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"

"The Savior teaches that we will have tribulation in the world, but we should "be of good cheer" because He has "overcome the world". His Atonement reaches and is powerful enough not only to pay the price for sin but also to heal every mortal affliction… He knows of our anguish, and He is there for us. Like the good Samaritan in His parable, when He finds us wounded at the wayside, He binds up our wounds and cares for us. Brothers and sisters, the healing power of His Atonement is for you, for us, for all. "
