JLAL Annual 21 Day Fasting & Prayer Starts 1-4-21 – Get ready for increase throughout our 21 days of Fasting & Prayer which starts on Mon., Jan 4th and ends Sun., Jan 24th at 6pm.  Fasting is to abstain from and prayer is communication with God. Our typical fast is to abstain from meats, sweets and white breads. Seek the Lord for exactly what you should do especially if under doctors orders. Connect with Bishop Steve or Elder LaVerne for further instruction if needed. As we abstain from food and other things that our flesh enjoys, it’s our time to feast on God and enjoy what He leads us to. Thank you for participating, notate your victories along the way, and give God the glory. There may be times for you to share your testimonies.
