Details about the church-wide fast January 1-3

Grace Family,

This year has been a phenomenal year at Grace. We’ve seen lives transformed for Christ as the Holy Spirit has moved. Several years ago, as a step of obedience, we began fasting at the beginning of each year to seek God’s hand… and many of you are the result! Fasting may be a new and unfamiliar concept for many of you. Don’t worry, I was in the same boat several years ago, but after having seen God’s response to His people praying and fasting, I’ll never go back! Several have asked me, “What do I do?”, “do I not eat at all?”, or “do I have to do food?” … and these are GREAT questions.

Many members of Grace heard God speak prophetic vision to them during last year’s fast… and they’ll never be the same! If you are new to the spiritual discipline of fasting, you won’t regret setting aside the time to seek God in this special way. Many at Grace will do a water fast for these 3 days. Some will do other forms of fasting (partial fast, Daniel fast, entertainment fast, etc.). You can learn more about fasting in the Fasting document on our website. You can also do a deeper dive by reading the book “God’s Chosen Fast” by Arthur Wallace. However you choose to participate, it is important that we do this in unity. God’s blessing rests in places of oneness and unity with His people.

During these three days of fasting, here are the areas I am asking the church to focus on during their times of seeking God. I’ll be sending emails each day explaining a little more about one each.

Day 1Contemplation

Day 2Consecration
