What does fasting do? Fasting and Prayer bring you closer to God.
Fasting is not a requirement. Fasting is a choice.
Whenever a believer chooses to begin a spiritual fast for one day or several days, he or she makes a choice to break out of the routine and draw closer to God.
Fasting is a gateway through which God releases His supernatural power into our lives.
The choice is ours: we can either open that gateway or ignore it an keep on going in our routine.
Fasting is a short season that releases long-term rewards. It is like taking the time to sharpen your ax before cutting down a tree.
A few days out of an entire year is not a long time, but it yields great reward. Fasting gives you back your edge.
It gives you the power to do far more than you could possibly accomplish in your own strength and understanding.
There are several types of fasting. The one you choose is between you and God. He will honor your best sacrifice.

Full Fast
Drink only liquids (you establish the number of days).

The Daniel Fast
Eat no meat, no sweets and no bread. Drink water and juice. Eat fruits and vegetables.
