Why Fast? Part 3

Then I proclaimed a fast there at the river Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him the right way for us and our little ones and all our possessions (Ezra 8:21).

7. We fast in times of crisis
8. We fast when seeking God’s direction.
9. We fast for understanding and divine revelation.

Sometimes the breakthrough will be immediate, sometimes it will come after the fast is over. But know that every time you fast and pray in the anointing, something is happening! Sometimes the obstacles we face are demonic oppressions, generational curses or strongholds that are broken one by one before the battle is won. Keep on praying, breakthrough will come!

Take a few moments to think about your family, your work, or special prayer needs you are covering in this season of fasting. Do you have a loved one that needs salvation? A health need? A child who needs God’s revelation and direction for his life? As we fast and pray together, bring these requests before the Lord.
