21 Days of Prayer & Fasting
January 11th – January 31st
21 Days of Prayer & Fasting
We are praying and fasting for the purpose of allowing the Holy Spirit to work in and on our lives cutting away what needs to be removed and birthing in us freshly what He desires to do. Download a prayer card today or pick one up at your campus to help make the most of these 21 Days as we draw closer to God. We also have Kid Prayer Guides available next week to help kids learn how to pray.
Participating is easy, scroll to see how you can jump in!

We are so proud of everyone who has been a part of 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting! As the 21 Days are coming to a close let Pastor Spencer encourage & pray for you.
Choose Something to Fast
Fasting, while highly spiritual, is something that is also highly practical. The concept of fasting is abstaining from something for the purpose of giving your time and attention to focus on God. There are a variety of things and ways you can choose to fast. You can choose to fast a certain meal or type of food, social media and or entertainment, a hobby or activity, or a combination of these things. The purpose is that you choose something meaningful that you are able to replace with spending time with God in prayer and in the Word.
Fasting for spiritual purposes must include prayer. If you have never prayed before or want to improve your prayer life, 21 Days of Prayer is a great place to start. Prayer is not complicated it is simply talking to God and opening your heart to hear God talk to you. Whether you are spending 5 minutes or 5 hours in prayer, the point is that you are spending time praying. In order to help you focus your prayer and unify our hearts as a church, we have provided both a prayer pathway, as well as prayer points on the card below.
Read & Respond
One of the primary ways we believe God wants to speak to you is through the Bible, the living breathing Word of God. While it can be easy for some to become overwhelmed with the thought of hearing from God through the scripture, by using the LIFE JOURNAL, we believe anyone can do it. Simply order a Life Journal or download the reading plan from Lakeshorecf.com, then spend time reading the designated chapters in one of the reading plans you choose. Lastly, respond to God through capturing what He is saying to you through writing it in your journal.
