“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. My eyes will be open and my ears attentive to every prayer made in this place.”
Dear E-Free Family,
I am so thankful for your desire to seek after the face of God on behalf of our church. The purpose of this week is to seek God’s face together, listen to his voice, and ask that He empower our efforts to expand His Kingdom. Many don’t realize the power, joy and life that come from fasting. I am grateful that you do, and are looking forward to seeking God’s face for our church.
We are living in a time when we need that – now is the time to fast, and pray that Gods Kingdom would come, on earth, as it is in heaven. In Acts 13:2 the church was fasting when the Holy Spirit told them to appoint Saul and Barnabas as apostles. Fasting enabled them to hear the voice of the Lord more clearly. Dear family, I am asking that over this next week we set aside some time to earnestly pray and hear the voice of God through our time of fasting.
We are looking to intercede for the people of our church and the community, seek God’s power to fulfill His calling to us, and listen for any specific direction He has for us.
Thank you for fasting and praying for our church.
