Answering the Lord's Call to Repentance and Restoration starts with each individual. We traditionally fast the Month of October. What can you fast? Good Question. The Jesus Fast is pretty much the biggest challenge and I would suggest not doing it unless you have been preparing your body for such a denial of food. The Daniel Fast is the most popular. For this fast you give up something of luxury, like watching your favorite TV shows, or using your digital devices only for so many minutes a day. Or fasting lunches or snacks. Then there is the Elijah Fast where you only eat when someone offers you a meal or a dessert or whatever. Each of these fasts can be modified to your personal desires to focus on the Lord Jesus and to be drawn into a closer relationship with Him. Remember: The fast is not an end in itself, but a means to an end, know Jesus better. Pair up with someone so you can spur each other on to Love and good deeds.
