Fasting Prayer

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (2007-2011)

We fast and pray to find God’s grace,

To know His will, and seek His face,

For Christ, by whom all things were made,

Himself has fasted and has prayed.


Alone and fasting Moses say

The loving God Who gave the law;

And to Elijah, fasting came

The steeds and chariots of the flame


So Daniel gained prophetic sight,

Delivered from the lions’ might;

And John, the bridegroom’s friend, became

The herald of the Savior’s Name.


Oh, grant us, Lord, like them to be

Found ever pressing near to Thee;

Our souls unbound by worldly care

Through earnest humble fasting prayer.
