Prayer and fasting is about creating space for God to speak to us and to move in our lives. We believe as we surrender to God through prayer and fasting, and as we study the Bible, we begin to see changes in our lives.

At the start of each year, we set aside days to pray, fast and seek the face of God and his hand upon our lives for the new year.

FASTING IDEAS

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.
