PRAYER AND FASTING DAY

ENCOUNTER JESUS

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas. Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules about food, which don’t help those who follow them. HEBREWS 13:8-9

The writer of Hebrews was writing to a struggling group of Christians who were facing persecution and challenges that were having a significant impact on their faith and their lives. Some of them were beginning to consider returning back to Judaism to save themselves from persecution whilst others were just becoming a little bit disillusioned with unanswered prayers.

The writer urged them to remember that Jesus had not changed and He was still the same person they put their trust and hope in and He was the one that bought salvation by the giving of his life.

So today we want to re-engage with Jesus and make sure we are not lured away by strange new attractive ideas that promise much but deliver very little.

Today as we pray I am praying that you will encounter Jesus in a transformative way and that encounter will enrich and embolden all that God has placed in you to come out in service of him.

So for our prayer and fasting day we are going to use encountering Jesus as our reference point for prayer and pray that God grants us a renewed experience of meeting Jesus who is the Alpha and Omega.
