Anyone here ever went on a fast, then broke it pre-maturely? That thread about impatience is ringing in my ears right now.

I have, because I wasn't strong enough. I need to fast now, but I'm nervous about starting one.

I have before because i went to extreme with it I wasnt ready for that kinda of focus yet, now I'm able to fast without a problem if you still on it stay focus and pray when you feel you can't.

Peace

is it necessary to set the amount of days that you are going to fast?

Me, I know how you feel....and all I can say is pray and try again next time around.

I've had fasts where I held strong and fasts that I broke. I also had fasts that I bended the rules for. I'm a lot stronger and wiser now. If I do fast I will not make it outside my own limits.

Yes...cause before you fast you want to ask the Lord to help you through till that specific time is up...whether it be 12 hours 24hours and so on...

I have a few times. I'm not braggin about it, b/c it is shameful in my eyes. My downfall usually comes b/c of someone getting in my ear talking some sort of foolishness.

What do you guys usually do for fasts? What are ur usual parameters as far as like time and other stuff. I've never done multiple days and i've only done one on my own. (as a child we sometimes fasted as a family) So i'm pretty much a rook

Good that this subject comes up, cuz I feel like I'm due for a fast. :)

yeah but why even do that?whats the purpose?most of the ppl in here have broken their fasts......so it doesnt make sense...i would rather ask God for His blessings that i may be able to last as long as He wants me to.....

The longest fast I've completed happened when I was 16. And that was for 40 days....just water. The way to get through it man is to take out that time that you would usually socialize (while eating) and put it into building w/ God. Eating is such a social thing that if we take away the social aspect while fasting, we plug into God's power by building w/ Him dig?
