Prayer + Fasting

There is no denying prayer is powerful.  I outlined the power of prayer in my post last week, but certain things can only be accomplished, completed, attained through the powerful spiritual discipline of both prayer and fasting!

This week’s vlog, I share Prayer + Fasting:  The Power of Praying and Fasting. 

Quick Summary:

The main benefit of prayer is it is a direct line to our Creator.  It is the way we get to communicate with God.  God not only hears us, but He listens to us and He answers our prayers.  

The main benefit of fasting is it strengthens us Spiritually and allows us to hear clearly from God.  

When you practice both prayer and fasting you are communicating with God and hearing clearly from God and that is a powerful thing! 

Benefits of Prayer

There are so many benefits to prayer! I outlined several of the benefits in the Power of Prayer vlog, but for this post, I’m focusing on the fact that prayer is our key communication method with our Heavenly Father.  When we pray we are in direct communication with God and He hears us, listens to us, and answers our prayers. How wonderful is that?!

Benefits of Fasting

Fasting is the Spiritual principle of abstaining from food for an extended period of time. That time could be an hour, a day, a week. it depends on how you are led.  

The main key is that you are abstaining from physical food.  Some people fast from social media, sugar, etc, but that is more of a sacrifice than a true fasting so when I say fasting I mean fasting from food.  

There are many benefits to fasting.  One of the biggest benefits is the fact that it decreases our desires of the flesh and increases our desires of our spirit, so practicing the discipline of fasting allows us to grow spiritually.  

In addition, fasting nurtures the fruit of self-discipline from the fruit of the Spirit.  It allows us to grow in being self-discipline.  It allows us to have self-control which is an important fruit of the Spirit.  

Benefits of Prayer and Fasting

The combination of prayer and fasting is like a super power!  In fact, scripture says in Matthew [17:21] that certain things will only be accomplished with the combination of prayer and fasting.  

When you activate the spiritual discipline of prayer (communication with God) and the spiritual discipline of fasting (decreasing flesh and increasing spirit so you can hear clearly from God) all things become possible.
