21 Days of Prayer & Fasting

January 5th - 25th, 2020
FACEBOOK Live Prayer Mon-Fri @ 7:00pm

At Vision, we encourage a time of prayer and fasting for 21 days each year in the month of January. This is a season of focused prayer as a church family.  YOU MAY ALSO CHOOSE TO FAST AT OTHER TIMES DURING THE YEAR FOR YOUR OWN SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT.  THE TIMING OF YOUR FAST IS NOT AS IMPORTANT AS THE STRENGTH OF YOUR FOCUS ON GOD AS YOU FAST.

The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. It also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all the good things God desires to bring into our lives.

Fasting for beginners

common Types of fasts

Complete Fast

In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

Selective Fast

This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.

Partial Fast

This fast is sometimes called the “Jewish Fast” and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

Soul Fast

This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.
