The Fasting Movement

Simply stated, biblical fasting is refraining from food for a spiritual purpose.According to the Bible, there are three duties of every Christian: give, pray and fast. Fasting takes a lot of discipline and strength – strength which you can only receive from God. Your private discipline will bring you rewards in Heaven, says Matthew 6.When you give God your first through fasting, prayer and giving at the beginning of the year, you set the course for the entire year.Why should I fast?1. Are you in need of healing or a miracle? 2. Do you need the tender touch of God in your life? 3. Is there a dream inside you that only He can make possible? 4. Are you in need of a fresh encounter? 5. Do you desire a deeper, more intimate and powerful relationship with the Lord? 6. Are you ready to have heightened sensitivity to the desires of God? 7. Do you need to break away from bondages that have been holding you hostage? 8. Is there a friend or loved one that needs Salvation? 9. Do you desire to know God's will for your life?Choose how you would like to fast »Fasting Focus"Is not this the fast that I have chosen to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the opressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?" [ISAIAH 58:6]"And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar..." [JOEL 2:25]"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." [2 CHRONICLES 7:14]  

Quick Tips for Fasting

Most of the fasts mentioned in the Bible were public fasts initiated by the priests; Jesus gave us the model for private fasts in Matthew 6:16-18 and 9:14-15. Whether you are beginning a private fast, or fasting corporately as we do each year at Free Chapel, I believe you will find these tips helpful.Jentezen FranklinHow to Begin
Start with a clear goal. Be specific. Why are you fasting? Do you need direction, healing, restoration of marriage or family issues? Are you facing financial difficulties? Ask the Holy Spirit for guidance. Pray daily and read the Bible.Preparing Spiritually
Confess your sins to God. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal areas of weakness. Forgive all who have offended you and ask forgiveness from those you may have offended (Mark 11:25; Luke 11:4; 17:3-4). Surrender your life fully to Jesus Christ and reject the worldly desires that try to hinder you (Romans 12:1-2).Deciding What to Fast
The type of fast you go on is up to you. You could go on a full fast in which you only drink liquids, or you may desire to fast like Daniel, who abstained from sweets and meats, and the only liquid he drank was water. Remember to replace that time with prayer and Bible study.Deciding How Long
You may fast as long as you like. Most can easily fast from one to three days, but you may feel the grace to go longer, even as much as 21 to 40 days. Use wisdom and pray for guidance. Beginners are advised to start slow.What to Expect
When you fast your body detoxifies, eliminating toxins from your system. This can cause mild discomfort such as headaches and irritability during withdrawal from caffeine and sugars. And naturally, you will have hunger pains. Limit your activity and exercise moderately. Take time to rest. Fasting brings about miraculous results. You are following Jesus' example when you fast. Spend time listening to praise and worship. Pray as often as you can throughout the day. Get away from the normal distractions as much as possible and keep your heart and mind set on seeking God's face.How to End
Don't overeat when the time comes to end your fast. Begin eating solid food gradually; eat small portions or snacks.

Types of Fasts

The type of fast you choose is between you and God. He will honor your best sacrifice. You may want to include a combination of fasts. For example, you may want to participate in a Full Fast for 1-3 days and then continue with a Daniel Fast for the remainder of your time of consecration. Before beginning any type of fast, consult your physician.Full Fast
Drink only liquids (you establish the number of days).The Daniel Fast
Eat no meat, no sweets and no bread. Drink water and juice. Eat fruits and vegetables. Learn More » 3-Day Fast
This fast can be a Full Fast, Daniel Fast or give up at least one item of food.Partial Fast
A partial fast is from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm or from sun up to sundown. This fast can be a Full Fast, Daniel Fast or give up at least one item of food.Scripture references for Fasting:

1 Samuel 1:6-8, 17-18, Nehemiah 1:4, Daniel 9:3, 20, Joel 2:12, Luke 2:37, Acts 10:30, Acts 13:2Corporate Fasting:

Day 1: Getting Started 

Fasting brings one into a deeper, more intimate, and powerful relationship with the LORD. When you eliminate food from your diet for a number of days, your spirit becomes uncluttered by the things of this world and amazingly sensitive to things of God.
“As the deer pants for the water brooks
So my soul pants for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When shall I come and appear before God?
My tears have been my food day and night,
While they continually say to me,
“‘Where is your God?’”
-King David [Psalm 42:1-3 NKJV]
On your first day of fasting, remember:
1. Drink lots of water
2. Keep your focus and avoid temptation
3. Remember your fast and its purpose
4. Get with an accountability partner or group
Physical Effects:
1. Hunger pangs and cravings



Today’s Quote:
“Jesus, while being a very public figure, was actually a very private person. You do not see Him praying in public nearly as much as you see Him praying in private. If fact, our Savior was so committed to prayer that He would often pray for hours on end, even all through the night. He seemed to crave intimate moments alone with His father in heaven.”
Keep a journal as you go through this experience. Every day you will be provided with a few questions to guide you with your thought process. Here are a few questions to help get you started…

“Out of those private and profound times alone with His Father came an enormous outpouring of public demonstration where God’s power would be poured forth in healings, raising the dead, abundance and more.
