CCC 21 Day Fasting and Prayer Guide
This year we are committing ourselves to becoming more sensitive to the Holy Spirit. For the next 21 days we will make our relationship with God a priority.
Here are 3 ways to enhance your time of consecration:
- Use this prayer guide to begin your day with a personal meditation moment.
- As a body we will follow along with the YouVersion Bible App Plan Open My Eyes: A 21-Day Fasting Devotional from Jentezen Franklin https://www.bible.com/reading-plans/17820-21-day-fasting-devotional-from-jentezen-franklin
- Remember that fasting is a spiritual discipline of denying ourselves of pleasurable food to prayerfully connect more deeply with God. The Daniel Fast is based on Daniel Chapter 10.
