Mt. Pleasant will be doing a corporate fast Monday, January 20 through Sunday, January 26. The time of the fast will be from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. This will be an absolute fast (no liquids or foods during the fasting hours). As always, please be sure to fast as you are medically able to safely complete. We are not asking anyone to sacrifice their health or refrain from taking medications during this period.
This is the year that Mt. Pleasant is going to break out. The four areas that we are fasting for guidance and BREAKOUT blessings in 2014 are:
- Church outreach and evangelism
- Salvation and mentoring of new converts
- Youth ministry
- That the Lord will fill and refill with his Holy Spirit and give personal vision
The church will be open at 5 a.m. for an hour of prayer each day of the fast. The prayer line will be open as well. Dial 1-605-475-4800 (there is no cost to you). The access code is 544756. Simply dial the number, wait until prompted for the code, enter it, and you are on the conference.
The Scripture for meditation for the week will be Romans 12:1-2 (NIV):
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
