21 Days of Prayer and Fasting

January 9 - 29 6:00 am  |  Sent Church Plano – Seminar A

Sent Church, Spring Creek Parkway, Plano, TX, USA

As we begin a new year, Sent Church sets aside 21 days to focus on prayer and fasting. This time allows us to start the year seeking God’s direction for our personal lives and for Sent Church. There are a few ways you can join in:

  • Choose a personal fast.
    More information below.
  • Spend more time in intentional, focused prayer each day.
    We’ll help you with a daily prayer focus.
  • Join us for prayer and worship every morning (Mon-Sat) at 6:00 am in Seminar A.
    There’s power in starting your day gathering for prayer.

What’s the Deal with Fasting?

Fasting is one of the Holy Spirit’s tools for helping us to experience God’s transforming grace in our lives. This spiritual practice is a gift from God meant to grow us and draw us into a deepening relationship with God. In preparation for this special time with God each month, we encourage you to examine your heart through prayer and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any areas of sin. As you enter this time of heightened spiritual devotion, be aware that Satan will do everything he can to pull you away from your prayer and Bible reading time. When you feel the enemy trying to discourage you, immediately go to God in prayer and ask God to strengthen your resolve in the face of difficulties and temptations.

Recommended Types of Fasts:

Regular Fast – Traditionally, a regular fast means refraining from eating all food. Most people still drink water or juice during a regular fast. Use your meal times as a focused time for prayer and serving others.

Partial Fast – This type of fast generally refers to omitting a specific meal from your diet or refraining from certain types of foods.

Daniel Fast – Eat no meat, no sweets, and no bread. Drink water and juice, and eat fruits and vegetables.

Media Fast – Abstain from all social media, TV, Internet, and screen time (except for work and homework).
