21 Days of Corporate Fasting and Prayer

As we’ve heard prophecied, 2023 is a year of great significance in the Kingdom of God. We believe God wants to do incredible things among us and through us this year; thing we have not yet even imagined. Therefore, it becomes very important that we consecrate ourselves afresh as we begin the year in preparation for what God will do. This is the motivation for our upcoming 21 day corporate fast starting Friday, January 6th to Friday, January 27th.


Why are we fasting?

We want to be a people who show forth the glory of God. We want to be the difference in the world around us. We want to be the light set on a hill that brings light in the darkness. This fast tells God we are serious about Him and His kingdom. We are ready to ‘leave behind every weight and every sin so that easily entangles us, so that we can run the race set before us. (Hebrews 12:1) We believe Him. We believe His Word.

Romans 12:2 TPT Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in His eyes.

We are ready to change. We are ready to grow. 

How are we fasting?

 There are several ways that you can fast. We encourage you to ask the Lord what type of fast you should do.

a)     Liquid Fast – only consume liquids eg. soups, juices, water and herbal teas

b)    Daniel Fast – only consume vegetables, fruits, nuts etc. Drink juices, water and teas

c)     Partial Fast – skip a meal each day OR eliminate a certain foods from your diet eg dairy, sugar or bread

The aim is that you are sacrificing something that usually sustains and comforts you. This is NOT a diet. We deny ourselves these foods and instead spend time with the Lord in prayer and reading the Bible. This feeds us spiritually and will sustain us.  

In addition to fasting from food, we are also encouraging everyone to unplug from social media and news media platforms for 21 days. The flood of digital information and non-stop voices are constantly discipling us in the ways of the world, without us even realising it. In these 21 days we are going to be intentional about ‘not conforming to the world, but being transformed by the renewing of our minds” Romans 12:2   Each day of the fast there is a scripture that we ask you to read and meditate on for that day. You will find these scriptures and short teachings here on this page. Check back each day to find the scripture. Here you can also submit testimonies and prayer requests as you go through the fast. 

Practical Ways to prepare yourself to fast

1.  Pray about how to fast.

2.  Make the commitment to the Lord. How will you fast, what will you sacrifice. Write it down in your journal.

3. Prepare your heart. Bring any fears, doubts to the Lord.

4. Prepare physically. Cut out coffee / caffeine at least 3 days before you start fasting. If going on liquids, eat only raw vegetables and fruits for 2 days before start of fast. Adjust your plans and commitments during the fast so that you have time to pray and spend time with God.

5. Set your schedule. Decide now when you will pray each day. Make note of prayer services, corporate prayer and all corporate prayer initiatives. Be part of it.

6. Persevere. Encourage one another.

7. Break the fast gradually. If you only took liquids, re-introduce solid food slowly. Start with fruits and raw vegetables. Then add simple starches. Drink plenty of fluids. Lastly add back white meat and then red meat.
