Feb. 17 - Apr. 4
“Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert, where for forty days He was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them He was hungry.”
The 2021 Lenten Period begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021 and ends on Resurrection Sunday, April 4, 2021. The period of Lent commemorates the time that Jesus spent in the wilderness immediately after His baptism. Just as Jesus spent time in the wilderness fasting and praying, it is our custom to follow that example as we prepare to embark upon or continue the ministry that God has set before us. Fasting and prayer strengthens our faith, increases discipline, unlocks spiritual power, and prepares us to do fruitful ministry. It helps the believer to be more attentive to God’s voice and the ways of God. It increases spiritual stamina and releases power in the lives of those who spend time in His presence. Thus, it is spiritually beneficial for the individual and for the corporate church of God to commit to this period of consecration in which all those who participate will strive to experience personal spiritual cleansing and growth.

Women's Prayer & Fasting Ministry
The Prayer & Fasting Ministry is one of the most important spiritual components of the Women’s ministry. This Ministry commits to fasting and praying for every aspect of the Women’s Season. The Prayer & Fasting Ministry is dedicated to intercessory prayer for our Leadership, Supervising Chairpersons and their committees, the Women’s Conference, Conference Speakers, Special Events, women’s health issues, and other concerns of the Women’s Ministry.
During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that there is a greater need for praying and fasting on behalf of our sisters, our church, our family, our church leaders, our community, our city, our state and our nation.
The Prayer & Fasting Ministry is committed to fasting two days a week (Monday, Thursday, and any 3rd day chosen by individuals) for Women’s Season. We welcome you to pray and fast alongside us throughout Women’s Season.
