Prayer connects us to God.
If you ever get to a place in your life where you feel like something is missing, it’s probably a connection problem: you are disconnected from God and too connected to the world. Prayer and fasting can have a powerful impact on setting your life back on track. The more time you spend with something or someone, the more confidence you build in it. The same is true for God. The more time you spend with God, the more your faith in Him will grow.
Fasting disconnects us from the world.
Fasting is one of the least known disciplines in the church, but it is a practice mentioned both in the Old and New Testament of the Bible and by Jesus Himself, and it has incredible power for our lives today. Fasting isn’t about punishing yourself because God wants you to suffer, rather it’s about intentionally disconnecting from wordly things for a season so you can hear from God and experience the full life He has for you. Every January, we incorporate fasting into our 21 Days of Prayer emphasis.
You can begin today.
Stevens Creek Church is built on prayer. There are multiple opportunities for you to participate in prayer and receive prayer. We even set aside two months out of the year which are dedicated to prayer. We believe that when you make prayer a priority, God shows up in big ways.
Prayer is our opportunity to connect with God and develop a relationship with Him. It is also an opportunity to bring our requests to Him. From relationship struggles to employment issues, God cares about every aspect of our lives and wants to connect with us in prayer.
21 Days of Prayer
Stevens Creek makes it a priority to seek God first in prayer. We do this as a church in January and August through 21 Days of Prayer. These two months are intentional, as they begin new seasons of the year. Our next 21 Days of Prayer will occur on January 8th-28th, 2017.LEARN MORE

Are you going through a difficult time?
Consider letting a Care Minister help. A Care Minister is a member of our church family who has been trained to listen, care, encourage, pray, and walk alongside you during difficult times. They are not counselors, but they are a “safe place.” It’s confidential, free, and very helpful. If you are interested in learning more about our Care Ministry, contact us.
