Consecration Fast


We are encouraging those who are part of MHNaz to take a "consecration fast" during lent which begins Wednesday, February 10 (Ash Wednesday), and ends Sunday, March 27 (Easter).  The purpose of our fast is to set aside our normal evening and early morning activities to devote and set apart ourselves to God and God-focused activities.  We are to spend time with Him, seeking out what He would like us to do to better serve Him.  The word "consecration" says it best.  It is the act of devoting or setting apart anything to the worship or service of God.  During this time, we are devoting ourselves to the Lord's holy purposes as we see in Joshua 3:5:  "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you" (NIV).


Before you read too much more, download one of the Consecration Fast booklets below if you didn't get one from church:

The fast is for approximately 12 hours.  It begins around 6:00 p.m. and goes through 6:00 a.m.  You determine what would be the best activities during your fasting period.  Ask the Lord what He wants you to do and where He would like you to focus.  This is to be flexible to your journey with the Lord.  Prayer and Bible reading (listening) should be daily, especially since these activities are the foundation of our relationship with the Lord. Here are some ideas to help build your fast:

  • No snacking
  • No TV/social media/internet
  • Family praying and/or Bible reading
  • Personal worship
  • Christian music
  • Christian books (stay away from fiction)
  • Silence/listening
  • Scripture memory
  • Etc.


Be a disciple too. Find a friend or family member to do the fast with you.  Contact them throughout the week to see how they are doing and encourage them.  Meeting them for coffee or lunch. Use Sunday to spend time getting to know them.  Listen to the Lord and come along side them.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the church.  We are very excited to hear what the Lord will be doing in your lives!!
