JFA Church Family,
Welcome to 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting! We are excited about what God is going to do in your life during the next 21 days. We say this often, but at JFA, we believe that “prayer moves the hand of God.”
Prayer brings heaven’s influence into earthly situations. More than ever, we are in desperate need of the move of God in our world, our nation, our community, and our families. Prayer is a key ingredient in navigating this journey with the hope and assurance of Jesus. We know the God who holds the future in His hands, and we have complete access to Him through prayer! Many times, we act first and then want God to help our situation; however, prayer should be our first response, not our last resort.
As we go on this journey over the next 21 days, you will see that every day there is a daily focus, a daily declaration, a corresponding verse, and a prayer for that day. The Word of God is one of the most valuable tools we have to build a dynamic daily prayer life. It brings power, truth, and encouragement to our prayer time, and it can dissolve fear, worry and anxiety as we place our trust in His promises. Our intent is to have this guide help you find a new level of purpose, effectiveness, and enjoyment in your prayer life. While prayer does take commitment and can require discipline to develop into a daily habit, we also want to remember that it’s a “get to” not a “got to.” It is a privilege to be able to come to God in prayer! When you discover the beauty of daily conversation with God, you will experience His life-changing presence! You will be reminded... before the day begins, before you go to bed, before you go to work or school, before you send that text or email, before you eat, drive or travel, before you worry… in every situation… First, Spend Time in Prayer! Prayer changes everything!
We love you, church!
