We believe in the power of prayer and fasting as a Church, and we take time every year to fast together in complete dedication to God, with faith that He wants to bring strength, breakthrough, and health into our lives. Fasting with prayer is a powerful spiritual discipline that the Lord has given us to destroy strongholds and bring about a significant spiritual awakening and harvest around the world. It is our way of demonstrating our need for God to intervene miraculously and declaring His power and our trust in Him.
We invite you to join our 5 Days of Prayer and Fasting from the 27th to the 31st of March, where you can choose how you fast, but we suggest a Daniel fast. The focus is on sacrificing our food to find space to focus more intentionally on interceding and connecting with our Heavenly Father through the Holy Spirit. Your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is essential to know your body and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.
We encourage you to follow us on social media for daily encouragement and updates, as well as reading along with us through our YouVersion Bible reading plans. Additionally, we would love for you to join our Prayer and Worship night on the 29th of March. We believe that as we come together in prayer and worship, we can experience the presence of God in a unique way and see Him move mightily in our lives and communities.
1. Renew Our Minds
That God will renew and refresh our minds by the power of the Holy Spirit. May we stay true to who God is calling us to be, knowing He sees the quiet and hidden places in our lives. May we experience freedom in Christ Jesus from every stronghold that is holding us back from experiencing the fullness of God.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
2. Strength and Courage
That no matter what we are facing, God will empower us with fresh courage and boldness today to walk in His ways and purpose. May God reveal His strength through
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
3. Unity in Christ Jesus
We pray for unity in the body of Christ, for we know that where two or more are gathered in His name, He is there with us. Keep us united in one accord: full of grace, love and compassion for one another. We pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ today.
“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.” 1 Corinthians 1:10
4. Seek and Save the Lost
We lift up our friends, family and beyond who don’t know Jesus yet; may their hearts be stirred to know their Creator and Saviour. Jesus came to seek and save the lost, and we believe Holy Spirit will empower us to boldly reach this lost world.
“Jesus said to him, ‘Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.’” Luke 19:9-10
