King's Church International will start a period of 21 days of Prayer & Fasting on Monday 4 January.
The theme for 2016 is Send Your Rain and we’re focusing on praying for God to send His rain individually and as a church. We are going to be seeking prosperity for our lives and believe it’s time for a major outpouring.
In particular, we are praying for:
revival in the home
revival in the church
revival in the nation
As a congregation we are also going to push through for daily fasting, daily focus and fasting for change. For the daily fasting we are encouraging everyone to fast one meal a day and not eating choice foods or consuming alcohol for 21 days.
The daily focus will be setting apart time each day to focus on revival, this will be a separate hour from your usual devotional time. We are also encouraging families to pray once a week together, for people to attend morning prayer meetings, united prayer meetings and the morning of prayer and worship on Sunday 24 January which will conclude the 21 days.
We will also be fasting for change; we encourage you to have a goal for your fast and write it down at the start of the 21 days. You should also consider what you fasted in 2015 and how you can develop your fasting. If taking a ‘total fast’ for any length of time please consult a doctor or health practitioner.
The key verses for this period are:
"You will find me if you seek me with all your heart."
"Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth."
"The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow."
