Prayer and Fasting

Image

As followers of Jesus fasting is a discipline we can use throughout the year. At Southland January has been designated as a Month of Prayer and Fasting for the church as a whole.  This is a wonderful opportunity for us to unify in a single mind/heart approach in praying for the church!  And for each individual within the church body to pray and fast for personal and/or family prayer requests during this month. 

"Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! You have said, 'Seek my face.' My heart says to you, 'Your face, Lord, do I seek.'" — Psalm 27:7-8

For more information, including different types of fasts and the physical impact of fasting, please read this Prayer & Fasting Info Sheet..

Please note: Food fasts are not recommended for children younger than 16, and always consult your doctor if you have any underlying health conditions before starting a fast.
