Prayer is the foundation of our faith, the source of our authority, and the power of our lives
The result of prayer as an individual, is that I draw closer to God and closer to my purpose. I can see the impossible made possible. I can hear Gods voice and respond. The result of prayer as a church, is that we see increasing impact and increasing momentum. What we could not do is accomplished. What we could not see comes to life.
Luke 11:9-10 NLT
‘And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.’
– Jesus Christ.
Biblically, fasting is going without something we depend upon to focus on a period of spiritual growth.
Specifically, we deny something we want and rely on, to glorify God, engage our spirit, and go deeper in our prayer life. In simple terms fasting gets the ‘world’ out of us and gets Gods spirit in to us. As a result, fasting brings us closer to God. While our bodies are being deprived for the purpose of drawing near to God, He has promised in return to draw near to us. As we decrease, the Spirit increases. As individuals we are strengthened and renewed. Although fasting in the Bible is almost always a fasting from food, there are other ways to fast. Anything you can temporarily give up in order to better focus on God can be considered a fast.
Isaiah 58:6-9 NLT
“No, this is the kind of fasting I want: Free those who are wrongly imprisoned; lighten the burden of those who work for you. Let the oppressed go free, and remove the chains that bind people. Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help. “Then your salvation will come like the dawn, and your wounds will quickly heal. Your godliness will lead you forward, and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind. Then when you call, the Lord will answer. ‘Yes, I am here,’ he will quickly reply.
There are several types of fasting. The one you choose is between you And god. He will honor your best sacrifice.
A Full Fast
Traditionally, a full means refraining from eating all food. Most people still drink water during a regular fast. When Jesus fasted in the desert, the Bible says, "After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry." This verse does not mention Jesus being thirsty.
A Partial Fast / Daniel Fast
This type of fast generally refers to removing a specific meal from your diet or refraining from certain types of foods. Daniel 10:2-3 says, "At that time I, Daniel, mourn- ed for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over." In Daniel 1:12, they restricted their diet to vegetables and water: "Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink."
A Non-Food Fast
Although not mentioned in the Bible, you can commit to fasting from other activities as well. Things such as giving up entertainment like TV, social media or movies to concentrate on prayer: going without something you rely upon and replacing it with time in Gods word and His presence.
