why we pray
At Woodside, we set aside two weeks of each year to devote ourselves to prayer and fasting. We believe there’s great power in one church family across 15 communities lifting up one voice to our God!

how to pray
This week, join your Woodside Family in daily prayer for:
- Our Families
- Our Churches
- Our Communities
how to fast
When we fast out of obedience to God, our hunger for Him grows and we find ourselves more attuned to His leading. In prayer this week, consider how God may prompt you to fast:
- Depending on your level of experience, consider fasting a single meal, fasting from 12pm to 6pm, or from 6am to 6pm each day this week
- If you’re unable to fast from food, fast a distraction such as TV, social media, or a hobby
