Biblical Fasting And Prayer
Would you like to grow in your prayer and fasting journey with the Lord? Have you tried it but feel disillusioned and frustrated with previous experiences?
Please join us in March for a time of growing in our journey with the Lord. We would like to journey with you as you embark on a prayer and fasting week from Sun 24th to Sun 31st March.
Biblical fasting is refraining from food for a spiritual purpose. Fasting has always been a normal part of a relationship with God and references to it are found throughout the bible. Fasting is also setting time aside and allowing God to speak into your life.
In Matthew 6, Jesus provided the pattern by which each of us is to live as a child of God. That pattern addressed three specific duties of a Christian: giving, praying and fasting. Jesus said:
Verse 2 “When you give…”
Verse 5 “When you pray…”
Verse 16 “When you fast…”
BEFORE THE FASTING WEEK
Please join us at 12pm on Sun 3rd Mar in the upstairs prayer room for a “Tell Me More” session(15min). We will briefly explain what biblical fasting is and isn’t and also talk about the initiative to journey with you at the end of March on a week of prayer and fasting. You can then prayerfully decide to opt in to this and only the co-ordinator will know who is participating. During the week of prayer and fasting, you will receive daily tips, guidelines and encouragement.
If for medical purposes you are unable to abstain from food, please still join us as we can explore other ways for you to take part.
