21 Day Fast



Today I began a 21 day fast with my church. I am going to do the Daniel Fast. I am really excited about this journey and looking forward to doing it, with many others. I can't wait to see what GOD is going to teach us through this. Each day we will provide specific prayer requests, and we are reading through Proverbs and the Gospel of John. We believe strongly in the 2Chronicles 7:14 passage, and are asking GOD to bring revival, to our Church and Community.

The picture above is a trip to the market this afternoon, where we purchased chia seeds, fruits, and vegetables. If you are interested in more details about this fast go to

There are many kinds of Fasts recorded in the Bible, and each time GOD responded to his people favorably. The Daniel Fast removes all meats and sweets. Lots of anticipation here!

Funny, your cart looked very similar to our yesterday! We know that God will honor our small sacrifice and our large amount of prayers! Go Gracies!

Interesting that in my reading (chronological Bible)... I have landed in the accounts of Moses' death and the passing of leadership to Joshua, the old dying to make way for the new. Entering a promised land on faith alone, and watching walls fall. There are no coincidences. Be strong and very courageous.
