21 Days of Prayer

January 11 – January 31

Morning Prayer 7am-9am Monday-Friday

21 Days of Prayer is a season in which we are choosing to make seeking God through prayer and fasting a special focus. Whether or not your schedule allows you to join us during the weekday morning prayer, we encourage the whole church to pray and fast throughout these three weeks.

Every weekday morning we invite you to join us at Creekwood Church where you can expect a family-friendly/come-and-go prayer environment. There will be worship music playing, prayer cards on the stage for you to pray over, and prayer focus cards to help you engage with God’s word. Bring your bible, bring a book or journal, and a heart to seek after God.

Family Prayer Night

Family Prayer Night with live worship

Monday, January 25 | 6pm-7pm | Creekwood Church

Every Monday night during 21 Days of Prayer is Family Prayer Night. Come to Creekwood Church to make prayer and engaging with God a family event. Engage in prayer and devotionals as a family in a powerful spiritual environment.

Fasting

The goal of fasting and prayer is to get closer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God, and prepares our hearts for all of the good things God desires to bring into our lives.

We encourage you to seek God in prayer and let your decisions about what to fast come from Him. We believe that praying and seeking God and giving Him our best at the first of the year sets the tone for the rest of 2021.

Types of Fasting

Full Fast

Drink only liquids. You establish the number of days.

Daniel Fast

Eat no meat, no sweets and no bread. Drink water and juice. Eat fruits and vegetables.

3 Day & Partial Fast

This can be a Full Fast, Daniel Fast, or give up at least one item of food. From 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. (or sun up to sundown). You can select from three types of fasting: Full Fast, Daniel Fast, or give up at least one item of food.

Media/Entertainment Fast

Maybe it’s television, video games, or spending too much time on internet social sites. It could mean putting your phone away for awhile or not seeing that new movie out. It will look different for everyone.
