After making the decision to approach her husband, King Xerxes as a means of figuring out a way to remove the death edict (extermination order) that had been placed on the Jewish people under Persian rule; Esther ask for all of the Jewish people in Susa (Persian Capitol) to join her in a three day time of fasting and prayer. Why would she ask for fasting and prayer after she had made the decision to approach the King? What did she hope to accomplish by fasting? We take this interlude to spend a week looking at the spiritual discipline of "Fasting" and what it means. Who is supposed to fast and why? Is it important for Christians today? Join us as we examine "spiritual fasting" and the power and potential it offers to all Christians. From Esther 4:15-17; Matthew 6:16-17; Isaiah 58:1-12
