Tag: Fasting



Is fasting ever a bribe to get God to pay more attention to the petitions? No, a thousand times no. It is simply a
way to make clear that we sufficiently reverence the amazing opportunity to ask help from the everlasting God, the creator of the universe, to choose to put everything else aside and concentrate on worshipping, asking for forgiveness, and making our requests known — considering His help more important than anything we could do ourselves, in our own
strength and with our own ideas.

Secret prayer and fasting


I think ministers, above all persons, ought to be much in secret prayer and fasting and also much in prayer and fasting one with another. It seems to me it would becoming the circumstances of the present day, if ministers in a neighbourhood would often meet together and spend days in fasting and fervent prayer among themselves, earnestly seeking for those extraordinary supplies of divine grace from heaven that we need at this day.
