21 Day of Prayer and Fasting

We make it a priority to start off the new year with 21 days of prayer and fasting to align ourselves with God’s word.

Every morning start your day with one of our Pastoral staff sharing a short devo.


How Should I Fast?

The best way to get started is to pray and ask the Lord for wisdom on how you should fast. Maybe you need to refrain from indulging in desserts, take a break from social media, or pause Netflix for three weeks. Once you’ve determined how you will fast, stick to it, and watch how God moves in your life!

Choose one of these options:

A DAILY MEAL (Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or intermittent)

A FOOD GROUP (meat, sweets, solids, or breads/grains)

A DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT (TV, social media, streaming platforms, or video games)

Pray consistently each day, during that specific time frame, or a set time that works for you.


Why Should I Fast?

If there is something you’ve been praying for, working to overcome, or seeking God’s wisdom on, fasting is a perfect way to quiet all the noise and tune in to what God has to say.

The Bible is full of examples of the power of fasting and prayer. In Judges 20, after facing terrible defeat, the Israelites fasted and asked God for guidance ahead of their next battle—which they won! In Daniel 10, Daniel fasted before receiving a vision from God. And in Matthew 4, before Jesus began His ministry, He fasted 40 days.

Fasting tips:

Schedule time with God
Find a quiet place
Keep your journal close
Practice postures of prayer
Have an accountability partner
