SEEK FIRST- PRAYER & FASTING
St. Augustine once said, “God is always trying to give good things to us, but our hands are too full to receive them.” It is not just our hands, but also our hearts, minds and attention- all too full to receive God’s presence in the measure He longs to give. One way to remember our deeper hunger for God is through fasting.
WHAT IS FASTING? Fasting is a physical expression of a prayer in the soul. In fasting, we remember the hunger we have of that which truly matters.
WHAT ARE WE DOING? As a community, we are invited to fast from lunches Monday-Friday (January 7-11). In place of a meal, those who subscribe below will receive a devotional via text message to use during this meal. We will finish this week with a night of worship at Jack and Liza Martin’s house on Friday the 11th, 7:30-8:30pm. More details HERE.
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? As a community, we asking God to make 2019 a year where we (individually and corporately) experience Jesus for the sake of others. We want to go further in our life with Christ and see transformation in our lives, homes, and city.
