Jesus told his disciples that some things come not by my prayer and fasting. The disciples were trying to cast out devils of a man, and they couldn’t do it. In the state of our country, we need to seek God by fasting and praying.
No, fasting isn’t popular, but it is a very necessary thing for the church to be doing. We must submit ourselves to God. We must lay ourselves on the altar in submission to God’s will. You may ask the question is fasting necessary for today? Yes, it is, if we want people delivered and set free.
We must hide ourselves before God. Fasting isn’t always easy to do, but it sure is necessary in the day and age we live in. Churches don’t talk about fasting much anymore. Why as a church should we do it? We need to commit ourselves to God holy, completely. We must surrender all.
Prayer is something we can’t do without. We need Jesus more today than ever before. Times are going to continue to get worse. We are living in perilous times.
How are we going to be able to fight against the Wiles of the devil? Look at the economy. Look at the virus, it’s not going away any time soon. How will you overcome? We need to pray for our country, our president and the vice president, the House of Representatives, the Senate and all of those that are over us.
We need God’s direction and his guidance on our lives. We need to pray that God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We must get serious with God. Playtime is over.
There are different kinds of fasting: water fasting, juice fasts, a one meal fast and fasting completely with no food at all. It’s between you and God what type of fast you do. It will make a difference in your life. You can receive your healing; you can receive answers that you need from God for you and your family. Try it. Ask God which one he would have you to do.
Yes, I had a time of fasting and prayer in my life. I know it works. God can and will change things around you.
Yours in Christ Jesus,
Rev. Teresa Reid.
