Array ( [rules] => Array ( ) [exclusions] => Array ( ) )
April 5, 2016
We are inviting everyone to fast and pray as God leads. Our church bulletin serves as a useful guide for considering specific needs.
Prayer and fasting are coupled together. This is not so much a regular practice, so that whenever we pray we fast, but as an occasional and special arrangement, so that when we need to seek God for some particular direction and blessing, we turn aside from food and other distractions to do so… the evidence is plain, that special enterprises need special prayer and that special prayer may well involve fasting.
