Every year in the last three weeks of January, we set time apart to seek God through prayer and fasting. We call this time “Awakening”.
The theme for Awakening this year and for the Thousand Hills Conference on January 25-27 is:
“Come Closer”. This based on the most incredible invitation in the whole of Scripture:
“Come near to God and he will come near to you.” James 4:8
We are invited by the living God to come closer and experience His presence, hear from Him directly and intercede for others. This is a privilege for all of His children, every day, but so often we forget or devalue this invitation. During Awakening, we are drawing closer, expecting God to speak to us personally.
Awakening is most effective when you find a way to incorporate fasting, prayer and devotion.
This guide will help you to participate in this special time in a way that suits you. You will find more information about fasting, prayer and a daily devotional plan that you and your family can use.
Thousand Hills Conference
To close off our time of Awakening, we organize the Thousand Hills Conference on January 25-27. Access is free, but tickets need to be reserved.
During Awakening, there are many ways to join together with others in the church for worship and prayer. On Thursday, January 11 & 18, we offer special Deeper nights at 19.30 at our Hilversum location.
You can also follow the reading schedule every day. Read and discuss it with your family. Every day, one of our Lead Team members will post a short devotion on the passage for that day on Facebook and send it by email.
Our prayer is that, as you are drawing near to God, you will be able to experience God in a new and fresh way and get a clear vision for 2018.
