Welcome to 7 days of Prayer and Fasting!
Walking with Jesus is for the adventurer and for those willing to grow and try something new or deep!
This week you are invited to join us on this adventure, as we pray and fast.
Fasting is abstaining from food to focus on spending time with Jesus.
It is saying no to our earthly appetite for a specific time and this allows our spiritual appetite to grow and mature.
Matt 6:16 “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18 so that it will not be obvious to men that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
“When you fast…” Fasting is a natural discipline of a Christian.
The point of this is to spend more time with Jesus and grow in our spiritual keenness, spiritual authority and receive clarity from our Father as our closeness with Him grows.
It’s not about giving up food and then using that time for other things or allowing our appetite to move us towards other things.
It’s about setting aside time to receive as we make space and as we pray!
Abstaining from other things can also be helpful such as TV, social media, internet or whatever you feel needs to be given up to get closer to God.
The whole point is an invitation to grow in power as a fully empowered child of God!!!

So go for it!!! Find a space, a prayer partner, be part of our prayer room and decide what you will fast and how you will spend each day in prayer.
Praise God that He is waiting for us with good gifts. He is a Good Father and enjoys seeing His children set aside time for Him.
I also invite you to tell us your story of what happens during this week of Prayer and Fasting at email@example.com.
Enjoy all that God has for you to receive this week!
