Yesterday our church began a 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting Initiative to conclude on Saturday February 16. The goal of this initiative is raise the temperature of spiritual life and overall seeking after God and to challenge our church to step out in faith in fresh, new ways. Therefore, the goal is not necessarily for us as individuals to be fasting for the 21 days, though some may choose to do so, but to have prayer and fasting to be happening by someone at all times during the 21 days.
It is pretty awesome to think that right now someone is praying and fasting on behalf of our church!
The people with real commitment will be fasting on this day, Super Bowl Sunday, the first major holiday of the year.
If this day is not filled, Valentine's Day, then the pastor's have to take it.
