SERMON NOTES/PRAYER CONCERNS

Fasting
Fasting for the Lenten Season
This year, God has called us to Raise Leaders and Develop Disciples. I am calling a church-wide fast this Lenten season. Fasting is a spiritual discipline designed to deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ. We do not fast to lose weight; we fast to be empowered by Jesus Christ. This year— 2013, God will reveal God’s purpose and plan in your life, if you dare fast, pray, study, and learn the power of quiet time. Jesus had to steal away from the crowd and spend time with his Father in the mountains to pray, study, reflect, meditate and center his spirit. If fasting and prayer were the disciplines of Jesus should not be followed by us? Join with us this season and witness a breakthrough as we fast, pray, study, reflect meditate and learn the power of Quiet time. Question: I have never fasted before? Answer: Consult your doctor first! Fasting is not the removal of all food from your diet. Fasting is learning to discipline your mind, body and spirit to remove “something” from your life or diet you know hinders your ability to function at your highest capacity. Question: Is fasting biblical? Answer: Fasting is biblical. Throughout the Old and New Testament, fasting was used by the people of God to prepare for a spiritual challenge, hear God’s voice before making a major decision, or removing destructive forces in your life. Fast #1 - Fasting to confront destructive forces February 13 – February 19 - Eat all your meals before 6:00 p.m. February 20 – February 26 - Eat only 2 meals before 6:00 p.m. February 27 – March 5 - Eat only 1 meal a day March 6 – March 12 - Drink only juices, water and/or tea March 13 – March 19 - Eat only fruits and vegetables before 6:00 p.m. March 20 – March 31 - Slowly begin to add meat to your diet

Fasting
Fast #2 – The Daniel Fast (Taken from the book of Daniel). When Daniel was captured by the Babylonians, he asked of the Babylonians if he, along with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, could fast, eating only fruits and vegetables, so they would be prepared to confront the Babylonian king. February 13 – February 19 - All meals before 6:00 p.m. February 20 – February 26 - Eat only two meals a day before 6:00 p.m. February 27 – March 5 - Eat only fruits and vegetables before 6:00 p.m. March 6 – March 12 - Eat one meal a day before 6:00 p.m., meat may be added. March 13 – March 19 - Eat two meals a day before 6:00 p.m., meat may be added March 20 – March 31 - Eat three meals a day before 6:00 p.m. Fast #3 - Removing certain foods or items from your diet or life. One type of fasting is to remove certain foods from your diet, such as fried foods, sweets, sodas or refined sugar and/or flour. Please seek the advice of your primary care provider/doctor before beginning a fast that involves restricting food/calories and/or medication. They can help you design a fasting plan that protects your health and well-being. This is extremely important if you are pregnant or have a medical condition. Medical condition examples include, but are not limited to those who have a chronic disease such as diabetes, HIV/AIDS, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, recent surgery, etc.

RAISING LEADERS and DEVELOPING DISCIPLES
January • Matthew 16:24 (NLT) Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me." February • Luke 4:18-19 (NIV) The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. March • Luke 10:19 (NIV) I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. April • Romans 10:1-2 (NLT) Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. May • 1 Corinthians 13:8 (NIV) Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. June • Romans 5:8 (NIV) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. July • Philippians 4:13 (NLT) For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. August • Jeremiah 1-7 (NLT) The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you." September • Isaiah 1:3 (NLT) Even an ox knows its owner, and a donkey recognizes its master’s care—but Israel doesn’t know its master. My people don’t recognize my care for them. October • Isaiah 40:29 (KJV) He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. November • John 17:21 (KJV) That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. December • Matthew 1:23 (KJV) Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
