1. Stories of fasting are all throughout scripture.
Jesus fasted and expected His disciples to fast. He said, “when you fast,” not, “if you fast.” (Matt. 6:16)
Daniel, David, Esther, Mordecai, Job, Nehemiah, Ezra, Jesus, Paul, Barnabas and many others fasted.
Even the King of Ninevah called his people to fast and turn from their evil ways after Jonah warned of God’s pending judgment. When the people fasted, repented, and turned from their ways, God withheld judgment.
2. Praying and fasting:
DEVELOPS HUMILITY - (humble themselves)
David said, “I humbled myself with fasting.” (Psalm 35:13)
IMPROVES YOUR PRAYER LIFE - (pray)
When your stomach rumbles, it’s a reminder to pray.
If you normally eat a lot, you might find yourself praying a lot in those couple of hours!
HELPS YOU SEEK GOD’S FACE - (seek my face)
Imagine a hurting marriage where the husband is putting something like extreme exercise ahead of his wife and children. He gives it up in order to rebuild his relationship with his wife. As a result that marriage will explode with love. Something similar happens when you give up something that you really want or need (in this case, breakfast) to focus on God. Remember, “blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” (Matthew 5:6)
MAKES YOU MORE AWARE OF YOUR SIN - (turn from wicked ways)
It’s not just the big, boogieman sins that get us. It’s also the subtle sins that we think are too small to worry about.
One by one they dull our relationship with God.
3. America needs someone like you.
America needs someone like you. Someone who wants to get even more serious about God.
If you pray and seek God, we think that people will begin to understand the power that God can unleash on our America. So be encouraged!
If many, many thousands of us fast and pray together, we think God will expand our Christian influence beyond what you and we ever thought possible.
That's why we're so excited.
You can make a difference in America.
Can't fast? Sign up to pray only.
Either way we think you'll be blessed.
Please Note: If you're not able to fast, you can still pray with us. Fasting is not for everyone. Expectant and nursing mothers, diabetics, those on prescription medications, and those with a history of medical problems should not fast. Consult your physician before fasting.
