“At times life brings disappointments and challenges that seem out of our control and insurmountable, and if we’re not careful we find ourselves bracing for life’s next blow rather than postured in faith and living with joy. God’s Word declares in everything there is a season. Seasons come and seasons go. In my heart, the Lord is saying for 2018 we will not brace for life’s worst, but we will embrace the new thing God has for us. He will do it. It’s a new season. It’s a good season. It’s a season of hope and a future.
I’d like to ask you to embrace this new season with 21 days of fasting. Jesus Himself encouraged us to fast and pray. I have found that fasting is a tremendous way to empower you to draw closer to God and to see breakthroughs in areas of your life that need change. We’ve included information on different types of fasts and special times of corporate prayer during our 21 days of fasting and seeking the Lord. I encourage you to ask the Lord which fast you should participate in as an individual and as a family. I am filled with faith, excited that God will do a new thing in you!”

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.
