Praying is sometimes intimidating, but it shouldn't be. Using a Prayer Plan is one of the most effective ways to still your mind and stay focused on God.
Here are two simple plans:
Do you have a FASTING PLAN?
Fasting is also sometimes intimidating, but it shouldn't be. This is simply a predetermined time where you will intentionally abstain from something in an effort to be closer to God.
Intentionally abstaining from food for spiritual purposes. It is humbling your soul (Reference- Psalm 35:13, Matthew 23:12). Fasting brings you into a deeper, more intimate and powerful relationship with the Lord.
Fasting is an act of humility before God to seek His divine intervention in the events of our physical world.
It brings revelation by the Holy Spirit of our true spiritual condition, leading to brokenness, repentance, and change, and allows the Holy Spirit to work in a most unusual, powerful way.
It transforms prayer into a richer, more personal experience and draws you closer to God. (Reference James 4:8)
While the Bible specifically refers to abstaining from food, during a time of fasting, in our modern world, you can also benefit greatly from abstaining from other things, such as social media, television, etc.
NOTE: Always know your personal health and consult your physician if needed before you begin fasting.
