The next Secret Church gathering will be held on Friday, April 26, 2019 and Twickenham will once again be a host site. The simulcast will start at 6:00 pm and conclude around midnight. Teacher and author David Platt will lead us in 6+ hours of prayer and Bible study around the topic PRAYER, FASTING AND THE PURSUIT OF GOD.
This Year's Topic
Our culture is constantly telling us that we can achieve anything we set our mind to. Sadly, many followers of Christ and many churches have adopted this self-sufficient mindset, relying on their own wisdom and abilities instead of relying on God. But what if we were never intended to be self-sufficient? And what if God has designed us so that our greatest satisfaction is found as we depend on Him fully for everything we need?
In Secret Church 19 we’ll take an in-depth look at the Bible’s teaching on prayer and fasting. We’ll see that our inabilities and weaknesses are the very place where God meets us with His strength and sufficiency. We’ll also see that faithfulness to the mission of Christ requires depending on the Spirit of Christ. Through prayer and fasting, we demonstrate our need for God’s power and our desire for His glory.
Questions covered in this study include:
- How does prayer work?
- What does biblical fasting look like?
- Why pray if God knows what I need and what will happen in the future?
- What do I do when I feel like I’m praying into thin air?
- How do I know what God is leading me to do with my life?
