A Day To Fast And Pray - Saturday, April 4

In light of what is happening because of COVID-19, we want to invite you to join in an event put on by The Gospel Coalition (TGC) this Saturday, April 4.

There will be three primary prayer times, with guided prayers for each segment. The team at TGC created a prayer companion booklet (view online or download PDF) to help guide you through the day.

We want to pray to the Lord in faith, trusting in the words of Psalm 10:17: “O LORD, you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear.”

Morning Prayer: Personal Prayer

We encourage you to spend Saturday morning in personal prayer, focused around Psalm 27

Midday Prayer: Community Prayer

We hope you will spend this time praying with others in your community—perhaps your family around the kitchen table, or maybe your church small group or friends on a video call.

Evening Prayer: Online Prayer and Worship

During this one-hour prayer time on Facebook and YouTube, various brothers and sisters, pastors and ministry leaders, as well as special musicians, will help guide us through a unifying moment of corporate prayer and worship. You can pray with us, share your own prayer requests, and pray for others’ requests in the comments section.

The details of the fast are up to you. Perhaps you choose to go without one or two meals on Saturday, breaking the fast at dinner. Maybe you fast from something other than food. Choose something that works for you and your family. If you’re new to fasting, this resource can help you begin.

When Will It Take Place?

This Saturday, April 4. The evening prayer time will be broadcast on TGC’s Facebook page and YouTube page from 7 to 8 p.m.
