No meat. No dairy. Lots of prayer.
We are fasting and casting this month! Would you like to join us?
Your goal in fasting is to become closer to God by voluntarily deny-ing the demands of your flesh, increase your prayer life during this time, and study scripture with a new intensity. It’s an sacrificial act of disconnecting from the world to connect closer to God.
When the fast is over, you should have a new spiritual strength from overcoming the cravings that usually control your life and from dedicating yourself to God.
The Daniel Fast is a partial fast. You can eat fruit, vegetables and drink water. Be careful of processed foods and refined sugars.
