The Blessings of Fasting

fastingFasting was part of the prayer life of many of the remarkable people in the Bible. Hannah, Samuel, Nehemiah, Daniel, and, of course, Jesus, fasted. The preparation and eating of food requires a significant portion of a person’s day. Therefore, fasting gives us extra time to pray and to consider and confess areas of sin. Hunger, too, reinforces a sense of repentance and reminds us of our dependence upon God.

Adding fasting to your prayer life introduces an element of further seriousness to your prayers. Too often, it’s easy to come casually to God in prayer. On some occasions, we may even have a degree of superficiality in our prayers. But when you determine to fast in conjunction with your praying, you express a desire to be more focused on God.

So, on those occasions when your heart is especially burdened, or when significant decisions need to be made, why not intensify the seriousness of your prayers by fasting?

In Knowing God Through Prayer by Jim George, experience a deeper intimacy with God and give new life to your prayers. In this new book, find clear direction on how to pray God’s way in all of life’s hardships and blessings.
