Trinity Church is seeking the Lord’s direction in prayer as we embark on this exciting new year together. January is a month devoted to prayer for our Pastoral Search and our Mission Focus. Next week kicks off a Week of Prayer with a Concert of Prayer for the whole family on Sunday afternoon. We are asking everyone to engage in our week of prayer at some level both personally and corporately. You may have also heard about the invitation to fast as a means to aid your prayers. Steve Springsted brought a helpful article on fasting to our pastoral staff meeting yesterday. David Mathis encourages us to:
- Start small.
- Plan what you’ll do instead of eating.
- Consider how it will affect others.
- Try different kinds of fasting.
- Fast from something other than food.
- Don’t think of white elephants.
Remember that the focus is to pray and fasting is an aid toward that end. Together let’s put on the armor of God, ‘’…praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.” Ephesians 6:18. See you on Sunday as Pastor Dave Jenkins unpacks this passage in his conclusion to the Life is a Spiritual Battle series.Fasting for Beginners Article
