  • Fasting helps clean out the system so as to be more "purer". Our body is a temple and fasting helps clean out the toxins. I have fasted, the longest I have fasted for was a week (I had a MAJOR prayer request).

  • I have fasted in the past, but it has been quite a while. I went 24 hours once with only water and juice. I did see an answer to prayer right afterward.

  • DH & I fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday every year, meaning we eat one full meal, and two smaller snacks/meals that do not equal one full meal. We also give up something during Lent. Sometimes we've abstained from cow, poultry and pig throughout Lent, sometimes we've given up all sweets throughout Lent, sometimes give up other things. And we abstain from meat on Fridays during Lent.

    But recently, since Easter? No.
