21 Day Prayer & Fasting // Jan 14th-Feb 4th
As we begin a new year together, we remind ourselves that prayer is not our last resort, it's our first response. Prayer should be a priority in our lives. Whether we're celebrating, mourning, seeking an answer, or simply saying 'thank you,' our first instinct should always be to go to God in prayer and seek Him.
#PrayFirst is a 21-day period of fasting and prayer designed to prioritize our relationship with God and focus our attention on what matters most. How you start the year matters. We want to encourage and empower you to start 2018 seeking God's wisdom, strength, and direction for your life.
Whether you’ve never prayed or fasted before, or if this is an annual spiritual discipline, the power of prayer isn't determined by the presentation but by the heart in seeking after God. It's not the eloquence of our words, it's the fullness of our heart directed towards God that changes everything. Let’s do this.
Divine Acceleration X Multiplication.
“Look to the Lord and his strength, seek his face always” -1 Chronicles 16:11
