This week is the home stretch in our 21 day fast! I always get excited about this week every year that we do this. Not because I get to eat a steak next Sunday afternoon (or sushi, or ziti, or COFFEE!!) but because it’s usually week three that the Church begins to feel the spiritual effects of the fast. Our spiritual senses are heightened, and our flesh nature is beginning to get the message that Jesus Is Lord and the flesh cannot rule us!
7AM prayer has been such a powerful addition to the fast this year. There was a great spirit in the House this morning as we prayed over the Church’s prayer requests. Prayer during a fast is so important…otherwise going without food is only a diet. Testimonies are already beginning to come in, although this fast will have a lasting effect on our lives throughout the whole year.
Let’s finish strong this week. Maybe you’ve meant to join us in prayer but haven’t been able to make it. There’s still time! Even if you “fell off the wagon” during the fast, get back on it and finish out the week with us. God ,is moving in our Church and in our lives. Don’t miss it!
