Fasting programme is an exercise that encourage believers to fast.
Fasting is the total abstinence from food for the period of time. This is done as stated in Mark 9:29 “And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.”
Fasting and prayers are spiritual entities. They are the instruments believers uses to reach out to God. Fasting thrives when there is a need to pray very aggressively. The victory of our Lord Jesus was recorded through fasting and prayers.
Fasting and prayers are not for lazy Christians. If you want to deal with the enemy and place them where they belong, then fasting and prayers are weapons to effectively work in that area.
Fasting and prayers are hard work. It is for mature and strong Christian. During the fast, God may decide to reveal to you to extend the fast to certain numbers in order to gain quality response from God. As Christian, we need to employ the use of fasting and prayers if we must achieve our destiny.
Fasting without a high need for prayers is like going on hunger strike. Since fasting are prayers are good recommendation from the Lord, if you pray and fast very well, God should intervene into your situation. Sometimes the way we fast is not the way God expects us to fast.
Some fast like an hypocrite Matthew 6:16-18. Some convert their inability to access food at home into fasting. Some fast because they don’t feel like eating anything for that period of time. Whichever way you want to fast, let God lead you before taking your own decision.
