I haven't fast for a long time since I have to take some medication for my irregular heart beat.Since I can manage to take my breakfast and take the pill right after starting from this week, I am able to do an afternoon fats from 12:00 noon to 6pm in this three days. I am glad I can do that all over again after two years.I do that with two different purposes. One is seeking the Lord Jesus for my direction and also the way out for some kinds of financial crisis. The next is optional because I feel that I am gaining weight in this month. Fasting can help me out for both of the issue.Well, if you have such an experience, you can share with me too.

That is really one sure way of seeking Jesus for direction and asking for help. I am sure my friend, one of these days you will get you answer. I do fast also sometimes. I would just eat a fruit at night and drink water. I do that to also lose some fats in my tummy. But i do fast also seriously on Holy Friday. I do that as what is required of those abled Catholics, but mainly as atonement for my sins.

We fast when we have our "big" event in the Church. We seek God's help and so we pray and fast every Fridays before the "big" event. At first I thought I wouldn't make it. But remembering God gives me strength to fast.

Hi wild! We all used with fasting especially when the fasting month is just a few days more!! Evne if it is not fasting month I used to fast a few days a week. Not just for religion purpose but it also good for physically and mentally health. Since we are used to it so it is not a big problem to do it frequently. But for those who have health problems they should consult with the doctors so that they could fast well without problems.(^^)
