Prepare for 2010 – Prayer, Fast, Grow

image Personal post. This year our church set aside three days to fast, pray and dig deep in to God’s word. I’ve never done anything like this before. I loved it. I once heard a story about the taking time to sharpen your axe. In other words reflect on the future, and prepare emotionally, physically and spiritually for what lies ahead.

I think that most people go through life never thinking about how or what they might need to prepare for in the future. We had great speakers every night. I’m including the three talks below. What are you doing to prepare for this new year?


Pastor Brady Boyd from Colorado Springs, CO kicked things off with a challenge to be More Than Conquers… Super Mega hooper neako! (you’ll have to watch for that to make sense)
