We exist to help people like you mobilize your community for strategic seasons of prayer & fasting.
As many of you know, Awaken Nashville has organized a large city-wide fast in the month of February over the course of the last two years (2019 & 2020). We have done this by equipping leaders like you to equip their churches for a month of strategic prayer and fasting on behalf of the city. Over the last two years, we have seen God move in tremendous ways as hundreds of churches, and tens of thousands of people have joined together to pray for our city.
We believe prayer and fasting play a key role in advancing God’s kingdom, and the events of 2020 have only strengthened that conviction!
However, over the last ten months, as our team has sought God and spoken with many of you we have sensed God inviting us to lean into the month of February 2021 a bit differently than in years past.
This year our team will not be distributing city-wide prayer packets or leading large events during the month of February. Instead, we are encouraging each church to call their people to a time of prayer and fasting (some time in January or February) in a way that best speaks to what God is doing in the context of each local church.
The church I have the joy of serving will be fasting from January 31-February 28. We have created a simple prayer calendar and a few daily prayer points to guide our people through the fast. If your church would like to use these prayer resources that our church will be using during this year’s fast, then simply let me know via email and we will gladly share what we have put together with you.
In addition, we are going to host several smaller gatherings during February focused on bringing pastors and leaders together to seek God on behalf of our city. Whether you choose to lead your church in a time of prayer and fasting or not, we would love to have you join us for these strategic times of prayer. More info and dates to be released in early 2021.
If you would like to fast with us from January 31-February 28 then simply let us know so we can encourage one another along the way. If you have any other needs please don’t hesitate to let us know.
You are amazing.
Your service to God is a gift beyond measure, and we love you deeply.
Dave & Sydney Clayton on behalf of the Awaken Nashville Team
