Join Us for 21 Days!

Beginning January 9, you’re invited to join Pine Hills in a church-wide 21-day time of intentional prayer and fasting that promises to energize your prayer life, enlarge your understanding of your wealth in Christ, and enrich your intimacy with the Holy Spirit.

Fasting and prayer can also bring about more than just personal transformation. When God’s people practice biblical fasting and prayer, God hears from heaven and can heal our lives, our churches, our communities, our nations, and our world. Fasting and prayer can bring about revival!

Our hope is that God will bring spiritual breakthrough in areas where you’re desiring it and that you will experience His love and presence deeper than you’ve ever felt it before. We encourage you to take this journey with us and to see what God can do in the next three weeks!

Prayer

Prayer is a biblical discipline and spiritual habit that directly and instantly connects us to God, allowing us to deepen our dependence on Him and strengthen our faith. When we pray, we surrender ourselves through faith to put everything in God’s hands.

Our relationship with him is personal, and the act of prayer creates intimacy with Him. We know our Heavenly Father hears us and is in relationship with us. For this reason, we pray in confidence knowing that our prayers are powerful, and God can work in our lives in powerful ways.

Our guide book includes daily prayers for you to follow. Pick up a guide book at Pine Hills or download the digital version below.

Fasting

The primary purpose of fasting is to become more like Jesus by drawing closer to the heart of God. This discipline allows us to break the power of the flesh in our life – our desires, sins, and cravings – and to feed on the Holy Spirit.

Biblical fasting can be defined as abstaining from food for spiritual purposes. Simply going without food because it is not available or for medical reasons is not biblical fasting. There must be a spiritual motivation to qualify a fast as biblical.

It’s important to ensure you’re listening to both the Holy Spirit and your own body in the way you fast. There are many ways to ensure you’re getting the physical nourishment you need while still enjoying the spiritual benefits fasting and prayer offer.

Fast Types

There are different types of fasting, and we recommend prayerfully considering which practice is best for you and researching them prior to starting. Please consult with your medical providers prior to any physical fast to ensure you are remaining healthy and safe.

21-Day Journal

As a church, we always love to provide supplemental resources to help us on our journey. We’ve put together a daily guide that will challenge, motivate, and encourage you over the next three weeks as we read, pray, discuss, and journal through the book of Ephesians.

We’ve designed 21-days of specific scriptures, observations, applications, and prayers for you to journey through along with the rest of the Pine Hills body. We’ve also included space each day to take notes and journal.
