Calling all Young Adults to Fast

Dear Young Adults,

I sense a lot of you are hungry for more of God, for the reality of God's presence in your lives and I am urging all of you to seriously consider fasting for the coming 40 Days of Prayer, starting 1 July 2010 till National Day.

If you recalled what I shared on Sunday, Fasting in essence is restraining some of our natural pleasure, as well as our natural strength. When we fast food, it’s not so much about hunger. It’s really about functioning without being a hundred percent mentally or physically. It's really an opportunity to trust the Lord, because He is going to make the difference up when you can't function like normal when you fast.

Some of you may be saying, I have failed many times to fast in the past. Remember, there is a grace for fasting. And if you actually ask the Lord, he will help you fast by providing the grace to strengthen your resolve and your determination. At the end of the day, you look back and you finished the day with your fast and you will realise that you got there by the grace that God gave you.

What are you fasting for? I sense that some of you are looking for direction now. Some want to have more power of God in your personal ministry. Some want to know the will of God for your lives.

But I encourage you to press in through fasting to grow in intimacy with Jesus. God really has desire to change our hearts and make us realise how amazing we are in His eyes. And we want to know that desire because it changes us when we feel the weight of it. That’s what we want, isn’t it? We want to have a greater ability and capacity to feel the presence of God, to feel his desire for us and to have the desire for him by the power of the Holy Spirit.

I have a Vision of seeing the young people in Covenant rising to a lifestyle of radical prayer, fasting, and holiness.

Do let me, or Auntie Carol or Shaun know if we are taking up this challenge. Drop us an email, or sms or even thru the facebook msg.
