Corporate Fast

Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 12:00 AM - Friday, September 14, 2018, 7:15 PM

PREPARING SPIRITUALLY:

Confess your sins to God. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal areas of weakness. Forgive all who have offended you and ask forgiveness from those you may have offended (Mark 11:25; Luke 11:4; 17:3-4). Surrender your life fully to Jesus Christ and reject the worldly desires that try to hinder you (Romans 12:1-2).

DECIDING WHAT TO FAST:

The type of fasting you choose is up to you. You could go on a full fast in which you only drink liquids, or you may desire to fast like Daniel, who abstained from sweets and meats, and the only liquid he drank was water. Remember to replace that time with prayer and Bible study.

TYPE OF FAST:

Full Fast - Drink only liquids (you establish the number of days)
The Daniel Fast - Eat no meat, no sweets, and no bread. Drink water and juice. Eat fruit and vegetables.
3-Day Fast - This fast can be a full fast, a Daniel fast, or avoiding one type of food.
Partial Fast - A partial fast is from 6:00am to 3:00pm or from sunup to sundown; avoiding one type of food is better than one item of food.

"Draw near" 

Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16)

Wednesday: ChurCH

Pray for unity, purity, and devotion to His purpose. 

I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17: 23 

Thursday: COMMUNITY

Pray that a spiritual awakening would begin

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. Isaiah 60:1

Friday: Nation

Pray that God would plow the heart of our country that the Word of the Lord would be able to more easily enter. 

But he answered, “It is written,“‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4
