Weekly Fasting Resources
These fasting resources are not a box to be checked, meaning, don't just go through the motions of completing the task, but use them to connect with Jesus the best you can. Keep it simple and make space for him to speak and have his way in your life. Think of these fasting resources as a way to start the conversation with God--they are just the beginning, not the end goal. Each week will have a different scripture, prayer and worship song that can help you encounter Jesus for yourself.
Mark 11:17 (NIV) And as he [Jesus] taught them, he said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’?”
Father, I choose to make space for you through prayer. Teach me to become your house of prayer. Help me to live out your design for your temple—a lifestyle of encountering your presence.
Revelation 3:22 (NLT) Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.
Father, I choose to make space to hear your voice. Help me to listen and understand what you’re saying to me. What would you like to say to me right now?
Luke 10:42 (NIV) but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.
Father, help me to choose what is better. Help me to focus on one thing—Jesus. Not just being a good person, or going to church, or doing ministry, but teach me to sit at your feet, hanging on your every word.
Note: If you can't do a water-only fast for medical reasons, please do not. Choose one of the other options (social media, news (tv or articles), YouTube, sports, etc.).
