First Friday Fast



This year, we'll be spending the first Friday of every month fasting together and praying for a particular topic. Church members who fast for all 12 Fridays will be invited to a year-end party to celebrate the answers to our prayers. If fasting is new to you, here are some instructions. 

This month, in light of our small group direction for the rest of this fall, we’re praying for the theme of “holiness”. Here are a few ideas to guide your prayer:

  • Pray for a grace-motivated pursuit of holiness among the members of our church

  • Pray for a pursuit of holiness that’s not legalistic, but filled with joy

  • Pray that our conduct as a church would be the light of the Gospel shining toward our neighbors

  • Pray that our growth in holiness would lead us to be even more outward oriented toward our neighbors and not ingrown

  • Pray that holiness would not be seen as a limitation to our freedom in Christ, but seen as an expression of our freedom in Christ

  • Pray that the Holy Spirit would be present and active in the process of sanctifying us
