Fasting will bring us into a deeper, more intimate, and more powerful relationship with the Lord by helping us to develop discipline and sensitivity to his spirit. By removing foods from our diet, it trains us to exert self-control over our physical selves so we can cultivate the discipline necessary for spiritual growth. Furthermore, as we cut out distractions and press into God, our spirit becomes uncluttered by the things of this world and more sensitive to the Lord. Through fasting, we put ourselves in a position where we can gain a greater sense of purpose and focus individually and collectively. Our desire is that this fast will move all of us to a new level of faith and fruitfulness.
