March 30 – April 2, 2023
The wicked plot against the Jewish people was set in motion. In one day’s time, “all Jews—young and old, including women and children—must be killed, slaughtered, and annihilated…” (Esther 3:13). Mordecai appealed to the young queen Esther, “perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this.” (Esther 4:13). And then came her brave response, “Go and gather together all the Jews of Susa and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will do the same. And then, though it is against the law, I will go in to see the king. If I must die, I must die” (Esther 4:14).
The turnaround happened during those three days of prayer and fasting and favor was granted to Queen Esther and the tables turned on the evil Haman. Jews were spared. God triumphed over the enemies of His people.
We sense there are many threatening forces that attempt to hold back the advancement of God’s kingdom in our families and our community. So we are setting aside 72 hours for BREAKTHROUGH PRAYER beginning at noon on Thurs, Mar 30 and concluding on Sunday, Apr 2 at noon. We’re calling for a fast from social media, entertainment, and unnecessary activity in order to spend the time in fasting and prayer. There will be sign-ups soon for one hour prayer segments and the church will be open for much of the three days. Join us for an amazing experience in “total dependence on God.”
