Fasting is a discipline to put down the flesh, and it allows the Holy Spirit to increase to lead and guide you. It is a humbling of the soul. It brings forth godly sorrow for sin. It gets your focus off other things, and puts it on God. For effective results with your fast, we encourage you to:
-Attend church services and corporate prayer
-Read book of Hebrews 2-3 chapters a day
-Attend bible studies
-Fellowship with other believers to edify and to
praise & worship the Lord together
-Abstain from entertainment which includes, but is
not limited to: watching television, movies, social
media, video games and other games, sports, and
any other forms of entertainment or recreation.
This is a time of directing our attention on God.
-Avoid negativity, strife, discord, complaining, and
-Fasting dates are Monday, 7/10 - Friday, 7/14 to
conclude with all night prayer from 7pm - 12am.
Last meal will be on the evening of Sunday, 7/9.
