31 Days of Prayer & Fasting

“Prayer connects us to God. Fasting disconnects us from our fleshly desires and the world system.”

As we begin this journey of prayer and fasting over the next 31 days, let us use the time for reflections, reengaging, and refocusing. Let us reflect on what God has already done for us. And thank Him for all of our past experiences, the good and the not so good. Why? Because whatever God has allowed us to experience in our past was for our benefit and part of His plan to draw us closer to Him. Let us look to reengage. If you have found that you have drifted from your prayer and devotional time, reading your Bible, attending church services, or whatever it may be that has moved you away from the things of God and His presence, this is a time to repent and get reengaged. Let us also use the next 31 days as a time for refocusing. Regardless of what may have caused you to be distracted from the things of God, regardless of what may have not worked for you in the past whether it was due to choices you made or choices made by others that adversely affected you, now is the time to refocus. Take your focus off your situation or people who may have wrong you and put your focus on God and His plan and purpose for your life.

My prayer for you is that during the next 31 days you will experience a deeper craving for the beauty of the Lord and the wonder of His leading in your life as well as experiencing the fullness of the Holy Spirit and the favor of God. May God overwhelm you with His presence, grace, and favor as you seek to pour out of yourself and He pours Himself into you!

1.Prayer time: Use the schedule of the following pages as your guide for times of prayer and meditation. You should take time each day and during the week to meditate on the prayer points and assigned scripture reading. Also, we are asking everyone to set aside between 7:30 pm to 8:00 pm Monday, and Wednesday thru Sunday nights for scripture reading and to specifically pray the “prayer points” for that week. The time devoted to prayer and meditation can be between 15 to 30 minutes. If possible, arrange to pray with your spouse, a relative, a church member, a friend, etc.

2.Types of Fasts to consider:

a. Full Fast – In this type of fast the person abstains from food but not water. Drink water (may include fruit juices – 100%, unsweetened and vegetable juices. If drinking juice with added sugar, dilute it with at least 60% water.) You establish the duration. It can be for the full 31 days or two to three days each week during the 31 days. Be led by the Spirit.

b. The Daniel Fast – Eat no meat, no sweets, and no bread for 31 days. Eat fruits, nuts, and Drink only water.

c. Partial Fast – Drink only liquids (water and fruit juices). A partial fast may be from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm or from sun up until sundown for the 31 days (or several days a week during the 31 days – you establish the number of days).

NOTE: You can do one of the three fasts for the entire 31 days or you can do a combination of all three. For example, one week do the full fast for 2 days, the Daniel fast for 3 days, and partial fast for 2 days. During the next week do the Daniel fast for a week. The next week do the partial fast for a week, etc. Also, consider giving up TV time and at least one food item during your 31 days of fasting.

NOTE: If you take medication, make sure to take it as prescribed by your physician. If you are required to take your medicine with food, feel free to adjust your time of fasting as appropriate.

As you know, our country is in the middle of a great crisis in which the root cause is spiritual. The best way to bring about positive change in this country is on our knees. And the best source to turn to is not the politicians, T.V. talk shows, the news, or social media, but the very Word of God.

  • Pray that God’s Kingdom come and His will be done in our nation.
  • Pray that we as a nation will turn back to the God of the Holy Bible.
  • Pray that our President and leaders will be led to make decisions that are aligned with God’s will.
  • Pray that we would seek God in humility and that God will bring healing and unity to our nation.
  • Pray against injustice of all types.

  • Pray for your Personal-Individual Needs and Desires: Think about your personal needs and desires. What do you want Him to do for you or in your life? Whatever it might be, write it down and take it to Him in prayer. And believe that your request will be granted! [ Scripture: John 15:7; Mark 11:24; Philippians 4:6]

We know that Jesus Christ has overcome the world. Therefore, let us live victoriously, faithfully following Jesus each day. As we do this, we can be confident that He will complete His work in and through us (Philippians 1:6).
