Today is the first day of our 7 days prayer and fasting. I really praise God because my leave from the office also started today which means I'm not that stressed and I will not be needing loads of energy (very timely indeed).
We woke up at 10:00 AM this morning and we started reading from Psalms 23 and Deuteronomy 28 : 1-14. We prayed and we worship until 11:00 AM.
I know it is still not that much, I mean when you are in fasting you should spent more time with the Lord right? but I am thankful we already started.
Bill Bright from his mini book ' 7 basic steps to successful prayer and fasting" mentioned that we should set our OBJECTIVE. Why do you fast? so my husband and I agreed of the reasons why would we fast.
1. For our personal spiritual renewal (revival), spiritual awakening.
2. For God's direction in our lives
3. For the mission trip to Malaysia
4. For our church revival
We committed to just eat one full meal a day and totally give up any meat (pork,chicken and beef). It's not easy because we are used to having three meals a day but I know God will sustain us.
