Good Morning Church Family,
This Sabbath, February 17 is the 1st of 4 Days of Prayer and Fasting. The focus of our Prayer and Fasting is “Interceding for Our Family.” Satan is investing in destroying families. When families are broken, people are often left in despair, sadness, anger and hopelessness and at times may disconnect from God and the church. We will seek God to intervene and help make families stronger.
Things to keep in mind regarding fasting:
While not everyone is able to skip food, you can also choose to fast from something during the morning and afternoon of this special day. Possible types of fasting could include: water fast, juice fast, dessert or rich food fast, social media fast, etc… Pray and ask God to indicate what type of fast He wants you to undertake. However, even if you choose not to fast, please be encourage to be a part of the day’s prayer activities. Remember, God knows the heart, and the decision to fast or not fast is between a person and God, not dictated by anyone.
The whole purpose of the Day of Prayer and Fasting is to lay aside as we intercede for others. As we seek the Lord with humility of heart, and as we put away earthly distractions, we will have a more receptive frame of mind to what God wants to do in our life and through our prayer.
We will break the fast around 2:30-3:00 pm with a potluck luncheon of soup, salad and bread. Please free to bring an item to share and join us in fellowship afterward. We look forward to spending time with you in prayer and fasting on Sabbath.
Elders Reid and Rose
