Fasting: It’s Not Just a Catholic Thing!
This past Sunday at MOMENTUM I challenged our Eagle Pointe core/family/leaders to get serious about being used by God. I challenged us all to get serious about sacrificing financially, praying like crazy, & working our tails off for the cause of Christ! And I also challenged us all “to fast” & pray for God to show up & do what only He can do – to align our hearts with His heart. Because when we Fast & pray God shows up & does the supernatural. I don’t know about you – but that’s what I want to see & be a part of.
Easter Sunday is the greatest opportunity of the year to invite people to church. Even non-churchgoers feel a sense of that’s just what you do on Easter Sunday. And studies show that 3 out of 4 people would be willing to come check out a church on Easter Sunday if personally invited. To that end – I’ve challenged our entire church to Fast & pray 2 days this week & 2 days next week. You pick 1 of the days that works with your schedule & then we all Fast together on Fridays. Basically, we want to unleash the power of God through prayer & fasting – & then do “whatever it takes” to pack our church full of people on Easter Sunday who need to hear about Jesus!
However, there are A LOT of people who are confused about or are just unfamiliar with this Biblical practice of fasting. So, here is a link to a blog posting I did last year on Fasting: “Fasting = Getting Serious About Prayer” I encourage you to read this & share it with others.
