Research shows that it takes 21 days to develop a new habit. There is something powerful about doing something every day for 21 days that helps us develop a new lifestyle.
For example, Dr. Maxwell Maltz, a plastic surgeon who wrote the bestseller Psycho-Cybernetics, noticed that it took 21 days for amputees to cease feeling phantom sensations in the amputated limb.
Research also shows that brain circuits take engrams (memory traces), and produce neuroconnections and neuropathways only if they are bombarded for 21 days in a row. This means that our brain does not accept new data for a change of habit unless it is repeated each day for 21 days (without missing a day).
So I am challenging all of us to take the next 21 days and give our first and best to God. January 5-25 is our 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting. Many of us will be doing the Daniel Fast -- this is where you eat primarily fruits and vegetables and you cut out the meats and the sweets. (for more information, go to MarthaFry.com). We will also be praying together every day in addition to your personal prayer time. Monday through Friday we will pray at 6:00 am and Saturday at 9:00 am at C3 Church. If you can't make it physically you can join us online for a live stream at www.c3church.com. Then we will gather on Sundays at 9:00 am and 11:00 am for our worship celebration.
I'm also excited that we are partnering with my friend, Pastor Daniel Floyd, with Lifepoint Church in Fredericksburg, VA.

I can't wait to see all that God does through these 21 Days! I am expecting God to do exceedingly and abundantly beyond what I can imagine or think! This is a year of Victory for you and for our church family!
