Why do we pray and fast at Covenant life Church?
The Living Bible says: “When you fast declining your food for a spiritual purpose” (Matthew 6:16)
Jesus spoke these words to his followers to indicate that prayer and fasting was to be a regular part of their personal and community life. Fasting isn’t for a physical ‘detox’ or a part of a weigh-loss health program. It is for a spiritual purpose – to attune our hearts and align our faith with God’s purpose and will, so that what he wants us to both be and do will have full effect in our lives.
Prayer and fasting indicates to God that we really mean business with him!
