Open Heavens: 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting to Start the New Year!
“When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.” (Matthew 3:16)
At the beginning of every year we have a special time set aside for prayer and fasting. We want to set the tone for the year and be intentional to focus on the Lord and what He is saying and doing. This year the theme of our 21-day fast is Open Heavens.
As a church family and apostolic hub we have stepped into a new season. And we are believing God for a new time of “open heavens” where the Holy Spirit is poured out, the Kingdom of God advances, and the promises of God are fulfilled. Let’s consecrate ourselves in this time in preparation for all the Lord has for the new year!
Participating in the Fast
The fast will go from January 3rd – January 23rd. During this 21-day time we are encouraging people to participate in the fast as the Lord leads and to make it a priority to join in on our prayer gatherings. There will be sign-up sheets at the welcome center where you can let us know that you are participating in the fast. (You will receive our weekly email updates when you sign up.) You can also sign up or get more information about the fast by emailing Melissa June at: email@example.com
