Special Initiatives

Fasting for God’s Favor


Each January, it is estimated that as many as one million American Christians may be participating in the forgotten discipline of fasting. The early church fasted, we are told, two days a week. Each year, Church of God congregations will be encouraged to join that growing army from January 10 – 31, in 21 days of fasting.

In 2016 this initiative grew to include multiple denominations in the RESET OUR GENERATION effort. We began the New Year with 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting with Jesus followers and thousands of churches across the nation. This dedicated time allows us, as believers, across denominational lines, to join in prayer for revival in the church and awakening in the culture.

The initiative included a nightly Virtual Prayer Meeting through the 21 days with a special guest offering a prayer challenge and a national prayer leader leading a segment of prayer. In addition, there were fresh reports in a ‘Look What God is Doing!’ segment. And a Praying for a RESET report.

The opportunity to unite in prayer for ourselves, for our churches, our cities and the world, is intended as a beginning for a year filled with opportunities for revival and awakening. Learn more at americapray.net.
