21 days of prayer and fasting 2022

On this website of Celebration Church you’ll find resources to help you go deeper in your relationship with Jesus in the coming 21 days. You don’t have to pray and fast by yourself, we’re doing this together as a church family.

  • Be in faith as you prayerfully and thoughtfully step into this season of fasting. Fasting is more than simply going without something. It is supplementing the absence of something that feeds your flesh with prayer in order to feed your spirit. Pray and ask the Lord how you, and your family, can enter the coming fasting time.

  • Preparing well comes with making a plan. Decide before the start what kind of fasting you are going to commit to. It’s better to make a plan for the whole fasting period instead of deciding on a day-to-day basis. Make sure you set up a plan that is doable to commit to for you and your family.

    Consult your physician or doctor if you need to, or if you have health concerns. If your health or personal condition does not allow you to fast food or meals, determine an alternative that will work best for you. Such circumstances may include pregnancy, a physically demanding profession, and medical conditions.

  • You don’t have to do this alone. Connect with church family during the week or at the two gatherings we have. Find out when the meetings are in our calendar.

Ways to fast

  • If you’re wondering, “Where did the Daniel Fast originate?” That’s a great question. The Daniel Fast was first observed by the prophet Daniel in the Bible. On one occasion, Daniel was greatly concerned for his people and sought the Lord’s wisdom during a time of prayer and fasting.

    Daniel 10:2-3 says, “At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips.” The meaning of “choice food” is not clear; however, most commentaries conclude that he ate no bread or sweets. The Message translation sums up Daniel’s eating habits during that time: “I ate only plain and simple food.”

    The idea behind the Daniel Fast is not to duplicate Daniel’s menu but to imitate his spiritual hunger. Daniel’s passion for the Lord caused him to seek spiritual food rather than physical food, which should be the desire for anyone doing the Daniel Fast.

    What do I eat on the Daniel Fast?
