5 Days of Prayer and Fasting

July 11 - 15

Once a quarter at New City Church we take part in 5 days of prayer and fasting. This simple rhythm allows us to refocus our hearts and minds on Christ and encourages us to lean on Him for our needs. Our next 5 days of prayer and fasting will take place on Monday, July 11 through Friday, July 15.

During this time, we encourage you to do a dietary fast, and here are a couple of ways you could do that:

  • 5 day complete fast with only liquids
  • A couple of 24-hour fasts during the week
  • Fasting from a meal or two a day
  • Fasting from a dietary group for the week
  • Any combination of the above.

As you participate in the fast, we encourage you to pray over any personal needs or desires you may have. We also invite you to join our church body in praying:

  • For the opportunity and the courage to love someone how God loves them each day this week
  • For a desire for holiness and living a life that honors God
  • One person in your life who does not yet know Jesus
  • One personal need or desire you have
  • One thing you are thankful for
