21 DAYS OF PRAYER AND FASTING

Let us prepare to begin 2023 in a season of prayer and fasting; to draw near to God, to eliminate opposition to His will and way, and to ask Him for spiritual breakthrough. We are encouraged to pray and fast for 21 days, from January 11th through 31st. As we prepare for our 21 days of prayer and fasting let us pray that God would show us "why" He desires for us to fast; preparing us spiritually. And let us pray that God would show us “how” He desires for us to fast; preparing us physically.
