Prayer & Fasting for August 2015
Fasting Focus: Do not eat any red meat. Only eat chicken, turkey, and fish. (like tuna, shrimp, crab, tilapia, etc.)
Prayer Focus: The vision God gave to Pastor Rob for Rock Church to be fulfilled throughout the remainder of this year. (See below)
Fasting can clear away confusion and fear so that you can hear from God and know what to do. When King Jehoshaphat learned that his adversaries were marching against him, he didn’t know what to do. So he did the first thing that came to his mind – he called a national fast, and he prayed to God. Jehoshaphat and all the people worshiped and sang praises to God, and God allowed them to defeat their enemies. (See 2 Chronicles 20)
When you don’t know what to do, try fasting first. It works better than worrying or running around for a solution. When you fast, you feel a sense of peace and rest knowing that you are doing everything you can, and ultimately God will provide a solution.
Remember that God is always in control.
