May Fast

Fasting Focus: Fast until 2pm each day. (Drink lots of water.)
Prayer Focus: Pray for New Rock Church- Phase III

Fasting is a Christian discipline that helps us spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially, and physically. It even helps our memory. I Corinthians 9:27a

“But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection.”

Emotional Help: Isaiah 58:6-9

“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? 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 side yourself from your own flesh? 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. Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am’.”

  • Bonds are things that hold you back or hinder you. Read Hebrews 12:1
  • To undo the heavy burdens means God will “tear off” those burdens that He never intended for you to carry.
  • The discouraged, bruised, and wounded go free when they fast. When we humble ourselves, God heals our oppression.
  • A yoke is a bondage or bad habit. Whatever yoke is keeping you in bondage and hindering your health and Christian walk, it can be broken through fasting.
  • You will receive revelation from God through your fasting.

    Concerning our prayer focus, whenever the church comes to a time of making decisions, choosing leaders, teachers, musicians, ushers, etc., we should fast and pray so the right decisions can be made.

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