As a church, we spend 21 days every January in prayer and fasting. Starting every January we will be meeting each Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 PM and each Saturday at 9 AM to pray corporately. We encourage you to spend time daily fasting and in personal prayer. Below you will find resources to help.
We at Relate Church have always placed great value on having a personal relationship with God the Father through prayer. In ever area of life, we believe that the wisdom received from God through prayer is paramount before making decisions. Simply put, we try to pray before we act. Many times people act first and then want God to bail them out of that situation, but prayer should be our first response, not our last resort. Understanding the necessity of prayer is not enough. In order for it to become a part of our life, it needs to become something we look forward to doing. I’m convinced most people don’t enjoy prayer because they have never been taught how to pray. That’s where this simple prayer journal can help. Using several prayer models out of the Bible and having some guides to make prayer more personal, this booklet is designed to bring joy into your time with God. When you discover the beauty of daily conversation with Him, you’ll experience the presence of God that will change your life.
This handy reference guide, Seven Basic Steps to Successful Fasting, will help make your time with the Lord more spiritually rewarding. We encourage you to keep it with you during your fast and refer to it often because it gives easy-to-follow suggestions on how to begin your fast, what to do while you fast, and how to end your fast properly.
