Scripture References:

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Matthew 11:28 (NKJV)

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Hebrews 4:14-16 (NKJV)

Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace help in time of need.

John 14:12-14 (NKJV)

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

Habakkuk 2:1 (NKJV)

I will stand my watch And set myself on the rampart, And watch to see what He will say to me, And what I will answer when I am corrected.

We’re certain that you have experienced a multitude of life altering events over the past several years. Some of these events were good and promising, and yet other circumstances presented serious challenges. In the midst of it all, we know that God has a sovereign plan for you that no other event can alter, change, or defeat.

A deeper, more frequent, and intentional prayer life will transform you, this Church, and our Community. That’s why you should strengthen your connection with the Lord, download His divine guidance, and directly respond to His plans for your life. We’re praying that you experience a season of personal renewal, refreshment, and restoration. Hey, you can do this, and let’s do this together with a spirit of unity! If you are ready for positive change, to reach a higher level, then It’s time to Fast and Pray!

PLANNING FOR THE FAST

Pray

Spend time reading the Bible before the Fast. Ask the Holy Spirit for guidance in your prayers. He may guide you differently than He does with other people. The Spirit may direct you to restrain from certain things that He does not require of other people. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit, and His path for your personal renewal.

Consult

Confer with your physician, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or taking medication. Determine the fast that will work best for you, based upon your physician’s recommendation/approval.

Commit

Pray ahead of time about what type of fast you should do and commit to being successful with God’s help. The first day is usually the hardest, but it becomes easier with each subsequent day. You can do it!

The fast you choose is between you and God. Let the Holy Spirit direct and govern the entire process. If you sincerely seek Him then you will hear His response.

DURING THE FAST

Read

Set aside time to read and meditate on God’s Word daily! Be ready to respond to the Word and the Holy Spirit.

Pray

Intercede daily for your family, Church, Pastors, Community, and Nation. Join us for a prayer night. (Scheduled for Wednesday, January 26th at 7pm)

Renew

During mealtime, or during your time of consecration, read the Bible and Pray. Be sure to drink plenty of water and rest as much as you can. Your spiritual awareness will intensify and become keenly stronger during these times. (Note: Be patient with the people around you because you may experience moments of impatience, irritability, and intolerance.)
