What is Fasting?
The spiritual discipline of temporarily going without something that may be good, to more permanently go after something greater–God.
Why Do We Need to Fast?
Because we want to hunger for God more than anything. And even Jesus fasted, and invites his followers to as well.
Is Fasting basically a diet?
Simply forfeting food is not a biblical fast. A biblical fast focuses on an attitude of prayer, while often substituting time spent eating with prayer or serving others with good deeds.
What are the benefits of fasting?
Greater abilty to hear God
Intimacy with Christ
Greater dependency on God
Decreased desire to satisfy self
