WHY 21 DAYS OF PRAYER AND FASTING? - 21 days creates a habit
• We become what we repeatedly do
• We don’t form habits, habits form us.• Our habits should not be like the habits of those in the world.

This is why we are doing the 21 days of prayer and fasting. To get closer to God.
FASTING - abstaining from something, usually food or drinks, in order to draw closer to God.

Complete Fast - In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water, juices, or coffee/tea.
Selective Fast - This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the “Daniel Fast”, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet.
Partial Fast - This fast is sometimes called the “Jewish Fast” - It’s just where you don’t eat from sunup to sun down.
Soul Fast - This fast helps you to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television or listening to certain music for the duration of the fast.

DON’T FAST TO:
• Lose weight To be accepted and loved by God To show how holy you
are
Fasting is not just abstaining FROM something...it’s giving yourself TO something.

Prayer, hearing God, study of His word.
If you only view it as abstaining FROM something you will despise it. When you see it as giving yourself TO God...you embrace it.
Unbelieving is far from God. Perverse is close to the world.
Prayer brings you close to God. Fasting takes you far from the world.

PRAYER
Prayer is the foundation of our relationship with God. - It’s a conversation with God. We can pray anytime...in fact we should.
Often our response to life is to worry, to get anxious, to complain, to go to our friends, to google it - Prayer isn’t our first response, it’s often a last response. Prayer becomes your first response when you’ve developed a relationship with God through prayer.

These 3 things will help you in cultivating a lifestyle of prayer.

HAVE A CERTAIN TIME

HAVE A CERTAIN PLACE

HAVE A CERTAIN PLAN
21 Day Devotional - The purpose of this is to teach you to pray. We are taking the 21 days and focusing on elements of this model prayer creating a lifestyle of prayer.

PRAYER CHANGES ME AND THEN I CHANGE THINGS.

God change my spouse. God soften their heart. God help my finances. God help my kids be good. When I pray, God changes my heart, my perspective, my attitude. God changes me.
Jesus taught His disciples how to pray, He gave an outline. We call it “The Model Prayer.”
Our best efforts apart from him do nothing. Our best effort apart from being connected to the source...are just hard work with no results
