Each month, we release a list of “prayer points” to guide churchwide prayer and intercession. We invite you to join us in praying for these specific areas (listed below).
January is a month for corporate prayer and fasting.
At the start of each year, we set aside days to pray, fast and seek the face of God and His hand upon our lives for the New Year. In Matthew 6, Jesus says that fasting – like prayer and giving – grows your relationship with God. Fasting will increase your sensitivity to God’s voice and allow you to connect more deeply with God’s work within and around you.
Don’t go from no fasting to attempting a week-long fast. Start with one meal; maybe fast one meal a day for several weeks. Seek the Lord for how He would have you fast specifically.
Pray to receive revelation on prayer
Help me, O Lord, to understand that prayer is my personal responsibility, not something someone else can do for me.
Pray to understand more about the holiness we are called to
1 Peter 1:14-16 TPT// As God’s obedient children, never again shape your lives by the desires that you followed when you didn’t know better. 15 Instead, shape your lives to become like the Holy One who called you. 16 For Scripture says: “You are to be holy, because I am holy.”
