Getting Ready to Fast

These are some great reflections around why prayer and fasting is so profound and powerful. By nature, every one of us is inclined to take the path of least resistance. We want to avoid pain at all costs. We love shortcuts. We tend to avoid disciplines, however God says when we do fast and pray he will reward us.

  • Decide what you are going to fast from. Food, technology, entertainment or something else.
  • Block out a specific time that you will abstain from it so you can pray and seek God.
  • Be consistent. Stay with it. Stick to it.
  • Set a specific period of time.
  • Set a specific objective. What will you like to focus on in prayer during that time.
  • Prepare yourself spiritually. Take time to read the word. Worship. Journal.
