Ok, so here’s the rules… It’s pretty simple. Blackout is a fast from the web, social media and your smartphone. It’s about switching off to make a big noise in prayer to God for those silenced for following Jesus. The point is to get rid of the distractions.So…
• No social networking
• No emails, texts, instant messaging
• No web streaming of games, TV or music (that means no Spotify)
• No browsing online
That’s it. Simples. You can make it more extreme and go fully quiet by choosing not to speak, limiting your diet, locking yourself away or you could even give up something else you really love too. But Blackout is essentially a challenge to stay silent online.
At the start of your fast, seal away your smartphone or tablet in a padded envelope and write the date and time you can re-open it on the envelope. Then walk away. Your Blackout has begun.
Blackout for 24-48 hours between 26-28 October 2018. The fast starts officially at 7pm on Friday 12th and ends at 7pm on Sunday the 12th. (Although we’re advertising these dates you can do a Blackout whenever you like and for anything from 12-48 hours too!).
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
