SEEK: 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting

Our annual 21 days of prayer and fasting is taking place from January 9 to January 30, 2019. Seek is a special season where we invite the entire Radiant family to dial-down our busy schedules and pursue the Lord in a unified and intentional way through corporate prayer, fasting and devotion. Every year during Seek, God does meaningful and unique things in us as a spiritual family, and we can't wait to see what He has in store for us as we kick off 2019 by faithfully pursuing Him with all of our strength. 

What is Fasting?

Fasting is an invitation from the Lord for us to intentionally minimize distractions and normal routines in our everyday lives so that we can better hear His voice. When we turn down the volume in our day-to-day lives, it has the supernatural effect of turning up the volume of God's voice to our spirits. 

There is not a right or a wrong way to fast. Fasting is a spiritual discipline meant to sensitize us so that we can engage with God in a heightened way. Therefore, fasting may look very different for many us. Fasting most commonly looks like abstaining from food, but it's not limited only to that discipline. Depending on many factors, you may choose to fast in alternate ways. Here are some of the most common fasts people participate in:

Common Fasts

  • Water Fast: Abstaining from all forms of food and drink other than water.

  • Juice Fast: Abstaining from all solid food, and only drinking juice and water.

  • Daniel Fast: Eating only vegetables and abstaining from meats, sweets, etc.

  • Selective Meal Fasting: Abstaining from certain meals and snacks throughout the day and only eating a reduced amount during a single designated mealtime.

  • Media Fast: Abstaining from the normal routine of entertainment, social media, etc.

Fasting Resources

Regardless of the kind of fast you choose to participate in during Seek, it's important to pray about what God would lead you to do, as well as consulting a doctor and educating yourself if you have unanswered questions or health concerns.
