As we enter into the New Year, we believe God is calling us to seek him through a time of fasting and prayer. Fasting is a way to temporarily forego good things in order to receive the best, God Himself. When we fast, we give up certain things to remind us of how much we need God. 

As we pray during our fast, we turn our eyes away from things that can distract us and devote ourselves to being in God’s presence and listening for his voice and direction. Join us over the next three weeks as we pray, asking God for:

Corporate PRAyers

  • Wisdom, direction, holiness, and spiritual protection for our leaders (Proverbs 29:18; John 17:15)
  • Freedom for the marginalized, poor, and oppressed (Isaiah 58:6-12)
  • Salvation for the unsaved (2 Corinthians 4:4; Romans 10:1)
  • Provision for our church (2 Corinthians 9:6-11; Matthew 9:37-38)
  • Understanding of and favor with our neighborhoods (Colossians 4:2-6; Acts 17)
  • Increased prayer and dependence (Mark 11:17; 1 Timothy 2:1)

Personal Prayers

  • An awakening of personal hunger for God (Psalm 42:1-2)
  • A sin or idol in your life that you want God to break (Ephesians 4:7-24)
  • An area where you need God’s direction (Proverbs 3:5-6)
  • A greater sense of God’s love and presence (Psalm 46:1; Ephesians 3:17-19)
