21 Days of Prayer & Fasting
Every January for 21 Days
January 8-28, 2024
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 and resources. For more information about what fasting is all about, see our resources below. We hope you’ll join us!
We’d love to know what churches are participating! Click the link above to let us know what church you are a part of.

Nightly Prayer Services
January 8 – 28, 2024
Monday – Friday @ 7:00 p.m.
Saturday – Sunday @ 6:00 p.m.
Online or In Person
Hosted by different churches every night
Every night during the 21 days of Prayer and Fasting there will be a service hosted by 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.
Most services are available in person and online.
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 2024 and beyond. You will be encouraged, and you will be an encouragement to others as well!

FAQ: What Should I Fast?
VIDEO: Message From Pastor Bob about Prayer and Fasting
“I feel closer to God than ever… have trusted the Lord all my life, but never as much as I have in the past few months.”
“I felt that there was a greater sense of peace in my home.”
“I quit smoking!!! Yeah… God is great!”
“God showed me how much I can really get done for Him and my family when I don’t let media get in the way.”
“Every year’s fast gets better. The extra time with God is so valuable, in terms of direction and introspection. I wonder ‘why does it take a church wide fast? Why don’t I live like this all year long?’”
“I was tempted a lot but was blessed by the extra time and the calmness that came from this. I also felt like I became more organized and was able to time manage better when I didn’t have the technology thing going on.”
“It was amazing how God helped me realize that with Him, I can give up something that seems hard to live without and let go of control [in other areas of life]. LET OTHERS IN! With God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!”
