Fasting Prayer…

A compilation from holy scriptures.

I shall fast but not show it
My countenance shall not betray me
I shall anoint my head and wash my face
That my Father knows my fast is only for him

I shall be humbled in prayer
With my head bowed on my chest
Fasting to loosen the bonds of wickedness
That the holy spirit may be rested upon me

Satan shall not break my self control
Nor inflict temptation upon me
No bread, no meat, nor wine shall enter me
That I may live not by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of the Almighty.

I shall discipline my body and keep it under control
That I may be true to my intentions
And, when my fasting is ended, I shall be hungry
Then I shall drink and eat to the glory of God.
