The Benefits of Fasting

I’ve been fasting fairly regularly now for about 4 years. Fasting is a big focus at my church. We usually fast for the first three weeks at the start of each new year, plus a couple of shorter stints throughout the year. I’m no martyr though, if I’m doing a long stretch I only usually fast until 6pm.

The best way I can describe the benefits of fasting is that ‘it clears the tubes!’ It’s like all the gunk and pressures of life get lifted away so that you’re really able to focus on God again. You feel God’s presence more easily and reading your Bible becomes a pleasure again! I may not necessarily see answers to prayer during a fast but I always come away with a renewed sense of hope in the goodness and provision of God.
