We are now on our 2nd day for our Prayer and Fasting together with our fellow church members. We started yesterday morning where we abstain from eating food. Only water, juice or coffee. Some of our church members specially the young people are new on these so we allowed them to take a partial fasting where they can only eat once a day. But for us who are leaders in the ministry, we will do the 3 day fast since we do have an earnest prayer that we want to fulfill by God’s grace.We want to focus on prayer and fellowship with God by spending more time with Him as we rely on God’s strength, provision and wisdom.
For those of you who wants to know what prayer and fasting is, the purpose of Christian fasting is actually taking our eyes off the things of this world and focus our thoughts on God. We are not to spend time in prayer and fasting in order to lose weight, but we want to gain a deeper fellowship with God. It is through prayer and biblical fasting that we can focus better on Christ. In the book of Matthew 6:16-18 says that “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it will not be obvious to men that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
If we are asking for something that is not honoring to God or not God’s will for our lives, God will not give what we ask for, whether we fast or not. How can we know God’s will? God promises to give us wisdom when we ask. James 1:5 tells us, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”
No I’m not talking to the popular story of an extraordinary girl and four gorgeous and influential guys of F4 in a Korean version, Boys Over Flowers but I am talking literally of our photos below where me and my sister in law are the only flowers among the boys. ^_^
This photo was taken when we had a night of Jam for Jesus and Film Showing event which was held at our church.
We all had fun together with these young people who are on fire for God and all are happy in serving the Lord.
I am linking this entry for Wordless Wednesday
I actually donated my old laptop for our church a few months ago but since its quite an old model and it already has several flaws and defects, hubby and I are trying our best to save money so we can buy a new one. Our church really needs a laptop because it is very much needed for the LCD projector so we could use it for our praise and worship service.
Our church Pastor also needs a laptop for his preaching using images, digital video and other forms of media in worship including sermon software and presentation. Right now Ive been searching for a dependable and cheap laptops available online. I hope I could find the perfect one which is suited for our church needs soon.
