A Call To Prayer
Fasting
A Biblical Key To Spiritual Power
Fasting has been an important part of prayer and our relationship with God
in both the old and new Testament. Let us consider this passage of
scripture from the book of Isaiah to show the value and great benefits of
fasting unto God.

Isaiah 58:6-12 NKJV  "Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the
bonds of wickedness, To undo the heavy burdens, To let the oppressed go
free, And that you break every yoke?
7  Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, And that you bring to your
house the poor who are cast out; When you see the naked, that you cover
him, And not hide yourself from your own flesh?
8  Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall
spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The
glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
9  Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; You shall cry, and He
will say, ‘Here I am.’ "If you take away the yoke from your midst, The
pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,
10  If you extend your soul to the hungry And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness, And your darkness shall be as
the noonday.
11  The LORD will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a
spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
12  Those from among you Shall build the old waste places; You shall raise
up the foundations of many generations; And you shall be called the
Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In".

As we cry out to God in prayer for our nation while we fast,
He has promised that He will do great and awesome things.
If there was ever a time in our history when our nation and it's people
needed to be, "loosed from the bonds of wickedness" or to have God,
"undo from us heavy burdens" or to "let the oppressed go free" and that He
would "break every yoke of bondage" that has so many enslaved in sin,
it is today.

As we fast and pray, the Holy Spirit will give us the words to pray and
show us things to come. He will show us how to lead our nation back to
it's roots, back to the word of God and the fear of the Lord, back to a love
of righteousness and holiness.


        May God lead you and bless you as labor for Him,

"If My people who are called by My
name will humble themselves and
pray, and seek My face and turn
from their wicked ways, then I will
hear from heaven, and will forgive
their sin and heal their land".
II Chronicles 7:14
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses
yearning to breathe free,  
The wretched refuse
of your teeming shore.  
Send these, the homeless,
tempest-tossed, to me:  
I lift my lamp
beside the golden door".
