PRAYER & FASTING
What is the purpose of a fast? To bring understanding, clarity and focus to what God has for you. God has a plan for you - Jeremiah 29:11. As we turn the chapter on a New Year we come together as the body of Christ to seek God in order to draw closer to Him and to seek His direction for us in 2016.
He has ordered your life from beginning to end – whom you should marry, what you should do, and where you are supposed to go. He knows your every step. But we lose step every now and then and this fast will help to bring back in focus the VISION God has for you. God is a God of break-through. Through a 21 day Daniel fast, among many other benefits, including a healthier system, God will give you understanding of the vision He has given to you.
What is the Daniel Fast? The Daniel Fast is a 21 day fast of only vegetables, fruit and water. No bread, no pasta, no meat. Follow the link for more information on the Daniel Fast including a list of approved foods and foods to avoid.
How do you get started? What do you do from day to day? Refer to the 21 days of prayer & fasting journal for a day by day guide and prayer focus. Keeping a journal will also help you stay intentional and remember the word God speaks to you.
You can also listen to a podcast about prayer & fasting from Terisa Smith, lead worship director of The Pursuit Church.
