The River 10 Day Church Fast
From Friday September 17 – Sunday September 26 this year, we’re inviting everyone in The River to join us for a 10 day fast. 2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us that ‘if my people, who are called by name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land’.
Fasting isn’t about trying to twist God’s arm to do something, it’s about deliberately setting aside other things that take our time and attention, so that we can focus on God. It prepares our heart to hear from Him better, and prepares our lives for Him to move.
So how can you join in? There’s lots of ways you can fast – and remember it’s all about finding those things that have a tendency to distract us from God – and choosing for a period of time to put them to one side to focus in on Him.
You can do a food fast, an entertainment fast, a social media fast, a hobby fast, a coffee & energy drinks fast, a 1 Corinthians 7:5 fast (look it up), a chocolate & sweets fast – there’s so many different ways that you can be a part of it.
You can choose to fast something for the whole 10 days or even for just part of the day each day. What’s that one thing that you could put to one side for 10 days that would help you connect with God?
We really believe this will be a significant time for us as a church, and invite you to register here on this page so that we can email you prayer points, fasting tips and encouragement for each day of the fast and keep you connected with what’s happening.
