Jesus told us to GO and MAKE disciples of all nations teaching them to obey everything that he commanded us (Matt. 28:18-20). In that vein, I am asking you, the pastors and laity of the Northeast District to join my wife, Darlene and me as we go fast and pray.
Beginning Wednesday, October 25, and then every Wednesday through December 20. Darlene and I will be fasting and praying for you and every Jesus follower in your church to become more missional. That is every UM member engaged in life giving changes for Jesus Christ in our personal & corporate mission field.
A fast for you may not look like a fast for me. I will be engaging in a 24 hour fast. I will not eat after dinner on Tuesdayevening until my evening meal on Wednesday. You may not be able to skip meals; therefore find something else to fast like a favorite activity (TV, social media, electronic games, etc.). Remember, the point is to pray and connect with God.
Darlene, as she did for Annual Conference, will be sending out a prayer focus every Wednesday. This will be posted on Facebook and sent as an email. If you desire to receive this via email, please send your address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Imagine for a moment if we go fast and pray what might happen when God creates divine opportunities for us to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our family members, friends and neighbors!
Will you go fast and pray? God is at work my friends. Let’s join him in the most important work on the planet, to bring the Kingdom of God as it is in heaven so it will be on earth. I’m excited to see and hear what God will do in us and through us.
