What is Fasting?
Fasting is going without food to draw near to God for spiritual breakthrough. "Fast" comes from a word that means: "to cover the mouth" and it’s a self-imposed affliction or humbling of our flesh so that our spiritual senses can be prominent.
The reason you choose to fast, how long you fast, and which way you fast is between you and God and nobody else. If you feel led to begin fasting, begin with prayer.
