Hi! I'm starting my first long Water Fast new years day. I have done three 5 day Water Fasts this year specifically to cleanse/detox my body. This time I am doing a spiritual fast and am going to focus on spending the first part of this year close to God in prayer. I would love to make it the whole 21 days (as many churches around the nation do at the beginning of the year) but it seem like it would be soooo hard! I am bound and determined to make it to the 10 mark to at least double the amount of time of my previous fasts. I'm hoping to find support and encouragment on this blog! It feels good to know that us "fasters" are not alone! :) Drop me a line anytime....I would love the encouragment! It's nice to be able to write to people who know EXACTLEY what you are feeling and going through! Good luck and GOD BLESS!!!!!
