events 21 days of prayer + fasting

EVERYTHING-YOU-NEED-TO-KNOW

January 21 - February 10, 2022

Prayer is not just a ritual or obligation.

It is a dynamic, active, and essential part of us putting ourselves in a position to experience God’s goodness and activity.

To start 2022 we are positioning ourselves to listen to God, and see where he is working and inviting us to join him.

As we draw near to God, he draws near to us.

SOME IDEAS FOR EACH DAY.

  • Create extra, unhurried space for a meaningful time of prayer.
  • Begin each day with this simple prayer: “Lord, I believe you are able to help me hear your voice. Help me to listen today.”
  • Text “PRAY” to (833) 312-6709 to OPT-IN for our daily text-based guide.
  • Set a reminder/ alarm 3 times each day to briefly pause and prayerfully ask: “God, what are you saying to me?” (Stay tuned to our social media platforms for additional prompts!)

SOME OPPORTUNITIES TO ENGAGE IN. 

Day 1 To 21: Fasting Signup
A key component of our activity for these 21 days is the practice of “fasting.”
We’re aiming to have as many people as possible sign up to set aside something in order to seek God on each day of these three weeks. 

Sign up for period of time here: centralheights.ca/fastingsignup

Day 1 to 21 - Central Heights Prayer Journal

We want to hear what you've been hearing from God or where you are seeing him at work. And, if there are certain things he is highlighting for you (Scripture, words, pictures, promptings) to pray/proclaim let us know!

There will be a "prayer journal" that anyone from kids to seniors can contribute to during this period! It is available on Sundays at our prayer booth, or you can contribute to the digital version by sending us a message at prayer@centralheights.ca.

SOME RESOURCES TO WATCH FOR.
