We were created to know and enjoy God, and to depend on Him for our every need. Sadly, though, we often look to the things of this world to satisfy us, and we are constantly tempted to rely on ourselves rather than on God's wisdom and power.
In Secret Church 19, we'll see that all of Scripture invites us to pursue God, and we'll see how crucial the role of prayer and fasting is in this pursuit. Beginning in Genesis and moving all the way through Revelation, David Platt shows us that God has designed prayer and fasting not only to meet our daily needs but more importantly so that we might find greater intimacy and satisfaction in Him. We'll also see the critical role of prayer and fasting in carrying out the mission Christ gave to His church—to make disciples of all nations.
Other questions covered in this study include . . .
How does prayer work?
What does biblical fasting look like?
Why pray if God knows what I need and what will happen in the future?
What do I do when it feels like I'm praying into thin air?
How do I know what God is leading me to do with my life?
God has designed prayer and fasting for His glory and for our good. So let your life be an all-consuming quest to know, enjoy, worship, and love Him.
WHY WE GATHER
Secret Church is a unique, one-night event. Encouraged by our persecuted brothers and sisters’ example, we meet for over 6 hours for intense study of God's Word passionate prayer for the persecuted.
We spend time diving deep into the Word of God to hear what He is speaking to us and to grow our dependence and hunger for Scripture.
We devote time in prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who still have not heard the gospel.
We respond to what we've heard by giving for the sake of the persecuted and the unreached around the world.
