Join Us in Prayer and Fasting for Children in the 4/14 Window

The Bible says a lot about the power of prayer and fasting. In the book of Joel the Lord calls His people to turn to Him with their entire heart so He can respond with kindness and not harm.
“Now, therefore,” says the LORD,
“Turn to Me with all your heart,
With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”
So rend your heart, and not your garments;
Return to the LORD your God,
For He is gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger, and of great kindness;
And He relents from doing harm. Joel 2:12-13 (NKJV)
God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and the same kindness He wants to extend to His people in the verses above is the same kindness He wants to extend to us today.
The innocence, trust, and impressionability of children in the 4/14 Window  make them open to Christ but also make them extremely vulnerable to the evils in our world that seek to forever ruin their lives and potential.
The 4/14 Window Global Initiative  has called us to fast and pray today to promote the need for children worldwide to have an opportunity to experience the life-transforming hope of Christ.
Will you join us and the other supporters of the 4/14 Window Global Initiative by putting the power of fasting and prayer to work for children in our churches, cities, nations, and world?
Together, we can be a great, unified voice coming before God’s throne, praying for a new generation of Christ-followers who will transform the world.
There are three items we are highlighting about this day of fasting and prayer.
Thank you for participating in this important event. Please come back and let us know how God touches your heart and mind today.
