A holy habit 

Fasting is a discipline that should be a holy habit. 

Scripture Reading

Matthew 9 

Key passages

Matthew 9:14-15 — “Then John’s disciples came and asked him, ‘How is it that we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?’ “Jesus answered, ‘How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast.’” 

Fasting thought

“For the serious-minded follower of Jesus, fasting is a consistent habit. In a world filled with indulgences, we need, on a routine basis, to consciously lay aside our freedoms in Christ for the purpose of seeking the face of God, intimacy with the Son of God and fullness of the Holy Spirit. - Gary Rohrmayer  


Father in heaven, thank you for all you have done in my life over the past 21 days. My heart longs for you. My soul craves your presence. I need you. I worship you. I love you. Help me to make fasting a habit in my life. In the precious name of Jesus I pray. Amen. 

Prayer & Fasting Journal

We encourage you to keep a journal to document your thoughts and prayers as God moves during this time of prayer and fasting. You can journal on your smart phone, on paper, or anywhere that will be easily accessed by you and work well as you journey through these 21 days.
