Prayer-n-Fast for 2022

A Prayer Guide for 2022 ...

God answers prayer!
And, He has called us into a relationship with Him, where we also operate as partners with each other and Him to make right the family. Our partnership includes a growing relationship with Him that glorifies Him by producing fruit for Him--where fruit is a metaphor Christ used to represent the character of Christ, the conduct of Christ and converts to Christ.

We're asking God to help us bear fruit for Him. Specifically, taking the next 14 days to pray and fast, asking God four things for ourselves, our family, and our church. Those four prayer requests are below.

Wednesday, January 19th, we launched this season of prayer and fasting. We're using journals to write what we hear God say on Sundays, Wednesdays and other times of prayer or other times through people. Then, Wednesday February 2nd, we will use our Wednesday prayer and worship time to thank God for speaking and share what He said to us. After that, it is "go time!"

Will you partner with us, as we partner with God, in this effort?
Send us a note below or via email ( and let us know.

We will be sharing periodically #turningpoints, helps, devotionals, prayers and encouragements as we seek God for specificity and success as we proceed. Check our social media pages (@TPBFChurch), church emails and the church app to receive everything.

So, download and/or print the card below. Put it in your bible, your bathroom, your kitchen--wherever to remind you to fast and pray. And we will be looking forward to hearing from you.

We are praying with and for you. Please pray for each other also.

Till that Day,

Pastor Carl.

A word on fasting ...

Fasting is NOT to get things from God, but to GET NEAR God.

Fasting is not always easy, but once you get started it can be refreshing.  All you need to get started is a desire to strengthen your relationship with God.

The first step to any fast is admitting your need for God.  Giving up food is an outward action for an inward commitment.  Fasting for God requires sacrifice and discipline.

Fasting also helps remove obstacles that so easily get in the way of fully focusing on Him.

Removing the food or WHATEVER you choose to give up within the specified time frame will help free your mind, so you can meditate on God.

In order to be effective, you must also pray during that time.  Praying to God and fasting is a powerful weapon against adversity.

A fast for God doesn’t have to be all day.  It can be for one meal or not smoking that cigarette, giving up that favorite candy bar etc.  Basically, you will be sacrificing something that is important to you.

Some results of fasting are the tearing down strongholds in your life and the lives of your loved ones.  It also causes divine power to loose the chains of bondage and set the captive free.

If you want to see God’s power move in your life, remain committed for the full period of time. During the fast, it’s not necessary to tell everyone what you’re doing.  If you fast for man’s praise and not God’s approval, then your fast is done in vain.

Jesus Christ wrote in Matthew 6:16-18, “Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of sad countenance; for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast.  Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.”  “But, thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; That thou, appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.”
