GOING LIVE ONLINE DEC 13 & 20 or WATCH LATER (Revised Dates)

Prayer & Fasting as Spiritual Warfare
is a LIVE ONLINE Term 2, 2023 FULL COURSE held virtually on Zoom on Two Wednesdays: Dec 13 & 20 from 7:00–9:30pm EST. Once you register for this course, log into your MSI account, choose this course in 'My Courses', and you will find the Zoom link in the Course Contents along with all the course materials as they are shared.

Prayer, or prayer & fasting, by the individual, and especially by the community or body of God's people, can be a very effective form of spiritual warfare! This is first clearly seen in the Tanakh (Torah, Prophets, & Writings). Later, it is clearly seen in the New Covenant Writings. The mainstay prayer that Yeshua (Jesus) taught His disciples ends with "but deliver us from the evil one". Immediately following this prayer, Yeshua says "when you fast"! Such prayer, or prayer & fasting, demonstrates profound dependent trust in God and functions as a very specific call for God to act, intervene, or protect. The people of God have always been characterized by a robust prayer and fasting life. Is that us? Come discover or rediscover the power of prayer and fasting as a normative part of the way of life of the people of God!

MSI LIVE ONLINE courses meet LIVE via Zoom and are recorded for review later. All material from each session of these courses will be available online shortly after each live session. Please make every effort to be present for the LIVE ONLINE sessions. However, while not ideal, you may also register for courses if you cannot attend the live sessions to WATCH LATER at your own pace. We encourage you to follow the schedule closely and plan ahead to be with us for these LIVE ONLINE courses so that you may get the most out of lifelong learning at MSI. After registering for a course, go to 'My Courses', select your course, and use the materials in the 'Course Contents'. The Zoom link for LIVE ONLINE sessions is there.
