Prayer & Fasting

Our week of prayer and fasting begins on Monday 11th September through to Friday 15th September.

These disciplines have been a foundational and integral part in the life of the global and historic church and at CFC they are a key part of our rhythm as we follow Jesus.

Jesus says ‘when you pray… when your fast’, there is a command here, an expectation, an invitation from Jesus into his ways and being.

Our focus for this week is the idea of being consecrated, setting ourselves aside for God, for his purpose and will to be made manifest in us. There is a devotion required to follow Jesus along with a beautiful reciprocal devotion from Jesus to us and our being made holy. This week allows us to be intentional, reorientate our lives around Jesus again as we once more say yes to following him.

The words of this old hymn sum up our anthem for the week so well:

1 Take our lives and let them be
consecrated, Lord, to thee.
Take our moments and our days;
let them flow in endless praise,
let them flow in endless praise.

2 Take our hands and let them move
at the impulse of thy love.
Take our feet and let them be
swift and beautiful for thee,
swift and beautiful for thee.

3 Take our voices, let them sing
always, only, for our King.
Take our lips and let them be
filled with messages from thee,
filled with messages from thee.

4 Take our silver and our gold;
not a mite would we withhold.
Take our intellect and use
every power as thou shalt choose,
every power as thou shalt choose.

5 Take our will and make it thine;
it shall be no longer mine.
Take our hearts they are thine own;
They shall be thy royal throne,
They shall be thy royal throne.

6 Take our love; our Lord, we pour
at thy feet its treasure store.
Take ourselves, and we will be
ever, only, all for thee,
ever, only, all for thee. 

Frances Havergal 1874 (adapted to plural)

I am excited to see what God has for us and what His Spirit is saying to His church.

Share what God has been saying to you

We believe that God speaks to us in a variety of ways. Whether it's a passage of scripture, a prophetic word, a word of encouragement, a vision or a dream, we believe it's important to share it.

If the Lord has shared something for you personally, for your site, for us as a wider church family or for our nation, we would love to hear about it. Click here to send it!
