Why the 21-Day Fast
Daniel dedicated three weeks (21 days) to fast and prayer and, as a result, the Holy Spirit revealed Himself to His servant.
Fasting is personal and should always have an objective. In our case, for instance, these 21 days represent the death of the natural man (carnal-minded) and the birth of the spiritual man.
The purpose of setting time aside to fast is to strengthen our communion with God, despite being involved with many daily activities. There are moments in life that are decisive, and we need to take action.
We will not fast from food, but from all types of secular information and media—TV, radio, magazines, newspapers, Internet, etc. In other words, it will be 21 days of abstinence from information unrelated to the Bible.
Those who need to use secular media in their job may want to make a daily fast of food of 6 hours or more.
Get closer to God by fasting, praying 3 times a day—morning, afternoon and evening—, and by meditating on the promises of God.
“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Corinthians 2:14)
