Desiring God Through Prayer & Fasting

 “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matt. 4:4)

As we announced these past two weeks, we will seeking God through fasting and be praying on Sept. 14 & 28.   Below is a great quote on fasting to help you reflect and prepare for this Friday.

“As an act of faith, Christian fasting is an expression of dissatisfied contentment in the all-sufficiency of Christ.  It is an expression of secure Hunger for God....and happy longing for the all-satisfying fullness of Christ.  Christian fasting does not tremble in the hope of earning anything from Christ.  It looks away from itself to the final payment of Calvary for every blessing it will ever receive.  Christian fasting is not self-wrought discipline that tries to deserve more from God.  It is a hunger for God awakened by the taste of God
freely given in the gospel.” 
—  (John Piper)

If you're new to prayer and fasting, we recommend reading "A Hunger For God: Desiring God Through Fasting & Prayer" by John Piper. (Free PDF here: )

We look forward to seeing you at 7:30 p.m.
