Page 11 of 365: Prayer Life Doesn't Stop in the End of Fasting

Praying should not stop after fasting.
The fasting period comes to a conclusion today, but that doesn't stop me and the rest of my crew to believe for the breakthroughs this year. There are three things we must remember as we are about to break the fast.

Firstly, we must pray continually. In 1 Thessalonians 5:17, the apostle Paul reminded the Thessalonian church to never stop praying. That should be our goal this year too. Secondly, we should persevere. Just like how Jacob persevered when he literally wrestled with God to get his blessings, we must hold on to His promises. And lastly, we should be expectant... Oh wait! The better term is ANTICIPATING. Although expectation and anticipation are synonymous, there's a difference between the two. In expecting, you are looking forward to a certain event, whether it's positive or negative, but in anticipating, you're optimistic and positive that the breakthroughs will come.

The fasting period may be finished, but I hope that our prayer life will continue.

Read Acts 12:1-17, Exodus 17:11, 12, Genesis 20:17, 18, Genesis 32:24-28, Judges 13:8-13, Luke 2:21-24, 39, Deuteronomy 4:5-9, Proverbs 22:6
