There are three ways that you can pursue God thru prayer, fasting and commitment.
1) Prayer – It a simple conversation between you and God !

God desires to hear from his children in prayer. Also, the bible states in 1 John 5:15 English Standard Version (ESV) 15 And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him. A personal example, I have been praying to spend more time with my daughter because I was working crazy hours at work. During this pandemic , God has answered my prayer I have had much needed time with her. God is a father who will listens to your prayers and answered them. Pursue God in prayer!
2) Fasting – When we fast, we are sustaining abstain from all or some kinds of food or drink, especially as a religious observance. It was important for you and me too fast. The bibles states Ezra 8:23 (NIV) So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer. During the fasting , we call on for God’s insight and understanding to a crisis, a concern or a conclusion to something. Fasting gives you clarity, confession and concept to something you may need or want. Pursue God in fasting !
3) Commitment -Stay commitment to your assignment or role! As a woman, stay commitment to the variety of roles you operated in as a boss, mother and ,leader . Stay the course on commitment during it all. Commit to God and he will commit to you! The bible states in Proverbs 16:3 3 Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established. Commit first and then he will help established your plans. God will take care of you ! Commit to God!
