I liked your post about fasting: http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/aug2011/firecharger81.htm
By coincidence, on that same day I watched a Chuck Missler’s series of videos on YouTube and in one of those videos the subject of fasting was (collaterally) mentioned, referring to the Book of Daniel.
I think it was very interesting. The video is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhRMIXJeGuk (fasting subject starts at 5’50”)
The video is not about fasting, but about the origins of Evil.
Daniel prayed and started a 3 week fast and on the same day the angel was sent to him but took 21 days to fight the Prince of Persia and was delayed. 3 weeks = 21 days. Then the video comments that, which is interesting.
Maybe we could have much stronger prayers and spiritual lives if we fasted more. I confess I have much difficulty fasting.
God bless you, Firecharger. And please be careful with ‘absolute’ fasts because I had the impression that you are a professional driver and (if so) this kind of activity requires adequate nutrition, good rest and reflexes in perfect order. Take care!
Many thanks for your post.
