It is that time of year again when we give our first fruit sacrifice to the Lord through fasting. The next 21 days will be a time for decreeing, meditating, and praying as one for a local, global, and personal release.
For those of you who are new to fasting, fasting is one of the most practiced and effective of all the spiritual disciplines. It is a time to seek God’s direction for our lives, to renew our commitment to Him and to empty ourselves of sinful practices that limit our growth, development and effectiveness in life and ministry.
We ask that you daily confess the word of God over your life. Consider areas in your life that cause you concern, worry or stress. Lift these needs to the Lord during your fast. I invite you to use this pamphlet as a tool to guide you through this process. I am certain that this time of spiritual preparation will send tremendous ripples of faith and joy throughout your soul.
God bless you and I hope the very best for you as you set aside this time to give the first of yourself to the Almighty God. Remember, He rewards those who diligently seek Him. So keep your mind on Christ and your focus on righteousness.
