21 DAYS OF PRAYER

At the beginning of each calendar year, we join together as a church family to seek God through prayer and fasting. This year’s dates are Sunday, January 7th through Saturday, January 28th.

The expressed purpose of these three weeks is to faithfully seek God’s will for our church, both corporately and individually, to deepen our understanding of all the ways in which He sustains us, and to see Him move in power among our community.

In sum, we intentionally go without things that are temporal in order to be filled with things that are eternal.

If you sense God has more for your life than what you are currently experiencing, we’d encourage you to join us in “seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness”. (Matthew 6:33)

 

PRAYER MEETINGS

  • Tuesday – Friday 12pm – 1pm
  • during the 21 days, we will hold a corporate prayer gathering from 7:30pm – 7:45pm to close out family night each Wednesday.
  • JANUARY 8th

    Psalm 119:1-8

    Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,
    who walk according to the law of the Lord.

    Galatians 5:1

    He is A Good Father

    DECLARATION

    I am a child of God. Because He is a good Father, he chose to to make us his own children by giving us his true word. We, out of all creation, are his prized possession. Every good and perfect thing comes from God our Father who never changes.

    Romans 8:15 | James 1: 17-18

    The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”

    Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first fruits of all he created.

    My God Who Restores/Redeems

    DECLARATION

    God has redeemed my life and will restore broken things. He will guide me continually, giving me water when I am dry and restoring my strength. I believe that restoration is possible in my life and the lives of others.

    Psalm 107:1 | Isaiah 58:11 | 2 Corinthians 13:9-11

    Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.

    The Lord will guide you always;
    he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
    and will strengthen your frame.
    You will be like a well-watered garden,
    like a spring whose waters never fail.

    We are glad whenever we are weak but you are strong; and our prayer is that you may be fully restored. 10 This is why I write these things when I am absent, that when I come I may not have to be harsh in my use of authority—the authority the Lord gave me for building you up, not for tearing you down. 11 Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.

    Trading My Wisdom For His Wisdom

    DECLARATION

    My life belongs to God. Daily I seek him and daily he directs my steps. I know his voice and he leads me to his perfect will. I am called to go after the righteous desires that God puts in my heart.

    James 1:5-9 | Proverbs 3:5-6

    If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. 9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.

    Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
    6 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

    Isaiah 43:25 | Psalm 103:3

    “I, even I, am he who blots out
    your transgressions, for my own sake,
    and remembers your sins no more.

    who forgives all your sins
    and heals all your diseases,

    The Love of God

    DECLARATION

    I am loved by God and worthy to receive his love. I am fiercely protected by the almighty, all powerful God of the universe who loves me unconditionally and never stops fighting for me.

    1 Corinthians 13:4-8

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

    Pray With Confidence

    DECLARATION

    Jesus, I am thankful that because of your sacrifice I can boldly approach your throne. You understand our weakness and offer us grace when we need it. I thank you that my prayers are powerful and effective because of who you are and the sacrifice that was made.

    Hebrews 4:14-16

    Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven,[a] Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

    I am thankful for a God who forgives. We are all sinners in need of forgiveness and that forgiveness is only possible through the death of Jesus in our place. Because God forgives me, I intentionally offer forgiveness to others.

    John 15:7-8 | John 15:13-15

    If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

    Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.

    Galatians 5:22-26

    But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

    21 DAYS OF FASTING

    We have chosen to make it a priority as a church to seek God in prayer collectively from January 7th – 28th. Together, we will come together to faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives, our church, and our world.

    The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives. Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.

    ABOUT FASTING

    Fasting is a spiritual practice that enables the body of Christ to grow in their relationship with God. The purpose of a fast is to set aside a specific span of time for restricting certain foods or practices as a physical commitment to seek God through deeper personal engagement and fervent prayer. When we combine fasting with prayer and meditation, we can experience a more focused time of closeness with our Lord and seek His wisdom and help.

    TYPES OF FASTING

    COMPLETE FAST

    In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with optional light juices.

    SOUL FAST

    This fast is a great option if you don’t have much experience fasting from 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.

    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 6am to 3pm, or from sunup to sundown.

    SELECTIVE FAST

    This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, a pseudo vegan fast, during which you remove meat, sweets and bread from your diet, consume water and juice for fluids, and fruits and vegetables for food.

    THE DANIEL FAST
