First Time

I've always thought that fasting was a very personal and serious thing, and that it should be done for a specific purpose.  Because of this, I've never been in to "designated" fasts like Lent.  I think the act is more personal than that.  Up until now, I haven't had a cause that I felt merited fasting.  Then last night a friend of mine made a mistake.  I can't get it out of my head, I'm thinking about it all the time, and I'm scared.  So today, I'm truly focusing on God. No food.  No coffee.  Just water.  I pray my friend is ok!

I enjoy fasting although I haven't done it in a couple years. I started again today and thought I'd see what people had to say about it on EP. Yours is by far the best reason I've read yet to fast. Good luck and I hope your friend is well.
