Friday Fast

Eat no food until 5PM.

Fasting is critical for two primary reasons–to tame our desires and to reorient our hungers.  Spend the time you would spend at mealtimes focused on reorienting your hunger toward God.  Ask God to tame the addictions of your heart and to focus instead on finding fulfillment within the good things of God.
