Fasting: Giving up something for a period of time and replacing it with prayer.

 

“...This kind can come out only by prayer and fasting.” –Mark 9:29 (NIV) 

 

When Fasting…

1. Focus                                                                        .

 

“When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.” 
–Matthew 6:16 (NIV)

 

When Fasting…

2. Focus                                                                        .

 

17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18 so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 
–Matthew 6:17-18 (NIV)

 

When Fasting…

3. Focus                                                                        .

  

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” –Matthew 6:21 (NIV)

 

36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” –Matthew 9:36-38 (NIV)
