Begin where you are and take your next step!
- Consider incorporating a regular practice of fasting into your life – for instance, 1, 3, or 7 days, done at regular intervals (one day a week, three days each quarter, a full week twice a year, etc.). If you’ve never fasted, start with a shorter amount of time, and perhaps a partial fast, but as you are able, consider building towards longer periods of full fasting.
- During your fast, spend time reflecting on what you reach for and why. Identify the heart motives that are exposed during the process and use those as opportunities to pray, inviting the Spirit to shape that part of you.
