Hey Embrk! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We wanted to let you know and ask for your participation in a 21 day corporate fast for young adults from January 2 – 22. Fasting = breakthrough. Period! The bible gives many examples of prayer and fasting, but one that comes to mind for me is Jesus himself. He was led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit on a 40 day fast. The Word says that he faced all different kinds of challenges, tests and temptations. Not only did Jesus overcome the tests, he came out of the fast stronger and full of more power! Join myself, the leaders and young adults from Abundant Life Whippany as we fast and pray with EXPECTATION of breakthrough for our church, our country, and our individual lives. We will have a brief meeting after New Year’s service outlining options for the fast and to share with you specific vital needs to keep in prayer during your fast. See below for some general info on fasting and some great scripture references. – Joe Arminio Jr.
There are several types of fasting. The one you choose is between you and God. He will honor your best sacrifice.
Drink only liquids.
The Daniel Fast
Eat no meat, no sweets, and no bread. Drink water and juice. Eat fruits and vegetables.
A typical partial fast is from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm or from sunup to sundown. You can select from three types of fasting —a Full Fast, Daniel Fast or give up at least one item of food.
