Quarterly Prayer and Fasting
October 1 – October 3
On October 1-3, together we will participate in prayer and fasting for our community.
Many people think there is nothing we can do to impact the world around us. Or we don’t know how. Or where to start. Jesus calls us to love our neighbors. Our community desperately needs the life-giving renewal and redemption that flows from Christ’s life, death, and resurrection.
I claim blessings on our community, our homes, and our businesses…
- Blessed shalt thou be in the community, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. (Deuteronomy 28:3)
I pray a covering and protection over the seed of the Word sown into this community. Let God’s Word find good ground, let it not be choked or stolen. Let God’s Word take root and grow abundantly in this community…
- And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts. (Mark 4:15)
I believe the Lord has heard my cries on behalf of my community. I trust that God’s heart and eyes are perpetually on this community. It is not by human might or power, but peace, healing and victory will come through the Spirit of God!
- And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there forever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually. (1 Kings 9:3)
