The 40 Day Prayer & Fasting themed “Triumphant Entry” is our New Year Fast. This starts the year for us. Starts November 23 yearly. There will be 2 ‘permissive’ breaks in between: 2 days in November & 2 days in December, but this journey will end on the 40th day, which is December 26th. This means you can purposefully take breaks to spend quality time with family for a total of 2 days in November and in days in December. However, I encourage you to continue in the Spirit until you cross over to the next year.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights…” (Matthew 4:1-2)
