Month: August 2016
Wednesday, we began out 21 days of prayer with a powerful prayer meeting. Members submitted prayer cards, and interceded for one another, as well as prayed with each other.
In this, our Pastor brought us into focus and released the details of the fast.
For the these days, the membership is being asked to:
Abstain from all Breads.
Abstain from anything Fried.
Abstain from all Sweets.
Drink only Water.
Saturate our lives in Prayer.
We are believing that God will:
Draw us closer to God.
Make us Solid Disciple Makers.
Prepare us for Awesome Things.
I am calling First Met to a 21 Day Fast this month to cleanse our hearts and minds to hear from God. This fast will commence a corporate fast that we will engage in every year in August. The purpose of this fast is to draw us closer to the Lord, get us focused on “making disciples” through Belonging, Connecting, Growing, and Serving, and prepare our hearts for the awesome things the Lord has planned for our congregation.
Join Lady O, me and the congregation in a PRAYER MEETING tomorrow, Wednesday, August 10th at 7:30 pm to prepare us for 21 Days (August 11-31) of Fasting and Prayer.
