THE BELONGING CO
7 days of prayer + fasting with The Belonging Co
September 8 – 14, 2021
Get into the prayer and fasting closet, hear what God has to say, and then obey His word.
HOW TO PREPARE.
Biblical fasting is refraining from food for a spiritual purpose.
If you’ve never fasted before, we’ve put together some helpful resources to get you started.
“Fasting, praying, and feeding on the Word of God puts that sword in your hand and positions you to discern the difference between your thoughts and God’s thoughts.” Jentezen Franklin
Messages from Pastor Alex and Pastor Paul about the power of prayer and fasting.
Fasting Brings Focus // Alex Seeley
Slow To Fast // Paul Bergin
“Fasting: Opening the door to a deeper, more intimate, more powerful relationship with God”
by Jentezen Franklin.
Ask God what He would have you refrain from and focus on during this time. There is no better Person than the Lord to tell you what to deny in order to gain more of His presence in your life.
Consult your doctor before you start your fast, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or have any health conditions where abstaining from food for a period of time could put you at risk.
Choose what type of fast you will do and for how long. Whether you decide to do a partial fast, a complete fast, or a combination, it’s your heart that matters. “If it means something to you, it will mean something to God. If it doesn’t mean anything to you, it won’t mean anything to God.” (Jentezen Franklin)

AFTER THE FAST.
Share how God moved in your life during the fast with a friend, on social media, or by submitting a video on our website. Declare the goodness of God to those around you!
Whatever God revealed to you during your fast, go do it!
DO IT AGAIN.
Make fasting part of your regular routine and not just twice a year with our church.
