Part Three: Be Organized
The third part of the game plan is to be organized. I understand that prayer is not a program; it’s a movement beginning in the heart of God. Still, your prayer time will benefit from structure because “God is not a God of disorder but of peace.” (I Cor.14:33)
1) Put yourself on a schedule. The more time you spend with Him in prayer, the more meaningful your fast will be.
2) Have your prayer focuses written down, a prayer journal to be very helpful.
3) Join us for daily devotions during your fast.
Part Four: Have an Expected Heart.
Forth part of the game plan is to have an expected heart. For God to answer our prayers, we must have a believing heart and ask according to His will. If we humble ourselves before the Lord, repent, pray, and seek God; if we consistently meditate on His Word, we will experience His Presence. This is what Jesus says in Mark 11:24; “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.” (NASB95)
Matthew 21:22; “And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
1 John 5:14-15 says; “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.” (NASB95)
Prayer and fasting can be beneficial both spiritually and physically. But we must be diligent in our preparation. I urge you to develop a game plan for yourself. Pray for the Lord to show His will for you. Pray to the Lord to give you a game plan.
