EFBC 21-Day Consecration/Fast 2018

On Wednesday, January 3 at 6:00am we will begin our 21-Day Consecration/Fast!

Why do we Fast? 
We fast with the intent to draw closer to God and our relationship with God should be strengthened after fasting. Fasting helps us in the area in which our flesh is weak and makes our spirit stronger.

While Fasting, Remember:
1. Before you fast have the heart and write down what you’re fasting for.
2. Pray that God gives you strength to keep your fast and be sure to spend time worshipping Him.
3. If you break your fast, pray, ask for forgiveness and get back on track.
4. Read and study the word of God throughout your day; this will become your nutrients.
5. Remember, fasting is an experience, but CONSECRATION is a lifestyle!
The Importance of Fasting: 

In Daniel 10, we see that Daniel fasted for three weeks. He had been praying on a situation but could not get an answer from God. He decided to couple his prayer with fasting and, after three weeks, the angel of the Lord appeared to him. The angel told him that he was on his way to bring an answer, but the prince of Persia (evil) was fighting and holding him up. When God saw Daniel fasting he sent Michael (the warring angel) to fight the prince of Persia so that Daniel could receive his answer from God!
