Happy Sabbath


Call for Prayer and Fasting!

July 3 – 5, 2020

He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.”  Mark 9:29

On the onset of the pandemic and the impending lockdown the Prayer Team set daily hours of prayer. To date, we meet at 6am, 12:30pm, 6pm and 9pm. On Fridays we do not meet at 6pm and on Sabbath we do not meet at 12:30pm.  There is now a sense of urgency for us to call on everyone to join in prayer and fasting next week weekend (July 3-5).

There are many needs that warrant a response to Jesus' admonition; there are matters that require prayer and fasting. The world, the nation and the church currently face such matters. God will hear us as we respond to His Word in 2 Chronicles 7:13-15.  

Praying for the COVID-19 pandemic, all of its vicissitudes, The Global Church, Local church family, Plans for  reopening the church, Gainesville & Alachua County, Our Youth, Elderly, Those with disabilities, Caregivers, Unemployed, Homeless, Loss of love ones, The social, Economic, and Political Unrest.

Scripture tells us that fasting will help us grow a more intimate relationship with Christ and will open our eyes to what He wants to teach us.   When we are fasting for spiritual breakthroughs in our lives, we will reap benefits that we may not expect:

  • Deeper Intimacy with God
  • Answers to Fervent Prayer
  • Develop Humility before God
  • Gain Wisdom and Understanding
  • Authority over Demonic Strongholds
  • Repentance and Salvation

Tuesday through Thursday we prayerfully prepare for fasting, eating healthily a vegetarian diet with light soups and vegetables/fruits - preferably. Friday through Sunday would be days of fasting.
