21 Day Daniel Fast 2022
January 10th - January 30th
The Daniel Fast is designed to better connect us with God. As a church, we will take 21 days to deepen our relationship with God through fasting certain foods and liquids. During the fast, we are focusing on what God wants to do in our personal lives as well as what He desires to do in our faith family. We are praying for spiritual awakening. We are asking God to use us to see many come to faith in Christ. We are asking God to help us make Jesus famous in our community and throughout the world.
New to fasting, fasting when coupled with prayer, serves as a powerful vehicle to draw closer to God. Please use the Fasting Workbook, which will guide you to set fasting intentions and goals. This is a God-designed discipline to enable you to enter into a focused time of seeking the Father and His wisdom, intervention, and direction. It is a time to seek God’s direction for our lives, to renew our commitment to Him, and to empty ourselves of sinful practices that limit our growth development and our effectiveness in life and ministry.
Try not to get too hung up on what you should and shouldn’t eat. Remember, the most important part of the fast is that you deny yourself physically so that you may seek the Lord in prayer and grow closer to Him. Your particular fast may look a little different than someone else’s, but that’s ok. Some people may need to be stricter than others in their food choices so that their fast is a sacrifice for them. These food guidelines are meant to be just that – a guide. They are given to help you create boundaries for your fast.
Lastly, as a ministry I have decided our focus for the fast, however, personally, you must determine your focus for the fast and draw closer to God. But this is also an excellent opportunity to seek God for the challenges you may be facing right now.
The Greater Antioch Church Focus for this Daniel Fast are:
Healing of the Church & Community
Winning Souls to Christ
I along with First Lady Cooper ask that you daily confess the word of God over your life. If you have concerns in your life that cause you to worry and stress, give these needs to the Lord during the fast. Please utilize the information we have for you and embrace each opportunity through this experience and enriching journey.
