Repentance (Week 1 of 8)

Kingdom Culture is taking the next eight Thursdays to fast and pray. Our last day of fasting will be on Thursday, November 17th, the week before Thanksgiving (… yeah, we’re not fasting on turkey day).

Eight is the number for new beginnings and we are positioning ourselves to align with God and are asking Him to do a new thing. We encourage you to join us. 

God is calling us as a church and as individuals to ENGAGE! We want to walk in the love, truth, and power of Jesus.

Engage: To occupy, attract, participate, involve (someone’s interest or attention), or to become involved in or with.

We want to engage God, and to have Him engage us. If we seek Him with all our hearts, He promises that He will be found. This is a critical time in the life of our church and world.

Why we are fasting: We are fasting for our church and community. We are told in the Word that we are to love God and other people. In fact, the entire Bible can be summed up by these two commands. We can only do that with His help. Fasting is where we deny ourselves and our appetites for a period of time so that we can align with God, receive His strategies, and see His Kingdom come and will be done.

 

This Week’s Prayer Point: Repentance

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Our land needs healing: the land of our nation, church, and even our very souls. God desires to heal us, but first we must repent. It means to see things the way God does and change your mind and behavior as a result. We need revelation of His word by the power of His Holy Spirit.

Prayer Scripture: Psalm 139:23-24Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

Prayer: Jesus, we have missed it in so many areas. We are asking for forgiveness for our sin against You and for Your mercy. Holy Spirit of the Living God we ask that You would shine Your light upon the darkness of our hearts and minds, and give us the grace to get in step with You and Your purposes for our lives and our church. Amen.
