Today I am fasting and its incredibly hard right now. I equate it to resisting temptation. I've been richly blessed. I'm still struggling but I'm still trying- those go hand in hand I think.


"Yes those two do go hand in hand....but the trying part matters more than the struggling part.

To me...fasting is a prayer. I know that they are supposed to go together but over time they merged into the same thing for me. Prayer was communicating with my words and mind and emotions and fasting became a form of communicating with my body and emotions. It really brought the spirit+body=soul doctrine together for me."

"I too am fasting today, and it has been awhile since I've fasted. I am fasting first and foremost ot be brought closer to the Lord, to submit myself under His hand. I do have a question regarding fasting, yes, no food, drink, but is water allowed during fasting? Or is that a grey area? Thanks.. DaveC38"

" Is it possible to reclaim a life that through reckless abandon has become so strewn with garbage that it appears that the person is unforgivable? Or what about the one who is making an honest effort but has fallen back into sin so many times that he feels that there is no possible way to break the seemingly endless pattern? Or what about the person who has changed his life but just can't forgive himself?The Atonement of Jesus Christ is available to each of us. His Atonement is infinite. It applies to everyone, even you. It can clean, reclaim, and sanctify even you. That is what infinite means—total, complete, all, forever. "
