TOPIC: Benefits Of Fasting (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 4 June 2023)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Job 27, Job 28, Job 29, Acts 10, Acts 11

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 6:16-18 (KJV)

16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;

18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

MEMORY VERSE: “But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;” – Matthew 6:17

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES:Fasting subdues the flesh, strengthens the spirit and links it with supernatural.

PRAISE AND WORSHIP:Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit


MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:

In the Bible, fasting refers to the discipline of abstaining from food, or things that give one pleasure for a limited period of time, in order to give greater attention to spiritual matters Although it is often linked with prayer, it can be a spiritual exercise all on its own. In fact, fasting can be called “prayer without words”, in which case our time without food etc. should be an intense time of listening to God trying to gain a sense of His direction and meditating on His word (i.e., pondering its principles over and over to consider how they apply to specific situations in our lives).

The first benefit we want to look at is that it makes us to abstain from sin and all fleshly pressures which make it difficult to receive answers to prayers.

Dearly beloved, I have discovered that in our weekly deliverance programme, people who participate are compelled to do a three-day dry fast, which enables them to abstain from all forms of fleshly pleasure. By the time they finish and are going home, they always give testimonies.

This is due to the fact that the fasting takes them away from all the places of sin that they are used to. Fasting will give greater sense of belonging to those who do it because some things cannot be done without adding fasting to our prayers.

Another benefit that can be derived from fasting is stated in the book of Isaiah 58:6, “Is not this the fact that I have chosen? to lose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?” To fast means to be delivered from the grip of wicked powers and to undo or to destroy heavy yokes placed on the necks of people. During and after fasting, new things always start with those who do it wholeheartedly.



O God, arise and move my life from glory to glory, in the name of Jesus.

Mercy of God, come and speak for me, in the name of Jesus.

Powers of darkness in my environment, hired to stop me, I stop you now, die, in the name of Jesus.


O God of new things, begin Your work in my life, in the name of Jesus.

Today, I shall enjoy uncommon grace not available to others, in the name of Jesus.

Ancestral giant of my father’s house, release my glory and die, in the name of Jesus.

O Lord my Father, let my fasting begin to produce results of signs and wonders, in the name of Jesus.
