14 Days Of Prayer And Fasting

The call and invitation to 14 days of prayer and fasting is a huge endeavor that shouldn't be undervalued or dismissed; the challenge set against the opportunities is not something we should downplay or ignore. I firmly believe that if we as a church body commit to seeking the will and ways of the Father at this time, Calvary Tuscaloosa's future potential cannot be overemphasized.

Just to be clear, fasting is not a diet, a way to lose a few pounds after the holidays, or anything to boast or gloat over. Instead, it is a posture of obedience, surrender, and sacrifice that asks the Lord to do his will in our church and our own lives.

Examples Of 14 Days Of Prayer And Fasting

You are a dependable father, and your love never fades. We approach you in humility, knowing our utter need for you. So that our prayersare in line with your purposes for our families, our churches, our communities, and our states, let us pray with our minds fixed on your goodness and greatness.

We pray that the presence of your Son may grow within us so that the world will see you as the God who rescues, heals, and restores.

Description Of Fasting In The Bible

Even though fasting is frequently described in the Bible, it is not particularly prescribed for us as Jesus' disciples. Jesus talks about our motivations, but he skips over the logistics of fasting. What I'm about to say isn't a prescription for how you should fast; rather, it's a description of a few things that might make it easier for you to enter a season of fasting and prayer.

Major Fast

When you go without eating or drinking for twenty-four or more hours straight, it's considered a big fast. A major fast necessitates a particular level of physical fitness, and it is advised that you consult your doctor if it will persist for more than a few days physical fitness, and it is advised that you consult your doctor if it will persist for more than a few days. Matthew 4:2, Acts 9:9, and Esther 4:15–16 are only a few verses from the Bible that provide examples of a significant fast.

Minor Fast

A modest fast is when you decide to go without eating for a short while (i.e., from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. or from sunup to sundown). This fast, which is often referred to as a "Jewish fast," can last for days at a time and restricts eating to specific times of the day. Most people who are on a minor fast will have liquids during the day and one small meal after sunset each evening.

The Natural And Spiritual Reasons

The truth of the two realms we find ourselves in, the natural and the spiritual, is one of the more existential ideas of scripture and theology. As a result, the Bible sheds light on specific incidents in the conflict between the forces of God's kingdom and the forces of evil, also known as the enemy.
We know one thing for certain: the Enemy wants nothing more than to ruin and put an end to any and every positive work of and for the Kingdom of God. There is a lot of uncertainty about how this cosmic cacophony affects and relates to our physical reality. Yes, we are aware that Christ's second coming, atonement, and onenesswith the Father will bring about the outcome and victory (for those of us who are in Christ).

Your relationship with God can be reawakened over the next 14 days of prayer and fasting. We have to work to keep our connection with God vibrant, engaging, and passionate. No doubt about it, we have a very real enemy who would love nothing more than to lull our souls to sleep while we believe everything is OK.
