Types of Fasts
Your personal fast should present a level of challenge, but it is very important to know your body, your options, and most importantly, to seek God in prayer and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.
In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.
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, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.
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.
This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.
Each year we partner with Convoy of Hope's One Day to Feed the World. One Day to Feed the World is a simple way for you to transform the lives of those who are impoverished, hungry, and suffering. By giving one day’s wage, you provide children — and in many cases, their families — with nutritious food, access to safe drinking water, and an opportunity for a brighter future.
It’s about equal sacrifice, not equal giving. To learn more about Convoy of Hope, visit convoyofhope.org
