brings together a Mighty Army of Warriors, Prayer Warriors. We cannot do
this alone. Join with us to deploy one of the greatest weapons to defeat
Satan and his army, Prayer & Fasting!!!
January - February Prayer & Fasting
Every new year in January and February
we will do a 21, 30, or 40 day fast. We will fast for God's direction
in the new year. We know that during a fast God empowers us for the work He
has called us to. It is during these fasts God brings new revelations,
dreams, visions, prophetic songs, clarity, confirmations, certainty of His
calling, and a new hope He is always with us!
September Prayer & Fasting
1. A time of prayer, self-examination, and repentance.
2. A time to praise Yeshua for the atonement of our sins.
3. A time to express our praise to God for the many blessings in our lives.
4. A time to look ahead to our place, purpose, and mission in God's divine order.
10 days to see God's prophetic word
revealed in dreams, visions, and His Word.
January - February Fast
The schedule each year changes depending on the direction God gives for a 21, 30, or 40 day fast.
September 10 Day Fast
Beginning our fast on Rosh Hashanah which falls on a Wednesday night or Sunday night, we will continue for the 10 days concluding at the end of Yom Kippur which falls on a Saturday afternoon or Wednesday afternoon.
In January - February fast we will select from the type of fasts listed below as God impresses on our hearts.
In September, we do not follow the fasts custom to traditional Jewish fasts during these high holy days. You may choose from some of the following types of spiritual fasts listed below if you like:
1. Absolute fast- drinking only
water. Not recommended for those with medical concerns. Drink filtered or
bottled water with fresh squeeze of lemon wedge to strengthen your liver
as your body detoxifies.
Be prepared when starting a food type of fast, that you will have periods of headaches for the first 3 days, as your body will be detoxifying. Be sure to drink lots of water during your fast. If following the Absolute or Liquid Fast, you will feel hungry the first 3 days, then hunger will subside as your body feeds off your bodies' reserves.
following any of the above spiritual fasts, especially the fasts with
water or liquid only, take “Bentonite Detox”- a liquefied
clay supplement that will help absorb the toxins in your body and relieve
the headaches as your body detoxifies.
"Pro-biotic capsules" will aid in proper digestion to cleanse your digestive system. We use 'ParaZyme,' but any digestive enzyme complex will work. Fasting helps rejuvenate your health, cleansing the body of toxins.
**BREAK YOUR FAST SLOWLY WITH SMALL
LIGHT PORTIONED FOODS AND LIQUIDS.
Jewish high holy day-Rosh Hashanah
[lit. "Head of the Year"] , the Jewish New Year, also called the Feast of
Trumpets, commemorates the anniversary of the day that Adam was created (Day
Six), the first day of Tishrei, 5769 years ago on the Hebrew calendar. Rosh
Hashanah occurs during our Gregorian calendar month of September. It
marks the beginning of a 10 day period of prayer, self-examination, and
repentance. We express thanks for our blessings. As Christians, we don't see
this as a day of Judgment for all creation, but as a celebration of the
anniversary of Man's creation. We take this time to reflect what we did this
past year and look ahead to our place, purpose, and mission in God's divine
order, realizing we are accountable to our Creator, God.
Jewish high holy day-The name “Yom Kippur” means “Day of Atonement,” and that pretty much explains what the holiday is. It is a day set aside to “afflict the soul,” to atone for the sins of the past year.
For believers in Yeshua, the observance of Yom Kippur can hold special significance. The repentance started at Rosh Hashanah comes to a culmination with atonement ten days later.
Blessed be the Lord God, who has secured our salvation in Yeshua the Messiah! That is what Yom Kippur is all about for those who call on his name.
