Prayer & Fasting Community
It was in 2009 that we lit the fire of our Prayer and Fasting Community (PFC), and by God’s grace, the fire has continued to burn ever since! Join the Harp & Bowl ministry!
“The four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people.” – Revelation 5:8
Every believer’s life should be filled with various kinds of prayers. We continually speak and listen intently to our Father God and Lord Jesus Christ as they guide us. Additionally, there are times of focused prayer—often referred to as corporate prayer—when believers come together to pray and fast for an extended period. PFC is the place where this spiritual community gathers.
Our Father God has appointed Jesus as the head of the Church, the firstborn among us, and the One who leads us. PFC serves as a time set aside in our virtual prayer room where we, together as a prayer community, seek His will, His direction, His presence, and His glory here on Earth.
If you’re interested in joining PFC, I can’t think of a better aspiration within the Kingdom of God than to become part of this extraordinary prayer community as we humbly seek His face, presence, and guidance for us all.
For those who choose to join PFC, certain commitments are necessary.
These commitments are:
1. Be a minister in a Network of Related Ministers or a member of a Network of Related Churches.
2. Agree to create, maintain, or begin to develop a sacred trust, which is a prayer plan and schedule.
3. Aim to support PFC Forerunners or become a Forerunner yourself.
4. Commit to standing at least one full watch (three hours) a week.
5. Sign up for a month of watches the moment the month’s watches are posted, which will be no later than the last watch of the current month.
6. By signing up, you affirm your understanding that PFC is a community of faithful forerunners dedicated to a lifestyle of prayer and fasting. Each part of the community collaborates closely, and your awareness and adherence to procedures are imperative for maintaining the community.
7. If you cannot fulfill your watch commitment, personally seek and secure a PFC member to stand your watch. Obtain their commitment and then notify the PFC Watch Coordinator.
8. Start and end your watch by logging in and communicating with the PFC member you are relieving. Do not log out or end your watch until you are assured that the relieving PFC member has logged in and/or is present. Understanding “Community” is a focus of PFC, particularly regarding corporate focused prayer.
Life is often consumed with self-seeking, comfort-seeking, and asking, “What’s in it for me and my kingdom?” By joining PFC, you step outside of yourself and into the presence of Father God and our Lord and Bridegroom, Jesus Christ. By serving a three-hour prayer watch, you focus on seeking God’s satisfaction, making His presence more comfortable, and discovering “What’s in it for our Father and His Kingdom.”
