Since I did my first fast in October 2010....a 3 day fast, it was my intention to fast at least one day a month but I have not developed the discipline to do so.
However, I did another 3-day fast in March during the Lenten season and possibly 2 other 1-day fast.
I do the Daniel Fast and so I have fruits before 6am and vegetables after 6pm. It is great for spiritual development, energizing, helps to regulate your diet and prevent overeating, and for me it also helps me to maintain my weight.
Most of all, it is healthy as it cleanses the body and provides it with much needed rest.
Every end of the week, I will fast for a day.
The reason for fasting is because what we are now eating is containing lots of chemical additives. Therefore by fasting, it will help me to cleanse out all the toxic that I had consumed to purge out.
I have cut down on red meat and now eating mostly white meat and vegetable. This will help to cut down the toxic intake from red meat. Whenever possible, I will consume organic food.
I don't have a scheduled time to fast even though I should at least once a week so I can stay strong in the Lord and put down my flesh more.
I have fasted recently with my church for different things- such as to break the bands of wickedness, to set the people free that are in the church and also called to be there. Fasting for our church to complete the call God has placed on it. Fast against the spiritual warfare, demons, devils, attacks,sickness and such.
Mostly are fasts line up to the Daniel fast- no sweet bread/bread, no meat and we already don't drink strong drink.
We fast for God to come in and loose us from evil and in turn God answers and strengthens us to be able to obey Him more - So we can stand, live not die and declare the works of the Lord.
Their are many promises with fasting that God has promised In Isaiah 58.
After fasting and prayer God does turn the stuff around just as He has promised!!
Remember fasting without prayer is just going hungry!
