JANUARY 22-29, 2023
We are inviting our church body to journey with us through a week of fasting and consecration to start 2023. This will start Sunday, January 22 at 5:00 pm and end Friday, January 27th, at 5:00 pm before our revival services. We believe that when God’s people give up comfort, in this case food and culture, and gather in His name, He will pour out His presence on us and life-change will happen. We will also be taking time to intentionally pray for what God has for us in 2023 as we go after the year of Hope.
What is Consecration?
Every year at Waymaker.Church, we start our year by fasting and praying. What does Biblical fasting look like? Biblical fasting is abstaining from food for a spiritual purpose. Why? Because physical hunger deepens our spiritual hunger. As we start this year, we want to begin by removing distractions and deepening our spiritual hunger, so that we can focus on what it truly means to encounter God with His gathered church. This year, we are also asking everyone to “fast” from cultural norms such as social media, TV, entertainment, etc. so that you can focus on what God has for you during Revival Week.
Types of Fasts
Abstaining from All Food
Example: Jesus "ate nothing during those days and at the end of them was hungry" (Luke 4:2)
Basics: No food and mostly water to drink.
Abstaining from one or two meals a day.
Basics: Choose a *meal(s) you normally eat and abstain from it once a day during the fasting period.
*If you normally do not eat breakfast or another meal, don’t count that as abstaining. Make a true sacrifice.

PRAISE RALLY | Sunday, January 29 at 6 pm
Here at Waymaker.Church, we believe that prayer ignites movement. The act of prayer is simple, yet profound. Prayer gives us direct access to our Heavenly Father so that we can hear His heart, come to Him with what is on our minds, and give Him the praise He is due. Our Prayer Chapel will be open in the main auditorium Monday-Thursday from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm as well as during any events and services.
Join us in-person at our Hooper Road Campus Monday, January 23; Tuesday, January 24; and Thursday, January 26 at 12:00 pm for Noonday Prayer where we will go deeper with our daily devotional content.
