21 day fast
We are so excited for you to join us on this church-wide 21 day fast! Below is a prayer prompt for each of the 21 days. We plan to start this fast on January 10th and end our fast on January 31st.
PERSONAL VISION FOR 2022
Pray for the year ahead and ask God to grow your faith in 2022. Ask the Lord to reveal Himself to you in ways that He never has before.
FAITH FOR 2022
Ask God to help you to become a stronger ambassador for Christ and His Gospel, allowing the light of Jesus to shine brighter in your life.
Spend time in prayer today for your family. For protection, health, salvation.
OUR NATION & LEADERSHIP
Spend time in prayer today for your city, our Nation and our leaders. Pray specifically for Bangor, and Maine Leadership.
Spend time today in prayer for your relationships. Pray specifically that God places the right people in your life.
OUR CHURCH LEADERSHIP
Seek the Lord in prayer for the pastors and leaders of the church of Jesus. (Ps. Matt & Jess, Our Overseers, Team Leaders) Pray to see God enlarge the territory of these individuals to advance the kingdom of God.
SALVATION FOR THE UNSAVED
Pray for those that you know who are unsaved or who have turned away from the Lord. Ask God to draw them by the power of His Spirit to faith in Christ.
PEOPLE PARTICIPATING IN 21 DAY PRAYER AND FASTING
Pray for those who are also participating in this 21 Day Challenge. Ask God to strengthen them and help them (and yourself) to remain faithfully focused on the reason why we’re spending this time in prayer and fasting.
Spend time praying for specific strongholds in your life that continue to keep you from experiencing the nearness of Christ. Ask God to replace the lies of the enemy with the truth of His Word.
Pray for those who are sick, specifically those who’ve contracted COVID-19. Ask for the faith to believe in supernatural strength and healing.
Pray for your classmates or co-workers and ask God to meet the individual needs they may have.
Ask God to make His presence and power known in your marriage or your relationship. Pray that God would continue to conform you into the image of His Son, a selfless servant. If you know of a marriage in need of prayer, spend time praying for those individuals as well. If you are yet to be married pray for your future spouse.
Pray for Sunday’s church services. Who does God want you to invite? Pray that not only would their lives be changed but that they would find their place and purpose in the body of Christ.
Pray and believe for God’s provision, especially for those who are unemployed and financially in need. Ask God to build up a new level of trust in hearts that may doubt God’s ability to provide for every one of their needs.
Pray for those who serve at church. Pray for their leaders and for a renewed sense of joy in the privilege we have to serve the people of God every week. If you’re not currently serving on a home team, ask God for an open door and opportunity to get connected to the right team. We like to call this “Taking the next step!”
With only a few days left to the 21 Day Challenge, the spiritual battle only gets tougher. Let’s pray for an overflow of God’s power and perseverance for your church family and for their desire to be a light in this world to grow all the more.
Spend time in prayer for your family. Ask the Lord to help you to honor your parents. If you are a parent, ask God to help you nurture, equip and love your children with the love of Jesus.
The Lord has a specific calling on each of our lives. Spend some time asking Him to reveal that plan to you, if He hasn’t done so already, and for the courage to walk it out daily.
Begin to pray for our missional impact as The Pines Church. Ask God to make His presence and His love known in their lives and to heal the broken areas of their heart.
YOUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY
Pray for 2022 and ask God to continue to give you the strength to maintain the spiritual disciplines you’ve established at the beginning of this year. Spend time asking the Lord to continue to take you to a new level this year and to not be satisfied with convenient or cultural Christianity.
DAY TWENTY ONE
THE PINES CHURCH
Pray for today’s church family. Pray for any individual needs you know of. Praise God as we approach our 1 Year Birthday as a church! Pray for God's purpose and vision to come forth this year for The Pines Church.
