In preparation for the 21-Day Prayer and Fasting here is a quick lesson on fasting by Dr. Myles Munroe.
Remember praying and fasting is a personal relationship with God, your Father! We are growing in the power of the Holy Spirit. In order to grow spiritually, we need to spend time with our Father! And, to spend time with our Father, we must do so in the spirit.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Because, the flesh is enmity (or an enemy of) against God, we should seek God with our spirit not with our flesh (feelings or emotions).
Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Pastor Fidel and I will be on a liquid fast. For the first 7 days we will drink water. Our goal is to drink water every 2 to 3 hours each day for the first 7 days. It is important that you also dedicate time to pray throughout the day. Remember - pray without ceasing. We will be intentional about praying. Because, we tend to get busy working throughout the day, it is important for me to schedule my alarm at specific times to remind me to stop and spend time with God.
From Jan 2, 2024 thru Jan 22, 2024 we will be intentional about spending time and hearing from God to start this year. We encourage you to join us! If you would like to, please register here! You will receive resources and encouraging messages throughout the time.
