Just a reminder about our fasting intentions. The spiritual disciplines are means to ends not ends in themselves. We fast not because we are spiritual for having fasted. It is rather that humble fasting opens possibilities for spiritual growth and ministry. It help us stay connected to our primal need for God. It helps cultivate in us an increased readiness, capacity, and ability to accomplish the Lord’s will in every situation.
May the Lord bless our fasting intentions and accept our imperfect devotions and prayers.
