Dear Friend,

Back in my school days, during the lean times on campus, we would buy food at the local cafeteria and ask to be served ‘without’. This was code for ‘no meat’. With our meagre resources, there were times we just couldn’t afford the luxury of meat – it wasn’t essential for survival. And survive, we did! As I grew in years and in the Lord, I also came to learn the value of ‘going without’ all together. You see, real survival is more than just stretching your money but about being able to stretch inner capacity to overcome life’s more critical challenges. I know putting food on the table is a basic for all of us but if you have ever been sick (as I have before) or if you have had a need that money could not solve, you’ll know what I mean. It is in this space that surviving takes a different meaning.

And that’s why we fast at these early stages in a new year – not because it’s an exercise to mark on the calendar but because we desperately need to build up the power to stretch beyond the things we can ordinarily take care of by ourselves. Now, I go ‘without’ by choice, and not just to survive but to break the limits of my human frailty. And guess what? Every year when we abstain from food during these 21 days of fasting, we see proof of higher capacity and testimonies of inner strength to overcome life’s greatest challenges.

I’m inviting you to join us this year, as we go ‘without’ again, because I want to share this amazing access with you to get higher help for your health, family, finances and the things you can’t do in your own power this year. As we pray and trust God for a breaking forth in 2024, I take confidence that God is faithful to hear us in the fast that He has commanded.

So, will you join us? See the flier attached for prayer points for this first week and details of our prayer times online and onsite.

Much love,

GoodHeart Ekwueme

Isaiah 58:6

“Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, To undo the heavy burdens, To let the oppressed go free, And that you break every yoke?
