21 Nights of Fasting & Prayer
The beginning of the new year is the best time in the rhythm of life to turn our hearts from distractions and to focus intensely on seeking God. Starting Monday, January 13, we’re planning to set aside 21 Nights for Fasting & Prayer to draw near to God, put Him first in our lives, and ask God for specific breakthroughs.
We invite you to join us on JANUARY 13th -- FEBURARY 2nd | MONDAY - SATURDAY 7:00PM - 9:00PM for an evening of prayer and worship led by Capstone Kinesis
ILFORD CAMPUS: Capstone Church, 316 High Road, Ilford, IG11QW
WHY SHOULD I FAST?
• Do you desire to know God’s will and direction for your life?
• Are you in need of a miracle or breakthrough?
• Do you have a dream inside you that only God can make possible?
• Are you in need of a fresh touch from God in your life?
• Do you want a deeper, more intimate and powerful relationship with the Lord?
• Are you ready to have greater sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s voice?
• Do you need to break free from bondages that have been holding you captive?
• Do you have a friend or loved one that needs Jesus?
• Do you sense that God has more for your life?
Fasting, simply stated, is about eliminating distractions in order to draw nearer to God. Fasting gets us focused on God and renews us from the inside out. The most important part of prayer and fasting is your time with God. Our entire church family will join together in united prayer and fasting for 21 days. Below are some fasts that can be done. Your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your own body and to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do. Remember, it is the attitude of a heart sincerely seeking Him to which God responds with a blessing (Isaiah 58).
Drinking only liquids, typically water, with juice as an option.
Removing meat, sweets and alcohol from your diet (see Daniel 1:8).
Sometimes called a Jewish Fast, calls for abstaining from food for a specific part of each day. This might be from sunup to sundown, or 6 am to 3 pm, lunches, or something suitable for you
Abstaining from social media and all forms of electronic entertainment (movies, TV, video games, etc.). This is a wonderful fast for everyone! This is also a good fast to combine with one of the food fasts. It’s helpful to refocus areas of life that might be out of balance. When breaking the fast, carefully bring that element back into your life in an orderly fashion.
CAUTIONS FOR FASTING
The level at which a person engages in fasting should be determined by several factors including age, health, and God’s leading.
