What is Fasting?
During these 7 Days, we are giving ourselves to prayer and fasting. A spiritual discipline designed to align our will with God’s. We are fasting together in order to deepen our relationship with God and to ensure our plans and pursuits are led by Him. 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.
The Bible presents many purposes for fasting including to strengthen prayer, to seek God’s guidance, to express grief, to seek deliverance or protection, to express repentance and a return to God. When you fast with the right motives, it is a physical expression of humility before God just as kneeling or prostrating yourself in prayer can reflect humility before Him.
If you are able you are encouraged to participate in a juice fast during these 7 days consuming liquids from fruit or vegetables only. There are different types of fasts you can consider such as a partial-fasts included when someone fasts one meal a day, or from a certain type of food. You may need to consider the Daniel Fast or a liquid protein fast, media fast or even an activity fast.
If you sense God has more for your life, this time of Prayer and Fasting is a great place to start believing Him for all that He has for you. As you practice seeking Him first, He will move on your behalf like never before. You will see the power of prayer impact your relationships, work, family, and every area of your life. We invite you to join us for these 7 Days of Prayer.
