21 DAYS of PRAYER + FASTING

We believe that prayer changes things. Every year as a church community, we come together to prayer and fast for 21 days in order to seek God for the new year! Our hope for you is that you would experience God in a new and fresh way.

Join us as we start our fast on Sunday, January 3rd along with prayer on our Instagram and Facebook posts every day.

WHAT IS FASTING + WHY DO WE DO IT?

Fasting is simply withstanding from something in order to focus our attention and efforts towards God. When we partner this with prayer, we are able to see God do the miraculous! We believe prayer is a pivotal part of fasting.

TYPES OF FASTS

Your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do and what is safe for your health.

COMPLETE FAST

Liquids only, typically water, juices, smoothies.

SELECTIVE FAST

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

Fasting at certain times of the day. Example: fasting breakfast or dinner

SOUL FAST

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.

REMEMBER THIS WHEN YOU PRAY

ANYONE CAN PRAY

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16

JESUS TAUGHT US TO PRAY

This, then, is how you should pray: ‘‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name…’” Matthew 6:9-13

PRAYER IS SIMPLY TALKING TO GOD

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 1 John 5:14

PRAY ALL THE TIME, ANYWHERE, ABOUT ANYTHING

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
