Corporate Fasting and Prayer 12-19 January 2014

The Elders and the prayer ministry want to extend a call to you to join us in a time of corporate fasting and prayer from 12-19 January 2014. We will join the Universal week of prayer in Belgium in this. We will be fasting and praying during this week with many other Christians over the Globe, including people from Belgium, Europe, South Africa and the USA.

As you prepare for this time during this week, you might have some questions on fasting and prayer. You are encouraged to listen to the sermons on this topic at the following links during this week. On Sunday, 12 January 2014, you are invited to a Question and Answer session at IBC-Brussels at 10:00.
