Remember in the bible, people fasted all the time. Now we normally don’t fast unless there is a serious reason, like something happening to our Country, Terrorism, ourselves or a member of our family or someone whom is sick, then we fast and pray. During Lent, Catholics and some other Christians fast on Ash Wednesday and each Friday. We fast because: Fasting is a form of self-deprivation that deepens our appreciation of and longing for the food we really need. The reason why Christ’s disciples do not fast is because they have given themselves over to Jesus who is their Food. We fast in order to seek Him day after day and to desire more to know his ways. We fast so that this Lent Christ will become our All.
