Types of Fasts HOMEREADINGSTYPES OF FASTS There are different types of fasts in the Bible. Three basic types are described below: Absolute – This involves abstaining from food and water, as was done by the Apostle Paul, Mordecai and other Jews. Normally this fast should not last more than 3 days. Examples: “For three days Paul was blind, and did not eat or drink anything” (Acts 9:8, 9), Moses (Deuteronomy 9:9), Israel (Ezra 10:6), Israel (Esther 4:16). Normal – This involves abstaining from food, solid or liquid, but not water. Example: Jesus “ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them was hungry” (Luke 4:2). Partial – A partial fast is a restriction of diet of certain foods or a meal a day and filling that space up with prayer. It can be from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm or from sun up to sundown (6:00am to 6:00pm). Examples: Daniel “so the guard took away their choice food and the wine they were to drink and gave them vegetables instead” (Daniel 1:16; Daniel 10:3). This is also called the ‘Daniel Fast.’ Like Daniel did, you can decide to eat only vegetables and fruits; drink water and juice; but no other food.
