1 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting

2 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 Giving to the needy ‘Be careful not to practise your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

3 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 2 ‘So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honoured by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

4 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

5 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 Prayer 5 ‘And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

6 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you

7 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

8 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 9 ‘This, then, is how you should pray: ‘“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

9 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”

10 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

11 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 Fasting 16 ‘When you fast, do not look sombre as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.

12 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 Fasting 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18 so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father,

13 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 Fasting who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

14 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting ATTITUDE OF HEART

15 Praying & Fasting Philippians 2 Imitating Christ’s humility 2 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and

16 Praying & Fasting Philippians 2 compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above

17 Praying & Fasting Philippians 2 yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. 5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

18 Praying & Fasting Philippians 2 6 who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant,

19 Praying & Fasting Philippians 2 being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death – even death on a cross!

20 Praying & Fasting Philippians 2 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

21 Praying & Fasting Philippians 2 in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

22 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting ATTITUDE OF HEART

23 Praying & Fasting James 1 v 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world

24 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting ATTITUDE OF HEART

25 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 9 ‘This, then, is how you should pray: ‘“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

26 Praying & Fasting Matthew 6 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”

27 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting ATTITUDE OF HEART

28 Praying & Fasting Galatians Life by the Spirit 13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

29 Praying & Fasting Galatians 5 13 – For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ 15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

30 Praying & Fasting Galatians 5 13 – So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.

31 Praying & Fasting Galatians 5 13 – But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft;

32 Praying & Fasting Galatians 5 13 – 23 hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

33 Praying & Fasting Galatians 5 13 – But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

34 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting ATTITUDE OF HEART

35 Praying & Fasting James 4 Submit yourselves to God What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what

36 Praying & Fasting James 4 you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. 3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

37 Praying & Fasting James 4 4 You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.

38 Praying & Fasting James 4 5 Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? 6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:

39 Praying & Fasting James 4 ‘God opposes the proud but shows favour to the humble.’ 7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you.

40 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting ATTITUDE OF HEART

41 Praying & Fasting Leviticus 23:26-32 The Day of Atonement 26 The Lord said to Moses, 27 ‘The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves, and present a food offering to the Lord.

42 Praying & Fasting Leviticus 23: Do not do any work on that day, because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement is made for you before the Lord your God. 29 Those who do not deny themselves on that day must be cut off from their people.

43 Praying & Fasting Leviticus 23: I will destroy from among their people anyone who does any work on that day. 31 You shall do no work at all. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.

44 Praying & Fasting Leviticus 23: It is a day of Sabbath rest for you, and you must deny yourselves. From the evening of the ninth day of the month until the following evening you are to observe your Sabbath.’

45 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting ATTITUDE OF HEART

46 Praying & Fasting 2 Samuel 12: After Nathan had gone home, the Lord struck the child that Uriah’s wife had borne to David, and he became ill. 16 David pleaded with God for the child. He fasted and spent the nights lying in sackcloth on the ground.

47 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting ATTITUDE OF HEART

48 Praying & Fasting Isaiah 58 True fasting 58 ‘Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the descendants of Jacob their sins.

49 Praying & Fasting Isaiah 58 2 For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God.

50 Praying & Fasting Isaiah 58 They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them. 3 “Why have we fasted,” they say, “and you have not seen it? Why have we humbled ourselves, and you have not noticed?”

51 Praying & Fasting Isaiah 58 ‘Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please and exploit all your workers. 4 Your fasting ends in quarrelling and strife, and in striking each other with wicked fists.

52 Praying & Fasting Isaiah 58 You cannot fast as you do today and expect your voice to be heard on high. 5 Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for people to humble themselves?

53 Praying & Fasting Isaiah 58 Is it only for bowing one’s head like a reed and for lying in sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to the Lord?

54 Praying & Fasting Isaiah 58 6 ‘Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?

55 Praying & Fasting Isaiah 58 7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter – when you see the naked, to clothe them,

56 Praying & Fasting Isaiah 58 and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? 8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you,

57 Praying & Fasting Isaiah 58 and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. 9 Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: here am I.

58 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting ATTITUDE OF HEART

61 Praying & Fasting Acts 2:42 42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

62 Matthew 6 v Praying & Fasting ATTITUDE OF HEART

63 Praying & Fasting Psalm 40:6-8 6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire – but my ears you have opened; – burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require.

64 Praying & Fasting Psalm 40:6-8 7 Then I said, ‘Here I am, I have come – it is written about me in the scroll. 8 I desire to do your will, my God; your law is within my heart.’
