Whether fasting is a regular discipline in your life or is something that is new to you, we invite you to embrace a time of prayer and fasting with us from January 14-20.
Fasting is one of the most powerful weapons God has given us for our daily lives. Through personal and corporate fasting, churches and individuals can become more sensitive to God’s voice, build a more intimate relationship with Jesus, experience direction and clarity, healing, release from the bondage of sin, restoration, financial blessings, and so much more!
During this time of corporate fasting, we will take the time to seek the Lord on what He is in store for us as a church community. On Sunday, January 14, Pastor Ottis Barnett will outline areas of prayer that we can focus on personally in our own lives, as well as a church community during our time of corporate prayer and fasting. In addition to this, we have created a three-day prayer and worship schedule that we invite you to be a part of as we come before the Lord together in prayer.
Corporate Prayer Schedule:
- Monday, January 15, 6:30-7:30PM – Corporate prayer and worship
- Wednesday, January 17, 6:30-7:30PM – Corporate prayer and worship
- Friday, January 19, 6:30-7:30PM – Corporate prayer and worship
The sanctuary will be open from 12:00-5:00PM, Monday – Thursday for personal prayer and worship.
All worship and prayer events will take place in our sanctuary (childcare available, ages 0-11).
Types of Fasts:
Full Fast – Drink only liquids (water, juices).
Daniel Fast – Eat no meat, no sweets, and no bread. Drink water and juice. Eat fruits and vegetables.
Partial Fast – A partial fast is from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm or from sun-up to sun-down. You can select from three types of fasting–a Full Fast, Daniel Fast, or give up at least one item of food.
What if I am Not Able to Fast Food?
If fasting food is not possible for you because of a medical condition, for example, then consider giving up television, movies, or other recreational activities. The critical factor would be to make a meaningful sacrifice that turns your attention to God.
