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.

One should prepare for a fast and know what you want to fast and pray about. You can use the following form to record these items for yourself. “IBC_fast-commitment-form_2014_rev0”
We want to pray for:
Universal week of prayer theme: “Having a different Spirit” – see attachment “Having-a-different-spirit-APW-2014”
Every ministry area at IBC and where they are involved (worldwide).
God’s clear vision and strategies as we prepare for 2014.
Healing and Spiritual growth of people in the congregation.
Our host nation Belgium.
You may add your own needs to the list.
Are you in need of healing or a miracle?
Do you need the tender touch of God in your life?
Is there a dream inside you that only He can make possible?
Are you in need of a fresh encounter with God?
Do you desire a deeper, more intimate and powerful relationship with the Lord?
Are you ready to have heightened sensitivity to the desires of God?
Do you need to break away from bondages that have been holding you hostage?
Is there a friend or loved one that needs Salvation?
Do you desire to know God’s will for your life?
We invite you to fast and pray with us the whole week, but fast at least one day in the week (from dinner to dinner for 24hrs) and then the Saturday, January, 18th and break your fast with us on the 19th at the worship service (Friday evening dinner till Sunday morning).
