21 Day Fast

JAN 7 - JAN 27


For 21 days we collectively pray as a church in January and August through 21 Days of Prayer. These two months are intentional, as they begin new seasons of the year. Together, we faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives, our church, and our world.


Prayer

During the 21 days, (Monday-Friday) we'll meet in the worship center of Faith Florence from 12-1.

As you practice seeking Him first, He will move on your behalf like never before. You will start to see the power of prayer impact your relationships, work, family, and every area of your life. We would love for you to be part of 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting.



Prayer and Fasting


During the January season of 21 Days of Prayer, we encourage fasting as a spiritual next step that can bring clarity and revelation into your life. You can also choose to fast at other times of the year as you seek God.



What is Fasting?

The simplest definition is

abstaining from food for a spiritual purpose.


It is a powerful spiritual discipline that the Holy Spirit can use to transform your life and bring breakthrough to your circumstances. While biblically and historically the most common thing to fast is food, you can fast anything. Even fasting sex is mentioned in scripture. (1 Corinthians 7:5)

Why Should I Fast?

While there are no Biblical laws that command regular fasting, Jesus assumes that Christians will fast when he makes the statement in Matthew 6:16, "When you fast" not “if” you fast. Fasting was a spiritual discipline in both the Old and New Testament eras. For example, Moses fasted to get closer to God, Jesus fasted to begin his ministry, Ezra fasted to mourn sin, Esther fasted for protection, etc. 


Fasting and prayer can restore the loss of your "first love" for Jesus and result in a more intimate relationship with Christ. Fasting is a biblical way to truly humble yourself in the sight of God (Psalm 35:13; Ezra 8:21). King David said, "I humble myself through fasting." Fasting enables the Holy Spirit to reveal your true spiritual condition, resulting in brokenness, repentance, and a transformed life. The Holy Spirit will quicken the Word of God in your heart and His truth will become more meaningful to you! Fasting can transform your prayer life into a richer and more personal experience.
