Why we fast: The central point of fasting is training for self-control (2 Peter 1:6, Gal. 5:23, 1 Peter 1:13). Fasting fosters humility, reliance on God, compassion, gratitude, and self-control.

How to fast: When you fast, you spend time with God in prayer, worship, reading His word or a devotional, instead of indulging in your normal day to day activities or hobbies.

Options to Fast:

  • Daniel Fast (fruits, vegetables, & water)
  • No Meat Fast
  • 1-Meal a Day
  • Eat after 4:00 pm
  • Time stealers (TV, social media, movies, internet etc.)
  • Things you depend on (coffee, caffeine, sugar, etc.)

Fasting from food is the most obvious way to fast. However, you can also abstain from other things. For example, watching television or using social media can consume too much of our lives. That central place belongs to God alone.

If you find you rely too much on caffeine to stay awake or for energy, it may be a good idea to fast from caffeine and be reminded that our dependence on God is sufficient.

Internet, although a wonderful tool of communication, can absorb our time and attention in ways not even television could. Turning the computer or phone off  in order to be completely present in the lives of others has become a wonderful spiritual practice for many people today.
