Prayer & Fasting
We will be praying & fasting all day on Wednesday, May 13th.
HOW TO BEGIN
Carving out a specific time to spend with God and having a physical list in front of you to pray over will motivate you to keep going when it seems impossible! Pray for what you are believing for personally, as well as the things we are believing for together as Wave Church. Let’s also be praying for all those affected by COVID-19, our frontline and essential workers, and the end of the virus to come quickly.
Be honest with God. Let Him know where you need help. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal areas of weakness. Invite Him to challenge and change you over the course of your fast. Watch as He expands your vision and strengthens your faith.
DECIDING WHAT TO FAST
Fasting is about giving something up for a time in order to seek God in a deeper way. It’s not about losing weight, it’s about gaining vision! The type of fast you choose is up to you. Whether you choose to follow biblical examples and give up food, or apply the same principle to other areas of life like TV or social media, we believe that as you remove distractions you will hear from God in a clearer way. Before making any drastic changes, please consult with your healthcare professional.
DECIDING HOW LONG
Fasting is not an obligation, it’s an opportunity to go deeper in our walk with God. Use wisdom and pray for guidance. We are committing to one day of prayer and fasting.
WHAT TO EXPECT
When you fast your body detoxifies, eliminating toxins from your system. This can cause mild discomfort such as headaches and irritability during withdrawal from caffeine and sugars. And naturally, you will have hunger pains. Limit your activity and exercise moderately. Take time to rest. Fasting brings about miraculous results. You are following Jesus’ example when you fast. Spend time listening to praise and worship. Pray as often as you can throughout the day. Get away from the normal distractions as much as possible and keep your heart and mind set on seeking God.
