21 Days of Prayer and Fasting

Sunday, January 7th –
Saturday, January 28th

Join us for 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting where we will intentionally abstain from certain foods in an effort to draw closer to God, hear His voice, and know His perfect will for our lives. During this period, we will engage in the Daniel Fast. We also invite everyone to join our Breakthrough Prayer Call every morning at 7am CST. At the end of our time of prayer and fasting, we encourage everyone to join us for 24 Hours of Prayer (22 Hours Online and 2 Hours @ Derby Campus & Online). There, we will worship and pray together for our churches, our marriages, our children, our health, our plans/goals, and our obedience to follow through on every God-given assignment we receive this year.

What Should We Do While Fasting?

It is imperative that you spend time with God. Over the next 21 Days, we encourage you to:

  • Join our daily Breakthrough Prayer Call at 7am CST. Dial 775-799-9087  

  • Commit to the SOAP Devotion Plan

  • Participate in 24 Hours of Prayer (22 Hours Online and 2 Hours @ Derby Campus & Online)beginning Friday, January 26th

Prepare Yourself Spiritually

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).
