FastPray is a community of women (and men) who are coming together to pray and fast around the issue of marriage and unintended singleness. Cultural trends, gender-role confusion, marriage/family breakdown, sexual sin, and spiritual darkness have created more unintended singles/delayed marriage than in previous generations.
Here at FastPray, we strive to apply the Gospel to this particular area of brokenness. Bitterness, rigidness, and cynicism can easily well up in our hearts, and we want to fight against that sinful tendency. Our goal is to be an encouraging community where women can be encouraged and turned back towards Gospel truth—especially in the sensitive arena of singleness.
On Mondays, we pray and fast for lunch or longer. Our prayer is that God would bring about marriages that honor Him and that He would move in these three ways.
We ask God to:
- Provide marriages for those that desire it.
- Raise up men to walk boldly into relationships and into leadership roles in homes and the church.
- Change our hearts (as women) in our spiritual and relational lives to make us more like Christ.
We welcome single women, single men, and married couples join us in praying and fasting.
