Start 2014 Off Right

I attend Church of the Highlands (a Multi-campus non-denominational Church). Since this Church launched, the first 21 Days of each new year has been designated as "21 Days of Prayer & Fasting." Every weekday morning, at every campus, members gather at 6:00am to pray & worship. The reason behind the "21 Days" is related  to the belief that you can create or break a habit in just 21 days.

Prayer is your communication device with God that allows you to have a two-way conversation and hear what He has to say about the direction that you need to go or the things that He has in store for you. It is your medium to express your thoughts and concerns to Him, although He is all-knowing. The "fast" is somewhat of a misnomer. There are those that will do a literal fast of foods. The purpose if a fast isn't a diet tool. A fast is to take the focus off of "worldly" things and re-align your thoughts and desires on heavenly things. There are people who do a media-fast. The premise behind fasting is replacing those things that have become more important or more consuming of our time that belong to God. Fasting is between you and God. You know what things are robbing God of His place in your life.

Let's start 2014 off with refocusing our time. If you would like to check out a service from the comfort of your home, the services are streamed live online at
