Very excited about fasting!



Have you ever done a fast?  Now is the time!  Join thousands and thousands of people and churches all across our country in fasting for 21 days.  Our church has already started but many will be starting on Sunday.

Here is some info to help you get started:


Daniel Fast Verses ~  The Daniel Fast is found in Daniel chapter 10.  Basically, we eat nothing man-made. Only fruits, veggies, beans, nuts, and brown rice for 21 days.

We start the fast by watching the fasting sermons by Pastor Jentezen Franklin and then take communion.  

Here is one sermon:  Jentezen Franklin Fasting Sermon.  The rest are in the sidebar of this video.

In Matthew chapter 6 you will notice that several verses start with "when you give" "when you pray" and then "when you fast."  God expects us to fast.  It is a cleanse for our Spirit and our body.  Fasting draws God's attention and opens us up to His wondrous miracles and blessings. Read about what fasting does in Isaiah chapter 58.  It really is amazing!  Jentezen talks about that chapter as well.


Here is some more info on the Daniel Fast.  
This one looks GREAT!  It has some info in it as well as recipes.  Daniel Fast PDF

Here is a free cookbook ~  It looks like it has some good stuff in it.

If you decide to do this, I have plenty of quick, get-me-by type of food ideas.

I can't wait to hear about the miracles that God is doing in your life!

We are getting ready to leave town for a mini-vacation or I'd give this serious thought. It's not a discipline I've employed often or much, but I can tell you I'm a real whimp during those times when I have :(

If ever there was a time when fasting is needful, today is that day.

Bless you,
Kathleen
