CHAPEL OF VICTORY INT’L CHURCHES

PRAYER GUIDE FOR 14 DAYS PRAYER AND FASTING

Date:8th–21thJANUARY2018
THEME: THE FORMER AND THE LATTER RAIN JOEL 2:23

It’s already an established Ministry custom to begin each year with Prayers and fasting. Fasting in January is much like praying in the morning to establish the will of God for your entire day. It’s our conviction that if we through prayers & fasting look up to God in the beginning of the year, He will honor that sacrifice and bless our ENTIRE year.

Join us as we embark on setting the foundation for the year with 14 days of fasting and prayers. Use this prayer guide and expand it with your own personal prayer points on a daily basis.

Also join us daily in any of our churches for a time of teaching, prayers and ministrations at5.30pm/6.00pmdaily.
