God calls us to fast. Fasting means to abstain from food or some food. By fasting, one shows discipline, humility before God, & faith. The Power of Fasting & Prayer states, “Fasting will break every yoke of bondage (Isaiah 58). Sometimes, fasting is a sign of humbling & mourning (Lev.23:27; Joel 2:12-13; Deut.9:25-29). At other times, fasting can be a praise offering to the Lord & it contains an element of joy and gladness (Psalm 50:14 & 23; Zech.8:19). Fasting is a help in intercession - other times, fasting is for personal requests, personal growth and victory over sin or just for situations of unusual pressure or oppression. Saints/believers can be “on one accord” by praying on the hour & pray the prayers at www.manifestthetruth.com/prayer-and-fasting.html. You can ask the Holy Ghost what type of fast you should do. Each week, you can do a different type of fast. You can do liquids only, give up certain foods like Daniel did for 21 days or the Queen Esther’s fast by eating no food or liquids for 3 days & 3 nights. You can gain spiritual growth by reading The Power of Fasting & Prayer or Biblical Fasting, which depicts the various types of fasts in the Holy Bible & the 12 blessings of fasting and prayer. Yeshua rose before sunrise to pray & prayed for an hour. In his book, “The Hour that Changes the World”, Dick Eastman discusses how to pray for an hour, which can be downloaded at www.ManifestTheTruth.com. There is power when 2 or more are gathered together & Jesus/Yeshua is in the midst of the prayer. We suggest all believers/saints pray Prayer #1-The Believers'/Saints' Commitment Prayer. Believers can go into the closet & talk to God.
Throughout the Bible the emphasis is on public fasts. Joel put it this way: "Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly" (2:15). Jesus also put an emphasis on fasting corporately. He declared, "Then shall they fast in those days" (Mark 2:20). He knew the church would be assaulted by the enemy from every direction and, therefore, urged the church to fast. Thus the primary form of fasting is a corporate fast. Secondary fasting is individual fasting.

Today Dr. Dixon holds a casual conversation on his observations about the misunderstanding on FASTING in the church. he makes an important distinction between a "Fasting lifestyle" and he helps us gain a better understanding of the book of Daniel as it relates to fasting. he drwas from his book: A Proclamation of God's Fast, Outskirts press.com, April 1, 2002
A Proclamation of God's Fast is one of Dr. Dixon's books that hasn't gotten the exposure that it should have. It's an anointed writing as well as a teaching syllabus for those who are eager to learn and understand the ministry of fasting and prayer. It's a learning tool that will increase your ability to fast and a desire to increase your anointing in the Lord. I encourage you to write for this material as it can only be ordered by writing Dr. Dixon directly at PO Box 1351 Cambridge MD 21613. Please the minimum cost of 13. 00
Apostle Dr. Dixon is a renowned speaker; very few possess the style and stamina in Ministry that he does. Yet, after forty years of service he has continued to build Ministry and Bible Schools throughout the world. Not only that, he is also a prolific writer and published author. His books have blessed thousands over the years of his time in the Ministry.
Today we will talk about fasting and some of the reasons why we should fast. Fasting is going without food, drinking, or anything that takes our attention and focus away from the Lord, such as television, family, work, or recreation.. We fast for various reasons. In the old testament people fasted before going to war, or when someone died, or when in distress or when they needed to hear from the Lord about a particular situation. Today we fast for some of these same reasons but mostly we fast to lose weight. If we are going on a fast during this lenten season, lets make sure that it is a fast to draw closer to the Lord and to hear from Him, to get direction, instruction or answer to questions we may have. Lets make this a time to really seek the Lords face and not His hand.
