The dates for our next "40 days" to pray and fast for Pensacola has just been announced and the website has been updated at www.PrayforPensacola.com We have a 40 day calendar for Pensacola and Escambia County.
The theme for 2014 is "secret place" based upon the NKJV of Psalm 91:1 "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." This year we will not be advertising this event or even meeting together. Instead we encourage you to print the calendar and take it into your "secret place" with the Father.
Please considering being a part of "40 days" this year. As Christians, it is important to recognize our responsibility to serve this world. Service starts with prayer and fasting and then it will work its way into the community through our local churches. Our prayer and fasting will empower our local churches to do the best job possible. Our prayer and fasting will give wisdom to our leaders and help them make the best decisions possible. Our prayer and fasting will turn the hearts of young people away for drugs, alcohol and other vices and back to God. But I think most importantly, our prayer and fasting for this community will change our own hearts. God will speak to us personally and share His plans that He has for Pensacola and then empower us to carry out His plans! JM
"God does nothing except in response to believing prayer." John Wesley
"God shapes the world by prayer. The more prayer there is in the world the better the world will be, the mightier the forces of against evil ..." E.M. Bounds
"Real ministry is made in the closet of prayer; God's men and women are made in secret. Their lives and their profoundest convictions are born in their secret communion with God. The burdened and tearful agony of their spirits, their weightiest and sweetest messages come form time alone with God. "The church today is weak in praying. The pride of learning is against the dependent humility of prayer. Prayer is with the church too often only official-a performance for the routine of service." (E.M.Bounds, 1989. Page 17.)
