ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): ISAIAH 58:6,8; 40:31; MATTHEW 17:21.

MESSAGE TOPIC: THE PURPOSEFUL FAST
By: Dr Paul Enenche

MESSAGE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding what it takes to fast purposefully and profitably

We serve a God Who is a prayer answering God (Jer. 33:3)
INTRODUCTION – WHY DO WE PRAY?
1. We pray because God is a God Who hears prayers
2. We pray because God is a God Who answers prayers
3. We pray because God reveals mysteries

Fasting is an age long fasting of mankind
WHY DO PEOPLE FAST?
1. Religious – To fulfil a religious obligation or duty
This kind of fast does not necessarily expect any result

2. Emotional trauma (Acts 9:9; 27:33)
In times of trauma sometimes food loses taste and appeal

3. Circumstantial (2Cor. 11:27)
For example there may be no food in the house and it is converted to a fast

4. Spiritual and purposeful (Esth. 4:16)
This is where the fast is declared in desperation with clear and stated objectives

THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT PURPOSE:
1. Purpose is key to power (Gen. 32:24-28)

2. Purpose is key to pursuit (Hab. 2:2)
When the purpose is clear, pursuit is easy

3. Purpose establishes possession (Hab. 2:3)
If you can purpose it you can possess it

WHAT PURPOSE WILL A PURPOSEFUL SPIRITUAL FAST ACCOMPLISH?
1. Prayer fire intensification for drastic Divine intervention (Esth. 4:16)

2. Spiritual authority boost for victory over enemy forces (Matt. 17:21)

3. Spiritual capacity enlargement and enhancement for destiny fulfilment (Matt. 17:21)

4. Spiritual strength buildup or increase (Isa. 40:31)

5. Physical vitalization and health restoration (Isa. 58:8)

6. Spiritual yoke and bondage destruction (Isa. 58:6)

7. Spiritual sensitivity servicing and sharpening (Isa. 58:8; Acts 13:1-2)

WHAT TO DO TO AMPLIFY THE EFFECT OF THE FAST:
1. Pray abundantly (Eph. 6:18; Matt. 17:21; Dan. 9:3)
If possible, pray abundantly in the Spirit

2. Load up with Word (John 15:7)
Don’t let your spirit be empty

3. Bear fruit that abide (John 15:16)

4. Seek first the Kingdom (Matt. 6:33)
Pray revival prayers, put the Kingdom first in your service, finances and giving etc.

5. Intercede for others (Job 42:10)

6. Be in expectation of direction, revelation and manifestation (Hab. 2:1)
Be sensitive to Divine signals; sleep with expectation; study with expectation

7. Approach God in faith (Heb. 11:6)
Realise that this is a different season and that this time it must work!
