Fasting Resources

Fasting is withholding food of our flesh to instead feast upon Him the Father. It is savoring His word more than our daily bread. Ultimately, we fast as a longing for The Creator more than his creation. We fast as a posture of humility, crying, “Lord have your way in my life, have your way in our world. Lord, intervene! I want you this much, oh Lord.”
