The power of a church is in its prayer life.

We truly believe that hard times are coming to the people of God, but that there is hope where God is taking His church. With hardship, there is opportunity for God to move in incredible ways and for us to see a revival in our city. As His people; dedicating time to pray and fast shifts our focus on Jesus and prepares our hearts for what’s to come.

If you call Times Square Church your home church, we are challenging you to join us to pray and fast as a church. Along with our Bible school, Summit International School of Ministry, we are dedicating four days of prayer and fasting from Sunday through Wednesday, August 21–24.

More About Fasting

During these 4 Days of Prayer and Fasting, we encourage fasting as a spiritual next step that can bring clarity and revelation into your life. The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God.

Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives.

Here are 3 common fasts that may help you decide how you want to join us in fasting for these 4 days. Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.

Selective Fast:
This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.

Soul Fast:
This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance.

For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.

Complete Fast:
In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option. You should only do this if you have experiences fasting and have consulted with your doctor.

Here’s a few Biblical references to fasting:
Matthew 6:16-18 
Luke 18:9-14
Matthew 9:14-15
Acts 27:33-37
Nehemiah 9:1-3
