Prayer and fasting is for the benefit of the believers and it’s commanded by God (Isaiah 58: 6-12).

Fasting is a spiritual exercise that brings about supernatural blessings. Prayer and fasting does not empower God, but empower the believer.

As believers, we fast because there is a kingdom need for it and not for show off (Matthew 17:20-21).

God commanded prayer and fasting for specific benefit. Remember, prayer is what gives value to fasting (Luke 18:1).

How To Approach Fasting And Prayer Profitably.

1. You must define your goals (Esther 4:15). Esther had a goal to appear before the King after her fast.
What is your goal? Without definition there will be derivations.

2. You must seek Him with your heart (Jeremiah 29:13).

3. You must come confessing your sins (Pslam 16: 18). Untill you confess, there is no mercy.

4. You must come to God by His word (Isaiah 43: 26, 1st John 1: 9-10).

5. You must engage in Kingdom advancement prayers.
