Fasting

By: Ron Lagerquist

It is the goal of Freedomyou Fasting Center to provide the necessary tools that you need to effectively fast. Whether water fasting or juice fasting, the physical reactions of fasting are laid out so there are no unpleasant surprises. Important questions will be answered like, will you become protein deficient during the fast, or is it safe to fast 30 days on juices for my first fast?" 

We go into detail about both the physical and spiritual dynamics of fasting. How does fasting affect you on the inside where your decision making, goals and dreams lie? And why does fasting have such impact on our relationship with God, deepening prayer and strengthening intercession? 

Throughout the ages hungry hearts have been drawn to the ancient door of fasting. Although differing in language, beliefs and culture, fasters all have one thing in common—a desire to change something deep within themselves.

Today, we now have available an abundance of information confirming fasting’s genius to cleanse and detoxify the body from years of unhealthy eating, boosting both the immune system and the body’s natural defenses from disease. Detoxification of the body is a tangible parallel of what is occurring spiritually during fasting. The body is cleansed from the by-products of a destructive diet while the spirit is cleansed from useless fleshy habits and addictions. 

The beauty of fasting is its ability to exact powerful metamorphosis in a short period of time. Imagine if you were forced to remove all life’s little props, the coffees, pizzas, ball games, movies, Danishes. You are forced to quiet your life down to the few things that really matter. Within days, years of fat melt away, the mind calms, allowing deeper meditation and prayer. At first the pain of broken addictions is acute but short lived, usually ending in three days. As a weakened body releases its control over to the Spirit, peace and contentment replace a normally stressed and anxious state of mind. The rapidness of change on both body and spirit during fasting is a great encouragement to a soul weary of stagnation, serving as an excellent launching pad to total transformation that will last a lifetime. Just when you thought there was no hope, self-confidence is rebuilt. Fasting exercises a weary will, developing new independence to a world clamoring to control you’re every thought and action.

If you have decided to fast, get ready. This will be the journey of a lifetime. The deepest part of you, tired and neglected, rising to meet God. And in Him there is healing and freedom.

this website is sooooo needed! the bible speaks a lot about fasting but is rarely mentioned in churches . . . HEY HERE'S A TIP for anyone considering an extended fast (more than 5 days) GET A JUICER (I started out doing 30 day fast on v8 and it was painful) I'm currently 26 days into a 30 day fast using a juicer and it's AWESOME (I'm not saying it's easy But so much better) making your own juice requires some work BUT IT'S WELL WORTH IT! Godspeed to all you brave enough to fast - Thank You FREEDOMYOU

I want to testify that I know when we fast that God is able to help us way more than he would be otherwise if we had only prayed. I also know that when we break a fast early it can bring upon guilt and sadness. Ask k the Lord for forgiveness if you do not make your goal. I am also an LDS convert, y fasting was a common topic when I first joined the church. I more often than not fall short of my personal goals, but it is a blessing to know that God and Heavenly Father is always there to pick us up when we fall. Before I ever was a member of the church I had read this website so many times. Thank you to all of those who have posted their testimonials.

I have fasted before for 20 days. I plan to increase it to 40 days this time. My reasons are simple...to draw closer to God and to seek Him in a more personal relationship. I also have some prayer request that I need a mountain to move. Your words are so encouraging here. I have prepared for this mentally and prayerfully. Excited to start this journey.
