God is always inviting us into more with Him. He wants to deepen our fellowship with Him and break strongholds in our lives! Join us for a 12-day fast where we’ll invite exactly this into our lives through fasting, repentance, and inner healing prayer. As our Prayer Team has prayed about creating this opportunity, the Lord led us to a key passage from David’s story in 2 Samuel. As David battles the Philistines and wins (a battle between the flesh and the Spirit) he declares,
The Eternal has broken through my enemies in front of me like water bursting through a dam. That is why the place was named Baal-perazim, meaning “the Lord who bursts through.”
2 Samuel 5:20
As you study, fast, and pray with us, we believe God will burst forth in you and will bring great healing to your heart and mind. The fast will be for twelve days, to be concluded with a one-day twelve-hour retreat where we trust that God will do mighty things in you. You only need to be willing to surrender and open yourself to what the Lord wants to do in and through you.
Though we desire for everyone to jump at this chance, we instead ask that you pray and ask the Lord if you are meant to participate with a small group through this 12-day experience. We are asking that whoever joins us will be able to participate in the entire 12 days (more info on this piece below) and be able to come for the entire 12-hour retreat filled with worship, quiet time, discussion, prayer, and, we hope, break-through.
We will help each of you pray through the appropriate fast that the Lord is calling you into and have scripture and prayer points for each day throughout this journey… so don’t feel like it’s too daunting to try! Everyone is capable of letting go of food for a period of time, though it might look a little different for each person. And don’t worry all this will be covered in an informational meeting before we all begin together.
