Daniel fast

I am going to attempt to blog each day during my 21 day Daniel fast. I did the fast last year with my church and even though I know it can be difficult...I am really excited to see what I can learn and what God will do through me. I decided to prepare a little better this year and I made a prayer calendar so that every day would have a specific thing (or things) for me to pray about and focus on. I can always add things or change them...but having a plan seemed like a good way to stay motivated.
So today is day 1 (And just being honest...I really want a cup of coffee :-)!!) I originally had my sweet husband and cute babes on the calendar for today...but after I thought about it I realized that I should actually put myself on the list for today. Not at all with the intentions of being selfish...instead I want to pray that God uses this fast in my life. That He changes me in areas that I need to be me a better attitude where I need it...helps me be a better wife and mom...shows me areas that He wants me to grow in...and help me clear my head from the sometimes overwhelming distractions of life.
Today I am praying for myself and I encourage all of you sweet ladies, wives, sisters, moms, friends, daughters, and business women to pray for yourself as well. Pray that God uses you and that you will be strengthened in every area you feel that you are lacking. And let me know if there is anything that I can pray for you about...I would love to!

  1. I saw that you are doing a Daniel Fast and wanted to let you know about my book, The Ultimate Guide to the Daniel Fast. It would be a great help and encouragement to you as you seek the Lord. You can find the book at your local Christian bookstore, Barnes & Noble, or online at May the Lord bless you richly as you hunger for Him!
