About the Event

Beginning January 22 nd through January 28 th , every member of our church is called upon

to participate in our annual church consecration. Our consecration will end with

communion on Sunday, January 28 th . We will set God as our priority as we focus on God

in our hearts and trust totally in God’s word. Psalms 107:2 says, “Let the redeemed of

the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy.” Our theme

for 2024 is “Go Tell IT!” I pray that as we separate ourselves during consecration, that

we focus on our mission, which is to “Save the Lost and Equip Disciples.” We must

focus our efforts on spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ by telling the world about our

testimony and that Jesus Saves.

I believe that if you are sincere in your desire to draw close to the Lord, the Holy Ghost

will direct you on things to limit or things from which to abstain. Remember our goal is

to let go of our distractions and reprioritize that time to building our relationships with

God. Don’t spend hours each day on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, texting,

watching television and talking to friends on the phone. Let us devote that time instead to

prayer, forgiveness, reading God’s word and seeking God’s will for our lives.

January 2024 Consecration and Fasting Schedule:

I. Prayer during Consecration:

Prayer is essential because it helps our spirit to be in tune with the Holy Spirit. Prayer

helps the believer to be conscious of God’s indwelling presence. It helps the believer to

yield to the Holy Spirit. When we yield to the Spirit, we will exercise dominion over the

flesh. During consecration everyone is asked to:

 Attend CTAC prayer conference calls.

 Pray for at least one hour every day.

 Attend CTAC services faithfully.

Throughout the week and year pray for:

 The salvation of souls in 2024

 Strengthening of marital, family and church family relationships

 Prosperity spiritually and naturally

 Healing spiritually and physically

 Spiritual Gifts and Responsibilities

II. Fasting during Consecration [Those under medical care should consult their

physician before choosing either fast option.]

Fasting Option 1 – Participate in the Daniel Fast. See the above information on

consecration.

Fasting Option 2 – Fast for a total of three days from midnight to 4 p.m. and abstain

from all food and beverages during those hours.

III. Personal Sacrifice – Each member of CTAC is asked to identify something to

sacrifice and abstain from that thing during the consecration.

I strongly believe that if we as a congregation commit ourselves to a period of

consecration – set apart to God – and shun those things that so easily distract us from

strengthening our relationship with Christ; we will see a great move of God and souls

added to the Kingdom like we never have before. If we take this opportunity to “lay aside

every weight” I believe we will see the promises of God, blessings and miracles coming

to pass. Let God have his way and “Go Tell It” in 2024 and claim every soul that

belongs to God in this New Year.

Sincerely,

Suffragan Bishop Jeffery L. Smith
