Day 13 of a 21 Day Fast

When you fast your body detoxifies, eliminating toxins from your system. This can cause mild discomfort such as headaches and irritability during withdrawal from caffeine and sugars. And naturally, you will have hunger pains.

Limit your activity and exercise moderately. Take time to rest.

Fasting brings about miraculous results. You are following Jesus' example when you fast.

  • Spend time listening to praise and worship.
  • Pray as often as you can throughout the day.
  • Get away from the normal distractions as much as possible and keep your heart and mind set on seeking God's face.

There are other forms of fasting that your children can do. Here is what your kids can do:

  • Fast from sweets and junk food
  • Fast from TV and movies
  • Fast from video games

Today's Prayer

Lord, I commit my works unto you, and ask you to establish my thoughts and direct my steps.

Let my heart beat with your desires. Deliver me from all wrongdoing and fleshly desires. Keep me under your faithful, loving, and warm wings of love.

I praise you, Father, Savior, Deliverer. In Jesus' name.
