Monthly Day of Prayer and Fasting
Every 3rd Wednesday of the Month
Prayer and fasting are key practices that help us grow closer to God and walk in a deeper since of unity of the Holy Spirit within the body of Christ. At Spirit Life Church, we encourage our members to participate in monthly corporate prayer and fasting, where we as a community to seek God's will on the 3rd Wednesday from 6am to 6pm. You will receive an email with the prayer focus for that day, however you are free to pray and seek the Lord in accordance to how the Holy Spirit directs.
You may want to take your normal breakfast time and pray and worship instead of eating. Or even taking your normal lunch time to praise and pray for some things the Lord puts on your heart.
“Whenever you fast, don’t be gloomy like the hypocrites. For they disfigure their faces so that their fasting is obvious to people. Truly I tell you, they have their reward. But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that your fasting isn’t obvious to others but to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. -Matthew 6:16-18-
During these times, we humble ourselves before the Lord, laying down our own desires of our body and seek the face of the Lord, meditate on His Word, giving Him thanksgiving for His promises, supplicate for our needs and the needs of others. Together, we build unity and strength in our faith as we seek God's guidance and wisdom in our personal lives and the Body of Christ.
