We’re fasting and praying that God would awaken a generation of young people. Most people are beginning on Aug. 6. I list the following kinds of fasts in approximate order of challenge.

  1. Fast from foods, only drink liquids.
  2. Juice fast – that’s what Karen and I are doing.
  3. Daniel Fast – only eat fruit, vegetables and whole grains
  4. Fast from one meal a day or from a food group you like.
  5. Fast after a certain time in the evening, like 5PM, and spend extended time with God each evening.
  6. Fast from television, friends, movies. If you choose any of these, then make sure that this is time you are giving to God in prayer.
  7. Use these 30 days to free yourself from unwholesome things like, pornography on the internet. Invest the time you spent engaged in that activity in prayer. This is great for you to find a person to keep you accountable to this.
  8. Some of you need to make a commitment to spend time with God each day, an hour or more is a great target if you do not already spend time with Him each day. Fast from something in your life and fill it with God-time.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
