21 Day Church Challenge

March 23 - April 12

21 Day Church Challenge

21 Day Church Challenge


Hello and welcome to the 21-Day River of Life Church Challenge! 


During the 21 days prior to Easter 2020, you will be able to read, watch or listen to a devotion that will bless you each day of this special season at River of Life!  During the 21 days, I hope you’ll commit to read your Bible, Pray, Fast and Worship “…LIKE NEVER BEFORE!”  I hope that you will be challenged and willing to express your Faith and Share your life in Christ with someone.  I know God will use these 21 days of Challenge and Devotion to heal areas of your life!  


Let’s believe together that God will restore all that the enemy has stolen or destroyed in your life!


God has already begun His work and has been so good to us!  We are seeing His Hand move in our services and He truly is doing great things.  We are hearing many testimonies of God’s goodness and His healing hand on people’s lives!  I believe that if we come together during these 21 days to pray, fast, read our Bibles, and encourage each other, we’ll see Him do miracles in our lives.


As Easter approaches, we find ourselves thinking about the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We must always remember that Christ’s life purpose was to offer himself as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind.  The Bible says that Jesus Christ became sin for us so that we could be forgiven and become righteous in God’s sight (2 Corinthians 5:21).  Jesus was so certain of His purpose in restoring mankind to the Father that He predicted when and how He would die. (Matthew 26:2)


As you begin this challenge, the enemy is going to try to deceive you, trick you, distract you, and even disrespect your time with God as you pray, read your Bible, and fast.  Don’t let it happen!  I believe God has given us direction to follow Him with all our hearts “….LIKE NEVER BEFORE” because He wants to pour out His Spirit on us like never before!  Let’s be in the right position and place to see what God is going to do!


God Bless,


Pastor Rick and Julie Carlson





Day #10, Wednesday, April 1, 2020


I hope you can start the 3-day coordinated time of fasting and prayer today!  Whatever way of fasting you have found that works for you, I hope you will participate for the entire 3 days!  Again, we will be fasting today, Thursday and Friday this week.


Please read Colossians 1:1-29 over and over today.  Then as you are fasting and praying, pray these verses out before the Lord.  For instance, you may want to pray out this chapter this way:

Day #9, Tuesday, March 31, 2020


It is my greatest desire that we all participate in “3 Days of Prayer and Fasting” in some way that is fitting and physically appropriate for everyone.  I understand the differing physical needs that we all have.  Here are some fasting options that are somewhat easy to accomplish or can be used by most everyone participating in this 21 Day Church Challenge!  If you have another option for fasting that you like better, feel free to do your plan.  These are just suggestions.

Day #8, Monday, March 30, 2020


Please begin today and each day this week by reading Joel 2:12-32.  Today we will start talking about a short time of fasting and prayer that will begin on Wednesday, April 1st.  We will fast and pray for 3 days this week and next week!  Tomorrow I’ll lay out the types of fasting and the options that will help you find the right one for you.  Here are a few things I’ve been blessed to know about fasting:

Day #7, Sunday, March 29, 2020


Good Morning!  The devotion will be given this morning at River of Life! We do not know exactly how services will be conducted but I hope you will allow God to minister to you through the Word of God and by the power of the Holy Spirit!


Day #6, Saturday, March 28, 2020


Easter is approaching fast! It’s April 12 and this year I am challenging our church to turn our hearts towards fasting and prayer.  We’ll talk more about that on Monday.


Did you know that the number one enemy in our path to finding God’s will is having faith without action?


“Doing the will of God requires taking action. 

Not just inspiration, but perspiration.”


Great words of encouragement and challenge in times when God calls us to step into His will.
