IF MY PEOPLE…will humble themselves and pray
As a faith community, one of the best things we can do in times of trouble is pray. We have an opportunity to do that every Wednesday by uniting in prayer and fasting with many other churches in the Bay Area. Will you join this movement by fasting — pressing pause — from the media stream of information and your social media feeds, and by fasting from food until dinner? Will you join us as we focus throughout the day on praying for God’s life-changing work in our cities, state, country, and world?
IF MY PEOPLE is a movement of churches in the Bay Area uniting together to pray and fast every Wednesday during this global crisis. Why include fasting? Because fasting is “a physical exclamation point, declaring our desperation & dependence on God. It declares our need for Him is greater than our need for food, water, TV or even other relationships. We set aside something [food, drink, media] to focus intensely on God.” (Ryan Ingram)
Join the BCC family for prayer on Zoom every Wednesday at noon, led by one of our BCC pastors, even if you can only get away from other things for five minutes. When we come before God’s throne of grace to find mercy and help in our time of need, God hears our prayers and always answers. And we have many things to pray about right now, including our Lead Pastor transition and confirmation process. We invite you to join our prayer time HERE on Zoom every Wednesday at noon. The passcode is: Prayer.
