DANIEL FAST OVERVIEW
A Daniel Fast, named after two recorded fasts in Scripture by a leader named Daniel, describes an intensified spiritual engagement designed to catalyze unforgettable encounters with God. Everyone at LifePointe is invited and strongly encouraged to participate. Participants can expect to engage God's love in fresh ways, receive revelation knowledge, be stirred in their faith and to flush out the spiritual toxins that have become "normal" part of their lives.
Sunday, January 6th to Saturday (Noon), January 26th, 2019
Denying your physical desires and pleasant foods (this includes meats, sugars, carbonated beverages, pleasure electronics, magazines, news, social media, etc) while saturating your spiritual desires with intensified devotion (this includes Bible reading, prayer, relational bonding, etc.)
Everyone at LifePointe is strongly encouraged to join in at appropriate levels. Those with necessary work-related responsibilities or dietary concerns can modify as needed. Teenagers are encouraged to join in at "stretching levels" but modifying for school function needs. All teens are encouraged to deny pleasure electronics, magazines, news, social media, etc. – be unhooked – throughout the 21 days. Children under 11 are encouraged to "deny themselves" appropriate pleasures and saturate too. Everyone should set their personal fasting goals, with personal needs adjusted for. And then execute those goals with unrelenting diligence.
We have designed support events to help you saturate in God during the fast.
