Rather than allowing the new year to be defined by a virus, health care challenges, or an election cycle, let’s choose a new response and begin 2022 by seeking God. We’re in an unprecedented time, and we need an unprecedented response from God. We invite you to join us in forty days of pursuing Him in a more intentional way. Watch this video to learn more:
Over the next 40 days, let’s make an effort towards the Lord that’s beyond the routine by doing do three specific things:
– Fasting — Fasting is abstaining from food for spiritual purposes. I have never fasted and failed to see God respond in my life. Choose a pattern of fasting each week. There’s no singular way to fast. You could pick a day a week, or a meal a week, or a certain type of food. Fill out the form below to let us know what day you’re fasting this week.
– Reading — Knowing the Word of God will change and strengthen you. Invest 40 minutes in reading the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) each day, at your own pace. You’ll likely read through them more than once!
– Praying — Commit to praying each day for the next 40 days. We will also have some specific opportunities to pray in different ways.
When the enemy comes in like a flood, we can’t afford to be passive. God will raise up a standard against him, and you and I are the standard-bearers. We are on assignment. Are you ready?
Onward in Him,
Pastor Allen Jackson
