From the beginning of VIVE Culture, we have made it a priority to seek God first in prayer. We do this collectively as a community in January through 14 Days of Prayer and Fasting as we begin a new year. Together, we faithfully seek God first, trusting in Him alone to create a lasting impact in our lives, city, church, and world.

Different Types Of Fasts In The Bible

Remember, your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and, most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do. There is not a one-size-fits-all model. It's more about the spirit of it rather than the law of it. It's fueled by a relationship with Jesus. 

COMPLETE FAST

In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option. You cut out all foods.

14 Days Of Prayer Is For You

If you sense God has more for your life, 14 Days of Prayer is a great place to start believing Him for all that He has for you. As you practice seeking Him first, He will move on your behalf like never before. You will start to see the power of prayer that impacts your relationships, work, family, and every area of your life. The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Not necessarily to get more stuff but for God to get more of us. We would love for you to be part of 14 Days of Prayer. 

WHY FAST?

Training Our Flesh to Discipline

True freedom comes from having the power to say “no” to things that are not good for us. The enemy deceives us into thinking that God wants to hold us back, but God actually wants to break us free.

Training Our Bodies to Pray

As we fast we make room for God to speak. Our prayers go beyond just words. Even when we don’t know what to say God interprets our tears and acknowledges our vulnerability as prayers.

Training Our Hearts to Compassion

Fasting is a response to injustice. As we fast our hearts are lead to a place of understanding the brokenness of the world around us. We don’t always fast to receive for ourselves. We can fast to intercede for others.
