STARTING THE YEAR WITH JESUS

Many of us take stock at the beginning of the year. Commit to new habits. Reflect on what has been, and plan for what will be.

In this season of inventory, of planning and envisioning, let’s invite Jesus into the heart of that. Below are a number of ways you might consider doing this.

21 DAYS OF PRAYER & FASTING

“Fasting from any nourishment, activity, involvement or pursuit—for any season—sets the stage for God to appear.” – Dan B. Allender

We’re joining our wider Vineyard family in the UK and Ireland in 21 days of prayer and fasting. We’re starting on 3rd January and ending on 31st January. During this time we are praying and asking God for a fresh move of His Spirit in our churches, our towns and cities and our nation as a whole.

You may fast from food, or certain meals – perhaps food types. But you may also fast from other things that distract us from God – social media, Netflix etc. Below is a daily plan of prayer from the Vineyard to help guide us.

We’ll be fasting weekdays only.

If you have medical concerns do seek advice from a medical professional before fasting from food.
