What's New...


And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. -- Mark 9 : 29

Derek Prince 1 defines fasting as abstaining from food for spiritual purposes. He says... there is a parallel between praying and fasting. Just as there is individual prayer and collective prayer, so there is also individual fasting and collective fasting. Just as there are normal patterns of prayer and there are times of special prayer, so there should be normal patterns of fasting in the life of every Christian and there should be special times of fasting as the Holy Spirit leads.

The early Methodists regularly practised fasting. For example, John Wesley would not ordain a man to the Methodist ministry unless he would commit himself to fast every Wednesday and Friday until 4:00 p.m. In other words, Wesley regarded it as an absolutely normal part of any Christian minister’s life and discipline.

So with that as background The PRAYER AND FASTING NETWORK ( PAFN ) was started in January, 2002 ... For More on Plans and Purposes of PAFN see About Us ( LINK )

Fasting Group

We are now fasting in a group every week from 7 p.m. Wednesday to 7 p.m. Thursday ... a period of 24 hours without solid food... just fluids. We plan to continue, Lord willing, and invite you to participate in these collective fasts.

If you and/or your friends are interested in joining in during this time, please let us know your intention. Also if you have any specific prayer requests, we can bring them before the Lord at our prayer meetings!
