Landmark Church 21 Days Prayer and Fasting
Landmark Church will be starting the new year off with prayer and fasting starting on January 2, 2020.
Matthew 17: 19
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and asked, “Why could we not drive it out?” 20 He answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, [a]if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. 21 [b][But this kind of demon does not go out except by prayer and fasting.]”
On the Daniel Fast, you eat plant-based meals that are nutritious and delicious, while setting aside other foods as an act of worship and sacrifice to the Lord.
What are the foods to eat on a Daniel fast?
Low-glycemic fruits include berries, apples, peaches, grapefruit, cherries, and grapes. Canned fruit is also an option, but only if there is no added sugar, coloring, or other preservatives. Vegetables: Fresh, frozen, or canned vegetables are all allowed on the diet plan, as long as there is no added salt.
Can I drink tea on a Daniel fast?
Beverages: spring water, distilled water, herbal tea, freshly squeezed juice, coffee beans. Other: tofu, soy products, vinegar, seasonings, salt, herbs and spices.
Then he (the angel) said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself (fasting) before your God, your request has been heard in heaven. I have come in answer to your prayer.

Matthew 6: 16
“When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18 so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
