A Day of Prayer & Fasting - 7/7/11
I was recently listening to a sermon by Pastor Craig Groeschel where he talked about the importance of fasting and different reasons for fasting. He pointed out that Jesus didn’t say “if you fast”, He said “WHEN you fast”. That means that as followers of Christ fasting should be a part of our lives.
I’m so busy with ministry, family, and everything else that comes along in life that often I feel like I’m going in 10 different directions at 300 miles per hour. I feel convicted and led to fast. I am planning on fasting from food, social media, media, and email and invite you to join me. Let’s do it on Thursday, 7/7/11…an easy date to remember.
I don’t know what you’ll want to focus on during your fast, but I will be focusing on revival. I am praying for revival not only in our country, but our city (Kansas City). However, I’m not only praying for revival in our city, but I’m praying that revival will take place in my life. I am praying for a spiritual hunger and desperation in my life. I want God to be the center of my life, not ministry; not the stuff I do.
Will you join me on July 7th? You can work it out with God on what He wants you to fast from. It may be food. It may be caffeine. It may be your computer. I don’t know, but I want to invite you to take the challenge and expect a unique encounter with God.
Let me know if you’ll be joining me by RSVP-ing on this Facebook Event page I’ve created. If you don’t have a Facebook account, simply leave a comment here and let me know. Let’s do this together!
Feel free to journal throughout the day and share, on the Facebook Event wall, your thoughts and experiences.
