Thirty Days of Prayer
Join us for 30 days of prayer for God’s appointment for the Lead Pastor position at East Lake. Never underestimate the power of prayer! The Apostle James assures us that, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” James 5:16. It is the privilege of every believer to be able to approach the throne of God freely and without fear. We want to encourage you to use that freedom during the next 30 days to lift up our church during your daily prayers in four specific areas: the Oversight Team, our next Lead Pastor, our current staff and leadership, and our church as a whole. Download a guide developed by the Oversight Team to assist you in your prayer journey. The guide includes a prayer focus and scripture for each day of your dedicated prayer time. You will notice that there is an optional day of fasting each week. The purpose of fasting is to give up a specific activity and then devote the time to prayer. In this sense, fasting might mean skipping a meal, giving up snacks between meals, or even skipping one of your favorite programs and spending the time in prayer instead. The point is to intentionally dedicate some “extra” time to prayer for a specific purpose.
