  Prayer Spend time reading the Bible. Ask the Holy Spirit for guidance in your prayers. Write down your faith goals and specific prayer requests for your family, friends, church, and nation. I AM CHURCH let us join at least one time either on the prayer line or zoom minimum once per week. Intercede for your family, church, pastors, and nation throughout the week.

 

 

 

 Commit—Ask God for grace to help you follow through with the fast.

 Actions— Plan to limit physical and social activities during the fast. You can ask someone to be your prayer partner throughout the fast.

While Fasting [Jesus] answered, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4

Focus—Set aside time to work through the devotions and seek God to write your own personal proclamations and pronunciations. Be ready to respond to God’s Word and the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Pray—Join at least one time either on the prayer line or zoom per week. Intercede for your family, church, pastors, and nation throughout the week.

Replenish—During mealtime, read the Bible and pray. Drink plenty of water and rest as much as you can. Be ready for temporary bouts of physical weakness and mental annoyances like impatience and irritability.
 

Try not to get too hung up on what you should and shouldn’t eat. The most important part of the Daniel Fast is that you deny yourself physically so that you may seek the Lord in prayer and grow closer to Him. Your fast may look a little different than someone else’s, and that’s fine. Some people may need to be stricter than others in their food choices so that their fast is a sacrifice for them. These food guidelines are meant to be just that – a guide. They are given to help you create boundaries for your fast.
