Joshua (in Joshua 3:5) tells the Israelites ... 

"Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you."

 

Before the Israelistes stepped into the promised land there was a time of preparation.  God wanted to do something in their hearts and lives before they stepped into the promises He had for them.  In the same way, when we come to our time of prayer & fasting, it’s about a fresh consecration or devotion to God and opening our hearts to what He wants to do in our lives.  It’s not about coming with a list of requests but it’s an opportunity to come and surrender our lives afresh to God.  

 

So we’re setting aside the 21 days to pray & fast & SEEK FIRST God!

 

In Matthew 6 Jesus makes the following statements:

Verse 5 “And when you pray …” + Verse 16 “When you fast …”

 

Jesus spoke of prayer & fasting as key parts of our spiritual walk.  He didn’t say “If you pray” or “If you fast”.  

 

We’ve provided a prayer guide for the next 21 days.  CLICK HERE!
 

And we’ve also included some information about fasting that will help you prepare for this exciting season.  CLICK HERE!

And during our 21 days of prayer & fasting we’ll also have opportunities to gather together for corporate prayer - check below for what meetings are happening in your local campus. 

 

Let’s stand together, consecrate ourselves (through prayer & fasting) and let’s see what amazing things God has in store for us!

FASTING GUIDE

What is fasting and why do we do it?

 

WHAT IS A FAST?

A fast is the abstinence of something that is part of your normal life for the purpose of focusing more time on prayer and your relationship with God.

 

WHY FAST?

 

  • Fasting was an expected discipline in both the Old and New Testament eras. For example, Moses fasted at least two recorded 40-day periods.  Jesus fasted 40 days and reminded His followers to fast - ‘WHEN you fast’, not IF you fast.

  • Fasting and prayer can restore the loss of the “first love” for your Lord and result in a more intimate relationship with Christ.  (Joel 2:12).

  • Fasting can be a time when God gives you increased revelation from the word.

  • Fasting can transform your prayer life into a richer and more personal experience.

  • Fasting can result in a dynamic personal revival in your own life and make you a channel of revival to others.

  • Fasting can produce breakthroughs. (Matthew 6:18)

  • Fasting can be the catalyst by which God produces a new season in your life. (Acts 13:2)

  • Fasting can be a way by which God gives you clear direction on particular issues.

HOW TO FAST

1. CLEARLY IDENTIFY YOUR AREAS OF DESIRED BREAKTHROUGH

  • Ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit

  • Write down the things that you want to see happen

 

2. DECIDE WHAT TO FAST

There are a number of alternatives you can choose in the way you want to fast.  Just be open to God and ask Him what He wants you to sacrifice. See Types of Fasting.

 

3. CONSIDER FINDING A PRAYER-PARTNER FOR THE 21 DAYS

Prayer partners can encourage you when the going gets tough and support you in your prayer goals. 

 

4. PREPARE SPIRITUALLY

  • At the beginning of the 21 days surrender your life fully to Jesus Christ (confess your sins to God, forgive anyone who has offended you and ask forgiveness from those you have offended).

  • Ask the Holy Spirit to help you and lead you.

 

5. MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR FAST

  • Pray as often as you can - fasting without prayer is just a diet!

  • Read your Bible regularly.

  • Spend time alone in the presence of God, worshipping Him and opening your heart fully to Him.

  • Keep a journal of the things God says to you, the prayer points He gives you and the answers He provides.

  • Pray with faith and hope, knowing that God is able.

6. KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT

  • When you fast your body detoxifies, eliminating toxins from your system.

  • This can cause mild discomfort for the first few days (e.g. headaches, irritability during withdrawal from caffeine and sugars).

  • Limit your activity and exercise.

  • Take time to rest.

TYPES OF FASTS

JUICE FAST

In this type of fast you abstain from eating solids and only drink fluids such as water, juice and vegetable broth. (Before conducting this type of fast we highly recommend that you go to www.billbright.com/howtofast so that you know how to conduct it safely)

 

DANIEL FAST

This is the diet that Daniel ate when he first went to Babylon, namely during a three-week period in which he abstained from delicacies, meat and wine (Daniel 10:3). A Daniel fast is therefore made up of basically water, fruit & vegetables.

 

DELICACIES FAST

This is where you abstain from certain delicacies that you would normally indulge in such as chocolate, desserts, coffee etc.

 

Obviously for some people because of health concerns it is inappropriate for them to conduct a fast involving food.  However, there are some other things that you could fast:

 

MEDIA FAST

In this type of fast you abstain from media such as TV, movies etc and you spend the time praying and seeking the Lord.

 

HOBBY FAST

This is where you refrain from conducting a particular hobby and you choose to spend that time praying and seeking the Lord.

 

MIX 'N' MATCH

You can also choose to break up the 21 days into different kinds of fasting.  For example you might want to do a juice fast on the weekends, and a Daniel fast during the week, or you could do a juice fast for one week and a Daniel fast for the other week.

 

Whatever fast or combination of fasts you choose remember that it is a sacrifice between you and God.
