For 21 Days we are taking a journey closer to the heart of God!
LET US KNOW YOU’RE JOINING US IN THE PRAYER AND FASTING BY FILLING OUT THE FORM AT THE BOTTOM!
John exclaimed in John 3:30 that He (God) must become greater and I must become less.
That’s what this is all about about. We want God to be greater than ever in our lives, our families, church, community and Country. That’s why we are dedicating time to pray and fast.
A lot of people are unsure what fasting really is.
Simply it is resisting and sacrificing something that we desire, so that He can be greater in us.
The bible does not command us to fast, but it is important and good as we desire to grow closer to God.
The purpose of fasting isn’t just to refrain from food, that’s dieting…
Fasting, combined with prayer, refocuses us from things of this world to completely on God.
We are leaving the type of fast you do completely up to you as you seek the Holy Spirit.
Maybe you decide to do a social media, tv, or tech fast.
Maybe its certain times a day.
Maybe its certain days.
Or maybe even complete liquid for the duration.
Whatever you decide to do on your fast should require a level of sacrifice and challenge.
Know you body and stay healthy. Seek God on how you can participate in the 21 Days!

TYPES OF FASTS
Your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.
- COMPLETE FAST
- In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.
- 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 or certain times of the day. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.
- 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.
