21 Days of Prayer and Fasting
This Sunday we launched our year with a call to Fast and Pray. On January 11, we will begin our Daniel Fast and we will continue through February 1. Twenty-one days of fasting and praying TOGETHER.
Why fast and pray? Because every one of us needs to slow down and tune into the voice of God. We need to evaluate our busy schedules and make sure that we're spending our energies on the ideas GOD has instead of just good ideas we have.
After the service on Sunday, Richard Breeden shared several things He had been hearing from God that day. Beginning in the morning when the Lord seemed to challenge Richard with a question,
"Who do you say that I am?"
God followed that up with another question,
"You call me Lord, and rightfully so, but why do you not do what I tell you to do?"
During the service, Richard said he felt God was saying this to all of us.
"I am ALWAYS speaking, my people simply aren't listening and responding."
I want to know that my life is following the clear voice of God and His direction. I want to know that our church is being led by God and His SPIRIT. And I know that you do to.
Joining In the Daniel Fast
I have already heard from several of you who are doing the research this week so that you will have the appropriate foods available for the fast. Find and download some menus. Make meal plans. Do your best to be prepared to fast AND pray.
Speaking of prayer, if you did not fill out the survey on Sunday, please make sure to do so online HERE. We are forming groups to pray each week and we want YOU to be involved in one of them.
Currently, there are groups forming around the following times. If you can fit into one of these times, great. If not, please indicate on the ONLINE FORM and we will continue to work at forming groups so that EVERYONE has a group they can join in prayer with.

I am excited about the things God wants to share with us and the changes He has in store for us as individuals, as families and as a church family.
