Dear Church Family,
We are in an exciting Sermon Series and Small Group study entitled “Fasting For Your Breakthrough”.
Biblical fasting is giving up specific foods and drink for a SPIRITUAL purpose. Fasting has always been a normal part of a relationship with God. As expressed by the impassioned plea of David in Psalm 42, fasting brings one into a deeper, more intimate and powerful relationship with the Lord.
For the duration of the teaching on fasting I am calling on the congregation to seek the Lord’s direction on entering into a season of fasting for personal and corporate renewal and spiritual breakthrough.
An integral part of fasting is prayer. In response e to the disciples inability to cast out a demon in Matthew 17:14-21, Jesus told them “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” Prayer and fasting are twins. You can’t have one without the other.
Do you desire to know God better? Is there something in your life you need an answer for? Fasting and prayer will bring you into a deeper spiritual connection with the lord.
Will you be among those who will commit to seeking the Lord for change through Fasting And Prayer? Next week you will be provided with a ‘Fasting Contract’ to record your commitment to fast during our Fasting Series. This is a private contract between you and the lord, and whom ever you chose to share it with. It will simply record your commitment, type and duration.
I am looking forward to seeing the Lord accomplish great things in our church. Get ready!
