“After we had spoken to the local church here about the 40 days of prayer and fasting one of the Indigenous male teachers came and asked for the prayer sheets. He had planned to join with another staff member to pray each day. He was away from the community for a time to attend meetings but we caught up with him yesterday at Church to encourage him. His face was radiant and he said “You know it has been good to miss some meals, to stop eating and spend that time in prayer. I have been praying for my list of friends”. Praise God!

We will keep talking to the folk and continue prayerfully to encourage them to become involved. The church doesn’t come together for regular prayer though many individuals tell us they pray, and it is something they have said they want to do.

God is stirring hearts and we look forward with great anticipation to see what He is going to do in this place. Numbulwar was layed on a solid foundation with the Indigenous people asking the Anglican Mission to start a work here in 1952.

Bless you in your ministry and work for the Lord.”

 

Annie Cathcart wrote to her prayer network: “Come together to pray with the Body of Christ in Toowoomba during the 40 Days of National Prayer and Fasting. Victory Life Church at Northlands shopping Centre is opening their church from Tuesday till Friday for this important event. Prayer meetings will be held every night from 7.00pm with different worship teams and guest speakers as well as some DVD’s on the screen. The meetings will go for 1 hour, but people are welcome to stay longer for prayer. If you want to see miracles happen in our Region and Nation please come along and join this Prayer Army.

GOD’S POWER IS UNLEASHED – WHEN GOD’S PEOPLE PRAY!”

Warwick Marsh wrote: “My wife and I walk with a group of people most Saturdays. On our walk this week, KJ told me about a close Catholic friend of hers that got the 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting Brochure in the Koorong Catalogue. She decide to do something. She has not only got her Charismatic prayer group doing the 40 Days but she spoke to the priest and got the whole Parish observing this period of prayer and all the groups in her parish.”

Does the idea of 40 Days of Fasting alarm you?

Don’t worry you don’t have to go without all food for 40 days ! Invite Jesus to Lord over all aspects of your life – and become aware of any areas of your life that can become healthier, free-er and joy filled by foregoing unnecessary things for a season. Loss  is gain!

I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ! (Phil 3:8)

Fasting from one meal a day or desserts or rich foods can REVIVE your focus on God. Fasting from TV can REVIVE how you spend precious time. For more ideas see: http://40daysofprayer.com.au/40-days-of-prayer-fasting/
