21 days of prayer
and fasting

At specific moments each year we intentionally set our focus on God and meditate on His promises.

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

Why Pray

The power of prayer deepens our dependence on Him 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. 

There are no levels to this. 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.

Why Fast

Fasting is the ancient practice of choosing to abstain from food for a certain period of time. It is a spiritual discipline, the purpose of which is training to become more like Jesus. The motivation of our fasting is to draw closer to the heart of God. Fasting is a Christian discipline to break the power of the flesh in our life – our desires, sins, and cravings – and to feed on the Holy Spirit.
 
“Fasting helps us to express, to deepen, and to confirm the resolution that we are ready to sacrifice anything, even ourselves, to attain the Kingdom of God.” - Scot McKnight. 

In summary, fasting is not about getting from God but it is about getting to God. There are different types of fasting, and we recommend prayerfully considering which practice is best for you at this time.
