Experience Spiritual Renewal at Our Christian Meditation, Prayer, and Fasting Retreat

Join us for a profound journey of faith. Schedule a sacred time for yourself to meditate, pray, and fast during a transformative weekend retreat from February 9 – 11, 2024, at Foehliage Retreat Center in a serene setting in Maryland.

Unlock the Power of Prayer and Fasting

“So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer.” – Ezra 8:23

This scripture reminds us of the immense power of fasting and prayer to invoke divine guidance, strength, and blessings. We invite you to explore these spiritual practices during our upcoming retreat, led by experienced facilitators and teachers.

We will begin our thirty-six-hour fast on Friday at 8 p.m. and the fast will end on Sunday at 8 a.m. You will receive instructions on how to start and maintain your fast.  We will only fast from food; water and juices will be available. There will be a medical professional on-site to support you.

We will offer light refreshments on Friday before 8 p.m. and a light breakfast on Sunday at 8 a.m.
