Wanting some practical pointers on fasting?
3rd QUARTER 2018 - Interceding for Our Children
As the song goes, "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world." And now we are setting aside a special day to pray, not just for our families, but especially for our children. Whether your children are grown or still babies, this is a time to come together corporate interceding for the Holy Spirit to be poured out on their lives. Join us as we pray for our children!

4th QUARTER 2018 - Interceding for the Least of These
Imagine you are a parent about to leave your children, knowing you will not see them again until the Kingdom of Heaven. What is the most important thing you could say to them? Jesus had that dilemma as He prepared to return to heaven after His crucifixion. What was the burden of His last words to His disciples? As we read through His last prayers and counsel in John 15-17, we discover repeating themes: unity, love, and seeking God through prayer.
1st QUARTER 2019 - World-Changing Prayer Warriors
As we read through the Bible, we find stories of individuals who prayed, and the answer to their prayers changed the world. Our prayers may not change the entire world, but they will change the world around us—or even just the world of one person—for eternity. We may not even realize the impact of our prayers on this side of eternity, but one day—one day soon—Jesus will take us home. We’ll have all eternity to hear how God used the prayers of ordinary people like Hannah, like you, like me, to change the world for Him.

2nd QUARTER 2018 - Interceding for Our Marriages
The enemy is doing all in his power to destroy our lives, and he starts his first attack against the family, and against our marriages. He knows if he can break that down, he has us. Society is falling apart as a result of so many broken homes. Now is the time to take a stand, and say no more. Now is the time to pray for your spouse as you've never prayed before. Join us as we lift up couples (and singles too) on this special day of prayer and fasting.
1st QUARTER 2018 - Interceding for Our Family
We all have loved ones that we long to see have a closer walk with God. The theme for this quarter's day of prayer and fasting are titled, "Made Strong Through the Power of the Word: Interceding for Our Family." These materials will give you helpful tools to pray together as a family, and as a church family for your loved ones. (These program materials can be used again and again.)
4th QUARTER 2017 - FIGHTING FOR THE WORLD
This day of prayer and fasting is focused on praying for the world around us. That means our communities, our churches, our leaders, and those way beyond our border. Through the provided materials and program outline, as well as continuing suggested prayer activities, we believe you and your church will be blessed.
3rd QUARTER 2017 - FIGHTING FOR OUR HEARTS
Some may think it’s selfish to pray for their own heart needs, but it’s actually essential. The person with the greatest power to help or hinder God’s work in our lives is our self. Even Jesus prayed for Himself. So this day of prayer focus is a bit different and may feel a little uncomfortable at first, but it’s a great opportunity to encourage and help people pray together for their personal battles and lives in ways they may not have prayed before. And it's sure to build close community! (These materials were written for 3rd Quarter 2017, but can be re-used again and again!)
2ND QUARTER 2017 - FIGHTING FOR EACH OTHER
Life can be hard. We face challenges and struggles that can seem overwhelming. Finances. Health. Relationships. Battles with sin and temptations. Loneliness. But this is all because we are living in the midst of a Great Controversy battle. With these prayer materials, rather than being overcome by the struggles, you can learn to fight for each other in prayer.

1ST QUARTER 2017 - FIGHTING FOR OUR CHURCH
What breaks your heart? What drives you to your knees? Has your heart ever broken for the church? Have you found yourself compelled to fast and pray specifically for the church? This prayer program follows the story of Nehemiah and his breaking heart for the church of his day. Join us as we pray for God to work in our church!
