21 Days of Prayer

“The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come.”

Luke 4:18-19 NLT
What is 21 Days of Prayer?

From the beginning of Legacy Church, we have made it a priority to seek God first in prayer. We do this collectively as a church in January and September through 21 Days of Prayer. These two months are intentional, as they begin new seasons of the year. We know that when we take the time to seek God intentionally, God reveals His heart and changes ours. These 21 days are important for laying a solid foundation for the season ahead by putting God first and trusting him. Join us as we intentionally seek God in prayer and believe for Him to move abundantly above our expectations. We invite everyone to participate and even fast if you are called and able. We ask each one to pray for your own spiritual life and development, our church, and our nation.

JANUARY 1-21, 2024

Welcome to the transformative journey of the 21 Days of Prayer! We will kick off on January 1, 2024 with a greeting and prayer from our lead pastors. During the rest of the 21 days, we will hold online prayer services every weekday January 2nd through the 19th from 6-7am as well as three in-person services at 7pm on Wednesday, January 3, 10, & 17. 

On January 1st, be watching social media as we embark on 21 days of intentional prayer and reflection. Each day beginning January 2nd, we’ll meet online and explore different aspects of God’s favor, guided by the powerful Gospel of Luke. Through this, we will deepen our understanding of His favor, see it manifest in our lives, and become carriers of His love and grace.

This season of prayer is for everyone, regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey. Let’s come together as one church family, seeking God’s favor and embracing the abundant blessings He has in store for us.

May this year’s 21 Days of Prayer be a time of renewal, clarity, and personal and collective growth. We anticipate divine encounters, life-changing wins, and a deepening of our faith. Together, we will step into a “Time of Favor” that will leave a lasting legacy in our lives and community. Welcome to a Year of Divine Favor.

Prayer with fasting

During the January season of 21 Days of Prayer, we encourage fasting as a spiritual next step that can bring clarity and revelation into your life. You can also choose to fast at other times of the year as you seek God.
The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives. 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.
At Legacy, we encourage fasting for 21 days each year in the month of January. This is part of 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting, a season of focused prayer as a church family. You may also choose to fast at other times during the year for your own spiritual development. It’s very typical to fast a single meal, a whole day, or three days or more. The timing of your fast is not as important as the strength of your focus on God as you fast.

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.

  • Complete Fast: In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.
  • Selective Fast: This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the
  • Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.
  • Partial Fast: This fast is sometimes called the “Jewish Fast” and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.
  • Soul Fast: This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.
