fastingStarts: Monday, January 12th

Ends: Sunday, February 1st

Purpose:

The beginning of the year is always a good time to establish new goals that improve our lives in spiritual, physical and emotional areas. Every year at New Day Church we renew our commitments with God and loved ones with a 21-day fast that helps us refocus our purposes. Like Daniel and his friends fasted asking God for help and direction, we fast to dedicate our efforts to reach our goals this new year. This type of fast eliminates not so healthy foods and other delicacies and permits only what is necessary to nourish our bodies and sustain them properly.

We will be united in prayer for 21 days asking God for:

  1. a revival that results in the salvation of family members & friends.
  2. us to become a model church.
  3. direction as we seek and purchase a temple
