Prayer & Fasting Guide

Mount Calvary International Worship Center Prayer and Fasting Guide

What is Spiritual Fasting?
Spiritual fasting is an act of humbling ourselves before God. We choose to do so sacrificing our natural appetite by willingly exchanging our physical comforts to seek Him.

Results of Spiritual Fasting
Fasting can result in a great move of God in the call for healing, revival and spiritual awakening.

Scriptural Principles for Spiritual Fasting

Joel 2, Isaiah 58:1-6, Daniel 1, Matthew 6:17-18

Fasting is a biblical discipline of abstaining from food and excessive activity for spiritual purposes. In Isaiah 58:1-6 the purpose of Spiritual Fasting is clearly seen.

The Purpose of Spiritual Fasting is:

· To prepare us for what God has called us to do.

· To conform us to the purpose and the image of God.

· To separate us from the influence of the world and the carnal man.

· To hear God without negative outside influence.

· To spiritually detox our spirit, mind and body of worldly pleasures.

· To equip us for the battle we wage against satan.

What Spiritual Fasting is not intended to do:

· Fasting is not intended to persuade God to change His mind. (Fasting helps us conform to God and not God conform to what we want).

· Fasting will not make you more acceptable in God’s eye.

· Fasting is not a command in Scripture. It is a Scriptural principle that yields spiritual results for those who exercise it through faith.

· Fasting is not a diet plan to lose weight. Remember, the focus and result of scriptural fasting is spiritual and not natural.

The concept of the Daniel Fast

Scripture Reference: Daniel 1:8-14, Daniel 10:1-3

The Daniel fast is an intentional discipline of suspending enjoyment through food taste or cravings. It is eating a small amount of plainly prepared food at designated times. It is an act of practicing the Daniel principles of “no pleasing bread”.

Spiritual Fasting Intentional Purpose

Breaking the will of the flesh through denying it of being satisfied through food choices.

Wisdom for Ending a Fast

When your fast has ended and you begin to eat normal again, use wisdom. Some people do really crazy things. During the fast, they save all the food they would have limitlessly eaten and destroy the spiritual health benefit derived from the fast.

Begin to eat slowly, not all at once and use this opportunity to develop better eating habits. Now that you have the flesh under control, this will be easier to do.

Apostle Gullage and Mount Calvary International advise all partners to consider their personal health needs, and confer with their personal physicians prior to starting this fast. Please, earnestly seek God’s guidance.
