26 Compelling Reasons Why A Fasting and Prayer Challenge Is So-ul Needed

In January, I posted “How Fasting And Prayer Gives You Superhero Powers,” and it was a hit!

This Fasting and Prayer Challenge is a response to that blog post, I hope you join us! In preparation for this fasting and prayer challenge, which runs from March 26th – April 2nd, I clearly heard…

“It’s time to finish what you started!”

Are you great at starting something, but struggle with finishing?

Maybe, if you’re like me, when you do get close to the finish line, some anxiety creeps in? Well, what better time, than now, Lent Season, which is for followers of Christ, the observance of Jesus’ 40 days in the wilderness, to reflect, to release, to refresh, and possibly to repent for anything that is hindering you from sPrInGiNg forward?

If you’re not convinced that a fasting and prayer challenge is So-uL needed FOR YOU, maybe this list will convince you otherwise.

26 Compelling Reasons Why A Fasting and Prayer Challenge is So-ul needed:

  1. You’re in a funk and don’t know why?!
