14 Days of Prayer & Fasting

As a church family we will begin 2024 (Monday, January 8th) with our annual practice spent in an intentional time of prayer & fasting for 14 days. We have found this practice to be necessary and important as many of us are desperate for breakthrough, something that a practice of fasting brings forth.

Prayer and Fast Graphic

“What is God waiting to pour out on our church, city and our lives if we would
seek him through prayer & fasting?”

Weʼve seen instances in the Bible when a community of people fast together, asking for the Lordʼs direction (Lev. 23:27). This season of fasting together as a church will unify us as we collectively assume a posture of receiving from God by turning over our plates as we hunger for more of Him.

Some of the most encouraging words that we can read as we prepare to enter into this season are found in Acts 13:2, which reads, “While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said...” We are encouraged and invigorated to know that our time of dedicating ourselves to the Lord in this way will result in us actually hearing from Him!

"Prayers are prophecies. They are the best predictors of your spiritual future. Who you become is determined by how you pray. Ultimately, the transcript of your prayers becomes the script of your life."

Mark Batterson

Fasting with Prayer Guide

Biblical fasting is refraining from food for a spiritual purpose. Our primary focus in fasting is to fix our eyes on Jesus and to listen to hear the voice and direction of God. It is vitally important for us to pay attention to our motives behind the commitment weʼve made.

During this season of 21 Days of Prayer, we encourage fasting as a spiritual next-`step that can bring clarity and revelation into your life. You can also choose to fast at other times of the year as you seek God.

The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our souls and renews us 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.

Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and most importantly to seek God in prayer and follow that the Holy Spirit leads you to do.


At Motivation, we encourage fasting for 14 days each year at the beginning of the year. This is part of 14 Days of Prayer and Fasting, which is season of focused prayer as a church family.

You may also choose to fast at other times during the year for your own spiritual development. It's very typical to fast a single meal, a whole day, or three days or more.

The time of your fast is not as important as the strength of your focus on God as you fast.

Types of Fasting

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 meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.

Complete Fast

In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

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 specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

Creating Daily Habits

Kneeling Prayer Three Times a Day

Carefully placed prayer is one of the keystones habits of spiritual formation and is the beginning of building the foundation of habit.

One Meal with Each Other

Making time for one communal meal each day forces us to reorient our schedules and our space around food and each other.

One Hour with Phone Off

Turning off our phones for one our a day is a way to turn our gaze up to each other, whether that be our children, friends, co-workers, or neighbors.

Scripture Before Screens

Refusing to check the phone until after reading a passage or scripture is a way of replacing the question, “What do I need to do Today?” with a better one, “Who am I and who am I becoming?”
