Congratulations!!!  You are at the half way point of our fast.  I want to encourage you to finish strong.  I know that you may be getting cranky or irritable but remember, fasting is about defeating your flesh and allowing your spirit to grow.  Hang in there you can do it.


Another thought to consider when we focus on prayer is that your lifestyle or behavior matters.  Take a look at what Proverbs 15:29 has to say about this:



The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of the righteous.



When we are righteous, which means we are right in our relationship with the Lord, He hears our prayers.  Think about it, the Almighty, Supernatural God who spoke and the universe was created hears our prayers.  How cool is that?  However, it can also be said that if we are not in right relationship with God He is far from us.  He is not listening to your prayers because your heart is not with Him.  Use this week to press in and seek to know the Lord more than you ever have in the past.
