Types of Fast
Drink only liquids – especially water. On this type of fast you may also take in clear broth and 100 percent fruit or vegetable juices in order to maintain your strength. You establish the number of days for your fast in your prayer time. Be sure to consult your doctor.
There are many options for partial fasts. Below are just a few for you to select from.
The most frequently used example of a partial fast, found in Daniel, chapter 10, the Daniel Fast is a fast from meats, sweets, breads and any drink, except water, for a specific time period (Daniel 10:2-3).
The easiest way to think of this fast is you should eat vegetables, fruits and drink only water. Be sure to consult your doctor, especially if you have any medical condition.
The following are examples of other types of partial fasts. But remember, the type of fast you select is what you and the Lord agree upon.
• give up one item of food or drink such as caffeine, coffee, soft drinks or sweets or give up one meal. fast for a specific number of days . . . one day, three days, so on.
• choose to fast from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. or from sun-up to sundown. When doing this type of fast, consider your work and sleep schedule. The hours that you sleep should not be considered part of your fasting period, so the timeframe for this type of fast may vary.
