Do you know what the hardest thing about fasting is? It’s not the hunger. It’s the ache.
A few years ago I felt led to start fasting along with my prayer. I remember reading that verse in the gospel of Mark where the disciples privately ask Jesus why they could not cast out the demon from the little boy with an unclean spirit. He says, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer and fasting.” (Mark 9:29)
When you’re all out of ideas and strategies and strength – maybe it’s This kind.
