Prayer and Fasting

Fasting and Prayer is a spiritual discipline. It is an act of surrendering your body as a sacrifice to God. Romans 12:1
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service”. Fasting without prayer is starvation and meaningless in the spiritual world.there are different ways of fasting and prayer.you can fast according to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Your fasting should rotate on the will of God. Fasting and Prayer is for those with a desire to seek God.

Fasting and Prayer is a sign of the thirsty and hunger for God. It’s for those people who want to be in the presence of God. Fasting and Prayer is for someone who wants to find themselves in the praise and worship.its for those who want compassion from God.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FASTING AND PRAYER

Fasting and prayer is an act of worship. We can decide to Fast and Pray in order to enter into Deep Worship with God just like a widow in Luke 2:37″And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day”

Fasting and Prayer lead to Spiritual Empowerment. During fasting and prayer, the physical body is weakened and the Spirit is empowered/strengthened and its ability to fight spiritual battles. Ephesians 6:12

” For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”.

We fast and pray as an act of repentance.We surrender our selves to god and cry unto him for forgiveness. The people of Nineveh proclaimed a fast, cried unto God in repentance and he forgave them. Jonah 3:5-10. More so in the book, of Joel God commands us to rend our hearts in repentance through fasting in prayer.

“Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil”.joel2:13-14

Fasting and Prayer quicken deliverance. If you want quick deliverance in your life especially deliverance from generational curses, deliverance from demonic covenants,deliverance from spiritual husband /wife,etc as it says in Mathew 17:21
“Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting”.

Fasting and Prayer help you to hear God’s voice. As you seek God through Fasting and prayer, your spiritual ears and eyes are opened and you hear from God. Youre also able to understand what the Lord is saying to you. God speaks to us in different ways but we don’t understand because our spiritual ears and eyes are closed. Job 33:14-16

“For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,”

Fasting and Prayer is one of the ways to seek protection and safety from God. Ezra 8:21-23

“Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance.

22 For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him.

23 So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was intreated of us.”

Fasting and prayer is a way of drawing closer to God and separating one from the world. The Bible tells us to draw closer to God and he will draw closer to us. James 4:8

” Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”

Fasting and Prayer is also a way of seeking God’s guidance in making important decisions like electing leaders in the church. Acts 14:23

“Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church, praying and fasting as they entrusted them to the Lord, in whom they had believed.”

Fasting and prayer is an act of humbling one’s self to God. The Bible tells us to humble ourselves and seek God’s face.2 Chronicles 7:14

‘ If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

In conclusion, Fasting, and Prayer should be seen by God only who sees in secret and gives a reward. Matthew 6:16-18

“Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.”

17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;

18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

We pray for our children to overcome clan spirits and covenants and curses which follow them. In my journey, I have discovered that some people break through easier than others due to the difference in the families they come from. Some people are praying against things affecting them as a person well as others like me we pray against things for generations and generations. I pray for my children not to battle with the things I have battled within the spiritual world.

A prayer that breaks curses!

In order to pray a prayer that breaks curses, you have to first understand a curse and what causes a curse. A curse is a problem that repeats its self always and persists from generations to generations, for example, your grandmother, mother went through poverty, illness, etc and you and your siblings are also going through the same. If you don’t break it off your life, your children will also go through the same. One’s sin can bring a curse upon his/her children/generations. A curse is brought by the following; the practice of Witchcraft(Dueteronomy18:10-12), Disobedience(Deuteronomy 28:45), Murder/Abortion(Genesis 4:11), Worshipping other gods, Fornication. Examples of curses are, poverty, failure to be married(when in your family there is no holy matrimony), Early Death(die young), barrenness

A prayer that break curses begin with repentance of the above sins which causes a curse in one’s life/Family. You repent for one’s personal sins and generational sins as the Bible say “our fathers have sinned, and are not: and we have borne their iniquities”Lamentations 5:7.others verses for repentance are: Proverbs 28:13, Isaiah 59:1-3

In order to break off the curses upon your life, take some time to fast and pray and be empowered in order to break those curses upon your life as the Bible say that”Howbeit this kind goeth not but by prayer and fasting”Matthew 17:21

Call upon the Holy Spirit to fill you with the Power that break curses as the Bible say that”But you shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you:and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria,and unto the uttermost part of the earth”Acts 1:8

We overcame the devil by the precious blood of Jesus. Use the precious blood of Jesus to break off curses upon your life.cleanse your self and your family with the blood of Jesus Christ and enter into a spiritual battle to break curses.

lastly, declare and decree blessings to replace curses in your life. Prophecy upon your life as the bible says that”and I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” Matthew 16:21
