Topic: The Power Of Fasting And Prayer [Seeds of Destiny 16 September 2019 Devotional]
Beloved, fasting and prayer have the capacity to break down satanic holds (Isaiah 58:6). In fasting, the bands of enemy wickedness are loosed, heavy burdens are undone, oppressions are terminated and yokes are broken.
SCRIPTURE: Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. Matthew 17:21
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Fasting and prayer have the capacity to break down satanic holds.
In our anchor Scripture, Jesus tells us that there is a kind of devil that cannot be cast out except by prayer and fasting. And Jesus did not say we should go and fast at the sight of such devils. No! What he meant was that we have to fast and pray ready for such a devil. That is, living a fasted life, skipping meals as you are led by the Spirit. You may wake up in the morning and suddenly the appetite for food disappears, not that you are sick. Refuse to force yourself to eat; proceed into fasting and praying. Permanently charge yourself up and move like a high tension cable wired ready for urgencies. Refuse to live a life of crisis management. There are people who would not pray if there is no problem. They would not fast until they are threatened.
Beloved, fasting and prayer have the capacity to break down satanic holds (Isaiah 58:6). In fasting, the bands of enemy wickedness are loosed, heavy burdens are undone, oppressions are terminated and yokes are broken. So, to maintain a life of permanent liberty, engaging in periodic fasting and prayer is not negotiable.
I prophesy into your life, every spear or arrow from the kingdom of darkness against your life and destiny is broken. Your freedom is confirmed, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Fasting and prayer have the capacity to break down satanic holds.
- Set out at least a day in a week for fasting and prayer.
- Embark on a periodic fast monthly or as led by the Spirit.
- Endeavour to pray in the Spirit at least 1 hour daily.
