21 Days of Prayer and Fasting
Growing Together through Prayer and Fasting
We encourage everyone who calls Branches home to participate in 21 Days of Prayer + Fasting with us:
Monday, January 10th – Monday, January 31st
This is a time of seeking and listening for where God is engaging us as individuals and Branches as a community on His mission.
We are joining the Foursquare denomination in prayer focus for these 21 Days by following a prayer and devotional guide for each day. To conclude our time of prayer and fasting, we will join together on Monday, January 31 at 7pm for a night of prayer and worship. We will be given an opportunity to share our stories and encourage one another in faith.
We hope that you will participate with us in seeking Jesus for 2022!!
Be encouraged to pray with more intention during all the 21 Days of Fasting and Prayer.
You can either download a digital copy or pick up a printed copy at Branches this Sunday.
In this guide you will have a daily scripture, reflection questions, and a quick family moments thought.
In this guide the daily scripture is available and the more ways to incorporate meaning to the scripture through activity and conversation.
Each week we are choosing a different fasting option
Give up food for a day, a type of food (sugar, gluten, dairy, alcohol, etc,) or a meal a day. Let the rumble in your stomach remind you of your hunger for righteousness. Let it remind you that Jesus is the Bread of Life.
Week 2—Social Media
Put down your phone and pick up your Bible. Let go of everything Instagram is saying and listen to what God is saying through his Word.
This is a week of skipping your nightly Netflix. Skip playing tetris, solitaire, video games, movies, the news and the usual things we do to decompress or entertain. Instead, focus on using the time to love and serve those around us.
