    to the person who ask if anyone fasted absolute for more than 3 days I have. and OH MY Goodness. It is the single best thing I've ever done in my lfife!!!!

    However it has to be of the LORD for me. I can not and could not do it on my own.

    I went absolute for 5 days! I was the most radiant beautiful I've ever been. I praised and worshipped the Lord all 5 days. Drank several 16 oz glasses off water daily. took a dropper of trace minerals once daily.

    I came out with ABSOLUTE power! Absolute permenant results and complete victory. If you want to truimph over your enemies it is the way to go.

    Now I am going to do a fast but I will not be able to do what I did the last time. oh and I lost about 25 to 30 lbs.

    Earlier this year, I did a 7 day complete fast. And all I can say is WOW. To me, by day three, I didn't even miss the food. The spiritual clarity that came of it was absolutely mind boggling!! I was so intune spiritually, and got full off the smallest of liquids. It made me see how food in my life was such a big distraction in my spiritual life. Each day Id have something like a slimfast fr breakfast, tomato soup for lunch, and milkshake for dinner...It was awesome. Like one of the best things I've ever done...honestly.

    I read over Franklin Jentzen's fasting articles yesterday, good information. I've been phsycin myself up over the past couple of months to do a New years fast.

    I think the more desperate the situation the easier to do the fast.

    I agreed to do it with a co-worker but her pastor is adding in all kinds of stuff that I am not in agreement with, so I am going to be led by the Lord on this fast.

    Yes, let God lead you. Pastors provide guidance that can be twick base on the what is provided because utlimately this is between you and God.

    Thank you for sharing. FH and I will be starting to fast and pray together for a day or two every month and just knowing the options are helpful. This is new for me in my relationship with God, but I really would like to do it right. Ms. Honey also has shared some great insight on fasting, if anyone would like to PM her. (hope she doesn't mind me sharing)

    Im in. Thanks star for being on your job with the fasting & its importance in our christian faith.

    And thank you to everyone who has shared your stories. I am going to start tomorrow, please pray for me that I don't break the fast! I have a very stressful job & which can cause me to use other things such as food to absorb that stress. My intent is to do a 7 day fast! I have done an absolute three day fast before - my intent was to start today, to do a daniel fast for 4 days, then an absolute fast for another 3 days.

    I almost was okay for but my co-worker brought in girl scout cookies :lachen:

    I need to be clear on somethings right now!

    I am doing an absolute fast for 14 days and a Daniel fast for 7 days. During this time, I will seek God's will concerning my next steps in every aspect of my life. I believe that my communion with God will be powerful and life-changing. My fast will end with me being water baptized on March 22.

    Today I started a fast of sacrifice. My sacrifice was meat and meat by products. It's hard, I didn't realize how often I eat meat until today. I'm ending it on Sunday at 2:30pm.

    I'm fasting for clarity regarding my life (I'm in limbo) and that my sister doesn't lose her job.

    I was trying to figure out how long I can fast and really didn't know how long I would be going. I was thinking of doing two days on the Daniel Fast but I think I know what I can do now.

    Instead of going days and days without food, I am going to do the
    6 a.m. - 3 p.m. fast per day or a 9 hour fast beginning from when I first wake up.

    I have fasted quite a few times in my life and the spiritual experience in itself has been phenomenal. Though I enjoy and see the benefits of doing my own personal fast, for some reason it is when I partake in the corporate fast at my chuch that my spiritual experience is more heightened or transcended. It is the most amazing experience. So for those of you who mentioned partaking in a fast any updates of spiritual breakthroughs from the experience.

    I am currently reading Pastor J. Franklin's book about fasting and I am on my third day of fasting. I started on Sunday with a fruit, water, detox tea, green tea, and juice fast. I've been fasting from sugar for a while and I have lost a lot of weight. When people ask me what I'm doing to lose weight, I tell some people that I have eliminated sweets and meat from my diet. However, I tell others that I am on a fast, mainly because I want God to be glorified. Do you all think it is appropriate to tell some people that you are fasting? I know the Bible tells us to pray and fast in secret, but I feel that it is good to let other people know because it can be used as a testimony about how the Lord is moving in my life. What are your thoughts?

    Whether you are doing a corporate fast such as group or private especially, private it should not be known to others. For example, in a group fast such as Church it may be necessary to talk to others but to encourage one another and you may have to talk to you spouse so they will know. However, a private fast should NOT be shared with people until after the fast but only your spouse since he may want to know why you are not eating with him. If others ask you what your are doing just state you are cutting back or your are in consecreation. Although consecreation could be a give away. I basically told people I was cutting back on things to stay focused on God and I would leave at that. God wants somethings private and he specifically states this in his word about the private fast. So, when you do a private just wait until the fast is over before you share, God will stilll be glorified and God will give you insight on what to tell people who ask during the fast. I think telling others you are cutting back on sweets is good and just leave at that.

    No you are not doomed because God knew your heart and you were trying to boost you simple did not know. But if possible from this day forward if it is a private fast try to keep it private. Don't worry God does understand that fasting and praying is a journey and you will learn as you go.
