"In our time people are longing for authenticity, particularly in their life of faith. Fasting nurtures authenticity. Fasting helps us draw near to God honestly and thankfully because who we are and what we desire are exposed. We can give those desires to God in intercession and confession.
Are you willing to embrace discomfort as you create space in your life? What would you like to learn from it?"
--Lynne Baab, "Fasting"
