What is prayer?
God started a conversation with His people (us) with His Word. Prayer is our response to Him. And here’s the awesome part, He wants to hear from us. He delights in us.
What is fasting?
Removing things from our lives for a time to pursue intimate fellowship with God. Fasting can be an expression of finding our greatest pleasure and enjoyment in life from God. Food, or whatever we fast from, has a mastery over our lives. Fasting says, "I long to be satisfied in God alone."
Why do we do this together as a church?
A season of focused prayer and fasting puts our church body on the same trajectory. Imagine the power of thousands of people speaking to our Heavenly Father at the same time about the same thing.
16 “And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 17 But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
21 Days of Prayer
