Fasting & Prayer

Scripture: So we fasted and implored our God for this, and he listened to our entreaty. Ezra 8:23

Prayer: Lord, we thank you for hearing our prayers and for your loving mercy. May we fast and pray to You without ceasing, that our thoughts would stay focused on you always. Amen

Application: Fasting can be a powerful reminder of our mortality and fragility. As we fast, we should be spending time meditating on His Word and in prayer. It is a reminder that our soul needs feeding just as our physical body needs food to survive.

What is one action you can take today to renew your focus on God?

P.S. “And he listened to our entreaty” – Entreaty means (I had to look it up) an earnest or humble request. It is a reminder to pray in humility and with a pure heart. He hears us, even if he does not respond according to our plans or timing.
