“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.” -Colossians. 4:2

Did you know that over 80% of Canadians admit that they pray. I’m quite sure many followers of Jesus pray: at meals, throughout the day and in a church gathering or group.

Our hope is to be very intentional about prayer – to pray in a way prayer that surrenders ourselves and our church to God;  to pray in a way that draws us into a deeper relationship with Him.

Here’s a few ways you can join:

Commit to a daily time in prayer.

  • This can be a combination of personal prayer or slowly reciting the Lord’s Prayer or other biblical prayers (e.g. Col. 1:9-13, Eph. 1:17-23, 3:16-21; John 17) **

  • Commit to at least 5-10 min. daily

Consider Fasting 1-2 meals or 1 whole day

  • We suggest dinner on Wednesday and Friday OR all day Wednesday with the Westside community.

  • Fasting is a spiritual discipline that couples our physical hunger with the desire to grow our spiritual hunger as well our desire for God to be at work in our lives or a specific situation.
