At the beginning of each year, we set aside time for prayer and fasting as a church. We encourage each individual to pray and ask God what he would lead them to do for this time of fasting.
Set aside time to worship together at 7 PM. Coastal Kids will be available for ages birth to 5 years old.
Fasting is an important element in our walk with Christ. During fasting, we take time to silence distractions and get alone with God. In our noisy world and culture, this is especially relevant.
When we are less distracted, we can hear from God and His word. This clarity and intentionality brings the focus on God, rather than ourselves.
Don’t just give something up, but be sure to fill the time you would have spent with consuming food or media with time in prayer and the word of God. Step outside of your normal routine. Go for a walk during lunch time, wake up early, spend time in silence. Go outside with only your Bible and journal.
We love to equip you in this 21 Day journey! We have Pray First guide booklets available for everyone. Simply attend a weekend service or one of our early morning prayer gatherings and pick up your booklet. Also, each day has a prayer focus, these will be made available on your worship guide.
Come to the Auditorium for Morning Prayer! From January 4th-24th we will host Morning Prayer Monday – Friday from 6:30 AM- 7:30 AM and Saturdays at 9 AM. There will be a daily prayer focus and short devotional each morning. After the devotional we will play worship music on the speakers, dim the lights and continue in a time of personal prayer. Please know, Morning Prayer continues all year! For the rest of the year we will have Morning Prayer continuing each Wednesday at 6:30 AM.
Fasting can take many forms. Consider fasting something that is important to you, so that you can spend more time focusing on the God in prayer. During this time you may consider giving up TV, social media, food, sugar, meat, or drinking alcohol. Pray for what God is specifically calling you to do.
