Throughout my 20's I fasted and prayed on a fairly regular basis. Normally my fasting was from food, but when I got married, got pregnant, started having babies, fasting from food wasn't really an option.
Recently I was reminded that fasting and praying can be fasting from other things than food. You can fast from mass media, Internet, text messaging, phone, TV, and other outside things that remove our focus from concentrated prayer.
Do you fast? Are you intentional about not doing something for the purpose of prayer? When I've fasted from food in the past, I used the time I would be eating or preparing food to pray. Since I prepare so much food these days (three hungry boys require it almost hourly!), I think I am going to take a day and fast from the Internet for the purpose of praying, and enjoy some quality prayer time with God!
