40 Days of Prayer & Fasting Guide
2020 has been a lot. A global pandemic. Economic crisis. Millions at risk of eviction. Covid-19 outbreaks in prisons. Mass deportations and forced sterilizations. Our education system struggling. Police killings, lynching, racial uprisings, and national strife. Widespread wildfires, hurricanes, and environmental devastation. Challenges to our democracy and liberties. The toll of all this grief and upon our physical, mental, and emotional well-being, as well as our relationships.

If you're overwhelmed and feeling compelled to pray and/or fast, you are not alone.

Some pastors and leaders from the Bay Area are organizing 40 days of prayer and fasting leading up to the 2020 Election as a way to align ourselves more fully with the heart of God, and to invite greater spiritual clarity in this season. By fasting, we remove sources of distraction, making room both in our bodies and our spirits for the activity of God.

We pray not just for a particular outcome to the election (though certainly we can do that), but we also pray for deeper healing and repentance to happen- in us and in the Church- that we might turn from evil and more faithfully live out the call of God in our lives and for these times.

If you are interested in participating, please sign up below to receive a copy of the prayer and fasting guide via email. The guide will include an introduction to fasting, ideas on choosing a type of fast, and a prayer theme + resources for each day of the week.

The fast will begin on Thursday, September 24th, and will end on election day, Tuesday, November 3rd.
