Prayer and Fasting (part 2)

We have 3 1/2 weeks left until The Edge Church publicly launches. During this time, Karen and I are fasting different things.

To help give you ideas for how you can fast, I wanted to share what we’re committing to during this time.


4 weeks out – no sweets/candies/desserts; each day spend 15-30 minutes in prayer (in addition to regular prayer times)

3 weeks out – Week 4 commitment + No TV past 9 pm; no ipad/phone mindless games; get to bed by 10 pm; spend 30 minutes in the Bible per day (in addition to current, daily reading times)

2 weeks out – Week 3 & 4 commitments + substituting regular lunches for a fruit and vegetable shake + only eat healthy breakfasts (i.e. oatmeal or eggs).

1 week out – Week 2, 3 & 4 commitments + substitute regular dinners for a fruit & veggie shake.


Get up every morning to spend time with the Lord (6-7 am) – Scripture, devotional, prayer journal

No more desserts/sweets

No mindless social media surfing

Be more intentional about putting phone down

On my knees praying with my husband every night

Will you join us in fasting and praying more intensely as we lead up to launching this church?
