Fasting is the deliberate and generally prolonged abstention from eating (and sometimes drinking) as a means of humbling oneself before God. The purpose of a fast is to draw near to the Lord. The purpose of a fast is not to lose weight, but to lose the weight of sin and the desires for this world. If you are seeking deeper intimacy with the Lord, deeper commitment to the Lord, and a desire to obey Him whole heartedly . . . then a time of fasting will benefit your Christian walk.
