A Call For Fasting And Prayer

Ash Wednesday begins the forty day season leading up to Easter and is traditionally a time of going before God in prayer and asking him to show us the sin that we need to repent of -- both the sin we are aware of and those we are blind to.

It is also a time to consider fasting as we pray.  Fasting is up to the individual to do as little as a meal or as much as a day--it is your choice. Some of the things we encourage you to fast and pray for are:

·            The leadership of our nation

·            The leadership of our city of Chattanooga

·            The families and youth living in our community of East Lake

·            The fellowship of our church at East Lake growing in the love of Christ and his vision                     for making disciples of all nations.

·            The ministry of our church in East Lake to the community -- and that we can see more                   of the community coming into our church.
