Let’s kick off 2021 together as we fast as a church and center our hearts on Jesus. This fast is for everyone!!
Together, we will pray for families and individuals, salvations, our towns and cities, and our pastors and leaders. You can participate at any level you wish. We invite everyone to join in this 21 day fast.
Check out the different types of fasts and tips to prepare. We are believing for a mighty move of God!
WHY WE FAST
Fasting is about breakthrough and intimacy with God—both personally and corporately. We are uniting as a church by setting aside time to read God's word, pray, fast, and wait on God to realign our thoughts and refill our spirits with the heart of the Father.
WHAT IS FASTING?
Biblical fasting can be defined as abstaining from food for spiritual purposes. John Piper writes, “Christian fasting, at its root, is the hunger of a homesickness for God.”
When we fast, we get our hunger back for the presence of God. When the body of Christ seeks intimacy in private, there WILL be corporate breakthrough!
Everyone of importance in the Bible practiced fasting: Moses, David, Elijah, Esther, Daniel, Paul, and of course, Jesus, just to name a few. When Jesus taught on fasting, He said, when you fast not if you fast. He assumed that we would fast. We were created with fasting as a part of our rhythm. Think about how we sleep at night (obviously not eating) and then wake and eat during the day.
As we fast together, we're joining many believers across the globe to refresh our hearts and minds.

Plan your prayer time: set aside time each day to read your Bible and journal, and time to just sit in His presence.
