EVERY SUNDAY AT 8:30, 10, & 11:30AM

Day 21 - Prayer and Fasting

It can simply be too much. Life, that is. Work, people, the media, the noise, the demands, the stress can squeeze out the energy and enthusiasm that should characterize the wonder all around us. We feel life has become like an old, lumpy, overstuffed chair that has long since lost its ability to provide comfort. We search about for an escape, a change, a way to turn the craziness into some semblance of order and peace. Yet it seems that there is nothing we can do. 
This is where you will have to flex your newly gained faith muscles going forward. As we close out the fast, make it your goal to continue the new habits you have built. Jesus made it his business to get alone by himself and pray. We must have this same determination and focus. 

Scripture Focus: Read Matthew 14:22-33
Key Verse: Matthew 14:23 

Journaling Guide: 
  • As you think about the end of the fast, create your plan to continue practicing your bible study and prayer discipline. 

Prayer Focus: 
  • Ask God to give you the courage and faith to get out of the boat and walk on the water like Peter. 
  • Pray through your fears to see Christ walking on the storms of your life. 
  • Thank God for all He has done.
  • PRAY FOR OUR CHURCH: Expand Our Faith Matthew 17.20; Romans 10.17; Ephesians 3.16-17
    • Pray asking God for his miracles in your impossible needs, issues, or people. 
    • Ask the Lord to provide the $500,000 for the completion of our church’s EXPAND project. Ask God what part He wants you to play.
