Hi Zerich,

I feel that fasting should be started slowly. Maybe just skip a meal at first. We are going to encounter many obstacles from satan regarding this practice because God can use this little offering of ours and He delights in our forgetting 'self' for a while.

Many fast on bread and water...This is the best way but if you can't manage this then during the time you are 'denying self' take a little soup or fruit. It gets easier with time but you will have temptations at first.

When I started fasting I did it for 24 hours..From 6 pm to 6 pm the following day. I had a slice of toast during the day. This was no great fast but God saw my endeavour to please Him.

Fasting can be done in many ways.....You can fast from the TV etc.

God Bless You

When the disciples of John came to him, saying, "Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?" And Jesus said to them, "The wedding guests cannot mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them, can they? But the days will come when the bridegroom will no longer be with them, and then they will fast" (Mt 9:14-15)


Reflection:

As we await the second coming of the bridegroom, we are now in that perilous time when it is proper to fast. Through fasting we purify our hearts. In order to have a pure heart, we need the grace that comes from fasting. And when we totally cleanse our hearts, we are able to realize God's plan, and what He is expecting from us.

When we try to fast, Satan tries hard to distract us, to make us think, "Well, I could eat a little something extra." We have to pray hard this first time, really hard. When we pray and when we fast, Satan can do nothing to us. The second time will be easier, and the third time even easier. Then it will become natural.
