Twice a year as a church community, we come together to pray for 21 days. This 21-day period of fasting and prayer is designed to prioritise our relationship with God and focus on His truths. During this time, our hope for you is that you would experience God in a new and fresh way.

As a community, we will unify and set aside time to pray, fast and wait on God to recalibrate our thoughts and restore our hope.

If you sense God has more for your life, 21 Days of Prayer is a great place to start believing Him for everything He has in store for you. We will see the breakthrough!‌‌‌‌‌‌‌

Whether you join us in person or online, we would love for you to be part of 21 Days of Prayer.

“The earnest prayer of a righteous man has great power and wonderful results.” James 5:16b (TLB).

Over the next 21 days, we are going on a journey. It’s the final journey Jesus took with His disciples before going to the cross.

Just as the disciples needed to experience Jesus’ teaching and grow through this journey, so do we. Let’s be expectant as we set out on this amazing journey together.

Every Thursday through our 21 Days of Prayer we will be hosting a 15 minute Facebook live to help you build a lifestyle of prayer. Get ready to experience the power of seeking God through prayer and worship.

Every Thursday 7-7:15am
3rd, 10th, and 17th of March 2022

During this season of 21 Days of Prayer, we encourage fasting as a spiritual next step that can bring clarity and revelation into your life. Fasting is simply the practice of abstaining from something in order to direct our attention and focus towards God.

Remember that your personal fast should be challenging, but it is critical to understand your body, your alternatives and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and obey what the Holy Spirit tells you to do. Through fasting and prayer, the Holy Spirit can transform your life. You can also choose to fast at other times of the year as you seek God.

Scripture Reading: Luke 9:57-62

As Jesus and His disciples travel along the road, they encounter three different people. The first is probably a teacher of the law (Matthew 18:19-20) who expects Jesus to follow the pattern established by other rabbis. The second seems to be in the midst of a year of mourning after his father’s death and asks to complete the family obligations. The third loves his family very much and finds he is conflicted about following Jesus.

In fact, the men seem to raise valid points. If you or I were to stand in their shoes, we would probably say similar things. Surely Jesus ought to take their circumstances into consideration? From a human standpoint, that would seem to be the most compassionate thing to do.

But Jesus isn’t speaking from a human standpoint. He isn’t calling them to follow the normal human way of doing things. He is calling them to follow Him and to be reframed by Heaven’s perspective.

Jesus’ responses to those who want to follow Him are not as callous as might appear at first reading. He is actually addressing sentimental motives and values that lie at the root of what these three people are proposing, and He is calling them to greater things.

Right at the beginning of the journey, Jesus calls these followers, firstly, to exchange human expectations for Kingdom possibilities; secondly, to prioritise following Him over all other obligations; and thirdly, to be willing to have their allegiances transformed.

We should, therefore, not be surprised when He does the same with us! The thing is, it’s not really about us at all — it’s about Jesus. As His followers, human sentiment or any other human-oriented perspective cannot be our ultimate guide. He has to come first in everything.

Response

Have you allowed sentiment or some other human perspective too much say in the past? Ask God’s forgiveness and seek His help in putting this right. What ‘greater thing’ is Jesus calling you to consider today?

Pray

Ask God to transform your human expectations into Kingdom possibilities. To shift areas of limited perspective and enable you to see from His unlimited perspective.
