God Reveals Things Through Fasting and Prayer – Co-op City Baptist Church

Church Building Fund

$2,690 of $0 raised


“The doctors said I probably wouldn’t live very long….”  

Our founding pastor, the late Rev. Julius Sasportas, would often share the story of his fragile start in life. But he defied the odds and lived for over 90 years.

Rev. Sasportas’ experience is a metaphor for the Co-op City Baptist Church.

We’ve had to scrape, sacrifice and fight for everything. Although we’ve been knocked down many times, by God’s grace, we have never been KNOCKED OUT.

Any day now, cranes will arrive on the site, and the “digging” will begin!

Our new church edifice will include a state-of-the-art facility to house a comprehensive youth education and recreational program.

But, we can do more things faster for our kids if we’re not in debt. Working in the red is why many large community-based projects shut down. And we will not fail these kids! We need to earn $100,000 in a year.

Kindly donate, and share this link through social media so others can join this effort.

It’s easy to say you want our kids to excel in math, reading, technology and science, but will you actively support such an outcome?

Even if you don’t know us, please do this **(seriously)** …

Pray over your credit card. Then make your donation as a love offering to God. He will bless you for being a blessing to children.  Thank you!

God Reveals Things Through Fasting and Prayer

Sunday February 4, 2018

Scripture: Daniel 10:1-9

Text: Daniel 10:7

Theme: God Reveals Things Through Fasting and Prayer

This passage describes a vision that Daniel had in response to his fervent prayer for the Jews who had returned to the promised land. It shows how demonic forces were trying to prevent his prayer from being answered so the Jews could not fulfill their God-given purpose: to be the channel through whom God would send His Holy Word and the Messiah into the world.

This is the first of three chapters that deal with Daniel’s final vision. The present chapter takes readers behind the scenes of world history to reveal the cosmic spiritual forces that seek to wreak havoc on the people of the earth, particularly believers.

1. Daniel’s prayer and mourning prior to the vision: stresses the need to pray and fast (10:1-3).
2. Daniel’s encounter with an awesome being: stresses the need to be humble and surrendered to Christ (10:4-9)

I pray that you will come and visit with us this Sunday to hear how God can move in your life.

May God continue to bless you richly.
