April Fast

Fasting Focus: Give up something of your choice as long as it’s not the same thing from last month. (food, drinks, snacks, etc.)
Prayer Focus: Spiritual Breakthrough
We need to humble ourselves before God daily. Psalm 35:13 says, “But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth; I humbled myself with fasting; and my prayer would return to my own heart.”

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

Why should you humble yourself?

  • It brings revelation to our spiritual condition resulting in broken and change.
  • It brings personal revival through the powerful movement of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
  • God will hear and respond to our cry when we come before Him with humility and brokenness. We must acknowledge and repent of our sins, ask Him to cleanse us by the blood of Jesus, and to fill us with His Holy Spirit.

    “Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.” Proverbs 16:19

    “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.” James 4:10

    “Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for ‘God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble’. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.” I Peter 5:5-6

    “Much prayer and fasting, much power; little prayer and fasting, little power; no prayer and fasting, no power!!”
