Prayer and Fasting

As a church we love to begin every year with a time of prayer and fasting

Fasting and prayer prepares us for special times of spiritual consecration, repentance and seeking the Lord. Fasting teaches us to deny ourselves and exercise increased control over our flesh. The primary purpose of a fast is to "deny food for spiritual motivation," so weight loss or getting in shape physically should not be the main goal. Along with fasting foods you enjoy the most, you may also want to consider limiting your personal activities as well. (i.e. TV, internet, video games.) During a fast, many people find it helpful to journal, expecting the Holy Spirit to partner with you as you seek a greater level of intimacy with the Father.


WHAT IS THE DANIEL FAST?

It's a biblically based partial fast based on the Prophet Daniel's fasting experience. (Daniel 1, 10) The Daniel Fast eating plan is similar to a vegetarian diet. In addition to food restriction, the Daniel Fast includes increased prayer and waiting upon the Lord. The Daniel fast includes all fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts & seeds, legumes, oils, and beverages (excluding soda and alcohol).


WHY ARE FRUITS AND GRAINS ALLOWED WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS DANIEL ATE ONLY VEGETABLES AND DRANK WATER?

The early translations (including KJV) use the word “pulse” instead of vegetables. That word is rightly translated as "foods grown from seed." Therefore, the Daniel Fast includes fruits, vegetables and whole grains


CAN I TAKE MEDICATIONS?

If you have health issues, you should always talk with your health professional before starting the Daniel Fast or any other major change in your diet. Fasting should never bring harm to the body, so medications should be continued.


Eating no more than three moderate meals and two small snacks would be appropriate. Please don’t get hung up on the strictness of the diet. God always looks on the heart.
