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.
