21 Days of Prayer + Fasting

Intentionally Seeking God through Prayer & Fasting

January 8-28, 2024

Every year at Journey, we begin the year with 21 Days of intentionally seeking God through Prayer and Fasting. Make it a goal for the next 21 days to set aside at least 15 minutes each day to read Scripture, journal your thoughts and pray. Also, once a week, walk your neighborhood and pray for your neighbors. Pray for hearts to be open to God.

Join hundreds of Journey people kicking off the new year by spending 21 days with Jesus!

Commit to fasting from certain foods, influences, or other items for 21 days. Fasting is refraining from an appetite for a specific time for a spiritual purpose. Fasting is saying, “My hunger and thirst for God is greater than my desire for ____________.” You can fast from meals, specific foods, technology, social media, alcohol, and anything else you sense God is wanting you to refrain from.

Worship Night

What better way to lean into a time of prayer as a church than to join together for a night of worship? Not only will we sing some of Journey’s favorite worship songs, but we will also participate in a time of prayer and communion.

Kids Challenge

The Kids Challenge is a great way for children to participate in 21 Days of Prayer! Your family can follow along completing each day’s challenge.

We hope your family enjoys seeking God together this January!

Journal Structure

Start each day by finding a quiet place to sit for 15 minutes and fill out your daily exercises.


Life can be stressful, but when you start each day with gratitude, you are deciding to trust in and focus on God’s provision over your life. Gratitude shifts your perspective. It takes what you have and makes it enough, regardless of your circumstances.


Every day there will be Bible verses that focus on principles of growth:

  • in your relationship with God (Week One),
  • with others (Week Two),
  • and toward your future (Week Three).

The Bible says, Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us” (2 Timothy 3:16-17, MSG). This journal will challenge you daily to write down what God is teaching you through the Scripture.

Next Step

We often overestimate how much we can get done in a day and underestimate how much we can get done in three weeks. The key is consistency in the same direction. This section invites you to write down one small step you will take each day to help you to grow with God, others, and your future.


Prayer is the best way to put down our agenda and trust God. End your time of journaling by writing out a prayer for your day.
