Over and over again in the Scriptures, we see God encouraging us to seek Him continually, with all our heart, early in the morning and late in the night. Graciously, He promises and reminds us that He will reward those who seek Him. He will give strength and peace to those who seek Him. What a great opportunity for us at the beginning of 2023, to say with these three days how much we want God.
This year in particular we want to ask God to help us turn our eyes more to Him in the midst of all of the distractions around us, to pour His mercy out on us and those around us, and to show us how He wants us to love others around us in a way that the world glorifies our Heavenly Father and puts their faith in Him. Our theme for this year is that the world would see a glimpse of who God is “by our love” for one another. And so as we turn our eyes to Him, we need Him to show us the opportunities around us to do just that.
So whether you are fasting from food, screens, or something else, we want to go without so that we can have more of God. And while fasting is mostly done in secret, there is also great benefit in knowing that you are joining in with others in this powerful endeavor. For this reason, we would love for you to register by clicking the Email Subscription button and let us know that you are committing to seeking God in this way over these three days. We will send an email out to you with some encouragement and Scripture that will help you pray with purpose.
We look forward to drawing closer to God with you!
