As pastors we are very expectant that the Lord will do a new thing in our midst as together we engage in in our season of prayer and fasting. We are standing on His Word as found in 2 Chronicles 7:14 – “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Together we will seek His face, meditate on His Word, and expect Him to move powerfully in our midst as individuals, as families, and as a congregation, He will surely come to us in fresh way!
Remember His many promises to us regarding prayer: “Men ought always to pray and never give up.” (Luke 18:1) “Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weaknesses, for we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.” (Romans 8:26)
Together we will ASK, SEEK and KNOCK and expect that: “He who comes to God must believe that HE IS, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently SEEK Him” (Hebrews 11:6). We are asking Him for an outpouring of His Spirit on our families, congregation and nation.
During these weeks of seeking His face, we are specifically setting 3 Fridays apart (January, 8, 15 & 22) for corporate prayer, and for the laying on of hands for healing. We ask you to be determined, definite and daring as together we “humble ourselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways.” He will hear from Heaven!
We bless you, our dear Immanuel’s family. And we believe that He will be glorified during this season of prayer, fasting and seeking His face!
