Prayer & Fasting

During our 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting, we would like our congregation to pray over specific topics. Daily reminders are posted on social media, but here is a weekly overview.

Week 3 - Church

15. More people filled with the Holy Spirit this year than ever before

Sunday, January 22

Acts 4:31

31 After this prayer, the meeting place shook, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Then they preached the word of God with boldness.

16. More people saved than ever before

Monday, January 23

Acts 2:36-41

36 “So let everyone in Israel know for certain that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, to be both Lord and Messiah!”

37 Peter’s words pierced their hearts, and they said to him and to the other apostles, “Brothers, what should we do?”

38 Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is to you, to your children, and to those far away—all who have been called by the Lord our God.” 40 Then Peter continued preaching for a long time, strongly urging all his listeners, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation!”

41 Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church that day—about 3,000 in all.

17. More worship opportunities than ever before

Tuesday, January 24

Acts 2:46-47

46 They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity— 47 all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.

18. Learn more of God’s Word than ever before

Wednesday, January 25

Acts 17:11

11 And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth.

19. This will be the most compassionate year than ever before

Thursday, January 26

Acts 4:34

34 There were no needy people among them, because those who owned land or houses would sell them

20. We would reflect our purpose to Find God, Give hope, and do life together

Friday, January 27

Acts 2:42

42 All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.

21. Guidance for church leaders

Saturday, January 28

Acts 6:2-3, 7

So the Twelve called a meeting of all the believers. They said, “We apostles should spend our time teaching the word of God, not running a food program. And so, brothers, select seven men who are well respected and are full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will give them this responsibility.

So God’s message continued to spread. The number of believers greatly increased in Jerusalem, and many of the Jewish priests were converted, too.
