Prayer & Fasting: an Invitation

The Leadership team (Pastoral & Lay Elders & BOD) have been praying and fasting for a few weeks now and we’d like to invite you to join us.

We have a sense that God will give us some keys in this season and we want to be diligent and faithful to seek God’s heart in this way. One of the benefits of fasting is that it is a spiritual exercise that forms us. In other words, as we fast, we are changed. This is in addition to whatever developments come about that drew us to fast in the first place!

Isaiah 58 has come up a few times in prayer recently… but not necessarily the part of the passage that is normally looked at for advice on fasting (which is all still good and relevant). The part of the chapter that seems to be highlighted to us is a promise of guidance, rebuilding and new life. This is what we’re bringing before God.

“I will always show you where to go…” “you’ll use the old rubble of past lives for something new… restore old ruins… rebuild the foundations…” Isaiah 58

We are fasting every Monday until Advent. If you can, please join us in some way. There are many ways to fast. See the link below for a booklet that gives some practical advice.

This time of Fasting and Prayer will lead to our AGM which is November 30.
