21 Days prayer and fasting

Every year at Coast Community Church, we make it a priority to seek God first through a time of prayer and fasting. We do this collectively as a church every January. Together, we faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives, our church and our world. 

Starting on January 9th, Coast Community Church will be joining with other churches across the nation for a season of prayer and fasting; a spiritual journey that will set the tone for our effectiveness throughout the year. 

21 Days of Prayer and Fasting

Many of you have already established times of prayer and fasting in your life and have experienced the powerful impact it has had. As a church, we have seen increased salvations, breakthroughs and miracles as we chose to put God first at the onset of the year. This year, we are uniting with several other churches to pray and fast together, aligning ourselves with the power and favor of God. Just imagine what can happen if the Body of Christ unites behind this purpose that is so close to the heart of God. What a powerful way to start off the year. If you have a desire to pray and fast, this is a great way to do it.

The fast begins Sunday, January 9th and ends Saturday night, January 29th.

There are several different ways to fast. You can do a Complete fast... which is fasting all food and only taking in liquids for nourishment. You can do a Selective Fast such as a Daniel fast...This a fast that allows you to eat things like fruits and vegetables, but not sugar, or meat or bread.  For info on what a Daniel Fast is you can click here and here Note:  There is a lot of info on fasting on this site, so take some time and really look it over.  There is also a cookbook available for downloading online. Other types of fast might be things like fasting sugar and breads. You can do a Soul fast, which is fasting things that enter your spirit. Examples would be fasting television or social media, or any number of things.  We like to say, just make sure you feel it.  In other words, don't fast raisins, if you are like me and you hate raisins.  

Fasting is an amazing way to take the focus off ourselves, and putting it on God. For me, when I find myself craving something, I take a second to pray and remind myself that God has first place in my life.

Matthew 6:33 (NKJV)
33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
