Fasting Day 1: A Moment of Worship

Friday afternoon, I went for a walk to pray for Pursuit 21 and everyone participating. As one particular song began playing on my iPod, God gave me perspective: HIMSELF! Heaven and earth seemed to become one as I became captivated by the strength, and power, and wisdom, and beauty, and might of the Lord God Almighty!

I didn’t care what passersby thought – I couldn’t help but raise my hands in worship to the King!

As I continued walking and praying, I felt led to not only launch our fast with this song, but to incorporate worship music in the coming fasting posts.

As we fast, let’s not focus on food, our stomachs, our schedule or our causes for fasting, but instead, let’s focus on the KING!

PRAYER:

Father, thank you for your Son who died that we might not only dwell with you in Heaven, but that we might commune with you here. That we might become the righteousness of God in Christ. Today we hunger and thirst for your righteousness – for your presence, your power, your holiness. We long to be clothed with Christ – with the King of Kings.

You are worthy, Jesus! You are worthy of our time. You are worthy of our attention. You are worthy of our appetite. You are worthy of our praise!  You are worthy of our worship!

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise… To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” (Revelation 5:12-13)

Lamb of God slain for us, we are here to worship You! Not our appetites. Not our television. Not life’s demands. We honor You! We crave You! And we believe we will find You! We will taste and see that you are good! Bless you, Lord…
