It’s time to fast and pray at Connect. Why? Because the enemy wants to divide us, but Jesus tells us to stand united in Christ. America is divided; anger is raging; therefore, the Church needs to come together to pray and fast so it can stand united in Jesus.

Beginning October 1, we will pray for our country, for our leaders, for a peaceful election, and for unity in the Church. Here’s what you can expect during this initiative:

  • 1 united prompt to pray each day
  • 1 meal a week to fast and pray
  • 2 nights to gather in person at Connect for prayer

Join us in the Worship Center from 7:00-7:45pm for Prayer Nights at Connect:

  • Monday, October 12
  • Monday, November 9

Keep in mind the words of Jesus in the gospel of John 17:20-21 – “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”

How To Experience 40 Days of Prayer:

  • If you do not pray daily, this is a great excuse to begin! Here’s a prayer tool you can use:
    • A = Adoration: Acknowledge God’s greatness through adoration.
    • C = Confession: Confess your sins/faults/failures and ask Him to forgive and strengthen you.
    • T = Thanksgiving: Give thanks to God for love, hope, life, relationships, purpose.
    • S = Supplication: ask God to provide for your needs, for specific things.
  • Use the daily prompt as a supplement to your regular prayer time.
  • Read the Scripture out loud.
    • What does this passage say about God, Jesus or His plan?
    • What does this passage say about humans?
    • What do I need to change?
    • Who can I share this Scripture with?
  • Fast (abstain) for one meal each week; channel your hunger into a time of prayer with Almighty God. If you want to learn more about biblical fasting, here’s a helpful article.
