The Men of Fight Club Fast every First Friday of the month. We would love to have you join us

Why do we do this? Below are some great reasons. 
 

-Fasting Leads to Greater Intimacy

We deny our carnal nature in order to fulfill the desires of God. What He wills for our lives can be found through fasting and prayer.

Our spirit and soul experiences joy because of fasting. It’s a decision to momentarily die to our flesh to fulfill the greater things of a mighty God who seeks us.

“The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day, {Mark 2:20}.

Know that the sacrificial elements of fasting always incurs eternal benefits. There are those we want to win for Christ this year. Our temporary physical discomfort has spiritual rewards.

 

-We Surrender Our Comfort to Gain Spiritual Clarity

Our  culture can lead us to becoming numb to what matters to God, yet praying through a fast challenges sharpens our spiritual discernment.

  • We can fast from things: social media, television, food, even a negative mindset.

  • We can fast for things: those yet surrendered to Christ, our local church, and our neighborhoods.

We gain wisdom and guidance through fasting. We are able to discern the will of God through fasting and deep prayer.

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God,” {Romans 12:2}.

 

-Opens Our Hearts to Spiritual Revival

We kindle Holy Spirit fire as we fast and pray. We become change agents and intercessors for the broken and hurting during a fast. Our hearts are revived and refreshed spiritually because of it.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem…and to the end of the earth,” {Acts 1:8}.

Empowerment flows when we pray and fast. We are that much more able to press into the greatest commission of all—gaining souls for an eternal harvest, (see Matthew 28).

 

-Prayer and Fasting Breaks Satanic Strongholds

When the Jesus’s disciples were unable to deliver a young boy of an evil spirit, Jesus told them, “This kind cannot come out, except by prayer,” (see Mark 9:29). Praying while fasting positions us victoriously.

Through deep prayer we can combat spiritual opposition and satanic strongholds.

When difficulties arise, Christ-Followers have the ability to harness the potential of the Holy Spirit through fasting and prayer.

Our barren hearts are refreshed and revived when we fast and pray. We are better equipped to dealing with the momentary trials we’ll face on earth because we’re aligned with God, his angels, and the power of the Holy Spirit.

“Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness…to let the oppressed go free and to break every yoke?” {Isaiah 58:6}.

We are equipped with dunamis might or strength (See Strong’s Concordance 1411) to combat the enemy’s opposition.
