Why fast

Your goal in fasting is to develop a closer relationship with God by voluntarily denying your flesh. Fasting is a time of consecration from the things of the world to the things of God.

I am thankful to God that we have entered into this period of fasting and praying. I strongly encourage each member to join us as we fast, pray, and seek the Lord during the fasting period. We will begin forty days of fasting on March 1 2017, and will conclude the fast on April 15, 2017.

Fasting is one of the most powerful of all Christian disciplines. Through fasting and prayer, the Holy Spirit can transform your life. The awesome power of God can be released in you as you fast, with enabling of the Holy Spirit. If done properly fasting will prove to be, not only a spiritual blessing, but a physical blessing as well. This is why I am encouraging each member to fast and to spend at least 30 minutes in prayer, meditation, and Bible study each day. A scripture and prayer log have been in the brochure below.

While each of you may be praying and fasting for a specific goal, our corporate goal for The House of Hope is the manifestation of the 2017 vision focus, "The Year of TIME" We encourage all members to participate as we pray together as a family at least once a day.

As we incorporate "The Year of TIME" into our 2017 Lenten fast, it is important to also be mindful of our "Mission 20/20" program. The program shows the exhaustive and comprehensive nature of the vision and opportunities that have been divinely afforded us. Our great God has mandated that we have His imagination while doing enormous things for Him. The "Mission 2020" plan will allow House of Hope Atlanta to engage in powerful and enumerable ministry opportunities. Through your prayers and support we will transform our community, make significant capital improvements and eliminate all short and long-term debt. I'm asking that you pray for supernatural resources and human capital to be added to our comprehensive plan. I'm believing God for unparalleled provision.

Jesus Christ, our Kurios Christos, said in Matthew 17:21 that certain types of powers only come when we fast and pray. Brothers and Sisters, as we continue in our fast, let us do so with the intent of becoming stronger on the Spirit, steadfast in Scriptures, and secure in our Savior. Always remember, if you will be good to God, then God will be good to you.
