Join me for a time of prayer and fasting over the next 21 days as we seek to hear God’s vision for our lives in 2017.
Each day I will be sharing a segment of my pastor’s weekly message, along with my thoughts and a daily prayer.
Jesus showed us by example that prayer and fasting play a vital role in the life of a Christian.
Notes from Pastor Blake Bennett at TheCity.church
4 types of fast:
▪️A supernatural fast (no consumption of food or liquid for an extended amount of time. Example: Jesus’ 40 day fast at the beginning of His ministry. Not humanly possible.
▪️Total fast (no food/liquid for a very short time – 2-3 days)
▪️A liquid fast, (no solid foods)
▪️A partial fast (example: The Daniel fast) http://daniel-fast.com/
Fast for your soul as well as your body.
▪️Disconnect from secular entertainment, social media, tv, or whatever God leads you to do.
▪️We cannot afford not to participate. YOU may be one word away from your destiny.
▪️DO NOT try to impress people. This isn’t about showing others how spiritual you are. It is about connecting with God.
“Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.” – Matthew 6:16 NKJV
▪️Pray and decide what type of fast God is calling you to do. (See 4 types of fast)
▪️Tell someone – have an accountability partner.
▪️Abstain from addictions.
▪️Expect big things!
My intent is to post around noon each day, so be sure to check back tomorrow for: Day 1.
