Prayer and Fasting

03.04.16 | Prayer

    How do I pray and fast?

    There are several types of fasting. The one you choose is between you and God. He will honor your best sacrifice.

    Full Fast
    Drink only liquids (you establish the number of days).

    The Daniel Fast
    Eat no meat, no sweets and no bread. Drink water and juice. Eat fruits and vegetables.

    3-Day Fast
    This fast can be a Full Fast, Daniel Fast or give up at least one item of food.

    Partial Fast
    A partial fast is from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm or from sun up to sundown. You can select from three types of fasting —a Full Fast, Daniel Fast or give up at least one item of food.

    Teach your family about fasting. Here is a great article from Lifeway.
