Prayer

If you sense God has more for your life, 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting is a great place to start. As you practice seeking him first, he’ll move on your behalf like never before. On Monday, January 6th we will meet at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium at our Newark location for the kick-off, where we will have a night of prayer and worship together. Following the kick-off, join us every morning, January 7-26! Even if you are new to your faith or the act of praying, join us. We’ll create a welcoming environment where you can feel comfortable.

Reading the Bible

We learn and grow through reading the Bible. God has breathed his life into the very words on each page, and we will experience the truths he has for us when we devote time to reading them. This January, we’ll be reading The Journey’s 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting Devotional together. It’s easy to access on your phone or computer! Fill out the form below and you will receive a daily devotional each evening by email so you can practice your slot and spot in the evening or the morning in preparation for prayer together.

Fasting

As part of 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting, we encourage you to find some way to fast. The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting focuses on making a commitment to God to abstain from anything that may cause a distraction (often it is food and beverage) for a certain period of time to allow you to deepen your connection with God.

Here are three ways you may choose to participate in fasting:

 

Absolute Fast: This “absolute” fast is denying any kind of food and beverage (except water) for a specific period of time. This can range from a few hours to a full 24-hour fast to multi-day or even weeks of abstaining from food and drink. This fast helps us to focus completely on God, the people around us, and allows God space to work in our lives in a greater way.

 

Partial Fast: A Daniel Fast is a partial fast that includes eliminating specific foods and beverages from your diet and focusing on eating “pure” foods like Daniel did (found in Daniel 10:3). This type of fast usually includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and legumes. You can utilize some of these resources: Daniel Fast recipes, food list, The Complete Guide to a Daniel Fast.

 

Activity Fast: During this type of fast, you choose to fast from an activity that might get in the way of your relationship with God and spending personal time with him in prayer.  Some activity examples may include social media, television, texting, playing video games, etc.
