Join the 2019 Breakthrough Fast: "lord, teach us to pray!"
We want to invite you to join with thousands of people around the world for the annual College of Prayer International Breakthrough Fast, January 6-26, 2019! This year our theme will be "Lord, teach us to pray!"
In Luke 11 we have this incredible moment where the disciples are with Jesus while He is praying and one of them asks Jesus, "Lord, teach us to pray..." In fact, it's the only area of spiritual formation that we have recorded where the disciples actually ask to be taught. They knew if they were going to do anything on earth the way Jesus did it, they better learn to pray the way Jesus prayed. Jesus was happy to respond with a pattern we now call the "Lord's prayer pattern."
Over the 21 day fast we'll be praying the 7 parts of the Lord's prayer pattern found in Matthew 6:
Relationship - "Our Father in heaven,"
Worship - "hallowed be your name."
Lordship - "Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
Sonship - "Give us today this daily bread,"
Fellowship - "and forgive us debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors."
Leadership - "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil."
Ownership - "For yours is the kingdom, the glory and the power forever. Amen."
Sign up today to join the fast and between January 6-26 you will receive daily devotional emails from our International Leadership Team. These emails will be brief, focused, and life-giving, setting you in the right direction during the fast.
“Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, 'Lord, teach us to pray...'" Luke 11:1
