september 12 – october 2

Why Fast?

People fast for various reasons. Some of the most common are spiritual renewal, guidance/clarity, healing, resolution of problems, and special grace to handle a difficult situation. Ask the Holy Spirit to clarify His leading and objectives for your fast. This will enable you to pray more specifically and strategically. Through fasting and prayer, we humble ourselves before God so the Holy Spirit will stir our souls, awaken our churches, and heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14). Make this a priority in your fasting.

Make Your Commitment

There are a number of different types of fasts. During this season of prayer and fasting, TWC will restrict physical and social activities in an effort to eliminate distractions (i.e. eating out, watching tv, engaging on social media, excessive texting, etc.) for 21 days. We will fill the time with:

  • Prayer

  • Reading God’s Word

  • Spending time hearing God through the SOAP Devotional

  • Joining the 7am CST Breakthrough Prayer Call

Decide now how much time each day you will devote to spending time with God and what you will sacrifice. Making this commitment ahead of time will help you sustain your fast when temptations and life’s pressures tempt you to abandon it.

Prepare Yourself Spiritually

The very foundation of fasting and prayer is repentance. Unconfessed sin will hinder your prayers. Here are several things you can do to prepare your heart:

  • Ask God to reveal any unconfessed sin  

  • Confess every sin that the Holy Spirit calls to your remembrance and accept God’s forgiveness (1 John 1:9)

  • Seek forgiveness from all whom you have offended and forgive all who have hurt you (Mark 11:25; Luke 11:4; 17:3,4)

  • Make restitution as the Holy Spirit leads you

  • Ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit according to His command in Ephesians 5:18 and His promise in 1 John 5:14,15

  • Surrender your life fully to Jesus Christ as your Lord and Master; refuse to obey your worldly nature/flesh (Romans 12:1,2)

  • Meditate on the attributes of God: His love, sovereignty, power, wisdom, faithfulness, grace, and compassion (Psalm 48:9,10; 103:1-8. 11-13)

  • Begin your time of fasting and prayer with an expectant heart (Hebrews 11:6)

  • Do not underestimate spiritual opposition. Satan sometimes intensifies the battle between body and spirit (Galatians 5:16,17)

Stay The Course

Our 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting will begin and end with worship. Join us Monday, September 12 & Sunday, October 2 for Encounter Nights (Time: TBD). This virtual service will be streamed on TWC’s Online Campus as well as YouTube. Open your heart and mind to Holy Spirit as our Worship Ministry leads us into the presence of God. Allow Holy Spirit to break up any callous ground in your heart and mind so that you can hear and receive all that God has for you over the next 21 days. God wants to speak to you. Your responsibility is to stay the course.
