“Kingdom Impact: Power to Influence the World”: It is our expectation that the prophetic utterances that God has sent our way will reach full term in 2019 and that the complete purpose of God in our body, soul, spirit, and circumstances will be evidenced by the radiance and realization of what our minds cannot even imagine. God is the ultimate source of all power and influence…We must therefore use our power and influence with grace and truth by exercising them in service to God and for the good of others.
It is God’s desire that, daily, we impact the world in a way that brings glory to his name. Our intention to obey and abide in the purpose of God this year will be the springboard that causes us to look forward with anticipation to all the great things that God is going to do in the life of GSC and in your life as well. So, as we join together as a church family, let’s take the next 21 days to prepare ourselves for what God has purposed for all of us in 2019!
– Bishop Donald R. Murray
Fasting, for the believer, is a spiritual discipline that is designed to align us with God and His purpose in our lives. As a church, we are fasting together to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, believing that everything else we need be added (MT. 6:33).
The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, which means that we will eliminate some common things from our daily diet, but will have generous options available. We will focus on eating fruits and vegetables that are pure and simple. We have included a list of foods to eat and foods to avoid. If you have any condition which would prohibit you from being a part of the Daniel Fast, there are other options. Choose something from your daily routine. (i.e. specific foods or beverages, television, other technology, etc.) and fast in that manner for the next 21 days. Remember, the details are not as important as the spirit in which you participate.
*If you have any known medical conditions or suspect such conditions, consult your doctor before beginning the fast.
Monday, January 7th – Begin the “Daniel Fast”
At dinner, begin to introduce meals with pure foods of fruits and vegetables. This plan will continue for the next 20 days.
Sunday, January 27th – Break the Fast after Sunday’s service at GSC
