Starting September 20th the Point Church will have a day of fast and prayer. The heart of the Point is to establish 20 churches by the year 2020 in the Vancouver metro area.
Symbolically, the point church community will be encouraged to pray and fast on the 20th of every month. As a group we will meet at the IFC at 6:00 a.m. to have a time of prayer before work, school, etc. If you cannot make it to the 6:00 a.m. meeting, no worries! You can pray on your own as we all fast together.
Not sure what a fast is? Webster’s Dictionary describes it as abstaining from all foods, some foods, or to eat sparingly. The idea behind this is definitely not to be legalistic! In fact, you don’t even have to fast from food. Some suggestions may be technology, coffee, or sweets.
The key is to abstain from something that is natually part of your day that you would notice significantly if you did not have. Some may fast for the hours of daylight, and some may fast for a full 24 hours. The idea of fasting is to have extra time to spend with God in prayer and to increase our dependency on Him. We are looking forward to our first day of prayer and fasting as a church September 20th.
