What is fasting? Why are we fasting?

Fasting is a spiritual discipline that removes something from your life as an act of sacrifice in order to devote more time and attention to the Lord. 

This 10-Day Fast, Wednesday, July 22nd through Friday, July 31st, is meant as a spiritual reset.

 

In Matthew 17:20-21, it says "He told them, “Because of your lack of faith. I tell all of you with certainty, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you. But this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting.”

God is working through His ekklesia, He isn't constricted by the doors of one church body or one nation. The Holy Spirit is flowing through all those who love Him. In this fast, we are standing together as sons and daughters of the Most High to reset spiritually, make more room for Our Redeemer to flow in our lives, and to see His will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven.

 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

(2 Chronicles 7:14, NIV)
