Prayer & Fasting Roadmap
For Limited 24-Hour Fast
We invite you to join us for a 24-hour time of prayer and fasting…from breakfast to breakfast. We suggest breaking your day into multiple segments. The aim is to refocus your attention on God; to prioritize feeding your soul over feeding your body; to draw spiritual nourishment from God, who is the ultimate sustainer of life.
During the fast you will limit your intake of food. You may prefer to completely abstain from all food. If so, it is recommended you still drink liquids such as water and/or juice. (Diabetics or those with physical limitations should take their conditions into consideration when fasting.)
Before you begin, consider the next day’s readings and how you’ll spend your time during the fast. This will help you make the most of your time. Consider using a notebook to journal any insights.
Night Before You Fast
Begin by reviewing the Time Guide and Prayer Wheel graphics.
Use the Time Guide to help you manage your time.
The Prayer Wheel will help you visualize the scriptures we will read, moving from the outside of the wheel at the start to the inner rings throughout the day. Read Matthew 6:16-18; Mark 1:35; Luke 5:16
