Daily Scriptures and Prayers

To help you during the fast, our Pastoral Staff Team have selected scriptures and written prayers for you to read, pray and reflect on each day.

We will also have two opportunities to join together for a time of corporate prayer in the Sanctuary weekdays in the morning from 6:30am to 7:30am and in the evenings from 6pm to 7pm.

Prayer

As you prepare for the next twenty-one days, it can be tempting to start thinking of a laundry list of prayers you’d love to see answered. But we really want to encourage you to keep this simple. Stay focused on the prayer goals and zone in on those with God.

When praying, make your primary goal to know Jesus more and experience Him. Pray prayers of total surrender, and aim to glorify God with your life. Focus first on what’s right about Him, such as his goodness and His greatness, and see everything else through that filter.

And most simply, make time to pray daily. Don’t over-complicate this! Just talk to God. Have that place and time where you can seek Him every day. If you don’t plan to pray, you won’t. If you find it a challenge to disconnect from the busyness of your day, engaging in worship music is a great way to prepare your heart for prayer.

Fasting

Do not let what you eat or do not eat become the focus of your fast. Keep the main thing the main thing, which is drawing closer to God. Remember, this is a time to disconnect enough from your regular patterns and habits in order to connect more closely to God.
