Fasting as a Type of Prayer

Pastor Juno continues our series on prayer by focusing on the significance of fasting.

Scripture: Matthew 6:16 & 9:15

Fasting

Will God love you more when you read your Bible, pray, give, or fast? Nope, God doesn’t love us based on what we do. But, participating in these ‘holy habits’ (or spiritual disciplines) will help us to connect with God more and love Him deeper.

While the Bible assumes we’ll fast, many people don’t take the expectation in Scripture to fast seriously. Perhaps this is because they may not know how to fast. This sermon gives you reasons why you should fast, as well as six practical ways to help guide you through a fast.

Scripture: Matthew 6:16-18; 9:15
