Definition of the word fasting: means to fast from food and drink; act or time of fasting.

Psalms chapter 35 - 13: But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth. I humbled myself soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into my own bosom.

Psalms chapter 109 - 24 : My knees are weakling through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.

Jeremiah chapter 36 - 6 : Therefore go thou, and read in the roll, which thou hast written from my mouth, the thou shalt read them in the ears of Judah that come out of the cities.

1 Corinthians 7 - 5 : Defraud ye not one to another,it be with consent for a time,except that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

2 Corinthians chapter 6 - 5: In stripes, in imprisonment, in tumults, in labours, in watching,in fasting.

Matthews chapter 17 -21 : Howbeit, this King goeth out but by prayer and fasting.

Today's daily words of encouragement is Fasting; to fast means to abstain from food and drink and to be prayerful. We are taught from the bible on fasting; there's a right way to fast and a wrong to fast. The bible tells us to fast by putting on a joyful and happy face: and staying in our prayer closet. If you're fasting and looking sad and telling everyone, you might as well be on the street corner publicising it to the whole world.....like the hypocrites in the biblical days.  If we're fasting to show off for men, the bible says you already have your reward but if we're fasting in private with a joyful conscience, then our reward will be from God in heaven. The bible teaches us that fasting and prayer availeth a good thing.  If we have a pressing problem that needs solving and regular prayer has helped, then maybe you should consider fasting and praying about it.

Prayers can change any condition  but if we fast and pray, our prayers will be answered quickly, because we're giving up something or we're are sacrificing something for God ; Then, Jesus will  we step in and intercede on behalf of us.

A lot of good information on fasting. There is so many types of fast I've heard of but the most effective is the one with no liquids or food.

It is good to fast. I do occasionally but I do drink fluids when I do. It may not be a true fast but it is cleansing. Maybe the future holds a true fast for me. Thanks Faye
