Prayer And Fasting, by Dave Carson

  1. 1. WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!
  2. 2. Why Fast? <ul><li>For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12 </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Fast – Acts 27:9 <ul><ul><li>On exactly the tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement; it shall be a holy convocation for you, and you shall humble your souls and present an offering by fire to the LORD. Leviticus 23:27 </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. How Does Fasting Work ? <ul><li>You shall afflict your souls KJV </li></ul><ul><li>You shall humble your souls NASV </li></ul><ul><li>... and deny yourselves ... NIV </li></ul><ul><li>Leviticus 23:26-32 </li></ul>
  5. 5. If My People … <ul><li>If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 </li></ul>
  6. 6. God gives Grace <ul><li>But God gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble .” James 4:6,10 </li></ul><ul><li>Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you </li></ul>
  7. 7. 21 Day Partial Fast <ul><li>At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over. Daniel 10:2-3 </li></ul>
  8. 8. Jehoshaphat 2 Chronicles 20:10-12 <ul><li>But now here are men from Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir ... coming to drive us out of the possession you gave us as an inheritance ... O our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do ... </li></ul>
  9. 9. The Situation! <ul><li>1. A great multitude </li></ul><ul><li>2. Coming to drive us out of our </li></ul><ul><li>God given inheritance </li></ul><ul><li>3. We are powerless </li></ul><ul><li>4. We do not know what to do! </li></ul>
  10. 10. The Solution! <ul><li>  Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the Lord, and he proclaimed a fast for all Judah. The people of Judah came together to seek help from the Lord; indeed, they came from every town in Judah to seek him. 2 Chronicles 20:3-4 </li></ul>
  11. 11. Biblical World View! <ul><li>O Lord, God of our fathers, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you. </li></ul><ul><li>2 Chronicles 20:5-6 </li></ul>
  12. 12. The Battle is the Lord’s <ul><li>He said: &quot;Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: 'Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's 2 Chronicles 20:15 </li></ul>
  13. 13. The Real Situation! <ul><li>1. A great multitude </li></ul><ul><li>2. Coming to drive us out of our God given inheritance </li></ul><ul><li>3. We are powerless </li></ul><ul><li>4. We do not know what to do! </li></ul><ul><li>5. But our eyes are upon you! </li></ul>
  14. 14. Our Eyes & God’s Eyes <ul><li>For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. </li></ul><ul><li>2 Chronicles 16:9 </li></ul>
