One of our main visions centres around the 'Prayer Ministry'. Jesus said, "My Fathers House will be called a House of prayer for all nations." As a ministry we help ignite the Body of Christ in intense and directed intercession, encouraging people to partner with us in developing a passionate lifestyle of prayer through prayer schools and city wide prayer but also through our Praying Friends and Prayer and Fasting days.
Our Praying Friends have a two-fold vision
- It is to partnership with you to stand in the gap for Voice in the City for the express purpose of seeing His Kingdom extended. It is about seeking God - to push open doors for the bold proclamation of the Gospel, to see the lost saved, to release the oppressed and to heal the multitudes.
- It is also about joining hands with you and praying and interceding for you and your needs. Why? As Ephesians says, "So the body of Christ may be built up, until we all reach the unity in the faith and become mature."
If the Holy Spirit is calling you to stand with us regularly by praying once a week or more then please join the Praying Friends beside where we will regularly email you with praise reports, prayer requests, healings and miracles.
Prayer and Fasting Days
Men and women throughout the centuries have experienced the impact and power of fasting and prayer! Moses saved a nation from destruction through fasting and prayer. Esther, the young orphan girl saved God's people and brought revival to an ungodly nation through fasting and prayer. Paul had the unsaved to fast and 276 souls were saved from the shipwreck (Acts 27). Jesus Himself gave a teaching on fasting in Matthew 6 - "Moreover, when you fast ...," He said; not if you fast; but when you fast. Through the ages many men have learned this secret!
The invitation from God remains:
"Even now, declares the Lord, return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping"
- Joel 2:12-14
If you had had three years to change the world, would you take time out and set aside time to fast? Would you take the time to humble yourself before God and cry out to Him? The moment Jesus was called into ministry He was led by the Holy Spirit to set aside time to pray and fast! Could it be that this call is also coming to you right now? Maybe for the nation, your church or for your own life or even Voice in the City!
Throughout the year we usually set aside the second Tuesday of every month to fast and pray for nations and events that Voice in the City is involved in. If you are a part of our Praying Friends then you will be informed about and invited to our Prayer and Fasting Days.
