EASTERN STAR CHURCH NEWS
March 8, 2015 - March 15, 2015
REVISED March 6, 2015
Our 40 Day Fast is currently underway and ends on Palm Sunday March 29. We are observing the "Daniel" model (Dan. 1:12 and 10:3), by avoiding meats, breads, dairy, and sweets, and instead eating vegetables, fruits, beans, rice, 100% juices and water only. We are expecting breakthrough in our personal, family, church, city, country, and the world. This is OUR TIME to humble ourselves before the LORD fully expecting to receive great and mighty things! The daily fast scriptures, prayer petitions, and fast menu are available at www.easternstarchurch.org . Let's continue to prepare our hearts and minds for this marvelous time of personal sacrifice, prayer, meditation, and revelation.
Lord, we lift up the spiritual temperature of our church. Revive us! Refine us so that we burn hot for You. Give us singleness of heart and action so that we always fear You and follow Your precepts. Pour out a spirit of Josiah on us so that we turn to You with our heart, soul and strength. Open our minds to understand Your Word so that our hearts burn within us.
And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God's creation. “I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” Read the full scripture (Revelation 3:14-18 ESV)
