What are 40 days of Prayer and Fasting?

As a Church, we pray and fast together three times a year for 40 days. We set aside this time to focus, renew, and consecrate ourselves to the Lord. We don’t fast to receive, we fast to draw closer to Him and to hear Him more clearly. Fasting is simply abstaining from food. We recommend drinking plenty of water on a fast. Some will consecrate themselves additionally by abstaining from other forms of entertainment and activities to seek the Lord more fully. Whatever you do is good, the Lord will honor it! Please prayerfully consider how and when you will fast in this season.
