Prayer Ministry

Prayer is a vital part of our spiritual walk with God, it is how we reach out to Him in times of trouble and times of thanksgiving.

ECC has a vision to pray for a powerful move of God, which impacts our communities and transforms our nation. We want to see people live in freedom and have a full life walking in their destiny. We believe this is so important hence in 2002 our Prayer Centre was setup. Since that time this has ensured that we are live 24hours a day, giving continuous prayer and having unbroken contact with God.  Now in 2022 we are transitioning into a House of Prayer, with a rhythm of night and day live intercession including our daily prayer meetings.

Prayer Meetings

Every member of our congregation and Christians from other churches are welcome and encouraged to join our meetings. These are also open to the general public, feel free to come and pray.

Our Prayer Meetings are a place where we intercede for our nation, revival and various needs of others.

Weekdays 10.30am – 12.30pm

Tuesdays 7.30pm – 8.30pm

All Night Prayer – Last Friday of the Month

Prayer Diary April 2024

THEME: THE POWER OF A CORPORATE PRAYING CHURCH

Leviticus 26:8; 1 Timothy 2:18; Acts 2:42; Acts 12:6-12

In Matthew 18:20, Jesus assures us that His presence will be with us each time we congregate to fellowship and pray. As a people of God therefore, it is important for us to realise that we invite and access the power of God when we gather together to pray.

Indeed, Leviticus 26:8 reminds us of the synergy derivable from such gathering: “Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand…”

There are numerous scriptural accounts where the corporate prayer of God’s people led to great miracles and great breakthroughs. (Esther, Jehoshaphat, Nehemiah are examples of these instances.)

In modern UK Church history, many recorded revivals started with believers joining together to pray the move of God’s Holy Spirit into fruition. (The Welsh revivals of 1859 and 1904, the Hebrides revival of 1949.)

This month, as we press into God’s presence in prayer, let us be intentional in our unity and conviction that regular corporate gatherings of God’s people in worship and prayer as depicted in the Book of Acts is a foundational value of our faith which results into God’s visitation and into many miracles.

  3. You have called us into intimacy with yourself, help us also to know that we are called into a life of fellowship with other believers and so to strive constantly to follow the example of the early Church in gathering with other believers to pray. Acts 2:1; Romans 15:6; Acts 4:32

  4. Help us to be a people joining other believers in corporate prayer, knowing that our coming together in prayer achieves so much more than our individual efforts. Leviticus 26:8

  1.

We silence every contrary power; we bind you and destroy your influence.

  5. For those that may be participating in such gatherings through ignorance, Lord, we pray that you will open their eyes so they can see the deception of the enemy. Open their ears to hear your voice. Convict their hearts unto repentance. Break the yokes of oppression in their lives and give them liberty in you through salvation.

How to Fast 247 prayer

Spiritual Warfare

Prayer Tool:

How to Fast 

 What? 

Fasting is the practice of giving up something we normally consume to focus on God. This prayer tool will show its significance in spiritual warfare.

Why? 

“Fasting is universal temperance, prayer is universal communication with God; the former defends from the outside, whereas the latter from within directs a fiery weapon against the enemies. The demons can sense a faster and man of prayer from a distance, and they run far away from him so as avoid a painful blow.” St Theophan the Recluse

Bible reference:

“But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face,  so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:17-18

A quick introduction to Fasting

The Biblical principle of fasting is a process of forgoing something (primarily food) in order that we might to turn our gaze on to God in a more intense and focused way.

Fasting is referred to numerous times in both the Old and New Testament as a practice of God’s people. Jesus talks about it in the Sermon on the Mount alongside prayer and giving, and in doing so we could argue He endorses it as a prerequisite for the disciple: “When you fast…” (Matthew 6:16) presumes fasting will be a familiar practice in the life of the Jesus-follower, just as prayer and giving is.

While fasting implies abstaining from food, it more importantly means a feasting on God – an utter dependence upon the presence of God beyond the sustenance of food. In doing so we prove the words Jesus quoted during His own fast: “…man does not live by bread alone but by every word that precedes from the mouth of God…” Prayer and fasting is the weapon we must pick up if we are to overcome the assignments of the enemy against our lives and be free to progress into deeper realms of the Spirit.

Corporate fasting

While fasting is often a private matter between an individual and God, the Bible also refers to a number of corporate fasts.

These corporate fasts were often in times when the children of Israel were in a desperate situation. Realising their need to repent of sins on behalf of the nation[1], they cried out to God in fasting and prayer for a breakthrough.

We also see this practice at certain key ‘breakthrough moments’ in the New Testament. Jesus told the disciples when confronting certain demonic activity that, ‘this sort only comes out through prayer and fasting’.

In Acts 13, at a critical juncture in the life of the church regarding its launch into Gentile territory, we read of the apostles and prophets fasting and praying to God, seeking wisdom for what would become the explosion of the gospel breaking through the missional frontier.

There is a dimension to fasting which draws us into the spiritual realm and the front-edge of spiritual warfare. Significant shifts and major breakthroughs can come as a result of fasting and prayer and it has proven to be a primary tool, for thousands of years, in the advancement of the Kingdom.

Ironically, when we are weak in body, we are sometimes strongest in spirit, spiritually heightened and alert, and therefore primed for a breakthrough. Jesus Himself seems to have endured most of the satanic attacks against His life during

His forty days of fasting in the wilderness. This should inspire and educate us in our Christian journey and maturing process – the Son of God, knowing He was about to face the temptations and torments of the enemy, utilised the weapon of fasting, and in so doing overcame the devil and his angels.

Only after this did Jesus’ ministry fully begin. Maybe some of the breakthroughs we want to see in our own lives or the lives of our families, churches and cities will only come after a season of fasting and prayer.

Do it: How to Fast [2]

The tips below are for a fast of food, but ask the Holy Spirit to show you what you could fast. You might want to try the following instead:

  • Social media
  • Alcohol
  • Talking
  • Entertainment or sport
  • Screens and devices

‘Walk before you can run: ’ a ‘slow and steady’ approach to progression in this discipline is particularly important. It might be an idea to start with a partial fast, like missing one meal a day for a week, or trying a ‘Daniel fast’ which involves giving up all delicacies and concentrating on vegetables.

Build it up gradually: move on in your fasting, trying one 24 hour period once a week for a few weeks. After success in this fasting, move onto a longer fast – try 3 days, or build a more consistent rhythm of the first 2 days of every month. It may be good to tie in with the church’s calendar at Lent and aim for a longer, more intentional fast.

Plan: as you prepare to fast, try and plan your diary intentionally. It is good to try and not get too busy when you are fasting so that you can give some set time to prayer. Try not to fill up the time you would have been fasting with work and meetings, rather keep it free to intentionally seek God.  You may also want to check that your medical conditions comply with you fasting.  If you need to, check it out with your GP.

Monitor: try to pay attention to the attitude of your heart.  What is God revealing?  What needs to change?

Keep going: when you start, you will begin to feel hunger pangs or discomfort: it’s not real hunger – try to resist and allow the pains to trigger you instead to offer up prayers to God.

Soon the pangs will pass. Initially the body might suffer discomfort – this is due to the body ridding itself from toxins that have built up over the years because of bad eating habits. Don’t be disturbed, rather thank God for the increased health and wellbeing as a result.

Keep worshipping: while outwardly you may be getting on with what you have to do, inwardly be in singing and adoration in your heart to the Lord.

Wisdom: be aware of the weakness in your body and try not to do anything too strenuous that would put you and/or others at risk. Break your fast with a light meal, rather than heavily overeating.
