I saw this in Time


Breaking the Fast
A lone man eats in a soup kitchen set up for Ramadan outside a public housing project in Paris.

I wonder how many Christians would be willing to fast and pray. I tried fasting for a whole month, I couldn't do it. I listened to a sermon by Derek Prince the other day about service. He said we need to be willing to fast and pray (an investment) to see God move in our church and family and nation. I don't think we need to fast a whole month, but maybe one or two meals per week would be a good place to start.

I'm pretty sure it's a sunrise to sundown fast, that they do eat at night, although they may restrict some foods during this time.
