Fasting Facts●

Fasting and how it is helpful to lay a bridge of faith?

It is a common thing among Christians to fast and pray. And this is the most powerfull act of getting the spirit into the wilderness of the own and to rectify ones own mistakes. All these things are known and to be experienced by ourselves.
A fasting is the thing which helps us to realise what it is the most important in our spiritual life. And it also helps us to identify what and which is distracting us from the God.And it aslo guides us towards our eternal life. And this is only felt but never it is an explainable matter.


Whenever we pray, we ask our Father not to lead us into the things which are harmfull to our spiritual life ,but the fact is God never lead us into such situations. And He is not a tester or the one who tests un-necessarily. All the thing lays in us,when we completely give away ,means to submit ourself to the Almighty completely.
Yeah, it means complete supplication. No matter how hard your addiction or anything it is. Just be focused on What you are about to do. This is the time to wake up. Time to know the truth and time to take a severe action against all the obstacles that which are like a wall between us and the Lord.

Because these kind of things are not won or overtaken that easily. In the Scripture Lord says ..

And he said to them,”This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer
Mark 09:29

Here in this verse Jesus points that it cannot be done by anything but by prayer(in some ancient writings it is referred to the fasting).

Many people have millions of opinions regarding fasting. But being never a fasting prayerer i learnt what it is in just a few minutes. And am not argueing here that all match the same but i ‘am going to share what i feel.

We have to focus on what it mostly matters and what it is considerable. If we are with the flesh thoughts we can’t focus on the spiritual things and to get out of these we need God’s assistance and God will assist us definitely when we are with submissive mind.

14 The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. 15 The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments,
1Cor 02:14-15

If we are considerate of the human needs we are said to be not in the track of thinking Godly because God’s thinking are beyond. And all we can do is to reveal ourselves to us and that will make a point to our fasting prayer.


Here this ‘hunger’ doesn’t refer to the apetite. But it does help to feel the apetite for us to concentrate on the task with a constant focus.
I mean not eating any food is not a fasting. It is the supplication, but it is only a fasting when we kill the hunger of our inevitably gushing thoughts which are encouraging bad vigorously in our mind.
Such as various addictions and things which we love more than God. If we are somehow success in defending this we are almost there.


“And when you fast, do not look gloomy like thehypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
Mat 06:16-18

Don’t be the one who search for the excuses and sympathy anywhere. Whether its in your school ,college or office. Be the same as you were before in the normal time when you are not fasting. It is a human nature to get pitied by others and earn some points. But in God’s view these are countless.And be sure to appear as energetic as possible while you fast if you can’t take a leave.
