Why fast?

“But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up. After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, ‘Why couldn’t we drive it (demon) out?’ He replied, ‘This kind can come out only by prayer and fasting.’” –Mark 9:27-9:29

Fasting is referenced in the earliest pages of the Bible, as God’s people strive for holiness. It is practiced by people of many faiths and cultures. Our faith teaches that by emptying ourselves, we will be in closer communion with God.

It reminds us of the plight of the poor and all of those who go without, physically and spiritually. Quite simply, fasting teaches us the difference between wanting and needing and helps us to focus our minds on what really matters. To this extent, great weight is given to our prayers and intentions.

Fasting and prayer can free us from addictive behavior and promote peace in our hearts and peace with one another.

With all fasting, we recommend starting incrementally and drinking plenty of water. Please consult your physician if you are unsure if it is right for you.
