Beloved! The Scripture is an evident truth that God hears our prayers and answers us when we call upon Him. The saints of God in the Bible who fasted and prayed in their distress, were blessed by God immeasurably. Are you weary, tired and burdened by circumstances around you? Do not lose heart. Fasting and prayer is a powerful weapon given by God for bringing a breakthrough in your life!
In Bible, we read that King David pleaded with God in fasting and prayer, lying in sackcloth on the ground when his child was suffering from terrible sickness. Though the elders of his household stood beside him to get him up from the ground, he refused that he would not eat any food with them (2 Samuel 12:16).
Ezra proclaimed a fast, by the Ahava Canal, so that he along with the people might humble themselves before God and ask Him for a safe journey for them, their children, with all our possession (Ezra 8:21). In Ezra 8:23, he says, “We fasted and petitioned our God about this, and He answered our prayer.”
Dear beloved! Do you want God to hear your prayers? God promises us that he will answer His children when we humble ourselves before Him and seek His face. He will do a miracle in your life when you cry out to Him. He will change every adverse situation in your life and deliver you. In Luke 18:7, Jesus asked His disciples, “Will not God bring about justice for His chosen ones, who cry out to Him day and night?” Be encouraged this day. God’ word will never fail. Bring all your problems and fears under the feet of Jesus and plead for His mercy. Certainly, the Lord will hear your prayers and will deliver you from all your struggles and prosper you in all things.
I seek You this day, for Your supernatural intervention in every area of my life. Master, I plead You to take over the complete control of my life. Lord, in Your great mercy and love, give me Your grace to sit at Your feet and benefit showers of abundant blessings from You. Lord, strengthen me as I began to fast and pray and help me experience Your best in my life. In Jesus most precious name,
