The leadership of Grace Fellowship has decided to focus on a season of prayer & fasting as we begin 2022. As we launch into a new year and settle into regular rhythms of life, we must be intentional to not just go through the motions. God is calling us to truly follow Him in every moment, to seek His face consistently. Remember, the way to an abundant life is to abide with Christ and seek first His kingdom (John 15 and Matthew 6). We must BE with Jesus before we DO the works of Jesus. Our roots must come before our fruits. The fruit of our ministry plans for 2022 will be won in this dedicated time of prayer and fasting.
The theme of our time in prayer and fasting these 21 days is “Seeking His Presence.”
- The 21 days begin on January 9 and end on January 29.
- A 21 day prayer guide will be linked below for us to use together during this time.
- Please join us for special times of prayer and worship (Online/In-person) on these evenings from 7-8:15pm:
Sunday, January 9 | Wednesdays, January 12, 19, 26 | Saturday, January 29.
- Our Life Groups will be participating in these services as well and not expected to meet as usual.
- There will be childcare for these services birth – age 5. Elementary students and older will be joining their families in the services.
- Coffee & tea will be available the evening of each service from 6:30-7pm.
- GFC will be open M-F at lunch for prayer from12-1pm.
During this 21 days of prayer and fasting, we want to come together as a unified worshipping community and ask the Lord, “How can I learn to seek Your presence. How can I abide with You Lord for the sake of Your glory in my home, in my neighborhood, in my city, and to the ends of the earth?” Use these daily devotionals to help guide your thinking. We pray you will find it practical and helpful to learn how to seek His presence in every area of your life, every single day.
We realize an extended season of spiritual focus, fasting, etc. are new thoughts for some and many do not have a background or much experience with these ideas. As you read through the information below, let God’s goodness and grace provided through the Cross cover you as you consider how to be involved. Choose a next step that’s best for you and your family based on where you are spiritually and not on anyone else’s expectations. So with whatever successes, challenges or doubts you face during these seasons of prayer and self-denial, give yourself and others much grace. We all need it.
