Daniel Fast and Prayer 2018- BECOMING WHO CHRIST HAS CALLED US TO BE
For the last several years along with many others in the Body of Christ our congregation has participated in a Fast that we call the Daniel Fast during the month of January. This year we will begin with the Evening Meal on Sunday January 7th and conclude with lunch on Saturday January 27th.
Would you commit to participating in this fast? Personally, during this time, I refrain from eating meats, sweets, and bread. If you cannot fast due to some health issue, or some other reason here are some things that I or others have fasted in the past: television, a ball game, or ballgames, Facebook, or some other activity that you enjoy.
I believe that when we do this that we are putting spiritual deposits in Heaven’s Bank. I believe that we can draw on these deposits through out the year. God will honor this!
Different people will be leading prayer meetings at on different days and different times during the fast. On Saturday’s during the fast we will have a prayer meeting at 8: A.M. the first two Saturday’s and the last Saturday we will gather at 11: A.M. when we break the fast.
When we first came here I felt like the LORD wanted me to pray and to declare Ephesians 4 over the congregation each day Each day during these 21 days there will be a verse, or verses from this chapter. Would you read it, meditate on it, pray and declare as the Holy Spirit gives you direction during these 21 days?
