Prayer and Fasting as Part of Our Rhythm of Life


On the first Thursday of every month, we will be fasting and praying together for our church and community. Each month will have a different focus area, so stay connected with us on this page, newsletter and social media (Facebook / Instagram) to learn more. We look forward to purposefully turning our faces toward God each month as we fast and pray together as a church.

As we're coming to the end of the term, it will be great to pray for these two areas:

  • Prayer for Rest and Renewal
    Pray for those who have been serving faithfully and working hard, that God will give them rest. And pray for all who are weary and burdened that God will release peace into their lives and mind.
      Matthew 11:28

  • Prayer for Hope, Peace and Joy
    Pray that our hearts are filled with hope, peace, and joy during this Christmas season as we express our gratitude to God. And pray for opportunities to share God’s grace and goodness with others.
      Romans 15:13
Please mark the following dates in your diary:

Getting Ready to Fast

These are some great reflections around why prayer and fasting is so profound and powerful. By nature, every one of us is inclined to take the path of least resistance. We want to avoid pain at all costs. We love shortcuts. We tend to avoid disciplines, however God says when we do fast and pray he will reward us.

  • Decide what you are going to fast from. Food, technology, entertainment or something else.
  • Block out a specific time that you will abstain from it so you can pray and seek God.
  • Be consistent. Stay with it. Stick to it.
  • Set a specific period of time.
  • Set a specific objective. What will you like to focus on in prayer during that time.
  • Prepare yourself spiritually. Take time to read the word. Worship. Journal.
