Join Michelle and I as we fast for Ryan. This will be a 24 hour fast starting tomorrow morning at 7am and ending on Saturday morning at 7am. A spiritual fast involves abstaining from food while focusing on prayer. Fasting demonstrates a profound need for God's help and guidance through complete dependence on Him. The goal is that in your moments of weakness, you turn to God for strength and pray for little Ryan. Michelle came up with this idea this morning while spending time with God. Here is what she read:
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:10-12 ESV)
What Michelle and I are thinking is that we want to put on the FULL armor of God. And one area that we have not put into practice is fasting. So we want to dedicate one day to fasting for Ryan and her complete healing as a way to fully depend on God for all our needs.
