Faith means SO much! “Faith it!” We hear. When we do not see, cannot see what we ask for YET. But it is! We hear that The LORD knows all and sees all. Before you open your heart, God sees and knows ALL, Amen.
Remember Daniel? He prayed in faith for 21 days!
“I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.”
There was occasion in the spiritual. No ‘pause’ on the response, Amen
“Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely.”
“A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it!”
The 21-Day Daniel Fast is a partial fast, based on Daniel 10:2-3 in the Bible, in which Daniel says he fasted for three weeks. During the fasting period, only certain foods are eaten. Prayer, meditation and giving the results of the fast to God are also important components of this fast.
Right yourselves with God! Jesus came for a reason! You!
Even before Jesus came down to Earth, people fasted – seeking the will of God; as we see below.
Both the Old Testament and New Testament teach the value of fasting, which is abstaining from food or drink in order to focus on prayer and seeking God’s will. Through many examples of people in the Bible who fasted, we can know that God grants supernatural revelation and wisdom through this practice. Scripture tells us that fasting will help us grow a more intimate relationship with Christ and will open our eyes to what He wants to teach us.
If you are wondering how to fast such as for how long, what to abstain from, and what to pray, these Bible verses about fasting will help guide you on your journey!

“Moses was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant—the Ten Commandments.”
