“World Impact”: It is our expectation that the prophetic utterances that God has sent our way will reach full term in 2018 and that the complete purpose of God in our body, soul, spirit, and circumstances will be evidenced by the realization of what our minds cannot even imagine. Serving as SALT (creating a thirst for God in our world today), and LIGHT (penetrating the darkness and the shadows of death to show the way to Jesus Christ) is God’s purpose for our lives. It is his desire that, daily, we impact the world in a way that brings glory to his name. Our intention to obey the will 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 2018!
– 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 8th – 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.
January 28TH – Break the Fast after Sunday’s service at GSC
