Month of Devotion

Each year we set aside January as a month to seek God together as a church. We encourage everyone who attends New Life Austin to join in our collective consecration of fasting, prayer, Bible reading, and removing distractions.



1. Fasting. Set aside a time of fasting each week. This should be a fast from food. Newcomers may find one day of fasting to be a significant challenge. Others are encouraged to fast two or three days a week, even if not on consecutive days.

2. Prayer. Have a daily time of prayer. Designate a place and time where you will pray each day. Also join in other believers before our evening services, at the end of our services, at Tuesday morning ladies prayer, and at House-to-House prayer on January 18 at 7:30 pm. Also, there is a 24-hour prayer chain during this time. You can sign up online by clicking the following link: 24-HOUR-PRAYER CHAIN.

3. Bible reading. Read Scripture daily. If you are new to reading the Bible, this is a great opportunity to read the Psalms or one of the Gospels. We would encourage everyone to follow the BREAD progam at or go through a devotional with New Life members on your YouVersion Bible App.

4. Remove distractions. It is recommended that we all get rid of distractions and frivolous things which distract from spiritual thought, meditation, and a focus on God. These include social media, entertainment, and other things which clutter our minds.
