Prayer Calendar

The book of Habakkuk introduces us to a persevering prophet who intercedes on behalf of God’s people. Habakkuk witnessed the injustice occurring in the world around him and beseeched God to see and respond according His righteousness. In Habakkuk 2, God instructs the prophet to write clearly His promises of hope and justice, so that others may be encouraged and spread the message.

For the past several years we as a church have been drawn back to a simple document which outlines a God-inspired blueprint for Living Faith. This Vision Script has brought alignment to the ministry and message of our church. As we engage the new year, we believe God is inviting us to fully engage in this vision.

Each Sunday in January, we will explore how members of Living Faith can take ownership of key aspects of our vision and help bring them into reality. During this sermon series, you are invited to spend the next 21 days praying God’s blessing over our future.

Prayer Instructions:
- Read and re-read the vision statement of the day.
- What Scripture comes to mind as you consider this statement?
- What would it look like for Living Faith to fully represent this statement?
- How might God be calling you to help bring this statement to life?
- Declare God’s blessing over Living Faith as we fully realize the reality of God’s invitation to become this statement.

This is also a great opportunity to consider fasting as a way to further connect with what God is saying in this season. If you need some direction to go on a fast, below you'll find some explanations and links to further resources.

Introduction to Fasting:

The goal of fasting is to draw near to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it allows us to reset our souls and experience renewal from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives. Fasting should present a level of challenge to those who engage, but it is very important for participants to know their own body and the options available as they seek God in prayer and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Types of Fasts:

  •  Complete Fast: In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices or broth as an option. 
  •  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 meats, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food. 
  • Partial Fast: This fast is sometimes called the “Jewish Fast” and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to a specific time of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown. 
  • Soul Fast: This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish 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 for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.
