Fasting is a denial of time. It’s a refusal to move forward with life. When we fast – if we ever do – we do it for a specific reason: there is something that we desire, that we want God to give us, and the world has no business moving forward until He has fulfilled our request. We simply refuse to accept the way things are. May the sun stand still, Lord, until this is finished. I will not bring sleep to my eyes until I have completed this task.
