What difference could the power of 40 day of coordinated, concentrated prayer to God by hundreds of people in El Dorado and Union County make? You’re invited to be a part of this powerful movement beginning October 1, 2017.
“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops.” -James 5:16-18
Here’s what you need to know:
When and Who. Just think. During October 1 – November 9, 2017, Hundreds of Christians across El Dorado and Union County will be praying the same prayer along with you each day for 40 days!
What and How. Spend at least 5 minutes a day for 40 days in prayer using the daily guides authored for you by over 20 ministry leaders in El Dorado and Union County. Each day your prayer guide will include a message from the Bible, and observation and a prayer thought to serve as a focus for your prayer time.
Consider Fasting. A new addition to this year’s initiative: The ministry leaders invite you to join us in committing to a day of fasting on the 1st, 20th, and 40th days of the prayer campaign. That’s:
- Day 1 – Sunday, October 1
- Day 20 – Friday, October 20
- Day 40 – Thursday, November 9
Now… if you’re new to fasting, you’ll want to take a look at this helpful straight-forward advice about the practice of fasting, so you won’t need to apologize later for what you said in “hanger.” 😉
Sharing is Caring. Please help us get the word out there by sharing the daily prayer posts on your Facebook, Twitter or other social media feeds. Wouldn’t it be great if every day there were posts and tweets letting people know about the Church in El Dorado rising up in prayer together?
