Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
“I love the sight of seeing an eagle soar. Nothing seems so effortless, so majestic as watching an eagle spread his wings, ride the wind and sail over the forest below. Like the eagle, God helps us to rise above the challenges of life and soar with Him. Sometimes that can be easier said than done. I have found that our answers are found in seeking the Lord. Setting specific times for prayer and fasting helps us to get our eyes off of problems and onto Him. In doing so, we put the burdens we are facing into His hands.
I want to encourage you as we enter into the new year to participate with our church family in 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting. We will begin our fast on January 7th and finish on January 28th. I’ve included info on different types of fasts as well as special times of prayer for us to gather and pray.
I know that as you seek the Lord you will find yourself encouraged and strengthened in your spirit. 2019 is a year to soar and find rest in God!”
Love and Blessings!

Types of Fasts
Daniel Fast [Daniel 1:11-13]
This type of fast has grown increasingly common and is designed so that you eat no meat, sweets, or bread. You consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.
Partial Fast [Leviticus 23:32]
This fast is sometimes called the Jewish Fast and involves abstaining from eating any types of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6AM- 3PM, or from sun-up to sun-down.
Liquid Fast [Luke 4:2]
This fast calls for drinking only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.
Entertainment Fast [Romans 12:2]
This fast is common for those who do not have much experience fasting foods, who have health issues that prevent the fasting of food, or who wish to refocus certain areas of their life that are out of balance. For instance, someone might select to abstain from using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then choosing how to carefully bring that element back into their life in an orderly fashion. No matter what you are fasting it is always a good idea to limit the amount of media input when you fast.
