21 DAY CHALLENGE
1. Set Your Objective
Ask the Holy Spirit to clarify His leading and objectives for your time of prayer and fasting. This will enable you to pray more specifically and strategically.
2. Make Your Commitment about the kind of fast you should undertake.
Before you fast, decide the following up front: What will I fast from? How often? And for how long?You might decide to fast one meal a day for the 21 days. You might decide to give up TV or social media. Whatever is hindering you and your focus on the Lord might be a good place to start.
3. Prepare Yourself Spiritually
The very foundation of fasting and prayer is repentance. Unconfessed sin will hinder your prayers. So will unforgiveness. Ask the Holy Spirit to bring these things to your mind and, as He reveals them, deal with immediately.
4. Expect Opposition
Do not underestimate spiritual opposition. Satan sometimes intensifies the natural battle between body and spirit (Galatians 5:16,17).
5. Follow the On Line Devotional
You can follow the daily online devotional by visiting our website and going to the 21 Day Challenge. You can also pick an online devotional of your own choosing from the YouVersion Bible App on your smartphone or IPad.
6. Expect Results
If you sincerely humble yourself before the Lord, repent, pray, and seek God’s face; if you consistently meditate on His Word, you will experience a heightened awareness of His presence (John 14:21). The Lord will give you fresh, new spiritual insights. Your confidence and faith in God will be strengthened. You will feel mentally, spiritually, and physically refreshed. You will see answers to your prayers.
