21 Days of Prayer and Fasting Challenge

 

Are you ready to take on the New Year? Looking for a way to push yourself spiritually and start this new year off? Then join us in our 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting Challenge! This challenge will be an incredible opportunity to prioritize your relationship with God and focus attention on what matters most. Whether you have a great prayer life or no prayer life at all, this challenge is a powerful way to start 2024!

 

What To Do.

 

One. Follow us on Facebook and check for daily reminders and inspiration.

 

Two. Set aside time each day for reading the Bible and praying. A daily prayer guide has been provided as well as different types of fasts for you to consider. Be sensitive to the Lord’s leading when choosing your fast.

 

Three. Join us each Sunday morning at 10 am as we collectively seek the Lord and His Word. If you’re unable to attend services in person, join us online. There’s nothing better than being with the Body of Christ in corporate worship and prayer! 

 

Reading The Bible.

 

One of the most powerful disciplines you can develop to become more like Christ is to simply read the Bible. If you then create space to meditate on what you’ve read and have a conversation with God about it for the next 21 days, you will be amazed at how much you will grow spiritually.

 

‍If reading the Bible has been a struggle or difficult for you in the past, try using the YouVersion Bible App. It has many different devotional plans for you to choose from. We have a few suggested plans that we recommend you to try during the 21 Day Challenge.

Choosing Your Fast.

 

Let’s be reminded that fasting isn’t a form of punishment for the sins you’ve committed since Christ took care of that for you on the cross. It’s the decision to disconnect yourself from your dependence on the world and yourself.

 

Here are examples of the different types of fasts that you might consider:

 

Complete Fasting: 

‍Talk to your doctor and consult the Holy Spirit before you participate in this option but a complete fast is just that. For 21 days, you would only drink liquids (i.e. water, light juices, etc) for the entire day or designated portions of the day. We've seen this type of fast in the Book of Esther. Queen Esther called the entire nation of Israel to fast for their deliverance (Esther 4:16). It is amazing how long a human body can stand without food, but not without water. However, if God is calling you to this kind of fast, always follow His leading first.

 

‍Selective Fast.

‍This is the most common type of fast since the Bible talks about abstaining from certain foods or drinks. The Daniel Fast found in Daniel 10 is one example of a selective fast (no meats, breads and sweets for 21 days). Whole 30, Vegan/plant based and Paleo meal plans are popular food choices as well.

 

Intermittent Fast.

‍This was a common type of fast for the Hebrew people. For this fast, you’d designate certain times of the day for fasting. For example, no eating from sun up to sundown or choosing to eat only in the morning or the afternoon.

 

Soul Fast:

‍A Soul fast typically means removing luxuries and indulgences outside of food. Its purpose is to guard the types of things that enter your mind and heart during this season. This includes but isn’t limited to social media, music, movies & TV, smart phone usage or screen time either for a certain period or the entire period.
