Matthew 6:16 "And when you fast, don't make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting. I tell you the truth, that is the only reward they will ever get.
17 But when you fast, comb your hair and wash your face.
18 Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private. And your Father, who sees everything, will reward you."
The Bible doesn't say if you fast and pray! It says when you fast and pray. So fasting and praying is something that ALL of us are called to do.
It also says that we are to pray first for your country and it's leaders. My brother and sister in the Lord, we have got to deny self and do what our Lord has told us to do. We are to be obedient to the Word of God, not wishy, washy and do as we please.
If you love this Nation you will pray for her. So that we can led a peaceful life. Amen
1 Timothy 2:1-3
So take the time to pray for this nation with intercession the future of this Nation is counting on your prayers.
