September First Friday Fast


FRIDAY, September 6

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 “the nations”. Here are a few ideas to guide your prayer:

  • Pray that God would bring unity in our city amongst the diversity of nations represented

  • Pray for our “Festival of Nations” celebration on September 15 - that we would be reminded of our calling as a church to our city through it

  • Pray for those who are experiencing oppression as a result of their ethnic and/or national heritage

  • Pray for those whose access to the Gospel is limited by language - pray that the Holy Spirit would bring the message of salvation through Jesus Christ to them in some way and, if possible, through us

  • Pray that Sovereign Grace Church of Santa Ana would be a beacon of hope demonstrating true unity to those sectors of our community experiencing division
