Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16

... Prayer Still Works ...

With the coupling of fasting and prayer, one can open themselves to God’s Holy Spirit. Having a sincere desire to seek God, you can come to Him with a contrite and repentant heart and He will minister to you in a powerful way. God’s awesome power is transforming and you will know that with God, all things are possible. 

Fasting Theme 2019:

 

Attaining New Altitudes Via New Attitudes

The Importance of Fasting:

Fasting for the believer is not optional, it is a discipline which helps the believer to deepen his/her relationship with Jesus. Jesus Himself emphasized the importance of fasting when His disciples could not cast out the demons which had possessed the a young man with madness. He said in Matthew 17:21 " Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting."  Jesus Himself fasted for forty days, giving us the example that it is possible for us as followers of Jesus to fast. Let's examine two main questions/focal points about Fasting and Prayer:

 

What Is Fasting? 

 

1: Fasting is subjecting the body to the Spirit of God. 1 Corinthians 9:27

 

2:  Fasting is disciplining the body, mind and spirit. Proverbs 25:28

 

3: Fasting is subordinating our fleshly desires to the desires of the Holy Spirit. Galatians 17:17

 

4: Fasting sets the Spiritual priorities in our lives. Matthew 6:33

 

5: Fasting is longing after God. Psalms 63:1-2

 

 

Why Should We Fast? 

 

1: Fasting honors God. Matthew 6:16-18, Luke 2:37, Acts 13:2 and Matthew 5:6

 

2: Fasting helps us to humble ourselves thereby dethroning our selfishness and pride.

2 Chronicles 7:14-15

 

3: Fasting helps us with repentance and personal failures. Psalm 51, Jeremiah 29:11 and James 4:8-10

 

4:  Fasting helps to dismantle yokes and loose the bands of wickedness. Isaiah 58:6-9

 

5:  Fasting helps to destroy strongholds of doubt and unbelief. Mark 9:25-29

 

6: Fasting increases confidence and effectiveness in our prayer life.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6

 

7: Fasting helps us to discover God's will. Daniel 9:3-4 and 19-22

DANIEL FAST GUIDELINES 

Our Annual Church Fast was Jan. 14-23, 2019.

We will continue with 3 Days Daniel Fasts leading up to each Monthly Prayer Vigil.

The Daniel Fast is based on the fasting experiences of the Old Testament Prophet Daniel. 

It’s a partial fast where some foods are eaten while others are restricted for 21 consecutive days. 

The Daniel Fast is a powerful spiritual discipline.
