Do you hear Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus? We are turning the page into a new year! We cannot remember a time, in our lifetime, when we are any more excited to close out a year, 2020, and step into a new year, 2021!
Prayer, Fasting, and Encounter!
We believe there is Room in the House to Meet with God! As we begin our new year with prayer and fasting, we will culminate the month with an Encounter Service on Sunday, January 31, at 6:30 PM! These Encounter Services are designed to allow you the opportunity to worship, wait in Holy Spirit’s presence, and receive more of God!
As we begin 2021, we would like to invite you, our Bellefontaine First Family to join us in a three week season of prayer and fasting.
We believe the discipline of fasting releases the anointing, the favor, and the blessing of God in the life of a Christian. Stated simply, we believe biblical fasting is refraining from food for a spiritual purpose. Fasting has always been a normal part of a relationship with God. As expressed by the impassioned plea of David in Psalm 42, fasting brings one into a deeper, more intimate and powerful relationship with the Lord. When you eliminate food from your diet for a number of days, your spirit becomes uncluttered by the things of this world and amazingly sensitive to the things of God.
We would like to encourage each of you to join us in a three week corporate fast beginning on January 4. We believe fasting is a spiritual discipline that allows us to remove distractions, intensify our focus on God, and stirs a power and anointing in our walk with God.
We have included some resources which might assist you in your fast below. Barb and I will be participating in a Daniel or partial fast.
Will you join us as we seek God together? Will you join your family of faith in focused prayer and intentional fasting? Will you prepare the way for God to give you fresh revelation, fresh vision, and clearer purpose?
