BBQ! You might be thinking, why would someone even mention BBQ during a season of fasting? It seems counterintuitive. But in the last two verses of Hebrews 12, Paul teaches us that the Kingdom we seek through our time of prayer and fasting (The Kingdom of God), is “unshakable” and that our God is a “consuming fire." When we pray, fast and worship, with thanksgiving and reverence, we draw closer to the consuming fire that He is. It’s not just a little flame, it’s all consuming. His presence and glory take over. And, it’s amid that Holy, consuming fire that God does His refining work in your life. Pray, fast, worship and draw close to the fire!

A Guide to Prayer and Fasting
21 Days Prayer and Fasting
Change. We all long for it. We want to see change in our lives, in our families, in our country, and in our world. Throughout history many people have promised change, from political and religious figures to self proclaimed experts and self help guides. But lasting change and true transformation only comes through Jesus Christ. Our prayers are often for God to change this situation or that person. But what if God is looking to bring about change in and through us? Over the next 21 days we will encounter God through scripture, prayer, and fasting and allow him to change our hearts and minds. Only then we will see breakthroughs in our families, our community, our city, and our world.
Praying the Lord's Prayer
Day 1 - God is at work
Today we begin 21 days of prayer and fasting. As you set apart these three weeks to seek God, know that God has already heard your prayer. He is already at work on your behalf. What specific clarity of vision are you seeking from God during this time? Write down your prayer so you can reflect on it at the end of the 21 days. Spend time praying for God to speak to you and give you strength.
