Prayer is our first response, 
not our last resort.


Every January, we set aside 21 days to intentionally seek God in prayer and believe for Him to move in powerful ways.
Each Wednesday and Saturday morning, we gather for a one-hour prayer experience, including worship, personal prayer time, and corporate prayer. Whether you join us in person or online, we would love for you to take part in 21 Days of Prayer.

21 Days of Devotionals

You can enjoy a new devotional every day for the next 21 days, brought to you by some of our pastors and leaders here at Metro Harvest. Whether you add these devotionals into your prayer time or read them throughout your day, our prayer is that they may bless you, challenge you, and remind you to always pray first.

Fasting

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. 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. For those that may have health challenges, we recommend you make a prayerfully informed decision with your doctor before making a final choice on the type of fasting you'd like to enter into.

Types of Fasts

Complete Fast
In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

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.

Partial Fast
This fast is sometimes called the “Jewish Fast” and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

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.
