Tonight seven of us met to pray for tomorrow when we wrap up the week long Daniel Fast. We prayed for people to increase their desire for God and we prayed for God to grant us freedom from sin, addictions and the past. Before we prayed we talked about our experience fasting this week. It was unanimous, this has been a good thing.
Personally, it’s been a challenge. I’m used to eating on the go and the Daniel Fast takes some real planning. Mike Zimmers said it would almost be easier to do a complete fast. It is nice that you can keep up your schedule. Sometimes when you are doing a no-food fast you have to cut back a lot to conserve your energy. What you have to be careful about with the Daniel Fast is to make sure that you do set aside generous time for Bible study and prayer. Otherwise it is just a different diet.
I’ve experienced a lot of peace and joy this week. I don’t know if it is because of the Daniel Fast or just a blessing from God but I’ll take it. I have a great sense of expectation that many people will experience breakthroughs in the spiritual realm. I can’t wait to hear the stories.
The Ridiculous Worship service is Sunday at 6 p.m. at the Olathe Campus. I hope you’ll come and participate in extended times of worship, scripture and prayer. I have ridiculous expectations!
