Simply Listen is a month-long call to prayer and fasting for our congregation, beginning June 1. These 30 days are an opportunity to turn down the noise in our lives, and focus upon the voice of Jesus. Our desire as a congregation is to simply listen for how God is calling us to grow together. Just as Jesus’ invitation is to all, we invite everyone who desires to grow deeper in their spiritual life and relationship with Christ to join in this special time.
If you dwell in Me and My voice dwells in you, anything you ask will come to pass for you. Your abundant growth and your faithfulness as My followers will bring glory to the Father.JESUS
The spiritual practice of fasting is found throughout scripture, often as a companion to prayer. Through fasting we participate with our whole self in seeking the power and strength of God to sustain us. Fasting involves some form of self-denial, abstaining from food or various activities. There are many ways to fast, but what matters most is the desire of your heart. Remember – God desires obedience more than sacrifice.
