"Lord we have tasted and seen that You are good. We desire to take our refuge in You! (Psalm 34:8) We humble ourselves and pray - we pray in faith to know You more fully, for faith in Your timing and in Your provision of a Senior Pastor. We draw near to you in faith, knowing that you are Jehovah Jireh, our provider. (Hebrews 11:6)"
As we continue the Cultivate campaign, we are responding to the elders request to join them in prayer and fasting for a month, focusing on the search for a new Senior Pastor. Fasting can be explained as voluntarily going without food - or any other regularly enjoyed, good gift from God - for a spiritual purpose. We fast from the things of this world because we have tasted and seen the goodness of the invisible and infinite God, and are desperately hungry for more of Him. As you continue to fast this week, model your prayers after the passages from Psalms and Hebrews above.
