Why Should I Call My Church to a Corporate Fast?

As we embark on a new ministry year, all of us will be seeking a unique breakthrough whether personal, corporate as a church or regional as a movement. God's people have been seeking spiritual breakthrough for generations through the practice of prayer and fasting. Some examples are Moses, David, Isaiah, John the Baptist, Paul and Barnabas just to name of few. Yet our supreme example is our Savior. He set the example by fasting for...

Which usually means Josh is half asleep, stumbling through the kitchen in desperate need for coffee that can't come quickly enough. (That’s right - HE makes the...
