Our long, lonely road together
Mutually the Old Testament and New Testament talk about the importance of prayer and fasting, which is abstaining from food or drink in order to center our hearts on prayer in a quest for God’s will. Through numerous illustrations of people in the Bible who fasted, we can recognize that God grants supernatural revelation, wisdom, healing and deliverance through this practice.
Scripture reveals to us that fasting will facilitate a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and will unlock our eyes to what He wants to teach us. When we take time and set aside food or some other comfort, His power becomes preeminent above our own abilities and that makes fasting worth it.
Prayer and fasting
As a church, from Sunday, August 2 through Sunday, August 9, we will set aside food to meet with God in prayer and fasting. In addition, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., we will come together in a webinar setting to pray. On the last day of the fast, Sunday, August 9, we will partake in the Lord’s Supper.
Please collect your communion emblems this Sunday, August 2, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. We will also distribute consecrated olive oil to those who have not yet received any.
Often within a church, volunteers are members who want to use their God-given talents or their background, to aid the church to fulfill its needs with their service and actions. We are calling on all members who are willing and able to volunteer, as we embark on reopening, to sign up.
Volunteer and let us know you would like to help. We will be in touch with you shortly.

Praise Cathedral we have been waiting expectantly and we can say, to God be the glory, we are almost there! We have been down a long, lonely road together. Just a few more Sundays, my brothers and my sisters, and we will be back together, lifting our voices in one according as we give God the honor; not just for protecting us through this pandemic but also because He is God and He is worthy to be praised.
We will be communicating more details about our reopening in the coming weeks.
