Fasting

Fasting Basics

Simply stated, biblical fasting is refraining from food for a spiritual purpose.

According to the Bible, there are three duties of every Christian: give, pray and fast.

Biblical fasting takes a lot of discipline and strength—strength that you can only receive from God. Your private discipline will bring you rewards in Heaven, says Matthew 6.

When you give God your first through fasting, prayer and giving at the beginning of the year, you set the course for the entire year.

Why should I fast?

    1      Are you in need of healing or a miracle?

    2      Do you need the tender touch of God in your life?

    3      Is there a dream inside you that only He can make possible?

    4      Are you in need of a fresh encounter?

    5      Do you desire a deeper, more intimate and powerful relationship with the Lord?

    6      Are you ready to have heightened sensitivity to the desires of God?

    7      Do you need to break away from bondages that have been holding you hostage?

    8      Is there a friend or loved one that needs Salvation?

    9      Do you desire to know God’s will for your life?

BIBLICAL FASTING FOCUS

1 TIMOTHY 2:1-2

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.”

ROMANS 12:1

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service.”

MATTHEW 6:33

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

ISAIAH 58:6

“[Is] not this the fast that I have chosen to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?”

We want to encourage you to target your prayers during the fast. Two specific areas we will be focusing on together are leadership and finances. The Bible instructs us to continually pray for our leaders (1 Timothy 2:1-2). When we lift up our leaders, here in the United States and around the world, we can expect God’s peace in our lives and in our nation.

Another great promise, from the book of Isaiah, proclaims that the chosen fast will “undo the heavy burdens and let the oppressed go free.” We are living in tough economic times and we know that so many people are under a financial burden. As we come together to fast and pray, we believe that your burdens will be lifted and that financial blessings will be released into your life!

We encourage you to seek the Lord in prayer and let your decisions about your biblical fasting come from Him. Ask the Lord to show you areas to target during your time of fasting and prayer. We believe that, as we pray and seek God and give Him our best at the first of the year, He will bless our ENTIRE year (Matthew 6:33)!

PRAYER OUTLINE

“…and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”   2 Chronicles 7:14

 

  • Pursue God

Go before the presence of the Father and allow Him to speak to you. Enter with a heart of gratitude, humility and repentance before the Throne of Grace. {Matthew 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”}

  • Spiritual Awakening and Revival for our Nation and the World

Unite in prayer for non-believers to have a life-changing encounter with Jesus and for a spiritual awakening in the Church. {Ephesians 5:14 “For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”}

  • The Nation of Israel

We are clearly told in Scripture to pray for the nation of Israel. Those who do will be blessed. Let’s stand in the gap for all of Israel to receive Jesus as their Messiah and for peace in the Middle East. {Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you. May peace be within your walls and prosperity within your palaces.}

  • The Family – Church - Financial Breakthrough

Stand in the gap for your family as well as your church (WOF). Pray for heavy burdens to be lifted and that financial blessings be released. {James 5:16 “Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”}

  • Leadership: Government Officials - Our Military – Pastors all over the World

1 Timothy states that we should pray, intercede and give thanks for all men; for kings and for all who are in authority. Let’s pray for godliness, humility, and honesty that we may lead a peaceable life through our Lord Jesus Christ; and for all leaders to lead with godly wisdom. {Romans 13:1-7 “Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.”}

  • The Persecuted Church

Pray for those that are being persecuted and/or imprisoned for their faith in Jesus Christ all over the world. {Hebrews 13:3Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies.”}
