Prayer and Fasting:Do Your Research Before You Start

Hello and a happy Sunday to you. As we are coming to the end of the year, I am sure that we are planning on what we want to do in the New Year, our relationship with God, Spiritual Growth, Praying Patterns, Bible Study etc. I know some churches begin the new year with fasting and praying to start the year well. This is a good thing, but sometimes we do things out of religion and tradition instead of being led by the Holy Spirit.

Here are 10 reasons for biblical fasting :

1. To strengthen prayer (e.g., see Ezra 8:23)

2. To seek God’s guidance (e.g., see Judges 20:26)
