I plan to do weekly fasting for a number of weeks. My fasting goals are getting closer to God, practicing the discipline of regular fasting, & preparing myself for an important ministry. I will appreciate your prayer for me for perseverance in fasting, increased sensitivity to God’s voice, and increased love for God.
I am starting a 36-hour fasting.
All are welcome to join me in fasting and post in this thread for mutual encouragement.

I applaud your desire to fast to grow closer to our GOD. I am sure this will increase your vision of our dependence on Him. I will pray for you! If you don't mind I would like to add for others, fasting doesn't only have to be just food. Try going a period of time without TV or internet maybe your phone. Fasting gives you time to focus on your spirituality and focus on GOD.

My prayers are for you and you to reach your goals.

Thanks to all who responded and prayed for me.

Blue ladybug, I am actually doing a dry fast. Please don't be concerned. I did a thorough research on dry fasting and I did it many times.

MrH, I don't turn to TV or internet entertainment or cell phone entertainment even when I am not fasting. Why would I do those things when KNOWING GOD is so interesting and thrills my soul? Why would I waste time on those entertainments when tens of millions are waiting for God's Church to save them from everlasting darkness?

levi, I appreciate your prayer.

Sorry if I offended you. I complementing you on your desire to fast. I was just trying to use your endeavor to encourage others that they could also fast. Not only food but other from other things also. Just to focus on GOD. I admire you and pray for you. A friend in Jesus.

thespiritoftruth, thank you for your prayer.

MrH, you did not offend me at all. I was just using the occasion to encourage fellow Christians to pursue the incredible privilege/pleasure of KNOWING GOD and to remember the Church’s privilege/duty to save the lost.

I finished this 36-hour fasting without much difficulty.

God, I give all thanksgiving to You for having sustained me in this fast.

I ask for a special blessing for all who prayed for me, who cared enough to respond to a fellow Christian’ prayer request.

I pray for danja to do fasting according to Your will. I pray for her to increase her delight in the Word during this fast.

I pray for all who viewed this thread and felt a call to do Christian fast. I pray the seed of fasting will mature in their life and they will practice fasting with a pure motive that is pleasing in Your sight.

In Jesus’ name.

Make sure everything in your life has been surrendered to God......if not, your fasting will invite the enemies' accusations to the Lord, which will invite testing in your life. I speak from experience. God bless you as you seek to honor Him in this way!
