Congratulations!!! You did it. Here we are at day 7, the last day of our fast. I am sure there were probably some moments through out the week where you wanted to quit and just be done with the fasting thing. I am glad you didn’t give up.
I wanted to share one last bit of encouragement for all of you in regards to your prayer life. I would like you to take a moment and come up with one word that you would use to describe your prayer life. Do you have your word? It would be my guess that very few of you if any of you used the word POWERFUL or the word EFFECTIVE. But do you realize that is what God’s word says about your prayers.
Take a look at James 5:16 specifically at the second half of that verse. Look at what it declares:
The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
Look at what it says about your prayers. They are powerful and effective. You may have never thought about that before but that is what the Word of God declares about you. As we wrap up our week of fasting today I hope you will carry this truth with you through out the rest of year. When you spend time in prayer, pouring your heart out to the Lord keep this truth in mind. Your prayers are powerful and they are effective. So don’t stop. Keep praying and we will see God do miraculous things in and through our lives. 2018 is going to be an amazing year!
