5 Days of Prayer & Fasting
THE BEST WAY TO PREPARE FOR RETREAT
We are gathering around the faithful expectation that God will come down and meet us upon mountain for this year's retreat weekend. But, a working faith is a faith that works to apply itself to accessing, believing, and persisting in the promises of God. In these 5 days leading to the retreat weekend, anyone who is willing and especially those attending the retreat are invited to join our leadership team in purposing to pray & seek God for the weekend.
WHAT CAN WE EAT?
This will be a natural fast, where we will restrict ourselves to fruits, vegetables, nuts, and liquids. The purpose of this, is to act as a sacrifice and a reminder whenever we feel the urge to eat what we would normally crave, to instead grow our spiritual appetite in prayer. The goal is not to starve ourselves, but to allow the inconveniences to restrictions over the food we would normally eat act as a reminder to pray.

WHY THIS FAST IS POWERFUL
(I believe the calling of God to many of us is to go deeper into His presence and all He has for us. There are not many better ways than to do this than to follow in the footsteps of Jesus by praying & fasting. There is something special found in this combination of seeking & sacrifice that sanctifies, strengthens, and sets us up for great encounters with Himself.
Lets do this church family! - Josh)
