Week_3_Completed_21_Day_Fast.pdfSince the beginning of The Plant our church has been on a journey of drawing near to God through the spiritual disciplines. We have learned and continue to learn to be a church of prayer and fasting. We believe that these disciplines help us to draw near to God to hear His voice and know His will.
The reason our church
chooses to fast for 21 Days is because in Daniel chapter 10, Daniel had fasted
for 21 days seeking God to intervene in his circumstances. Our goal is to use
Daniel’s example as our vehicle in learning to fast for an extended time.
Daniel had chosen to eat only choice foods, “All that time I had eaten no rich food. No meat
or wine crossed my lips, and I used no fragrant lotions until those three weeks
had passed.” Daniel had chosen to
only eat that which would nourish and sustain him. Actually, what Daniel ate
was the healthiest food for him. He chose to abstain from those foods that were
rich and delicacies. In the end Daniel had chosen to eat food that would bring physical
strength and mental clarity. Why; that he would have the ability to not be
distracted in a time he was seeking the wisdom and intervention of God.
Our hope is that you
would join us on this Daniel Fast. Below is a list of foods you are able to eat
and foods to eliminate during the 21 days. There are recipes online that you
can find by just searching for Daniel Fast recipes. These 21 days are not to be
a drag for you but rather inspire you to spiritual health and even physical
If you choose not to
do the Daniel fast there are other options to fast from:
Television, Movies, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest etc.
Foods: sweets, sugar, ice cream or anything that you may eat too much of.
Beverages: coffee, soda, alcohol, caffeinated drinks
In the end it is not what
you fast from it is the intent on why you are fasting. We want to thank you for
joining us during this 21 Day Fast. Our Leadership Team is praying for each of
you believing that this fast will be the catalyst for this coming year!
