40 Days

Of Spiritual Hunger

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Matthew 5:6

The 'Why' Behind The 'What'

Spiritual Hunger is necessary for God to do what He wants to do. He knows the desires of our hearts and everything about us, but He still wants us to have a hunger. God doesn't just move on our behalf because of the needs we have in our life, He moves according to our supernatural, expectant faith.

We are praying that as you take on 40 days of spiritual hunger, you would begin to develop a spiritual hunger in your own life that would see your faith grow and relationship with Jesus deepen. Challenge yourself to do something different over these next 40 days and see how God can transform you.

Challenge Yourself

Read something from the word every day

Do whatever works for you, start a reading plan, read a chapter a day – do whatever you can to get into the rhythm of reading every day!

Increase prayer by 1 minute each day

It’s as simple as that! Challenge yourself to pray everyday and each day that you do it, increase the duration by 1 minute.


day 1: 1 minute
day 2: 2 minutes
day 3: 3 minutes

Don’t look at social media

For the first hour of your day!
Social media is such a big distraction in the world we’re in today. Make a decision every morning when you wake up, to keep off social media for the first hour – use this time to pray, read, and seek God.

Have worship on

From when you wake until you get to work or study, incorporate worship music into your daily routine.

Fast once a week

Whether it’s a whole day without food or fasting a single meal, make a decision to spend time with God and pray when you are not eating.

Pray with your spouse (or your parents) each day

Build each other up, pray over family, pray over needs, and join in faith to believe for miracles.

Deliberately encourage a different person each day

Proverbs 27:17 proclaims:
As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another”.

Encouraging someone will not only bless them, it will do something in you!

Come to church every week

This might be normal for you, but if it’s not – make an effort to be in church every single week – there’s nothing like being in the room and building community together

Tithe & watch what God does

God doesn’t want your money, He wants your heart.
We believe the top competitor for our devotion to Jesus is money (Matthew 6:24). Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. We believe you can’t out give God, so when you’re trusting Him with your tithes and offerings we know that He will bless the rest (Proverbs 3:9-10 and Malachi 3:10-12). We think Christians should be the most generous people (2 Corinthians 9:6) on earth, and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church (Ephesians 3:10).

Bring one person to church for the first time

One of our core cultures as a church is ‘bringing’. Don’t just invite someone, go out of your way to bring someone to church who has never been before – their life could change forever.
