At City United Church, one of our core values is Life Change, and we know that true life change is not possible without first seeking God in prayer. We will do this collectively as a church in January through 21 Days of Prayer.
City United is facing some big decisions in 2020, and only the Lord can intercede for us. We are also asking God to Revitalize us as a people and to bring us closer to Him.

Daily Reading Guide
Ephesians chapters 1-6
Each day you will be reading from the book of Ephesians where the Apostle Paul writes to Christians and reminds them of who we are in Christ and who Christ is in us. Another way to put it is Me in Christ, Christ in me.

Prayer and 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.
In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.
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.
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.
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.
