Prayer Ministry

For several years, an army of intercessors has prayed for the needs of people in our church, community and country as well as around the world. Week after week many have chosen to commit time in seeking the Lord through the ministry of prayer.  We want the First Church of God in Vincennes to be a “house of prayer.” If you have not yet joined our team of prayer warriors, why not make this the day you join us?

All Church Prayer Meeting

Come join us! Sunday evenings, 5:00-6:00 p.m. in Room 3 at First Church of God. Praying for healing, salvation, burdens, sharing testimonies and answers to prayer. Child care available.

Prayer & Fasting

What is Prayer?

Prayer is how we make our praises and request known to God.

As the is scripture

Luke 18:1-14

Matthew 6:1-18

James 5:13-24

Prayer & Fasting

Fasting is a spiritual discipline that is taught in the Bible. Jesus expected His followers to fast, and He said that God rewards fasting. Fasting, according to the Bible, means to voluntarily reduce or eliminate your intake of food for a specific time and purpose.

"When you give up eating, don't put on a sad face like the hypocrites. They make their faces look sad to show people they are giving up eating. I tell you the truth, those hypocrites already have their full reward. So when you give up eating, comb your hair and wash your face. Then people will not know that you are giving up eating, but your Father, whom you cannot see, will see you. Your Father sees what is done in secret, and he will reward you." Matthew 6:16-18 (NCV)

  Fasting gives you more time for prayer. You can use the time you'd normally spend eating as time in prayer for what God wants to do among us during this Campaign. In the Bible, fasting is always connected with prayer. 

"While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, 'Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.' So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off." Acts 13:2-3 (NIV)
