An Introduction to Mosaic's Break the Soil Prayer Event
“Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.” -Hosea 10:12
As the Mosaic Church family, we want to strive to be a people of sustained and fervent prayer. To that end, we believe there is a unique opportunity this April to call the church to regular prayer and fasting so that we may see God “break the soil” in our homes, our church and Richardson. Fasting is another discipline that brings breakthrough, and we’ve been wondering, “what is God waiting to pour out on our church, or our city or our lives if we would just seek him through prayer and fasting?”
We’ve seen instances in the Bible when a community of people fast together, asking for the Lord’s direction (Lev. 23:27). This season of fasting together as a church will unify us as we collectively assume a posture of receiving from God by turning over our plates. As C. H. Spurgeon once reflected about a time of fasting in community with his congregation; “never has heaven’s gate stood wider; never have our hearts been nearer the central glory.”
Some of the most encouraging words that we can read as we prepare to enter into this season are found in Acts 13:2, which says, “While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said…”
We are encouraged and invigorated to know that our time of dedicating ourselves to the Lord in this way will result in us actually hearing from Him in His word by the power of His Spirit!
So we embark on 21 days of prayer in April. We will begin on Wednesday, April 3 and conclude on Wednesday, April 24. Each day we will have a short post on the Mosaic blog with the topic of prayer for that day, a short reflection from scripture, and a few prayer points. Each Wednesday in April (April 3, 10, 17 and 24) we invite you to join us as we fast and gather for prayer at three different times and locations:
6:30-7:30 a.m. || Communion Coworking Space
10-11 a.m. || Loft City Church
8-9 p.m. || Zoom Video Conference (can participate from home)
These times are open to anyone who may want to come: men, women, families, people involved at Mosaic, people not involved at Mosaic. All are welcome as we gather to pray.
I hope you will join us. What might God do in our lives and in the lives of our neighbors, family, co-workers, and friends through this work?
I can’t wait to see.
