Teaching on fasting and prayer by Guest Minister Tonya Schnitz.
From earliest times in the Bible, men and women who faced great challenges prayed and fasted. In New Testament times the Apostle Paul noted that he was “in fastings often”. They knew the power of prayer and the secrets of fasting. Victories in life often don’t come easy. Connecting with our heavenly Father in concerted prayer was never more needed than in our time. Today we review in depth what Jesus said and taught about prayer and fasting.
Fasting is a powerful tool in the lives of believers. We can be encouraged and motivated today that when we fast in a way that honors God we will receive from the Lord of the amazing benefits.
Most people look at prayer and fasting as drudgery, pain, hunger, ‘no food’, etc. If we focus on the Jesus and the ‘gifts’ of fasting we will receive, prayer and fasting can turn into a journey of joyful celebration and intimacy with God.
