“7-Day Fast of Repentance & Purification”
(Spirit, Soul, & Body)
February 21st midnight – February 28th midnight, 2010
“Those whom I [dearly and tenderly] love, I tell their faults and convict and convince and
reprove and chasten [I discipline and instruct them].So be enthusiastic and in earnest
and burning with zeal and repent [changing your mind and attitude].”
(Revelation 3:19 Amplified)
“He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of
Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord offerings in
righteousness. Then will the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasing to the Lord as
in the days of old and as in ancient years.”
(Malachi 3:3-4 Amplified)
Why Do We Fast?
In the Old Testament, when the Nation of Israel sought to hear God’s voice
clearly, repent before the Lord, or conquer an enemy, they engaged in a collective
fast (Daniel 9:3-5, Deuteronomy 9:15-18, 2Chronicles 20:3-4). Within the New
Testament we see that Jesus not only embarked on a 40 day fast before
beginning His ministry, but He also expected his followers to fast (Matthew 6:16-
18; 9:14-17). During LRFWC’s 7 days of fasting & praying, it will be a wonderful
time of hearing God, receiving guidance and continuing to maximize our potential
for God’s Glory.
