Ladies! I’m organizing a 21-Day group fast for the women in Alaska and I am super excited about it! Let’s start the year off right and join together in seeking God by humbling ourselves together before Him!
Any friends from other states are welcome to join!
Details for the Fast:
- It’s scheduled for January 11-31. If you wish to participate, simply shoot me an email at cudmore.jen @gmail.com or message me on Facebook. I’ll create a Facebook Group specific for this fast and post scriptures/quotes to help us stay motivated and connected.
- I recommend a partial fast, since most of us are busy moms and need to keep up our strength. There are a few different types of fasts, which I have explained in more detail on the ACWM blog. For this group effort, you choose what you want to give up, whether it’s sugar, caffeine, etc. Or you can try sticking with fruits and veggies only, or a skipping a meal or two each day. We recommend that you seek the Lord for direction before you decide what sacrifice to make.
- Fasting must be accompanied with prayer and praise, so be sure to carve out some time every day to focus on God and study His Word!
- Be sure to write down specifically what you’re bringing before the Lord. It could be a request for wisdom, perhaps deliverance from a stubborn stronghold, help in the midst of a tough storm, or simply to seek His will for 2017. There are many reasons to fast, as I mentioned in a post the other day. My only request is that you also commit to interceding for your city and state.
And there are many benefits too! If you haven’t had a chance to review any of my posts on fasting, be sure to check them out. This is a topic that isn’t discussed in many churches these days, so I have been sharing everything I’ve learned about fasting on the ACWM blog. I’m no expert; I just share what I’m discovering as I study and practice this discipline.
Kickoff Meeting: Let’s get together for fellowship and prayer before we get started! I’ve scheduled a meeting on Tuesday, January 10th from 7pm-8:30pm. We’ll be meeting at someone’s home, so when you contact me about joining the fast, I will send you the address.
Warning: The enemy doesn’t like it when we commit to fasting because He knows how God will move on behalf of His children. Be alert for trouble, and trust God to get you through it when it comes!
Be sure to check out all the blog posts we’ve put together!
