Stand Firm: 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting to Start the New Year!
“Stand firm therefore, having belted your waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness.” (Ephesians 6:14 NASB)
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 Stand Firm.
Things are shaking around us, but we are part of a kingdom that cannot be shaken and we must remain rooted in God’s love and truth. It is time to stand firm in the promises of God and be steadfast in our devotion to Him. It is not time to shrink back—it is time to arise and shine!
Participating in the Fast
The fast will go from January 4th – January 24th. During this 21-day time, we are encouraging people to participate in the fast as the Lord leads, and make it a priority to join in on our prayer gatherings. There will be sign-up sheets at the information table to commit to specific days of fasting. You can also sign up, or get more information about the fast, by emailing Kimberly Murry at: firstname.lastname@example.org
