perform each in a way that pleases God. His speech assumes the disciples would already be doing these things: “When you give…when you pray…when you fast…” Notice Jesus says “when” rather than “if”.
Wednesday and Friday, October 9th and 11th
In his book, The Power of Prayer and Fasting, Ronnie Floyd aptly asserts, “God’s gateway to supernatural power can become ours when we come to our heavenly Father with contrite hearts and obedient spirits in fasting and prayer.” He goes on to say, “One purpose of prayer and fasting is to bring our hearts to a place of being filled with a sacrificial love that results in godly attitudes in our lives. True fasting will draw us closer to God and His purposes.”
In preparation for CONVERGE please join me in prayer and fasting—Wednesday, October 2nd & 9th AND Friday, October 11, 2019. When fasting and praying remember:
Thank you and Shalom,
