The Power of Fasting in Prayer

Hebrew word for fasting: the humble submission of the soul to God
Jesus did not: abolish fasting, he lifted it from the legalism of the Old Covenant by the freedom of the New Covenant.
Fasting is: an outward act, which should only be carried out when there is an inward need. Matthew 9:14-15

The Purpose: To loosen the ties the world has on us and draw spiritual power from above
We Should Fast:
1. When we face strong temptations
2. When we need to make an important decision
3. When we have to plan and carry out difficult tasks

Acts 14:23 (Living)
Paul and Barnabas also appointed elders in every church and prayed for them with fasting, turning them over to the care of the Lord in whom they trusted.
4. When we are fighting a difficult spiritual battle
