Every year as a church community, we come together to fast and pray for 21 days in order to seek God for the new year! Our hope for you is that you would experience God in a new and fresh way.

This 21-day period of fasting and prayer is designed to prioritise our relationship with God and focus on His truths. As a community, we will unify and set aside time to pray, fast and wait on God to recalibrate our thoughts and restore our hope.

The power of prayer deepens our dependence on God and sharpens our faith. When we pray, we choose to put everything in God’s hands knowing that His hand will show up in every aspect of our lives and in those around us. 

The act of prayer is what creates our intimacy with God. We can practice the spiritual habit of prayer, knowing that our requests go to a God who hears us and who invites us to be intimately involved in His plan. For this reason, we pray in confidence, knowing that our prayers are powerful and can bring about change in any circumstance. 

We all can enter prayer with a posture of trust, openness, and faith, believing that God can do far more than we could even ask or imagine. It’s not about our circumstance, it’s about our heart stance.

Fasting is simply abstaining from something in order to focus our attention and efforts towards God. Fasting is about laying down what we want, to ask God what He desires for our lives.

Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives. Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.

There are several types of fasting available to choose from. A majority of our church observes the Daniel Fast for 21 days. The one you choose is between you and God. He will honour your best sacrifice. Please remember that every person is different and you should only choose what is a healthy and safe choice for you.
