40 Day Fast

Welcome to Church 180's 40 Day Fast!  Use this page to submit prayer requests and check back in to lift up other's requests. Scroll down for information on different types of fasts, recommended reading on fasting from Pastor Mike, daily prayer targets & a form to submit prayer requests. 

A note from Pastor Mike:

Thank you for joining with us for our 40 Day Fast! At the beginning of the year, we announced our 2022 year theme of "Breakthrough". Our key note scripture was taken from Isaiah 58:8-9

 

"Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am."

This scripture is surrounded within the context of God confirming to His people what He expects from them during fasting. The breakthrough of Isaiah 58:8 is preceded by true Godly fasting and it is with such a spirit that we begin our 40 days of fasting. We cannot expect a breakthrough if we are not willing to humble ourselves and truly seek God's outpouring of grace and power. Let these 40 days be a time to shed worldliness, carnality, unbelief and focus on prayer and expectancy for God to move and bring the breakthrough! 

There are many different ways to fast, we have outlined 4 different types of fasts below that you can participate with. It is my desire that every member of the church get involved in some way. Our desire is to have at least one person fasting every day of the 40 days. The building will be open in addition to our regular prayer meeting times on Monday & Thursday evenings from 7-9 pm. I also highly encourage everyone who can, to make a commitment to be in our weekday morning prayer meetings, and/or be in prayer 1 hour before our services during the 40 days of fasting. Get involved and let's see God move in our church, city & nation!

Types of Fasts

Water Glasses

WATER ONLY

This fast is the real deal. Jesus exemplified this fast during His fast in the wilderness as did Moses in the book of Exodus. Not for the faint of heart, this fast focuses on absolute denial of flesh and true seeking of God while only consuming water and no other foods or beverages. This type of fast needs special grace and preparation.

LIQUIDS ONLY

This fast focuses on foregoing foods and choosing liquids only such as water, smoothies, or shakes. The focus is on denying the flesh the pleasure of food and the time spent normally eating is instead spent on prayer, reading & meditation on scripture.

Healthy toast toppings

DANIEL FAST

This fast is exemplified by Daniel and his friends in the book of Daniel when they chose to forego the king's delicacies and only consume water, fruits and vegetables. This plant focused approach denies our flesh the "delicacies"that are so abundant in today's culture and instead takes time to build self-discipline and health while also focusing on prayer, reading & meditation on scripture.

Clock

INTERMITTENT FASTING

This type of fasting, made popular in recent years, focuses on fasting during most of the hours of the day and only allowing a small window of time to eat. This approach still helps to build self-control and time spent not eating is instead spent on prayer, reading & meditation on scripture.
