Fasting and Prayer
February 25th through March 17th as we go through a sermon series based on the Holy Roar book by Chris Tomlin and Darren Whitehead. We encourage you to pick up the book on Sunday or purchase it online and follow with us:
We are fasting for clarity and unity.
The Victory Church 2nd Ave. location (3499 2nd Ave. in Boca Raton) will be open from noon – 1 pm daily through March 17th.
“Fasting is a spiritual exercise, a voluntary restraint from food for the purpose of seeking God.
The purpose for fasting is to weaken the power of the flesh, and its hold on us, and to increase our awareness of the spiritual realm.”
– Pastor Don Karpinen
“Consecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly; Gather the elders And all the inhabitants of the land in the house of the Lord your God, And cry out to the Lord.”
– Joel 1:14 NKJV
Some are asking, “What should my fast look like?” That is a question that should be answered for you by the Lord through prayer. What is He speaking to your heart? Some will fast a meal a day, some two meals a day, some an entire day one or several days during the week. Some won’t fast food (some have medical reasons why they should not) but instead will fast something else and spend the time normally spent on that activity, in prayer time. Everyone’s fast may look different.
