Prayer & Fasting

Esther Fast: September 14-16, 2020

Join us for 3 days dedicated to praying and fasting for our nation

Our primary focus as a congregation (along with other congregations) is praying for our nation; although, it’s appropriate to pray about the things that seem impossible in our own lives.

  • For an eradication of COVID-19
  • For Shalom (God’s peace) in our nation
  • For the direction our nation is headed and for the upcoming elections – for God’s will, not our own

In fact, I’m calling you, if you’re healthy enough to do so, to eat no solid food on those three days while spending as much time in prayer that you possibly can.

Just like the Nation of Israel was praying for their very lives, we need to pray that way for the United States of America.

21 Days of Prayer & Fasting

Every January for 21 Days

Northpark is committed to beginning the new year with 21 days of prayer and fasting.  This spiritual practice helps us begin our new year with a focus on God and what he wants for us individually and as a church.

Many churches in the Fresno and Clovis area have also committed to this practice as well and we are excited to partner with them for our Fasting events. For more information about what fasting is all about, see our resources below. We hope you’ll join us!

Nightly Prayer Services

Every night during the 21 days of Prayer and Fasting there will be a service at a different church allowing us to experience the depth and diversity of congregations across our community while acknowledging that we are One Church. These services will incorporate prayer and worship and are a great opportunity for the Church of Fresno/Clovis to gather together in unity.

We invite you to join us for 1, or 2, or all 21 as we pray for our community and believe God together for powerful results throughout 2020 and beyond. You will be encouraged, and you will be an encouragement to others as well!
