Setting Sail with Fasting And Praying in 2017
The Significance of 21 days Fasting and Prayers. We discover from scriptures that there are various kinds of fasting days. We have the 40days fast of Moses and even Jesus Christ. Moses fasted for forty days to receive the commandments or the law while Jesus fasted for forty days in other to return with power. Luke 4:1-14 Exodus: 34. 28. And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments. Matthew: 4. 2. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. We also have the one day fast proclaimed by Ezra for direction. Ezra: 8. 21. Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance. We also have the three days fast of Esther for divine intervention. Esther: 4. 16. Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. Another very vital fast is the 21 days fasting of Daniel. This fast is aimed at getting understanding and impartation of skills through angelic visitation. Daniel: 10. 2. In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. 3. I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. Daniel: 9. 2. In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. 3. And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplication, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes: 4. And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments; As we engage in this 21 days solem fast, let us look out for sparks of inspiration that would bring about understanding.
