21 DAYS OF PRAYER AND FASTING


Here at Emmanuel Fellowship, we believe incredible, supernatural things take place when God's people come together in prayer.  We do this corporately as a Church in January and August through 21 days of prayer and fasting.  These two months are intentional, as they begin important seasons within the year.


We would love for you to join us in August on Sundays at 6:30 PM and Wednesdays at 6:30 PM as we gather to pray for the needs of our city, nation, families, and homes.  You can also join us right from your home by participating in the service online.


TYPES OF FASTS


COMPLETE FAST:  This fast calls for drinking only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.


SELECTIVE FAST:  This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet.  One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, or bread from your diet and consume water for juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.


PARTIAL FAST:  This fast is sometimes called the Jewish Fast and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon.  This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 AM to 3:00 PM, or from sunup to sundown.


SOUL FAST:  This fast is common for those who do not have much experience fasting food, who have health issues that prevent them from fasting food, or who wish to refocus certain areas of their life that are out of balance.  For instance, someone might select to abstain from using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast, and then choose to carefully bring that element back into their life in an orderly fashion at the conclusion of the fast.
