Chris Pratt Commits To Prayer And Fasting With Popular 21-Day 'Daniel Fast'

In an Instagram post captured by Faithwire's Tré Goins-Phillips, immensely popular and unequivocally Christian actor Chris Pratt revealed that he's starting off 2019 with the Daniel Fast, a 21-day commitment to fasting and prayer.

“Hi, Chris Pratt here. Day three of the Daniel Fast, check it out,” Pratt said in the brief clip. “It’s 21 days of prayer and fasting.”

True to his effortlessly hilarious form, Pratt gave a rough timeline of his observance of the fast: "It's going to coincide also, coincidentally, with the Lego Movie 2 junket. So, by the time you see me, I'll probably be hallucinating. Stay tuned."

The fast, which is similar to a short-term cleansing diet, is inspired by the foods described in the book of Daniel that the Old Testament prophet exclusively ate.

“Entering into a period of extended prayer and fasting is like pushing the ‘pause button’ on life so you can draw nearer to God,” the Daniel Fast website states. “The Holy Spirit joins you in this experience as you open your heart to receive from the Lord.”

“Learn what God’s Word teaches about health and your wellness,” the website continues. “And begin weaning yourself off unhealthy goods. Break poor eating habits. And take the first steps of developing your lifestyle of health.”
