Pastor Rob wants us to pray for something specific and watch God do it!

Why should we fast now?

God has done amazing things for us in freeing us from the $3.8 million debt and having Catalyst raise the $4.1 million for remodeling!
We want be strong as we go through this adjustment period!
We want the power to flow as we love each other and our visitors!
We want to stave off any attacks from the Evil One during this new era for our church!

God releases supernatural power, favor, and protection over the church when the corporate body fasts together.

What kinds of fasts could we do?

Why should we fast?
  • Fasting humbles the soul before God, denies and masters the appetite, manifests an earnest desire to seek God, gives us power over demonic oppression, and aids in prayer. Humility helps us to hear and see spiritually. Psalms 35:13
  • Through fasting, Jesus draws us closer to His side so that we can win souls, walk in spiritual authority, and advance His Kingdom at a greater speed and with greater impact. The discipline of fasting releases the anointing, the favor, and the blessing of God in the life of the Christian. It brings one into a deeper, more intimate, and powerful relationship with the Lord. It is a secret source of power.
  • When we fast, we put our spirit in charge of our minds. It puts the spirit in the driver’s seat of our thoughts and actions so that we choose the holy things of God.
  • ONE PERSON FASTING IS POWERFUL, BUT WHEN A GROUP OF PEOPLE BEGIN TO FAST, IT IS MULTIPLIED STRENGTH! IT IS MULTIPLIED POWER! Joel 1:14, 2 Chronicles 20:3-4
