Feb 14 – Mar 28

Every significant move of God is always birthed in a focus of prayer and fasting. Join us as we enter into a season of reading scripture, prayer & fasting as we prepare to celebrate the Resurrection this Easter at Adventure Church. It’s not only a time of abstaining from certain things but also embracing the true heart of Christ and renew our commitment to serving His Kingdom.

Why Do We Fast?

We fast so that we can disconnect from the world and connect with God! Fasting is about drawing closer to God and getting more of his presence in our lives. When we choose to fast we choose to hit the reset button of our souls that begins to renew us from the inside out. Fasting enables us to celebrate the goodness of God and prepares our hearts for the good things our Heavenly Father is going to bring into our lives. When deciding on what to fast we encourage you to seek prayer, and wise counsel, and follow what the Holy Spirit calls you to do.

 

Types Of Fast

Selective Fast
This fast consists of removing specific items from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the daniel fast where you remove meats, sweets, and bread from your diet.

Complete Fast
This fast consists of removing all food and only drinking liquid. Mostly water and light juices.

Partial Fast
This fast is sometimes called the “Jewish Fast” and consists of abstaining from any food from sunup to sundown. For example, in Ohio it’s not eating from 7am to 5pm. ‘

Soul Fast
This is a great option for those people who aren’t experienced with fasting food or have health reasons that prevent them from fasting. This is when you abstain from certain areas of your life that can easily get out of balance. For example, a soul fast could be giving up TV, social media, or watching sports.

Good & Merciful
God is pure, there is no sin, darkness or impurity in Him. He is unable to sin, which means He is unable to sin against us or humanity. All that He does is good. He is compassionate and does not pour out the wrath that we deserve.
Ps 34:8, Ps 107:1, Titus 3:5, Ps 25:10, Lam 3:22-23

February 15th
Incomprehensible & Transcendent
God is high above and beyond human understanding. He is unable to be fully known. When we get a glimpse of His magnitude, so many of our fears, worries and questions get swallowed up and put to rest in the reality of who He truly is.
Rom 11:33-36, Isaiah 55:8-9, Job 38-42, Ps 145:3

February 16th
Omniscient, Omnipotent & Omnipresent
God is all-knowing, there is nothing unknown to Him. God is all-powerful. His strength is unlimited. God is everywhere; His presence is near and permeating.

God does not change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is our measurement of what is fact. By Him we are able to discern between true and false.

God is long-suffering and enduring. He gives abundant opportunity for people to turn towards Him. He is kind, giving gifts and benefits to us that we do not deserve.
Rom 2:4, 2 Peter 3:9, Ps 145:8, Jonah 4:2, Is 30:18

February 21st
Purify my heart.

Psalm 139:23-24 “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you and lead me along the path of everlasting life.”

February 22nd
Increase my spiritual hunger.

Matthew 5:6“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”

John 6:33-35 “For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.”

February 23rd
Help me walk in obedience.

John 15:14 “If you love me, obey my commandments.”

1 Peter 13-16 “So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”

February 24th
Open my eyes to see people as you see them.

Matthew 25:40 Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

1 Sam 16:7b “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

February 26th
Help me to be faithful during this season. Help me live intentionally, trusting that you ordain my steps and see each act of obedience.

Ps 139:15-17 “My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God!

February 27th
Help me keep my eyes focused on the eternal prize that you have called me to.

Philippians 3:12-21 ” I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us… Dear brothers and sisters, pattern your lives after mine, and learn from those who follow our example. For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth. But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.

Leadership & Church Family
1 Timothy 2:1-2 “I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.”
2 Thess 1:11-12 “Because we know that this extraordinary day is just ahead, we pray for you all the time—pray that our God will make you fit for what he’s called you to be, pray that he’ll fill your good ideas and acts of faith with his own energy so that it all amounts to something. If your life honors the name of Jesus, he will honor you. Grace is behind and through all of this, our God giving himself freely, the Master, Jesus Christ, giving himself freely.”
Galatians 6:7-10 Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.” Galatians 6:7-10
Matt 9:36-38  “When he [Jesus] saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few.  So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.”

Unity in Adventure Church Family
  • “I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.” 1 Cor 1:10
  • “So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others” Phil 2:1-4
  • Pray that in a year that will be full of opportunity for division: political, ideological, relational and every other opportunity for anger, fear and tension to divide us, that we would act as true believers of Christ. Taking our cues from Jesus and not culture. He was full of grace and truth. Pray that in the midst of turmoil, we will be TRANSFORMED by the Word and not conformed to the culture around us.

Local & Global Ministry Partners
 Matt 25:31-40 “But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit upon his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered in his presence, and he will separate the people as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will place the sheep at his right hand and the goats at his left. “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’ Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me’!”
