If you were at C3 on New Year’s Day, you hear Matt talk about t Awakening, 21 days of prayer and fasting, that will begin on January 8. We invite you and your family to join C3 Church for what has become a powerful time each January of fasting and giving God first place in our year. We will spend 21 days seeking God and believing Him for big things to come in 2012. The fast will begin January 8 and end January 28.
As we prepare for these 21 days of prayer and fasting, I would like to encourage you to check www.mattfry.com throughout the 21 days for devotionals and encouragement and here on www.marthafry.org for recipes and snack ideas. You can also look in the C3 Source for Daniel’s Fast recipes and books on fasting.
Normally, fasting means to abstain from food and/or drink for a certain period of time as a religious practice. However, it may extend to anything that may be a source of pleasure, satisfaction or personal gratification.
Most of us will be participating in the Daniel’s Fast which means we deny ourselves sweets and meats and eat mostly fruits and vegetables. Below is an extensive list of what you can and cannot eat on the Daniel’s Fast. Tomorrow, I will post a week’s worth of recipes and a grocery list so that you can prepare!
