Fasting and Prayer Network

Plan Of Salvation

 


Church Theme: "Fasting God's Vision through Praying, Prioritizing, Proclaiming, and Participating"  Acts 1:12-24; Matt. 6:33; Luke 8:1-3; Romans 12:3-8



 It's As Simple As...

A. WHO? Anyone. All ages can participate.  Christians from our church or other locations are praying and fasting also.

B. WHEN? Wednesdays (moring to 6:00pm) or you may choose to do a few hours only.  Begin where you are.  God looks at the heart.

C. WHAT? Drink only Liquids and have crackers if needed, or choose another sacrifice.  Spend more time in prayer and the Word.

D. HOW? You can fast one Wednesday per month, or as many Wednesdays as you are led too.  Remember there will be many prayer warriors also fasting that day with you.

 


THE SJMBC FASTING AND PRAYER NETWORK WILL HELP CHRISTIANS EXPERIENCE AND DEVELOP THE DISCIPLINE OF PRAYER AND FASTING, OUR PURPOSE FOR FASTING IS:

1.  Cleanses us mentally, physically and spiritually.

2.  Brings breakthroughs in our tough times and our battles.

3.  Breaks strongholds that Satan has over us.

4.  Quickens and makes us more sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

5.  Keeps our "Fleshy" desires under control.

6.  Strengthens our time with God.

7.  Looses power in our lives and ministry for greater service.

8.  Binds families and our church congregation together.

9.  Makes clear God's purpose for our lives and ministries.

10. Teaches us the value and victory of a lifestyle of Fasting and Prayer.  


"Is this not the fast which I choose, to loose the bond of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoked, and to let the oppressed go free, and break every yoke?"  Isaiah 58:6
