Prayer and Fasting

My brother-in-law who is our Pastor of our church flew to Manila today together with his wife to attend a 3 days Prayer and Fasting lead by the Powerful Evangelist and Prophet Sadhu.

Prayer and Fasting is actually defined as a voluntarily going without food in order to focus on prayer and fellowship with God. Having a dedicated time of prayer and fasting is not a way of manipulating God into doing what you desire. Rather, it is simply forcing yourself to focus and rely on God for the strength, provision, and wisdom you need.

The purpose of Christian fasting should be to take our eyes off the things of this world and focus our thoughts on God. Fasting should always be limited to a set time because not eating for extended periods can be damaging to the body. 

I had actually done a whole day prayer and fasting before and it was indeed a very nice experience. I did not eat the whole day and I never felt any hunger nor  I felt thirsty because I  was really enjoying the presence of God in our prayer and worshiping the Lord.

Fasting is not a method of punishing our bodies and it is not be used as a "dieting method" either. We are not to spend time in prayer and fasting in order to lose weight, but rather to gain a deeper fellowship with God.
