21 days of PRAYER:

Here at The Fountain Church we have made it a priority to seek God first in prayer, trusting in His power alone to create a lasting impact in our lives, our church and our world.

If you sense that God has more for your life, 21 Days of Prayer is a great place to start believing Him for all that He has for you. At the Tuesday prayer services, you will put seeking God first into practice, and when you do this, He will start working on your behalf like never before. You will see a difference in your relationships, your work, your family and every area of your life. It is then that you will best be able to spread His love to others.

Will you join us daily in prayer for our nation, our cities, our families, our church and our new church building for the next 21 days? As we seek the Lord in prayer together let’s expect more, our God is mighty and able to do more than we could even think or imagine.

FASTING:

The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives. Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.


TYPES OF FASTS:

COMPLETE FAST:

This fast calls for drinking only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

SELECTIVE FAST:

This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, or bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.

PARTIAL FAST:

This fast is sometimes called the Jewish Fast and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

MEDIA FAST:

This fast is common for those who do not have much experience fasting food, who have health issues that prevent them from fasting food, or who wish to refocus certain areas of their life that are out of balance. For instance, someone might select to abstain from using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast, and then choose to carefully bring that element back into their life in an orderly fashion at the conclusion of the fast.
