21 Days of Prayer and Fasting
January 8 – January 28
Join us for 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting where we deny our flesh and open our hearts and minds to hear God’s voice and know His perfect will for our lives. During this period, we will engage in the Daniel Fast. We will also gather on 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 at our Derby Campus for 24 Hours of Prayer. 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.
How should we prepare for the fast?
For the Daniel Fast, it’s smart to plan ahead. Make sure you have plenty of fruits and vegetables. We have provided a list of nutritious foods that you can enjoy while on the Daniel Fast. Please check with your doctor for a modified version of the Daniel Fast if you have any health issues or concerns.

Join our daily Breakthrough Prayer Call at 7am CST. Dial 775-799-9087
Commit to our S.O.A.P. Devotion Plan

Incorporate 30-minutes of physical activity into your daily routine
(You’ll be surprised how a daily walk/activity will provide an opportunity to hear from God)
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
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
Do not underestimate spiritual opposition. Satan sometimes intensifies the battle between body and spirit
