Prayer and Fasting Guide

Jesus gave His followers one mission: make disciples from every nation. It is our desire to continually align our church, our families, and our individual lives with the mission of Christ. However, it would be a mistake for us to think we can accomplish the mission of Christ in our own strength. We need the power of the Holy Spirit to engage in the mission of Jesus. Like the first disciples, we are calling our church family to commit themselves to prayer and fasting as we seek the fullness of the Holy Spirit to engage the mission of Christ.

This prayer guide is intended to help you walk through this initial week of prayer and fasting. Each day is centered around a prayer focus. Within that prayer focus, we have included passages of Scripture for you to meditate over and center your praying around. Also, a guiding prayer has been written from the Scriptures. This written prayer is intended to help those who have never formed their prayers from specific passages. In alignment with the daily prayer focus, there are suggested activities you can engage to further express your hunger for God. Please review the general instruction concerning fasting included at the end of this guide before you begin.

I would like to thank The First Initiative Prayer Team for compiling this prayer guide. Their tireless effort and commitment to prayer have been vital to planning the week of prayer and fasting.

With anticipation in what Jesus will do as we pray,
Pastor Titus
