July 6 begins our annual 40 days of prayer and fasting. This will be our fourth year practicing this spiritual discipline together. We fast together to recognize our complete physical and spiritual dependence on God alone to sustain and provide.

Fasting can be done in a variety of ways. You can fast entire days, entire meals, or certain items, and it doesn’t even have to be food. Maybe you give up your favorite drink for a period of time. Perhaps you go without one meal a week. If TV is your jam, turn it off for a few days, and replace those times with seeking after God. It’s not as important what you fast, as it is why you’re fasting. The motive should be to let go of things to create a desire and then place that desire on God. It is us saying to God: “I desire you more than anything else!”

Please do not negate the prayer element! As we give up items that create a longing, that longing should drive us to the Lord. However, instead of praying for ourselves - we seek out the Lord for more of Him and His ways. Specifically, we are praying for salvations, His leading on our church, and His glory to be revealed in and through our people.

This year, we have a resource to aid you as you pray. We have created five downloadable prayer cards. One has our focus verse for the year, Matthew 22:37. The remaining four have one of our vision words - LOVE, GROW, PRAISE, SHARE, and verses related to that word. Please download them today and prepare to join us as we fast.
