The theme of the 10 days of prayer and fasting is Send Your Rain, in line with the rhema word for KCI this year. It says in Deuteronomy 11:10-12;

The land you are entering to take over is not like the land of Egypt, from which you have come, where you planted your seed and irrigated it by foot as in a vegetable garden. But the land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven. It is a land the Lord your God cares for; the eyes of the Lord your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end.

What we are about to see is like nothing we have seen before. What we are about to experience will be on a scale we have never experienced before. What is about to happen will come from God’s amazing grace not just our own efforts. God is leading us to conquer new ground and He is sending His rain to bring a new season of great fruitfulness.

Our 10 days starts on Thursday 1 September and includes five key elements which are outlined below.

1. Daily Prayer

We are asking everyone to commit to praying for 1 hour each day. This time can be taken during the time you would ordinarily spend eating a meal!

2. Daily Prayer Meetings

    There will be prayer meetings held on each of the 10 days. Each meeting is owned by a particular team but everyone is welcome to attend as many and whichever they are able to. All morning prayer meetings run from 6.30-7.30am at King's House Flat 10.

    1st (Thursday): Morning Prayer with the office team
    2nd (Friday): Morning Prayer with Pastor James and Paul Webb  
    United Church Prayer
    3rd (Saturday): Family prayer in the homes
    4th (Sunday): Prayer and worship Sunday
    5th (Monday): Morning Prayer with Lyndsey & Dorota
    6th (Tuesday): Morning Prayer with Paul Harding & Greg
    7th (Wednesday): Morning Prayer with Pastor Wesley & Tim
    8th (Thursday): Morning Prayer with the office team
    9th (Friday): Morning Prayer with Pastor Wilana & Clair
    10th (Saturday): Teens, Twenties, Thirties Prayer

    3. Fasting

    We are asking everyone to fast in some way during the 10 days, whether it be something specific for the whole period or a meal per day.

    4. Prayer in Small Groups

    We would like small group meetings to focus on prayer during the 10 days. For newer groups this might be an introduction to prayer and fasting, and for others this may be extended times of prayer.

    5. Sunday Celebration

    On Sunday 11 September we will be gathering as a church for a powerful time of praise and worship.
