Please humbly and boldly ask God to reveal his vision for Redeemer and its ministries, to give us wisdom and creativity to develop a culture of prayer at Redeemer so that prayer is woven into every part of every ministry, and to give every congregant a gospel-centered, prayerful heart.

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” – Matthew 4:4
Fasting is a beautiful and essential spiritual discipline that draws us closer in intimacy with God.
On the day of each Monthly Prayer & Praise Evening, we invite you to fast prior to the event by abstaining* from both breakfast and lunch (or just lunch), and break fast afterwards. Consider fasting and breaking fast together with your community group, friends, and family! More info on fasting here.
*If you can't or shouldn't abstain from food (e.g. medical restrictions, eating disorders), know that the Lord knows and the Lord sees. He understands and is with you in your struggles, and so the challenge for you might be to fast from something else besides food, or to be courageous and eat.
