  • I would probably repost this in Religions and Beliefs......It is about making a sacrifice and taking your mind and focus off of yourself and on God. You don't necessarily have to give up food, it can be anything you sincerely like, such as TV or your cellphone.

  • I think its supposed to help you to focus on prayer. Although all I'd be thinking about is food.
