WHY FAST AND PRAY?

Fasting is the biblical practice of choosing to abstain from food for a certain period of time. It is a spiritual discipline, the purpose of which is to become more like Jesus. The motivation of our fasting is to draw closer to the heart of God. Fasting is a Christian discipline to break the power of the flesh in our life – our desires, sins, and cravings – and to feed on the Holy Spirit.

“Fasting helps us to express, to deepen, and to confirm the resolution that we are ready to sacrifice anything, even ourselves, to attain the Kingdom of God.” – Scot McKnight.

In summary, fasting is not about getting from God but it is about getting to God.
There are different types of fasting, and we recommend prayerfully considering which practice is best for you at this time.

 

James

Peace offering,

The Lord has shown us to walk righteous and how to keep our covenant to our heavenly father.

By this covenant we must :”love thy neighbor and love for the sake of love.”- Lord Jesus Christ

These words are a clear sight to peace and unity for us all.

The mission here is to serve our Heavenly father. In order to do that we must apply all efforts in righteousness. A quality of being morally right or justifiable. Currently there are 17 countries: India ,Lebanon,Egypt,Jordan and so many more.They need our help! Yes, they have faith and the lord is with them also but, what are we doing if we are not giving to those in need?

“ For anyone who brings so much as a cup of water to these little ones because they are my disciple will certainly not lose their reward.” - Lord Jesus Christ

In any faith we see compassion is key. Right now there are families in need and we consider them our neighbors. If Distance is within the mind and everything is within the boundaries of our imagination then maybe we can open a new perspective to an unexplored peace. If waters were sent out in large volume to the 17 countries in need due to severe lack of water, we could form peace and unity in which we stand for. A vision is seen of harmony and providence from our country with an enlightenment of what faith does for all. To have faith in God we must have faith in good and giving to one another spreads a connective message only the holy spirit can fulfill, and we can find that in our wanting to serve and love God. We find love in each other by acceptance as all to be God's creations and made in the likeness of him. Therefore, we won't discredit his work, instead we embrace,cherish and preserve.

Water is the very essence of life provided by our heavenly father when he split the four rivers. For the sake of our planet; water must be sustained in order to grow. Our water sent over INSTEAD of cash could make a difference for those who have no water to buy as an option. In this cause we can have faith that our intent will be of grace, mercy and love for all. Thank you and God blesses.

WHY PRAY?

The power of prayer deepens our dependence on Him and sharpens our faith. When we pray we choose to put everything in God’s hands knowing that His hand will show up in every aspect of our lives and in those around us.

The act of prayer is what creates our intimacy with God. We can practice the spiritual habit of prayer knowing that our requests go to a God who hears us and who invites us to be intimately involved in His plan. For this reason, we pray in confidence knowing that our prayers are powerful and can bring about change in any circumstance.

There are no levels to this. We all can enter prayer with a posture of trust, openness, and faith, believing that God can do far more than we could even ask or imagine.  It’s not about our circumstance, it’s about our heart stance.
