For those who are taking the 21 day journey of praying and fasting… congratulations! We have completed our first week. Let’s stay strong as we find our strength in Him. One of the benefits of a Daniel’s Fast is that it cleanses your body (do I need to explain?). Let me encourage you to seek God during this time and ask Him to bring a spiritual cleansing.
John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”(NKJV)
My prayer today is… “Oh God give me more of Jesus and less of me… Draw me closer to you… help me to empty myself of all of my selfishness and pride and be filled with your love and power. When I begin to focus on not having coffee or my favorite foods help me to be reminded of how you sacrificed your life for me on the cross… More of you Jesus… More of you!”
By the way, one of the songs that I’ve been listening to during this fast is “Give Me Jesus” by Jeremy Camp. Go to iTunes and check it out.
