During times of crisis, a multitude of opinions flood our senses. It can be easy to allow others’ emotions, convictions, and words to alter our state of mind. However, we don’t need everyone’s opinions in crisis. The most important One we need to hear from is God.
We hear God more clearly in several ways. One of these is surrounding ourselves with people who hear from God regularly. Another, of course, is getting into His Word daily. But in times of crisis, we see throughout Scripture that God’s people also fasted as a community.
