Fasting has a partner and its name is prayer. Fasting gives you power. And prayer is essential to the life of the believer. So when you couple prayer and fasting, mountains will move. Prayer adds things to your life and fasting subtracts from your flesh, Think of it this way…prayer is the positive charge and fasting is the negative charge. And when a positive charge comes in contact with a negative charge, the result is POWER. Power will always manifest when prayer and fasting collide.
In this season, it’s imperative that we pray and fast. Jesus said in Matt 17:21, “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” Something will always shift when you add prayer to your fast!
Let’s challenge ourselves during this season! During these twenty days of fasting, don’t forget to spend time today reading the Bible, worshipping God in your private time, serving in our church and your community. And set aside that dollar for every member of your family so when we break the fast together on Sunday, January 26th each member of your family will be able to sow in that offering. We will close our 20:20 fast with a worship night for family and friends that Sunday evening. We are anticipating what God is going to do in us and through us during these twenty days.
