Fast + Pray Fall 2016
Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. Psalm 127:1
As we reflect back on spring & summer there is much to celebrate! New souls adopted into God's family - lives transformed by the Reality of Jesus - favour with our neighbours and God's provision of presence & testimony through the Chapel. The Spirit growing us in love with our Saviour & our city.
As we look forward to this new season, beautiful opportunities abound. Tons of questions, some significant challenges, some friends sent away on mission, and many new folks looking for a spiritual home in our city. We remain confident that the One who called Reality into life and who leads His church will continue to build his Kingdom, renewing lives & our city with the person & work of Jesus.
It's time to get on our knees and boldly ask the Lord to work in mighty ways this Fall!
Reality is calling Covenant Members, Servant team leads, Community Group leaders & hosts - anyone invested in this community & praying for revival - to a time of fasting and an evening of prayer.
Prayer topics to include:
- Prayer & Praise - for evidences of grace through 2016
- Community Group & Discipleship effectiveness & fruit
- Reality Leadership transitions - leadership cadre, deacons, staff, etc
- Upcoming mission & strategic opportunities, including ALPHA in early 2017
- Prioritization of our time - talent - treasure

Fast will begin Monday, Sept 12 and run through Wednesday, Sept 14.
We'll gather on Wednesday to break the fast with communion & a light meal (soup + buns), followed by a time of extended prayer & praise. 6:30 - 8pm
Please make this time a priority as we align our hearts & minds on God's work for the season ahead.
