The Powerful Practice of Fasting by Dr. Charles Stanley

Nehemiah 1

Nehemiah’s brother arrived from Judah with some bad news: the Israelites living in Jerusalem were in great trouble. After hearing about their plight, Nehemiah fasted and prayed to the Lord for several days. During this time, he discovered God wanted him to ask the king of Persia for help.

Fasting is a spiritual discipline that helps us center our attention on the Lord and discover His will so we may act according to it. People fast in different ways: some abstain from food while others refrain from various activities. The period of time can vary as well. But the focus in each case is to be the same—to seek God and know His will.

When we begin to deny ourselves, several things happen. First, the Holy Spirit will enable us to set aside earthly matters. Relationships, work, and pleasure will take a lesser place in our mind as we concentrate on Him and His purposes. Second, our attention will shift from ourselves to the Lord. Thinking will become clearer, and our ability to understand God’s plans will sharpen because we are not distracted by other things.

Third, the Lord is probably going to do some spiritual housecleaning in our lives. His Spirit will convict us of sinful attitudes or behavior. Upon confession of our sin, we’ll be forgiven and cleansed (1 John 1:9).

When unexpected news greets us, we—like Nehemiah—may find our emotions in turmoil. He wisely sought the Lord through fasting and prayer. This powerful practice can also help us to hear clearly from our heavenly Father, who knows the best way through every situation.

Day of Fasting and Prayer – Saturday, October 13, 2018


Posted on : 31-08-2018 | By : wmb | In : Announcements & Ministry Opportunities, Churchwide, Events

In the book of Joel, Chapter 1, verse 14 we read the following;

“Consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly; gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord.’

Then in Chapter 2, verse 19, it says:

“Yes, the Lord will answer.”

God, in all His Sovereignty, has established that when we fast and pray He is committed to hear and to answer.

Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”

Our part is to pray, fast and seek His face. He will respond and when He does we may be blown away by the abundance of His blessings!

On Saturday, October 13, I am asking that all members join us for a day of prayer and fasting. I know you have many questions and I will be answering those in the days to come. Tentatively, we will meet in the sanctuary at 6:00AM on that Saturday morning. We will have about 30 minutes of worship before we return to our homes to fast and pray. Members will sign up for 30 minutes shifts to be in the sanctuary praying throughout the day. We will all return to the sanctuary at 5:30 PM for 30 minutes of worship to conclude our fast. Everyone will have a multipage prayer guide to direct us on how and what to pray for during the day. There will also be many scriptures to read and meditate on.

Will you commit to spend 12 hours with the Lord on October 13th. Most have never done this. He wants to hear from us as a church.

C.H. Spurgeon said, “Whenever God determines to do a great work, He first sets His people to pray!”
