The Lord God has great and amazing plans for His people in the year 2017. One of the ways we prepare our hearts and lives to experience the fullness of the Plans and Power of God in all areas of life is by setting aside time to intentionally seek His face through prayer and fasting. So as leadership of Watoto church, we feel strongly that at the beginning of this year 2017 we should come together for a week and dedicate everything we are going to participate in before Him from 9th-16th January 2017 

Scripture:
1 John 5:14-15 NIV
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” 

2 Chronicles 7:14-16 NIV
“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.”

HOW TO PRAY AND FAST:

 Morning Glory: 6:30am – 7:45am; Lunch Time: 12:30pm - 1:45pm.
