Fasting

Fasting is an important part of our spiritual growth, and one we are trying to put more emphasis on here at NewLife. It is a practice that puts us in a better position to hear God speak to us, and prepares us to obey God’s commands when He speaks. This page has links to some useful resources on fasting. It is a limited resource, and more can be found about the practical details of taking part in a fast for a short or extended period of time.

To start a season of fasting it is sometimes good to go through a time of preparation. Click here to view the “Inventory of the Heart” worksheet with verses and questions to ponder as you start a season of fasting and prayer.
