21 Days of Fasting

What is fasting?

Fasting is defined as: abstaining from food for spiritual purposes.
It is not a hunger strike nor health dieting but reflects my inner spiritual desire with
outward discipline. Fasting is not meant to coerce or change God, but changes me,
focuses me, to seek God in a greater way.

The Goal of Fasting is to Draw Closer to god.

Fasting enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God. It prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives. When deciding on a fast, we encourage you to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.

Is fasting Biblical? Here are some scripture References.

Matthew 6:16-18

Matthew 9:14-15

Luke 18:9-14

Acts 27:33-37

Nehemiah 9:1-3

Types of Fasts

Selective Fast

This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.

Partial Fast

This fast is sometimes called the “Jewish Fast” and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

Complete Fast

In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

What is the Daniel Fast?

At Evangel, we encourage our congregation to participate in the Daniel Fast with us.
Here is some scripture references where we find the fast. 

Daniel 1:12
