"Now on the twenty-fourty day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, in sackcloth, and with dust on their heads.
Then those of Israelite lineage separated themselves from all foreigners; and they stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers.
And they stood up in their place and read from the book of the law of the lord their God for one-fourth of the day; and for another fourth they confessed and worshiped the Lord their God." (Nehemiah 9:1-3)

From now on we are going to engage ourselves on the 21-day Fast of Daniel and during this time it's very important to take the best of your time to seek wholeheartedly and sincerely the presence of God by confessing your sins, giving ears to the voice of the Holy Spirit, cleaning your hearts and minds from all evil feelings and thoughts and, of course, read the Word of God, because in it you will find the answers for your prayers and the direction of God for your life.

This fast will be like a filter in your spiritual life and great changes will happen. Therefore it's essential to keep yourself far from the things of this world during this period of time, like secular songs, entertainment, secular information and programs on TV, radio and newspapers, games, etc and concentrate only on the information that will feed and edify your spiritual life.

May God bless you,
Bp Gilson Costa
