How you can participate…
Set Aside Time For Fasting*:
Fast from solid foods one or more days, or part of a day each week.
Limit (or perhaps eliminate) your indulgence in one or more of your usual pleasure practices (TV, & movies, sports, or your favorite hobby).
Consider doing the “Daniel Fast.”
Optional “foods” to eliminate: coffee/teas, candies, sweets, sodas, etc.
* Please note: If you are under a physician’s care, consult with him/her before fasting.
Suggested Prayer Agenda:
The following prayer agenda will make both private and group prayer times more meaningful and effective.
Spend some time seeking the Lord privately and/or with other believers through personal prayer, reading God’s Word or attending and participating in prayer meetings.
Giving God praise and thanks for who He is and for some of the specific ways He has blessed you and others recently.
Pray for personal and congregational renewal. Pray about your relationship with God and other believers.
Pray for those in authority; our elders, pastors, staff and leaders in their areas of responsibility. Pray also for our elected local, state and national leaders.
Pray for the salvation of not-yet-believers, including family members, friends, neighbors and the world. Pray also by categories (e.g. addicts, teens, single parents, gangs, business people, college students).
