3 DAYS FASTING AND PRAYER FOR JUNE 14th, 15th & 16th 2019



THEME: "DRAWING CLOSER" Psalm 73:28 "But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all your works." This month of June I want to encourage all Christians on social media that want breakthrough and restoration to Fast & Pray along with us this month’s 3 day fast. This is an event anybody can partake of anywhere around the world in your home, church, friend’s house, in the village or in the city etc with the main purpose of getting people to repent and turn back to God on the same calendar day through fasting with the help of prayer taken from 2 Chronicles 7:14, that it will build awareness of the need to pray for your local church. Though we are on different time lines I encourage you to just follow the dates for your respective countries. Date: 14th,15th & 16th of June 2019 Fasting Days: Friday, Saturday, Sunday Fasting Type: Fasting from food but drinking water or fluids for those that can. You are welcome to break the fast each evening and start again either after meal (6am-6pm) or you can go straight through. Fasting Teaching - https://youtu.be/DFWacd-8ShY PRACTICAL TIPS FOR FASTING: 1. Avoid medical and even natural herbal drugs. However, if you are under medication, these should only be withdrawn upon the advice of your doctor. 2. Limit your physical activity and exercise. If you have a workout routine, adjust it accordingly. 3. Rest as much as you can if needed be. 4. Maintain an attitude of prayer throughout the day. Intercede for your family, pastors, church, nation, missionaries & world missions, etc. 5. Drink plenty of clean water if you are joining the water fast. 6. As your body adjusts, be prepared for temporary bouts of physical weakness as well as a greater likelihood of impatience, irritability, and anxiety. FASTING HELPS US BECOME SENSITIVE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT. “While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”Acts 13:2 When we deny our natural cravings, our spiritual antennas become more attuned. We become more sensitive to His voice as we divest ourselves of worldly distractions. We are better able to focus on God and submit to His will. This opens the door for more of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. FASTING BRINGS REVIVAL. “. . . in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Uerusalem would last seventy years. So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.”Daniel 9:2,3 Fasting helps us prevail in prayer and intercession. Daniel understood that Israel was headed for destruction. He also knew that in times like these, there is only one recourse—intercession through praying and fasting. Throughout human history, God has brought revival and delivered nations from destruction in response to prayer and fasting. FASTING IS AN ACT OF HUMILITY AND CONSECRATION. “. . . I put on sackcloth and humbled myself with fasting . . .” Psalm 35:13 Humility results in the grace of God (James 4:6). When we humble ourselves in prayer, we have instant access to the heart of God. As we deny ourselves as an act of consecration, we are better able to exercise self-control over our emotions and desires. Matthew 6:9-13 "In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.11 Give us this day our daily bread.12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.13 And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen." Day 1 – GOD'S PROVISION “Give us this day our daily bread” Read The Following First: Matt 6: 5-11 Matt 6: 19-34 1 Tim 6: 6-12, 17-19 Luke 12: 13-24 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need from day to day. So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” Matt 6:31-34 Jesus teaches us in the disciples prayer to ask Father for our daily needs. Nothing wrong with asking, Father is an amazing provider. He loves to meet all our needs. The problem is we think we know better what our needs are than God does. Most of us would feel better if God simple provided enough for the next few years ! But we are in danger of missing the kingdom when we think like this. Jesus reminded us, “what does it prosper a man who gains the whole world, but loses his soul”. The rich young ruler left Jesus with all his “external stuff” but no kingdom internally. He lost his soul/identity. His idea of need was much different than Jesus wisdom. So what constitutes our needs? What is this daily bread we are to ask for? “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” John 6:35. Jesus spoke this after he ha
