What Is A Word Fast? A time of being intentional about speaking positively and avoiding words of judgment, criticism, sarcasm, negativity, complaining, and gossip.
How long is it? 40 consecutive days. Monday January 23-Friday March 3
Who Can Do It? Anyone and Everyone! Everyone can benefit from the benefits of positive thinking and speaking.
Benefits? You have the power to change your life and the lives of those around you by changing what you speak.
What if I mess up and speak negatively? It’s ok. The purpose of the fast is not to condemn you, but rather to make you aware of your self-talk and what you say to others. It is to remind you of the power that we have in what we say. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
MEAL FAST: For those who would like we will be adding an additional component. Each Wednesday we will add a food fast, Daniel Fast, from 6am-6pm on the 2nd Week of the Word fast. (Daniel Fast Consists of no sweets, no meat, no breads, etc. It primarily consists of fruits and vegetables).
“Let no unwholesome word proceed out of your mouth, but only that which is good for building up, that it may give grace to the listeners” (Ephesians 4:29)
