A Journey to Victorious Praying
Did He [Jesus] remind them, but not to miss devotions for the day. No, He asked them to pray because He knew how heaven works.
Andrew Murray said, “We understand that our true aim must not be to work much; and have prayer enough to keep the work right.”
It is accurate to say that Jesus dose not command His followers to fast, but He certainly did expect fasting to be part of their lives.
D.L. Moody used to say, “If you say, ‘I will fast when God lays it on my heart, you never will.”
I like Donald Whitney’s suggestion to have a fast of dedication as an expression of one’s willingness to fast as the Holy Spirit would direct.
