Guidelines for Fasting and Prayers for KHC Camp-Meeting 2016

    Guidelines for 7 Days Fasting and Prayer towards KHC Camp Meeting 2016

    1. Try and break fast daily by 6.00pm unless for health reasons.


    2. You may take water anytime of the day or fruits from 2.00pm

    3. Fasting without prayers is hunger strike or dieting. Hence, on Daily Prayer Page, you have to keep on checking daily for prayer points. Prayers points for the day will be available in the morning, while you can optionally drop yours as well  using comment form.

    4. You may use comment form to drop any question or if you have a word for the house in a general sense. You may also use comment form to drop prayer points if you don't mind so other members of the club can pray for you as they read through.

    5. The comment form can also be used to drop testimonies as the fasting progresses. Things will start happening even before the fasting and prayers programme is completed.

    Why do we need to fast?

    1. To seek the face of God

    2. To humble our souls

    3. To break yokes

    4. To help us hear God clearer

    5. To prepare us for the greatness ahead


    Take a look at this scripture:
    Isa 58:5-9 KJV
    (5) Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?
    (6) Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
    (7) Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
    (8) Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.
    (9) Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;

    Verse 7 specifically talks about giving during fasting. You also find Jesus mention a few principles I would like you to see in Matthew 6.

    In Matthew 6:4,19 - When you give...
    In Matthew 6:7 - When you pray…
    In Matthew 6:14 - When you forgive
    In Matthew 6:16 - When you fast...
    In Matthew 6:31 - Stay out of worry and stay in faith!
    In Matthew 6: 33 - Seek first God’s Kingdom

    This week of Fasting is also our week of Sacrificial giving towards the camp meeting. As you join in th fast, sow a sacrifical seed and believe God that this camp meeting will birth a new season in your life whether you are attending physically or joining online.

    Why do we need to fast?

    5. To prepare us for the greatness ahead

    I want you to know that your best days are not behind you; they are ahead of you! The devil thought he had you, but he missed it, for only the counsel of God will stand over your life. This next year will usher you into a new phase of your life, where the things you have been trusting God for, the things that seems far away, will suddenly be available for you!
