Fasting is a cleansing, a washing of the spirit. It cleanses the mind, knocks down ego, and raises humility. Fasting is a positive good, a washing rain leaving the air clear, therefore, the mind crisp, the haze in the mind gone with perception, no different than looking to a sky without clouds.
As high as the sky is, fasting from the heart is as deep, in that it brings prayer deeper still because it comes forth more deeply from the heart. Fasting is a positive good for the family, a killer of strife, and a birthing of love. Fasting brings holiness. Holiness brings God's blessing and favors. When you fast you are not doing something for God, He is doing something for you.
Very useful instructions. Have listened twice already. Anyone desiring spiritual fruits will benefit. Sacred passages are given regarding times of fast & how God came to their aid & protection.

I have been wanting to fast for a few years for spiritual reasons but did not know how to begin. This book encouraged me by directing me toward Biblical examples of fasting and it gave me the option of several different methods of fasting. I am looking forward to choosing a day and a method. I am hoping to see positive results in spiritual growth and spiritual well being. Hopefully I also will be stronger physically to serve the Lord.
