PRAYER AND FAST

Fasting is the act of choosing to abstain from food for a period of time. When we fast, we are practicing spiritual discipline by sacrificing one of our most essential daily routines.

Fasting is an opportunity not to get from God, but to get to know God. There are different types of fasting, and we recommend prayerfully considering which practice is best for you at this time.

THIS YEAR WE ARE GOING

Prayer is Important

The act of prayer is where we get to know God the most. This is where we develop intimacy with Him. This is where we put our faith to practice and grow a sense of trust with the one who knows us the most. Prayer is not about finding all the right words, it is a conversation between you and the father

To help you pray over this period we will have daily prayer topics on our social pages. You will find them in our stories

Types of Fast

Complete Fast

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

Soul Fast

This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance.
For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.

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 6:00 pm, or from sunrise to sunset.

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.
