24 Days of Prayer & Fasting
January 8th - 31st
As we begin this New Year, we want to make room for God to work in our lives. So many of us are asking God for breakthroughs. Breakthroughs in…

Our relationships… Our finances… Our health… Our faith.

Most of us have lived long enough to realize we need something more powerful than New Year’s resolutions to bring about the kind of transformation we long for. We need God and the power of his Holy Spirit! So as we begin this New Year, we want to make room for God to do what only he can do.

Jesus taught his apprentices to engage in practices that can help us make room. That’s why we are inviting everyone to join us from January 8 through January 31 for 24 Days of Prayer and Fasting.

Fasting is one of the oldest and most prevalent spiritual practices in the Bible. Great leaders in the Bible fasted routinely, including Moses, David, Jeremiah, Isaiah, John the Baptist, Jesus and the disciples. In Matthew 6:16, Jesus addresses fasting when he tells the disciples, “When you fast…” Notice Jesus says “when” not “if.” Jesus assumes that we will fast. Though fasting is assumed, it is not required. We don’t have to fast. We get to fast. Like all intentional spiritual practices, fasting should not be legalistic – we are not earning approval from God through fasting.
