5 Days of Prayer and Fasting
April 3 - 7
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, April 3 through Friday, April 7.
During this time, we encourage you to do a dietary fast, and here are a couple of ways you could do that:
- 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, here is what we encourage you to pray for. Of course, you can add anything else to this list.
- For the opportunity to practically love someone like Jesus once a day this week
- For a desire for holiness and living a life that honors God
- For the salvation of one person in your life / invite to Easter
- For one personal need or desire you have
- Expressing to the Lord one thing you are thankful for
