21 Days: prayer and Fasting

From Jan 13-Feb 3, we will be observing 21 Days of corporate prayer and fasting. Choose a personal fasting plan and help pray for Destiny Church, for God's will, wisdom, and each other. Check the Prayer List at the bottom of the page.

Purpose & types of fasting

1. It can help us hear from God (wisdom/direction/encouragement/etc).

2. It can reveal our hidden sin.

3. It can strengthen intimacy with God.

4. It can teach us to pray with right motives.

5. It can build our faith.


COMPLETE FAST

You drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.


SELECTIVE FAST

Removing certain elements from your diet. One example 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

Abstaining from certain meals each day or from certain times of the day.


SOUL FAST

Instead of food, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and praying during those time you would use them during the day.
