Feel free to join us in prayer and fasting every Tuesday.
Think Fast Tuesdays literally means to think about.. Or to occupy your mind with a strong focus on God and on what He wants for your life, rather than what we Think we want.
It’s surrendering all control of our own way of thinking and entrusting it all to God…it’s about changing your mindset from I Want To Marry That One! To… Lord, Who Do You Want Me To Marry?
Back in August 2010 when I started my week of prayer and fasting for my husband, I knew why I was doing it. Fasting isn’t about doing something to MAKE God move on your behalf…
God will do what He CHOOSES to do. But…He does love it when we seek Him and engage with Him. Fasting simply shows God that we’re willing to forsake or sacrifice something… In this case food… In order to be filled up with Him and to have more of His presence in our lives… To involve ourselves in a spiritual realm that is oh so very real! And to take dominion over all that God had promised to us.
I knew that God had promised me my husband and so prayer and fasting was my way of surrendering all sense of control regarding the matter over to God…And He surely doesn’t disappoint. The answer may not come in the form or package we may have been expecting… Mine sure didn’t lol… But today… When I look at my Mr B… I’m so happy and grateful to God that I surrendered the decision about who to marry over to Him through prayer and fasting.
So Tuesdays in the Busari Home, is our weekly Prayer and Fasting day. It’s so important to keep actively placing Christ at the centre of marriage… To consciously honour Him and uphold Him as the source of your joy, happiness, finances, plans, careers, goals, children and ultimately the source of the faith, the hope and the love that you have in your marriage.
Just as some women have sent in their prayer points and joined me in the Tuesday fast, feel free to join in from next week also. You can send your prayer points in via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and even if you don’t want to fast for the whole day, you can chose a couple of hours… There are no rules… I’m sure God can handle all the extra prayers lol… He is God after all! And as James 5:16 states, our prayers will avail much, providing we walk in obdeince and righteousness with God.
Faith, Hope and Love,
Mrs B Xx
