40 Days of Prayer

Starting February 19–March

Prayer and fasting are fundamental to our faith as we endeavor to be transformed into the likeness of Christ. 

Scripture teaches that some things are only possible by prayer and fasting (Matthew 17:21). 

We encourage you to focus your hearts and your lives on the will of the Father. 

For the next 40 days, we will join together as a body of Christ and pray targeted prayers for our own spiritual growth, for our community, for our church, and for our government.

We also encourage you to read the scriptures given with certain days.

The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16).
