Profitable Approach To Prayer & Fasting


As we all know that we are in the season of prayer and fasting. Knowing the right approach to it will help us to maximize the rewards of our engagement. In this post, I will be sharing with us the profitable approach to prayer and fasting. I pray that as you wait upon the Lord, you will never be eluded of your rewards in Jesus name.

What are the profitable approaches to prayer and fasting?

1). Come with thanksgiving – God hates Murmurers. The bible says, “do all things without murmuring and disputing “(Phil. 2:14.) Murmurers are programmed for destruction. Complain will complicate your matter. When people murmured in the wilderness, they were all destroyed by the destroyer.

2). Come with Prayers – fasting without prayer is a punishment. Prayer is the value offers in fasting. It’s the prayer that God answers in the fast. Fasting means fastening your body to edify your spirit. Fasting facilitates answered prayer. There are some certain mountains that will not give way until you enter into prayer and fasting.

Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.(Mat.17:21).

3). Come with specific expectations – the blind Bartemaeus was shouting for mercy. “Jesus, have mercy on me!” Hear what Jesus told him: And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight(Mark.10:51).

That was how his sights popped open.

Go straight to the point, that is what Jesus says. If you want a baby, which gender do you want? male or female? What type of wife, job or career are you believing God for? Try to be specific in your approach because God doesn’t take assumptions.

Sadly, many Christians come to God with no or vague expectations. Be specific. Don’t limit God in your expectations. Because our God is bigger than all our expectations.

For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.(Prov.23:18)

Your limited destiny is actually unlimited in scope. Jesus said, the works that He did, greater works you will do (John.14:12).

I believe that every new generation is an improvement on the previous ones. You’re a failure if you’re not successful than your parents. Greater than Solomon is here, Jesus was greater than Solomon and you are expected to be greater than Jesus. Move out of the box. Move with the cloud, everybody is moving.

4). Come with faith – Every provision in God’s kingdom requires a scriptural mate to deliver. For instance, when God created humans, He created them as male and female. When He told Noah to take the animals into the ark, He told him to take them as male and female.

You see, the word says, pray and believe and you will have your heart desires (Mark.11:24). When you pray alone and don’t believe, the result is not in view.

Therefore, as you are waiting on God in this fasting season, put your faith inline and you will see the results.

But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Hebrews 11:6).

5). Position yourself to hear from God – The sad thing is that many Christians don’t believe that they can hear from God. Solid faith comes by hearing directly from God. You can’t hear from God and doubt Him. The secret behind the faith of Abraham is that he heard directly. All over the scripture, you’ll see, “and God say”

We were all taught that faith comes by hearing the word of God. This is true. But faith comes more alive by hearing directly from God.

Some of the benefits you should expects in the course of this prayer and fasting season are as follow:

(1). Higher dimension of power – expect the release of power over all demonic powers. When Jesus fasted for forty days and nights, he returned with power, demons cried out His name and left their victims. He laid hands upon the sick and they were healed. Same order of power is expected of you.

(2). Divine surprise – expect God to make you a living wonder. When Jesus returned from the wilderness, people began to exclaim, “what manner of man is this!” We have seen strange things today!” ” even the wind obey him!”

(3). Divine light – Is.58 is a loaded scripture as far as the benefits of prayer and fasting are concerned. In (vs10),

And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday.

Manifestation is a function of revelation. The cheapest way to make things happen is to have access to supernatural insights. It’s not you that make things happen; it’s the level of your access to supernatural revelation that makes things come to be.

(3). Divine Speed – Your journey is faster when there is light. Darkness means stagnation and confusion. Anytime you pray and fast, it’s either you are walking, running or flying.

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Is.40:31).

(4). Divine Strength – Strength indicates long life, and strength is needed for exploits.

And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits (Dan.11:32).

Exploits is what eyes have not seen, nor ear heard before. It’s breaking limits by breaking old records and setting new ones. Appearing in church engenders strength. This is a divine secret.

They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God. (Psalm 84:7)

(5). Supernatural Restoration – I don’t know what the devil has stolen from you, God will restore them back to you. Which situation can be as hopeless as the case of Ezekiel.37, if God could jacked the dried bones in the valley back to life and restored the lost axe in the deep of the river, your seemingly impossible situation isn’t too late to be restored. Your health can be restored. Your wayward son, marriage, business and education will be fully restored

And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. (Is.58:12).

Recovery


Life is a battle field. We are fighting with the devil in order to possess and recover our birthrights in Christ. This is what is going on in life. Recovery is essential if you must fully enjoy your rights to possessions in Christ.

Recovery of all stolen items from the wicked

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill and to destroy: I am come that they may have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.“Jn.10:10

Many destinies have been rubbed by the devil due to the ignorance of this. (Hosea.4:6).

It is scriptural to be challenged to is unscriptural to be defeated. The scripture said that the enemies shall come like a flood but the spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against them.

….When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” Is.59:19.

There is no challenged free life, human beings are born to face challenges but the way we handle them are different.

Faith is the a key element for the recovery and possession of your inheritance in Christ.

It takes a robust faith to possess your birthright in Christ. The carrier of a robust faith will always constitutes a threat to the devil.

Above all taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench every fiery dart of the wicked.” Eph.6:16

Don’t think we are fighting with the physical, comparing spiritual things with spiritual, we are fighting with the rulers of darkness. Your insensitivity to this light will make you to be tormented by the wicked.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, and against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Eph.6:12.

Life is a battlefield between God and the devil, light and darkness, good and evil, truth and lies, sweet and sweat, abundance and hunger; success and failure; health and sickness.

You must put up a fight “fight the good fight of faith”. Because your father is a heavy weight doesn’t qualifies you as a heavy weight, you must build up your muscle and train hard to qualify as a heavy weight. If you don’t build your inner man with a robust faith by fasting and prayer, don’t expect supernatural restoration of any stolen items to come to be. 

The thoughts of God towards you are good and not evil. The truth is that God takes pleasure in the restoration of your shinny destiny.

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3.Jn.1:3.

“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, key them say continually, Let the lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.”PS.35:27

This is why you must put up a fight and collect your inheritances from the wicked holding down the release of your birthright. Fight the good fight of faith. 1.Tim.6:12.

Recovery all that the enemy have stolen

Fasting is another vital tool for the recovery and restoration of all that the enemy has stolen from you.

There are some inheritances that you may never retrieve until you fast.

Just like the way Esau sold his birthright to Jacob for a morsel of food- and many of us are blaming Esau for selling his birthright – many Christians are also selling their birthright today.

There are some yokes and mountains that will not let you go until enter into a fast. Fasting will destroys all oppressions of the devil against you. Fasting with prayer are the gateways to supernatural restorations of all items that the devil has stolen.

Is this not the fast that I have chosen to loose the bands of the wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke/and they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places. This shall raised up the foundations of many generations; and thou shall be called the repairer of the breach, The restorer of path to dwell in.”Is.58:6/12.

All stolen items/inheritances by the devil will be recovered as you enter into a fast and engage with the key element of faith.
