At Cornerstone Covenant Church, we believe that as a Kingdom citizen we share in the duties, rights and privileges. Therefore, as Kingdom citizens we have the privilege and duty of giving, praying and fasting.
Understand, Biblical fasting takes a lot of discipline and strength—strength which you can only receive from God. Your private discipline will bring you rewards in Heaven, says Matthew 6. When you give God your first through fasting, prayer and giving at the beginning of the year,
you set the course for the entire year.
At Cornerstone Covenant Church, we want to encourage you to target your prayers during the fast. Three specific areas we will be focusing on together is our Faith, Family and our Finances. During this #21DAYFAST2019 we would like to encourage you all to read the entire book of Malachi.
In addition to Malachi, please discover the powerful promise found in Isaiah 58:6, which proclaims that the chosen fast will “undo the heavy burdens and let the oppressed go free.”
“[Is] not this the fast that I have chosen to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?”
Many of us may be living in tough economic times and we know that so many people are under a financial burden. As we come together to fast and pray, we believe that your burdens will be lifted and that financial blessings will be released into your life!
We encourage you to seek the Lord in prayer and let your decisions about your biblical fasting come from Him. Ask the Lord to show you areas to target during your time of fasting and prayer. We believe that, as we pray and seek God and give Him our best at the first of the year, He will bless our ENTIRE year (Matthew 6:33)!
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
