Days of Prayer and Fasting 2021

Each year our world-wide GCI Ministry Family sets aside  November 1-21 to humble ourselves before the Lord through prayer and fasting. We draw close to God and each other. We get re-centered in Christ. It strengthens our faith, positions us for more revelation and Kingdom manifestation in our lives and ministries. Please join us! Instructions on the back page.

Prayer and Fasting Focus

Our season of prayer and fasting is a dedicated and concentrated time to seek the Lord. This year our scripture selections span the Gospel of Luke and a couple passages from the first two chapters of Acts. Luke is the inspired author of his book and the Book of Acts. Let the daily scripture passage be a springboard into your prayer time. Look at this time as a journey with Jesus. 


¨ As the coming Messiah, Jesus was a promise manifested. He was the fulfilment of prophesies and the answer of the    prayers of many. Note the expressions of those who recognized the time of His coming. Let their words give voice to your petitions and declarations to God. 

¨ Jesus was a man of prayer. Jesus modeled prayer. He practiced prayer and fasting. Learn from Him. 

¨ His disciples asked Him to teach them to pray. Jesus taught on the value and impact of prayer and fasting. 

¨ He demonstrated the power and anointing in the Spirit that is generated through prayer and fasting.

¨ He stressed the importance of checking the content of the heart and having a right spirit in prayer.

¨ He exemplified for us that the Father is the ultimate Source for our help, guidance and provision for our lives.

¨ He personified absolute faith in the Father. Be expectant! 

¨ He stressed the importance of being filled and flowing in the Holy Spirit.

You may want to fast one meal a day for the 21 days or fast selected days. Do what works for you. On Day 14 we encourage you to include communion in your time. Remember this is your offering to the Lord. Be mindful, prayer is speaking and listening. You may want to incorporate worship. We encourage you to keep a journal. Record impressions and words that the Lord speaks to you.
