Biblical fasting, unlike fasting for medical or health reasons, must be done with an attitude of seriousness and sincerity. When we fast, we willingly deprive the body of nourishment and the pleasurable taste of food. The body requires food for sustenance; therefore, our hearts and minds must be totally focused and directed toward God so that He may be the full source of our strength during our period of fasting.
Each year, in January and August, we collectively fast as a church focusing our efforts to put God first in all that we do. These two months are intentional, as they begin new seasons of the year. Together, we faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives, our church, and our world.
If you sense God has more for your life, 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting is a great place to start believing Him for all that He has for you. As you practice seeking Him first, He will move on your behalf like never before. You will start to see the power of prayer impact your relationships, work, family, and every area of your life. Whether you join us in person or online, we would love for you to be part of 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting.
21 Days of Prayer and Fasting is from August 3 – 22, 2020. We’ll meet at the Vine Studio during the week at 6 AM, 9 AM each Saturday, and 8:30 AM at the Troy Recreation Center on Sunday.
