21 Days of Devotion and Prayer
Our fast is 24hrs a day from January 2nd to January 22nd, 2017.
Our church is beginning a journey and we are asking for every family to go on this journey with us. It’s a journey of faith and our destination is total dependence on God in every area of our lives. We have made this our goal because we want God to be glorified in all that we do. We want the world to see in us an accurate reflection of who God is. As Jesus is, so are we, in this world (1 John 4:17).
This Journey will provide an opportunity for your family to learn more of what it means to live by faith and to depend on God for everything in life. CLICK HERE to access the Devotional Guide. These devotionals are designed to help us focus on three things in which we must be actively involved if we are going to reach our destination together: God Is Our Source, It Is God’s Will That We Prosper, and We Are Blessed To Be A Blessing
Each of the 21 daily devotionals are divided into 5 parts:
If you have children in your home, it is a good idea to let them take turns reading the verse or verses for the day. It is important that children be participants and not just spectators in the things of the Lord.
This section provides a brief background of the text. The goal here is to discuss the text, in context, with your family.
The Application Each devotional will provide several application points. As you read each, ask your family how they think this truth can be applied to their lives.
The Declaration of Faith
We believe God has placed the power of death and life in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). So each devotional contains a declaration of faith designed to go along with the lesson. Declare the words either with your family (in unison), or have them repeat after you. As you speak the words of faith, do so from a believing heart, thereby activating your faith in what you just studied.
The Closing Prayer
End each session with a simple prayer, asking God to help each family member receive and apply the truth they have learned that day. Use this time for prayer requests and include prayer for our Apostles and the Pastors of our VCMI locations.
Choose a time of day when your whole family can gather together with the least number of distractions and interruptions. Make this an interesting and fun time for your family. If possible, invite your neighbors or other families from VCMI. This is a time of fasting, prayer and consecration for us. In order to Build a Better Community we must build our families first.
