today is pray for AK

Hello Church  “Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.” Psalms 5:3 NLT Today we pray for Alaska. We are called “the land of the midnight sun” but our state is shrouded in spiritual darkness. Our enemy desires our destruction and at least our being crippled so we are ineffective and impotent. May God begin a fresh move of the Spirit so people find Christ and learn his blessings for…

Day 3 of prayer and fasting

Hello CCA, It has been good to communicate with God together over specific things to ask him to do. We have also learned more about the heart of God through this time. This is day 3 and we are praying for our city: Tuesday, September 3. This is the day to pray for workplace, your neighborhood. Your city, Anchorage. Listen to the people around you as they talk about their lives. Ask God to show you how to bring the…

Day 6 of Prayer and Fasting

Day 6. Prayer and Fasting. Pick the meals and days you will fast. Use that time to pray. When something or someone comes to your mind, speak a word or two to The Lord right then! Learn to have an immediate contact with God. Maybe think of it as ‘texting’. A short note of what you want to convey. God loves our thoughts during the day. He is always ready to dispense his justice and attention to our requests. Pray…

day 5 prayer and fasting

Hello Church, This is day 5 of our first week to fast and pray as the season of the school year begins. The school year is the time to “train yourself for Godliness” as well. 1 Timothy 4.7. Godliness brings us God’s blessings and increases our world impact. Maybe you think you placed yourself in the position you are in right now. Maybe you alone did that. But likely, God’s hand was also in it. For sure, God’s plan is…

day 3 of prayer and fasting

Hello Church, This is day 3 of Prayer and Fasting. “Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.” Colossians 4:2 NLT Sunday, August 25th through September 8th.   Pick the meals and days you will fast. Use that time to pray. Pray in circles. Concentric circles. Expanding circles like ripples in a pond. Pick up a ‘Prayer and Fasting’ brochure on the Back Table. You will have a specific prayer guide for each day. List what you…

Unshakable Hope! Session 11.

Hello Church. Unshakable Hope! This Sunday is Session 11. There is no condemnation in Christ. I can’t wait to explore the truth of this promise with you Sunday. This is the story that you and I could never have written and never have imagined. This promise is one that only God could’ve come up with. Man has demonstrated how he would figure out the balance sheets of heaven and God’s way is far superior and unique. No person thought this up.…

Pray for our new Associate Minister

Please join us in praying for who the Lord will bring as our new Associate Minister. There are some specific qualities we want you to be praying for over the next couple weeks/months as we search for a new Associate Minister. The third quality; For him to be A Loving Minister: It can be very easy to “do ministry” without loving people. It is easy to see people as projects that you want to fix rather than children you deeply…

Promise #10

Hello CCA “You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you… and you will be my witnesses to the remotest parts of the earth.” Read Acts 1.1-8.

Here is something about the Holy Spirit abiding and working in us: PUSH – Power, Unity, Supervision, Holiness. These scriptures will augment your research and readiness to hear on…
