Fast Day 13 - Hold on to the Promise
On your thirteenth day of fasting, remember:
- Keep water with you at all times.
- Continue to meditate and listen.
- Cravings return.
Thoughts for your journal:
- What are the various ways you can experience guidance from God?
- Reflect on how you can resist more temptation in these next days as the hunger pangs continue.
Prayer Focus Day 13: Body of Christ
Christians all over the world need prayer. In China, believers meet in secret locations in the underground church. If they are discovered, they risk being beaten, tortured, imprisoned, and worse for their faith. In Ethiopia, believers are brutally attacked and suffer greatly when they refuse to renounce Jesus. In other hostile and closed regions, like Cuba and Vietnam, brave believers share the Word of God with others at great personal risk. Even in our "Christian" nation, the cross of Christ and our beliefs are constantly under attack. So, on this thirteenth day of your fast, concentrate in prayer on the body of Christ - those who are suffering and persecuted for their faith, those who are struggling to hold on to their faith, and those whom the devil wishes to pick off from our younger generation.
