What is Fasting?
Fasting is a means of humbling ourselves before God, letting Him know that we are willing to exchange physical nothings for a spiritual feast! As a spiritual discipline, fasting is the act of abstaining from feeding the body in order to focus more fully on seeking God's face and feeding the spirit. This is a powerful discipline where God's Spirit is poured out upon us as we earnestly seek Him.
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land"
(2 Chronicles 7:14, NIV).
The Church is called to seek God’s face in all humility through the disciplines of fasting and prayer. Based on the principle of II Chronicles 7:14, the vision is that as the Church participate in these disciplines, they will be personally renewed and enjoy greater intimacy with our Lord, our communities will be restored, and, ultimately, the Great Commission will be fulfilled!
Through Fasting and Prayer the church will find healing, revival and a spiritual awakening.
