Welcome to 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting.
We don’t enter this moment flippantly or mechanically. Our heart is to encounter God in a fresh, life-changing way which enables us to know him and make him known in every way needed for such a time as this. We are seeking him and asking that his will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).
Fasting is a grace-infused practice of abstaining from food in order to make room for growing spiritual attentiveness, awareness, and maturity.
We have prepared a devotional guide - a resource for each day of this 40-day journey. It is a tool that we hope will connect you more intimately with God as you spend time reading his Word, reflecting and praying. It is also a tool to guide you in some practical and effective steps to moving Outward with the Mission. You can pick up the guide at church or find an electronic version by clicking the button below.
The 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting will move us into Holy Week and conclude with our Good Friday service on March 29! If you need some help coming up with your plan, please reach out to your Community Group leader, a staff member or an elder. All our leaders are glad to be a sounding board as you seek to determine how the Lord would have you engage this season of prayer and fasting.
May God richly use this season in our lives individually and collectively as a church to do something that only he can do!
