Updated: Jan 9, 2023

Do you have a need for healing, a miracle, or direction, or simply want to grow closer to the Father? Then join us (Prayer Warriors) in this challenge of 21 days of prayer and liquid fasting. We are going before the Most High through Yahshua seeking his face for repentance, healing, deliverance from demonic forces, and strongholds. Join us as we pray for peace and reconciliation in our world and for family strength.



TAKE THE CHALLENGE FOR CHANGE!

We are helping you make your spiritual experience the best it can be during these 21 days of prayer and fasting. As 2023 begins, we want to start the year with 21 days set apart to seek the Father with all our hearts in prayer and fasting. We know that it’s in times like these when the Father reveals His heart and changes ours.


Challenge

Determine some of the things you need to fast and pray about in your personal life and in your family. Think also about some of the needs of your fellow members. Think about the world crisis. Commit yourself to prayer and fasting for one of these purposes.

We are not calling for trite prayers to make us feel better. We are calling for the kind of prayer that requires open eyes and open hearts. Honesty, confession, and listening. We, each one of us, must bring the pain, injustice, fear, and weight of our current moment to Yahshua and say: “help us (repentance).”

What is Fasting?

There are many types of fast and people fast for different purposes. A biblical fast can be defined as simply abstaining from food for spiritual purposes. It was encouraged and expected by Yeshua (Jesus) that believers would fast (Matt. 6:17-18, Matt. 9:15).

Many abstain from food, television, social media, and other forms of entertainment during this time and spend that time drawing closer to the Most High instead. What makes this time of fasting rich is by using the time to pray, read the Bible, and worship YHWH (the Most High). 17 ways to experience a personal revival.


Why are we fasting?

Many people have their own personal reasons why they are fasting. Collectively we are fasting for spiritual breakthroughs, healing, miracles, world repentance, Family unions as a whole, and forgiveness.


What type of fast? Liquid fast

Tips on Juice Fasting

  • Drinking fruit juice will decrease your hunger pains and give you some natural sugar energy. The taste and lift will motivate and strengthen you to continue.

  • The best juices are made from fresh watermelon, lemons, grapes, apples, cabbage, beets, carrots, celery, or leafy green vegetables. In cold weather, you may enjoy a warm vegetable broth.

  • Mix acidic juices (orange and tomato) with water for your stomach’s sake.

  • Avoid caffeinated drinks.

 

If fasting is not coupled with prayer and Bible reading it's simply a diet.

Make Your Commitment

Prepare Yourself Spiritually The very foundation of fasting and prayer is repentance. Unconfessed sin will hinder your prayers. Here are several things you can do to prepare your heart:

  • Ask God to help you make a comprehensive list of your sins.

  • Confess every sin that the Holy Spirit calls to your remembrance and accept God’s forgiveness (1 John 1:9).

  • Seek forgiveness from all whom you have offended, and forgive all who have hurt you (Mark 11:25; Luke 11:4; 17:3,4).

  • Make restitution as the Holy Spirit leads you.

  • Ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit according to His command in Ephesians 5:18 and His promise in 1 John 5:14,15.

  • Surrender your life fully to Jesus Christ as your Lord and Master; refuse to obey your worldly nature (Romans 12:1,2).

  • Meditate on the attributes of God, His love, sovereignty, power, wisdom, faithfulness, grace, compassion, and others (Psalm 48:9,10; 103:1-8, 11-13).

  • Begin your time of fasting and prayer with an expectant heart (Hebrews 11:6).

  • Do not underestimate spiritual opposition. Satan sometimes intensifies the natural battle between body and spirit (Galatians 5:16,17).

Praying and Fasting Can Be a Blessing to Our Families


Praying and fasting can help us strengthen ourselves and our families. Our prayers for guidance are made more powerful because fasting emphasizes the earnestness of our prayers. Furthermore, when we fast and pray, we turn away from the things of the world and recognize our dependence on the Lord. In this way, we open our hearts to learn and accept the Father's will for us and our families.


Prayer and fasting also increase our ability to use the priesthood effectively. Both we and others are blessed when we learn that the power of the priesthood can be used only when we live the principles of righteousness.
