As we begin a new year, we are putting a high priority on prayer and seeking the Holy Spirit’s presence. As we do this, we believe that God will impact us significantly and set the course of our lives for 2020. Please don’t miss out on this window of time and let’s step into this season together. Starting tomorrow and for the next two weeks, we will be gathering Monday – Friday mornings from 6:30 – 7:30 am here at the church. We will also be streaming these morning prayer times live on Facebook via our City Life Church Facebook page.

Hearing From God Weekend with Gary Heyes
Fri, Jan 24 – Sun, Jan 26
1. Complete Fast
In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.
2. Soul Fast
This 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 at the conclusion of the fast.
3. Partial Fast
This involved abstaining from eating any type of food for a specific time. As an example, this could mean fasting one meal or fasting from sunup to sundown.
Prayer & Fasting
During these 21 Days of Prayer, we encourage you to take a next step of including fasting in your prayer time. We believe that Church is community and it can be motivating to participate in something together with other people at the same time. Because of this, we have selected three different fasts on three specific days to do together as a church. Of course, you are welcome to fast however and whenever you feel to do so but why not join together on these days!
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. Remember that your personal fast should present a level of challenge but it is important to know what you can handle, your options and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.
- Monday, January 6, 13, 20 – Soul Fast (Select something that you will remove from your life to focus more on God that day

I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen. When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.
