50 Days of Prayer and Fasting

main image

FFC's 50 Days of Prayer and Fasting has a simple goal: That God would move our heart and move our hands. We'd like to accomplish this goal by having an FFCer specifically praying and fasting one day out of the 50 days, beginning October 1st and concluding on Harvest Offering on November 20th. Yes, we're looking for at least 50 FFCers willing to fast one day (or more) during the 50 days. Will you embrace this spiritual discipline as we show God our true desire is for him and him alone?

If so, simply use the form below to indicate your willingness. You'll receive an email afterwards indicating which day (i.e., day 1, day 12, day 32, etc.) we have assigned to you, as well as the date of that day. If you prefer to specify your day and date, you can do so in the form below.

We, as a church body, want to be dedicated to praying and fasting, with the passion of God moving our hearts and moving our hands.

Please join us. You can sign up below:
