 To my church family…

  I am asking that we would enter into a period of fasting and praying.  I’m asking each member to join us as we fast and seek the Lord during this period. On February 27, 2022, we will begin our 40 days of fasting and prayer and will conclude April 11, 2022.  Or on March 20, 2022, we will begin our 21 days of fasting and prayer and will conclude April 10, 2022. (There are six Sundays in Lent, and as all Sundays are feast days in honor of the Resurrection, they are taken out.  To make up for these, six days are added to the beginning of the season.)

Through fasting and prayer, the people of God have one of the most powerful disciplines.  The Holy Spirit can transform your life.  If done properly, fasting will prove to be, not only a spiritual blessing, but a physical blessing as well.  Please spend at least 30 minutes in the Word, meditation and prayer each day.  A scripture and prayer log are included.

While each of you may have specific needs, I am asking that our corporate goal for Second Missionary Baptist is our vision focus “The Year of Faithfulness.”  We encourage all members to participate as we pray together as a family at least once a day.

Jesus Christ, our Kurios Christos, said in Matthew 17:21 that certain types of powers only come when we fast and pray.

Keep speaking the truth in love,

Rev. Dr. Larry E. Jones

Pastor/Teacher 

Most Common Biblical Reasons for Fasting

1. To strengthen our ability to turn our attention to the Lord.
Daniel 9:1-3 provides an example of how to engage God through prayer and supplication.

2. When facing a great challenge or obstacle.
Simply stated, when you don’t know what to do, seek God.  (In II Chronicles 20:1-4; and similarly in Ezra 8:21-23.)

3. To be receptive to direction and wisdom from God.
Consider your role in listening for God’s direction.  When you want Him to reveal something in your life - big or small - you must first place yourself in a posture to hear from Him.
