Focus on Fasting

In His famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus assumed his followers would be known for three foundational disciplines: prayer, giving, and fasting. While most of us are probably familiar with the first two, we may have never even considered the last one. Fasting is foreign to many of us and may even be intimidating for a few of us.

That is why our discipline focus is fasting during this season of Every Thursday, the discipline focus for the day will be fasting from one meal to focus on prayer. By the end of this session, we will encourage everyone to do a full 24-hour fast as they are able. We know God is going to use this focused time on fasting, not as a way to earn anything from God, but as a way to focus our attention on the daily bread only He can give.
