FASTING Meaning: (To cover the mouth) to abstain or afflict the soul Biblical Basis: Fasting during the Pentateuch (Le v. 16:29-31; 23:27; Num. 30:13; Isa. 58:3, 5, 10). Why Do We Fast? Fasting was an important part of Jewish custom. In the Old Testament, when the Nation of Israel sought to hear Gods voice clearly, repent before the Lord, or conquer an enemy, they engaged in a collective fast (Daniel 9:3-5; Deut. 9:15-18; 2Chron. 20: 3-4). Kinds of Fast Spiritual, Biblical, Cleansing, Juice, Health, and Prayer Benefits of Fasting- Benefits are vast in nature and range from

health, spiritual, physical, and financial in nature. Prayer and Fasting Fasting removes the barriers that hinder our communication with God, and allows the spirit man to commune directly with the h eavenly Father. The psalmist says Deep calleth unto deep (Psalms 42:7). This is wh en the spirit of man and the Spirit of God kiss in Intimacy and communion. Barriers s uggest we have allowed others into our relationship with God. What fasting is and is not: Fasting is not just dieting on a regular basis. For the Christian, fasting has spiritual goals in mind. Fasting is helps us become sensitive

to God. Fasting is not a manipulative tool. You ca nnot fast in an atte mpt to twist Gods arm or win his approval. Helps us discipline our natural appetites, and fleshly desires. More power and faith
