21 Days of Prayer & Fasting

21 Days Of Prayer & Fasting
January 10-31 from Midnight-3pm
*No food from 12am-3pm, but drink plenty of water to hydrate yourself.




Purpose of Fasting: Fasting is a discipline of refraining from food for a spiritual purpose. Fasting is a normal part of the Christian lifestyle. We fast when faced with temptations, trials, or potentially dangerous situations such as COVID-19. Fasting brings on repentance. Fasting increases our sensitivity to the Spirit.  Fasting brings on deeper worship and praise.

How Fasting Is Effective: You must pray “during” the fast in order for fasting to be effective. Meditate on God’s word.

What to Pray for: We are corporately praying and fasting for God to completely turn around our ministry, health, mind, finances, family, children, careers, businesses, jobs, etc. We are also praying and fasting for our church building, land, and property.

Fasting for Freedom

    and break every yoke?

Day 5

Fast For Intimacy With God, Not Praise From Man

“When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 1so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

-Matthew 6:16-18

Day 7

Take Out the Old & Do A New Thing

Then John’s disciples came and asked him, “How is it that we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?
Jesus answered, “How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast.
“No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”

Matthew 9:14-17
