month of prayer 2024 slide

FASTING: Each Wednesday we will join together in a fast. Fasting is an important spiritual discipline closely connected to prayer that was commended to us by Jesus. A simple way to begin fasting is to observe a 23-hour fast by eating breakfast on Wednesday morning and then making Thursday morning breakfast your next meal. In between, be sure to drink lots of water. Over mealtimes and moments when hunger makes itself known, offer the sacrifice to the Lord. Take that time to pray, read a scripture, and to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Fasting reminds us of the Lord's words, "man does not live by bread alone, but the very word of God."

Alarm Prayer

ALARM PRAYER: We are asking everyone in the church to set a daily alarm on their phone for 11:57am. When it goes off, pray for our church, our leaders, and our mission. This can be an extended time of prayer or a few simple sentences. Church: pray for the people, our gatherings, the sick, the grieving, etc. Leaders: pray for lay leaders, teachers, pastors, staff, volunteers, etc. Mission: to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.)

WEEK OF SELAH: The word "selah" appears frequently in the book of Psalms. It is best understood to mean a pause in the text. When we encounter selah we pause and breath and will then be ready for what comes next. The first week of March is set aside for Selah. Pause, breath, and repeat: "Speak Lord, your church is listening."
