Prayer


We are a church of prayer. If you have any needs, if there is any way we can support you, please feel free to contact us. Also, on Sunday mornings you can place your prayer requests in the offering.

Every week our Staff and Prayer Connection ministry intercede and stand with you for your prayers to be answered. All prayer needs are kept confidential and are treated with the utmost respect.

Join us for prayer every Sunday morning from 9:00 – 9:45 a.m. in room #102 next to the lobby in the Jack Moore Hall.

PRAYER & FASTING

John Wesley
“Some have exalted religious fasting beyond all scripture and reason, while others have utterly disregarded fasting altogether.”

Prayer and Fasting together increases our spiritual strength and sensitivity to the will of God in our life. Prayer and fasting changes us and not God!

As the lust of forbidden food served as a temptation to create Adam and Eve’s disobedience to God and birthed the law of sin and death in their spirit and in the earth; fasting food and denying the lust of food can be used to minimize the law of sin and death around us and can serve to maximize the law of the spirit in Christ both in us and around us! And increasing our capacity to hear God, obey God, be used by God, and to walk in God’s full blessing and calling in our life!
BUT : WE MUST NOT JUMP INTO A “WORKS RIGHTEOUSNESS” MENTALITY WHILE FASTING AND PRAYING! …………. If we do………..We destroy God’s entire blessing that can come to us through fasting and prayer!………..WE MUST STAY AND ALWAYS MAINTAIN A SPIRITUAL MENTALITY OF GRACE!…….God’s grace is what sustains us in anything we ever do in life……….and GRACE SUSTAINS US WHILE WE FAST AND PRAY!

WE CAN ALWAYS KNOW WE ARE FUNCTIONING IN GOD’S GRACE WHEN WE CAN SAY TO GOD:  “Lord! I am fully SURRENDERED to you!”

WE GET INTO “works righteousness” only when we are not fully surrendered to God. GOD’S GRACE FLOWS AND REMAINS WITH THOSE WHO ARE SURRENDERED TO HIM!
