In this episode titled "Declaration of Dependence," Martha shares a sermon that she preached several years ago exploring the profound impact that prayer and fasting can have on our personal lives, families, and our nation.

We'll be discussing how to approach fasting with flexibility and understanding, and how to involve the entire family in this sacred practice, teaching our children the power of prayer.

She shares the different types of fasting, including a soul fast, which offers a retreat from life's distractions like TV and social media, allowing us to hear God's voice more clearly. You'll hear about her personal fasting journey, from partial to water-only fasts, with a focus on spiritual growth above all.

This message will help you to join in our 21 days of prayer and fasting to kickstart the year.
