Fasting

Why fast?

The goal of fasting is to draw closer to the Lord. The Bible shows us that fasting removes distractions and allows us to lean into the Lord; when we do that, He will renew us and change us.

Fasting helps us to prioritize the Lord in our lives, and it prepares our hearts for what the Lord desires to bring to our lives. As we seek the Lord in prayer while we fast, personally and corporately, it is important to remember that fasting should come with a level of challenge. But you know your body, and we want you to understand your options.

Partial Fasts

Partial Fasts

This is often referred to as the “Jewish Fast.” No food is consumed in the morning or afternoon. Then a meal is eaten in the evening. This can work by using specific times of day, or simply “sun up to sun down.”

Soul Fasts

Soul Fast

This is a great option for people with no experience or limited experience with fasting; it is also good for those whose health may prevent them from fasting food. This fast is commonly used to help bring focus to certain areas of your life that are out of balance. Some examples include fasting from social media interactions, television, video games or other activities that consume your time.
