Take time to acknowledge what you are seeking God for. Do you need strength or wisdom; are you struggling in your faith? Are you finding yourself weak in your relationship with God or do you need delivernce from something.
If you are taking mandatory medication
please do not stop taking your medicine. If you can’t take the medicine on an empty stomach, please eat as required by your doctor, then began your fast.
During the fast, we not only fast from food, we should also be watchful of our activities behaviors, and thoughts. We should be careful what we
watch and listen to as well.
Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be known unto God.
Biblical fasting is not a public display of your faith,
strenght, or fortitude.
To fast simply means to voluntarily abstain from eating
and or drinking for an extended period of time.
Matthew 17:21 - But this kind goes not out but
by prayer and fasting. One of the most telling passages in
which fasting is mentioned is Matthew 6:16-18, where Jesus
is teaching His disciples basic principles of Godly living.
Biblical fasting is a discipline and voluntary communion
with the Lord. The practice of fasting builds focus and
awareness. Fasting is a way to free yourself from the bonds
of what you want or think you need.
Fasting helps us with: Spiritual Power (Mark 9:29),
it helps us achieve spiritual strenght in times of
weakness; Wisdom (Acts 14:23), it helps us achieve
spiritual clarity from God and not from our flesh
for purpose and direction; and fasting opens the
door for answers to prayer (Acts 10:30-31)
in times when we are struggling with major life
choices, overcoming addiction, or for any reason
that we may desire to strengthen our faith.
