Fast & Pray

on the 1st

The Connection Point Church family is encouraged to fast and pray the 1st day of every month, no matter on which day of the week it falls. We feel that aligning our fasting and prayer will strengthen and unify our church family as we move Forward by Faith together. If the Lord leads you to fast more frequently, we encourage you to follow His leading as it also aligns with guidance from your doctor.

The time of church unified prayer and fasting was awesome! I believe that a greater bond will be formed as we encourage each other to participate and expect God to move mightily on our behalf. I have seen it for myself from my early twenties until now. So, trust me when I say it is well worth the sacrifice!

 I knew if I was going to be successful in my fast I would have to rely on God to help me get through the 24 hours. What an amazing God we have as it was easier than I thought possible. It also helped me realize I need to be more intentional in my prayer life not only for my family but also in the life of our church.

The spiritual blessing that came out of my fast was far more powerful than any physical discomfort from abstaining from food for 24 hours.

My fasting went well. I truly felt God's presence as the day progressed and have seen His movement.  Starting with the prayers at the Lee's Summit property and progressing through my day, God was there and blessing me moment by moment.  His movement is coming to our church soon.

My fasting experience was a blessing. I felt the Lord's presence and was surprisingly not hungry. I felt good and my attention was drawn more to Him and away from other distractions.

I would describe my May 1st fasting experience as "loud" because it was a busy day of work and kids.  There wasn't enough quiet time to pause and reflect. But I did what I could, the Lord saw my heart, and now I'm looking forward to the next one.
