Merced and Madera New Life Apostolic Church will be kicking off the “21 Days Prayer and Fasting Journey” on January 8th, 2018.  Please click on the Resources page to download the Prayer and Fasting guide.  You will find the Prayer and Fasting schedule here.

Please take the time to view the Prayer and Fasting Journey introduction from our Pastor, Bishop Joe Aguilar below.

Prayer Journey Schedule 2018

Dear brethren, nothing important ever happens without prayer and nothing significant happens without fasting. Even more so, nothing creative happens without fasting and prayer. We live in a time where we have to be creative. We need new ideas, new methods, and a new structure that drives us to achieve the mission statement that supposedly unites us all. Exalt Christ, Evangelize the World, and Equip the Church. Today more than ever we need for God to give us: Wisdom, Guidance and Unity in Mission and Purpose.
