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?

Prayer & Fasting
What is Prayer?
Prayer is how we make our praises and request known to God.
As in scripture
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 for for a specific time and purpose.
"When you give up eating, don't put on a sda 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 you 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 the 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 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
Simply put, a prayer request is a call-to-action for members of your church to pray for a collective cause.
The purpose of prayer requests is to get more people involved in praying. Prayer is more powerful when lots of people are praying for the same things. It's also an excellent way of showing support for other church members. Especially if you're all praying for someone in the church - it makes them feel loved and cared for. As a result, this also builds your community and increases the sense of belonging many people have.
How do you write prayer requests?
Firstly, understand that this doesn't have to be a long thing. There's no need to write paragraph after paragraph - it should get to the point and ask for people's support. Generally, prayer requests should follow this simple structure:
- A catchy opening line
- Detailing the problem/prayer focus
- Thanking people for the help
Already, this should help your prayer request take shape. Still, there are plenty of things to consider, so let's dive deeper into what you should write...
