Prayer

21 DAYS OF PRAYER  

If you sense that God has more for your life, 21 Days of Prayer is a great place to start believing Him for all that He has for you. At the prayer services, you will put seeking God first into practice, and when you do this, you will experience His presence as never before. You will see a difference in your relationships, your work, your family and every area of your life. It is then that you will best be able to spread His love to others.


During this season of prayer, we seek the Lord in these areas:

• Believing God for answered prayer to our specific needs.

• Declaring our dependence on God in every area of our lives.

• Asking for forgiveness for our sins and the sins of our land.

• Praying for the completion of the Great Commission.

• Inviting the Presence of God in our church and our lives.

• Crying out to God for revival in our generation.


Times: Jan. 6-26, 2019  6:15pm - 7:15pm Monday - Friday  

Every Saturday  9:00am - 10:00am

PRAYER AND FASTING

During the January season of 21 Days of Prayer, we encourage fasting as a spiritual next step that can bring clarity and revelation into your life. You can also choose to fast at other times of the year as you seek God.


The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives. Remember, 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.

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.

  • Complete Fast

    In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

  • SELECTIVE FAST

    This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.

  • PARTIAL FAST

    This fast is sometimes called the “Jewish Fast” and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

  • SOUL FAST

    This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.
