WHAT IS PRAYER?

God started a conversation with His people (us) through His Word. Prayer is our response to Him. And here’s the awesome part, He wants  to hear from us. He delights in us.

WHAT IS FASTING?

Removing things from our lives for a time to pursue intimate fellowship with God. Fasting can be an expression of finding our greatest pleasure and enjoyment in life from God. Food, or whatever we fast from, has a mastery over our lives. Fasting says, "I long to be satisfied in God alone."

WHY DO WE DO THIS TOGETHER AS A CHURCH?

A season of focused prayer and fasting puts our church body on the same trajectory. Imagine the power of thousands of people speaking to our Heavenly Father at the same time about the same thing.

FASTING OVERVIEW

Please keep in mind that your personal fast is not something that has to be compared to other people’s fasts.  It should be challenging for you, though.

Please be sure to consider: Your health and nutritional needs, options of types of fasts, and seeking God and following the Holy Spirit.
 

COMPLETE FAST

In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light

juices as an option.

SELECTIVE FAST

This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.
 

PARTIAL FAST

This fast involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon.  This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.
 

SOUL FAST

This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast. 

WANT TO JOIN US?

We would love to pray for you and your family daily through this fast and would also love to know who all is committing to join us. Please send us an email with your name and the type of fast you will be doing. Feel free to include prayer requests so that we can join together as we seek the face of God and His will for 2021!
