What is Corporate Prayer and Fasting?

Corporate Prayer and Fasting is a special time for the New Life Apostolic Church congregation.  This is a time of repentance, renewal, and revival to develop within the body of Christ.  Various forms of fasting are permissible and encouraged, as there may be health conditions or complicated work schedules involved for some individuals.  There are many examples of corporate fasting in the Bible where groups of people fasted and prayed for a common goal.

Joel 1:14 Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders [and] all the inhabitants of the land [into] the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD,

Acts 13:2-3 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. 3 And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid [their] hands on them, they sent [them] away.

Esther 4:16 Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which [is] not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.

Ezra 8:23 So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was intreated of us.

According to Bishop J. Fortino, President of the Apostolic Assemblies of Faith in Christ Jesus:

Nothing important ever happens without prayer and nothing significant happens without fasting. Even more so, nothing creative happens without fasting and prayer. We live in a time where we have to be creative. We need new ideas, new methods, and a new structure that drives us to achieve the mission statement that supposedly unites us all. Exalt Christ, Evangelize the World, and Equip the Church. Today more than ever we need for God to give us: Wisdom, Guidance, and Unity in Mission and Purpose.
