pray for: our legacy initiatives

NEW FACILITY

Our local initiative is investing in a new facility for Motion Church.  Prior to the pandemic and after it, we have outgrown the space in capacity and parking and are searching for a prime location to engage our region more effectively.  Giving to the Legacy Offering is helping us have the funds necessary to make this move. This will take a significant amount of money and we know God is going to supply.

CHURCH PLANT

Our national initiative is to help plant Refresh Church in Boise, ID. Boise is a largely unchurched city and the need for a new life-giving church is paramount. This portion of the Legacy Offering is helping resource Refresh to have all the necessary resources to launch well in September 2021.  

BELIZE COMMUNITY

Our international initiative is with Children's Cup. They establish CarePoints in communities around the globe to provide food, eduction, and spiritual discipleship. We are partnering with them to help make those things a reality with a community in Belize, Central America.  This offering has hundreds of thousands of dollars of vision behind it.  Let's pray together and see what God can do!

7 Basic Steps to Successful Fasting and Prayer

Your Personal Guide to Fasting and Prayer

DR. BILL BRIGHT

WHY DO WE FAST?

The goal of a fast

The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives. Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.

The timing of a fast

At Motion, we encourage fasting for 21 days each year in the month of January. This is part of a season of focused prayer as a church family. You may also choose to fast at other times during the year for your own spiritual development. It’s very typical to fast a single meal, a whole day, or three days or more. The timing of your fast is not as important as the strength of your focus on Him as you fast.

types of fasts

Complete Fast

This fast calls for drinking only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

Partial Fast

This fast is sometimes called the Jewish Fast and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

Selective Fast

This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, or bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.

Soul Fast

This fast is common for those who do not have much experience fasting food, who have health issues that prevent them from fasting food, or who wish to refocus certain areas of their life that are out of balance. For instance, someone might select to abstain from using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast, and then choose to carefully bring that element back into their life in an orderly fashion at the conclusion of the fast.
