Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain
conceit
Philippians 23 (NIV)

Jesus did not say that your fast is invalid if
others find out. Hes talking about your motive
for fasting Dont fast so that others will know.
Do what you can to keep it between the two of
you. But if others find out, your heart motive is
not any less pure. Jim Luthy

What Is Fasting?
Fasting is going without something, typically
food, for a specified time in order to devote
oneself more fully to God.

of something better. Daniel Villa

I believe the power of fasting as it relates to
prayer is the spiritual atomic bomb that our Lord

and usher in a great revival and spiritual
harvest around the world. Bill Bright

Fasting is the most powerful spiritual
discipline of all the Christian disciplines.
