21 DAYS OF PRAYER & FASTING
Praying and Fasting are spiritual disciplines designed to better connect us with God by intentionally disconnecting from our usual routine. It’s all about aligning ourselves with God and what He really wants to do. As a church, we are fasting together in order to deepen our relationship with God as well as get in step with His plan and purpose for us during this coming year.
At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over. Daniel 10:2-3.
Jan. 12/13th – Feb. 2/3rd, 2019 • 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting
We will substitute our regular food intake with those disciplines that help us better connect with God—reading the Bible, praying and journaling. The overall goal is to experience a genuine hunger for spending time with God. Remember, the idea is to be realistic, not tied-down by it. Focus more on the details of connecting with God than the details of the menu, and you will discover the blessings of fasting.
Jan. 12, 19, 26 & Feb. 2nd 2019 • Crave Prayer
Let’s get together as a church in the Worship Center from 8-9am to pray during our 21 days of fasting.
Feb. 2/3rd 2019 • Worship Services
We will come together for a great weekend of music and celebration, and end the fast after church.
The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, which means that we will eliminate some common things from our daily diet, but will have generous options available. We will focus on eating fruits and vegetables that are pure and simple. We have included a list of foods to eat and foods to avoid.
If you have any condition, which would prohibit you from being a part of the Daniel Fast, there are other options. Choose something from your daily routine (i.e. speciﬁc foods or beverages, television, other technology, etc.) and fast in that way for the next 21 days. Remember, the details are not as important as the spirit in which you participate.
*If you have any known medical conditions or suspect such conditions, consult your doctor before beginning the fast.
Over the next 21 days you will undoubtedly discover some amazing beneﬁts of fasting. As God blesses your life, we encourage you to write down your prayers and experiences, and share them with us. They might be just the encouragement someone needs.
