Prayer and Fasting provides a great opportunity to grow spiritually.
Each day, one question will be posted to help you reflect on your relationship with God. Take a moment to refect on the question, write down your answer in a journal, or discuss among others.
In what ways have I sensed God speaking into my life lately?
Every January Abundant Life begins the year with a 21-day consecration. Due to Covid -19 we have been away from our Sunday morning worship gatherings for 11 months. However, we still have a desire to seek God and pursue his purpose in our lives. The building may have been closed but the church is very much alive and active.
Our theme for this year is “Kingdom Living.” Our goal is to prioritize and live out God’s plan in every area of our lives. As we submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit we can expect life transformation from inside and out.
Fasting will bring us into a deeper, more intimate, and more powerful relationship with the Lord by helping us to develop discipline and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. By removing foods from our diet, it trains us to exert self-control over our physical selves so we can cultivate the discipline necessary for spiritual growth. Furthermore, as we cut out distractions and depend on God, our spirit becomes uncluttered by the things of this world and more sensitive to the Lord. Through fasting, we put ourselves in a position where we can gain a greater sense of purpose and focus individually and collectively. Our desire is that this fast will move everyone to a new level of faith and fruitfulness.
The observed fast begins on Sunday, January 10, 2021 at 8:00pm - Sunday, January 31, 2021 at 8:00pm.
If you are in poor health or have concerns about your physical ability to fast, please consult a physician before beginning. Your doctor can provide advice on how you can participate in this fast in a way that is healthy for you. Also, do not hesitate to contact your doctor during the fast if you are experiencing symptoms in need of medical attention.
Yes! On Monday through Friday we encourage everyone to join in on the weekday conference call prayer session from 6:00am – 6:30am. In addition, we invite you to attend Saturday morning prayer meetings from 9:00am to 10:00am. It is important that you sacrifice and make time to worship, pray and connect especially during times of fasting. Doing so enhances the effectiveness of the fast, making your sacrifice more fruitful. It is the fruit of the fast, the ways in which God teaches and transforms you, that boosts your faith and gives you power to accomplish God’s plan for your life.
