Pentecost Prayer & Fasting
Does God still supernaturally invade people’s lives today? Church history would echo a resounding YES! What will change in your life if you personally have an encounter with the Holy Spirit? If the lives of disciples in the Book of Acts provide any precedent, it will be the encounter with the Holy Spirit that changes EVERYTHING! When the disciples of Jesus encountered the glory of God at Pentecost, they did not just go back to living normal lives.
They emerged from that place as the light in the midst of darkness, and turn the world upside down for Jesus through proclamation of the gospel. The Holy Spirit enabled them to work miracles, signs and wonders, and many believed in Jesus Christ. One encounter with the Holy Spirit can cause you to come alive in the spirit and experience a fresh awakening in an extraordinary way, just like the days of Acts.
Over the next ten (10) days, we invite you to join us on a spiritual journey to Pentecost with prayer and fasting. Each day there is something for us to reflect on life application as we seek to have an “ENCOUNTER WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT”. May the Holy Spirit direct and guide you during this season of prayer and fasting.
