21 Day Fast: March 18 – April 7
WHAT IS FASTING?
Fasting is a concerted effort to give greater attention and affection to spiritual purposes through prayer and abstaining from food for a limited time. Fasting is a decision to take your eyes off the things of this world in order to focus more completely on God. Fasting is about wanting a deeper relationship with God. Pastor Rick is asking us to fast as a church for the 21 days leading up to Easter specifically to focus on prayer for attendance and salvations on Easter weekend.
HOW DO I FAST?
- Determine a specific kind of fast (i.e. the Daniel Fast) a particular kind of food or drink.
- Determine length of time – one meal a day, one day a week, etc.
- If physical health limits your ability to fast, choose to fast something else like internet, television, etc.
