ABUNDANT LIFE FELLOWSHIP INVITES YOU TO START THE YEAR WITH 21-Day DANIEL FAST
CONGRATULATIONS on your willingness and commitment to join Abundant Life Fellowship Church for this 21 day fast! Whenever a fast is recorded in Scripture, it is followed by a season of growth and blessing. And as you will discover over the next few weeks, your commitment to fast will usher in some of the greatest opportunities to take hold of the blessings of God. That is what we are most excited about. And we look forward with anticipation to all of the great things God is going to do in the life of our church and in your life as well. So as we join together as a church family, let’s take the next 21 days to prepare ourselves for what God has prepared for all of us in 2013!
Fasting is a spiritual discipline designed to better connect us with God. It’s all about aligning ourselves with God and what He really wants to do. As a church, we are fasting together in order to deepen our relationship with God as well as get in step with His plan and purpose for us during this coming year. Over the next 21 days, we will substitute our regular food intake with those disciplines that help us better connect with God—reading the Bible, praying and journaling. The overall goal is to experience a genuine hunger for spending time with God. Remember, the idea is to be realistic, not legalistic. Focus more on the details of connecting with God than the details of the menu, and you will discover the blessings of fasting.To read more about the biblical basis for the Daniel fast read our ebulliten
FAST FRAMEWORK The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, which means that we will eliminate some common things from our daily diet, but will have generous options available. We will focus on eating fruits and vegetables that are pure and simple. We have included a list of foods to eat and foods to avoid. If you have any condition which would prohibit you from being a part of the Daniel Fast, there are other options. Choose something from your daily routine (i.e. specific foods or beverages, television, other technology, etc.) and fast inthat manner for the next 21 days. Remember, the details are not as important as the spirit in which you participate.
*If you have any known medical conditions or suspect such conditions, consult your doctor before beginning the fast.
