Fasting was a normal practice in the early church and it would seem Jesus expected his disciples to fast.
Fasting gives us clarity.
Fasting gives us power from the Holy Spirit.
Fasting brings breakthrough and victory.
Luke 4:1-2 & v14
2 Chronicles 20:1-30
A great book I’ve been reading at the moment is Dr Yonggi Cho’s book on prayer. It has one chapter on fasting that I found very helpful and He is the founder of the world largest church. Around 800,000 people in one church in Korea.
Prayer & Worship Night
Also just a quick invite for you to join us at either our morning prayer sessions this week at 6-7am or the Worship night at the end of the week. Here’s a bit more info below and an RSVP form for the worship night.
Some breakthroughs only come through prayer and fasting and as C3 Oxford Falls is Praying and Fasting this week, I felt prompted by the Spirit to join in unity and draw near to Him this week as well in this way.
The Art and Music Center will be open at 6-7am for prayer each morning (Tuesday 6-8am) and on Friday night we will have a celebration with an extended time of worship and prayer from 7-10pm.
Let us know if you can make it or not so we can plan to make the night the best we can, honouring your time and our amazing God.
