21 Days of Prayer and Fasting (Inside Banner)
Congratulations on completing the first day of the fast. Today we’re going to talk about putting God First in our lives.

Fasting in January is much like praying in the morning to establish the will of God for the entire day. When we put God first in our lives, in our families, in our finances – in everything – I believe that He will bless and multiply those areas. If we will pray and seek God and give Him our first and best at the beginning of the year, He will honor that sacrifice and bless our ENTIRE year!

If you are one of those people who sense that God has more for your life, take the first step and believe for more of Him.

Start the year off right and discover the rewards of putting God first! I look forward to hearing about what God will do in our lives and in community as we seek Him together.

There is Life … and there is living … are you ready to start really living out God’s plan for your life?

There’s more to life…more to faith…more to you! God gives you the formula for success which boils down to two words: God first! That’s where God began. Look at your Bible. What are the very first words written?

“In the beginning…” Genesis 1:13.

“God first” is His priority that should rule every decision of our lives. In Matthew 6:33, Jesus tells us to hear His plan, receive His direction and His blessings. If you want success in your life, in your marriage, in your work, in your witness—putting God first is key.

God hears the cry of the oppressed and the unsaved. When God is our first priority, He can use us to help others. The words of Isaiah 58:6-14 give us insight into how significantly God views the power of fasting in fulfilling His kingdom purpose.

Happy Fasting!

    Love this! “In the beginning God…”
    God is First!

    I want to GIVE the 1st of everything to my awesome God… (Matt 6:33, 7:7-8)
    …the first of my day – “Pray First”
    …the first of my year – “21 Day Fast”
    …the first of my week – “Church”
    …the first of my month – “Refresh & Refocus”
    …the first of my income – “Tithe & Offering” Malachi 3:10

    I not only want to give good things to my heavenly Father… I also want to GO to Him first, and confide in Him, in all things. He is My Shepherd and will always guide me in the right direction and never let me down!

    Our Prayer Guide has helped me tremendously in this!!! I love, love, love our Prayer Guide! It has changed my prayer life! I encourage you all to use the Prayer Guide &, as a companion to the guide, join our pastors in these daily devotions. They are life changing!

    As our prayer guide says (pg 2) …
    Once you learn how to pray, prayer can become a part of everyday life. And then…
    Before the day begins…
    Before you go to bed…
    Before you go to work or school…
    Before you send that text…
    Before you eat, drive, or travel…
    When bad things happen…
    Before bad things happen…
    In EVERY situation – PRAY FIRST!

    Prayer changes everything!!!

    Amen to that!!!!!
