21 Days of Prayer + Fasting

Let’s kick off 2022 together as we fast and pray as a church and align our hearts on Christ. We will begin our church-wide fast on January 10, 2022 and finish on January 30, 2022. We would love for you to join us as a church. Click below to sign up!
 

WHY DO WE FAST?

 
Fasting is about greater intimacy with God and personal and corporate breakthrough. As a church, set aside time to pray, fast and wait on God to realign our thoughts with God’s heart and hope while believing for breakthrough in our lives, families and cities.

Fasting is more about what you gain and less about what you lose. It is a heart posture, open and ready to receive what God has for us. It isn’t just about the denial of food or drink, but about changing the way you see and believing that God is enough for you. When you have the urge to eat, drink, you can turn to the Word of God. By reading His word and going to God in prayer, you’ll find what you’re looking for. Abstaining from food, drink, isn’t easy, but you will be strengthened in your spirit, learning to seek Him first and growing in wisdom and faith for the upcoming year.
 

HOW:

 
1. To begin each day, you can join a free 21-day devotional plan. If you have the Bible App, look for the plan 21 Days of Fasting and Praying Open My Eyes (By Jentezen Franklin) or you can click the link here –https://www.bible.com/reading-plans/17820 
 
2. Set aside 7:00 – 7:30 pm for each day to pray. You can pray wherever you are. On Wednesdays, we encourage everyone to join the midweek prayer and worship at the church (791 Lombardi Ct).
 
3. Prayer Items (for other things as you are led)
 
A. The year 2022 – for God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
B. For yourself to be hungry for God, for His word, to die in our selfish desires and be ready to obey for what He has for us this year.
C. Families (marriages, relationships, finances, restoration of families)
D. Churches (leadership, vision and purpose, reach and disciple the lost, finances, mission partners all over the world)
E. Local and National (peace in nations, godly wisdom, unity, leadership
 
4. You can fast according to your faith (liquid fast, Daniel fast, full fasting (6am-6pm), etc.) during the 21 days (every day or pick one of the days).
