Week 29: Grounded
This daily post is designed to help you live into our New Room Society covenant of practicing daily prayer together. Below is today’s daily practice. If you missed the overview on day one, visit Week 29: Grounded.
Friday: Fast Like Jesus
“After Jesus had fasted for forty days and forty nights, he was starving.” Matthew 4:2, Common English Bible (CEB)
So, it wasn’t all feasting. Before Jesus began his public ministry, he fasted for 40 days and 40 nights.
Fast from at least one meal today. As the emptiness fills you, pray through what your life might be emptied of in order to make room for the life and way of Jesus. What practices are keeping you from practicing the faith of Jesus? Like Matthew, what will you need to leave behind in order to follow?
