If you are not in the habit of praying often, it could be a very painful mental and emotional experience to fast.

When you fast you are ridding yourself of the joys of the flesh for a day and it reveals the emptiness in your heart that wants to be filled. Instead of filling it with food, fill it with Christ’s love. However, if you are not in the habit of praying often, it could be a very painful mental and emotional experience to fast . You may only feel the emptiness and suffering which used to be filled with the simple joys of food. This experience certainly gives new meaning to the phrase “comfort food.”

Fasting is a challenge to make God your comfort but if you do not have a developed prayer life you will certainly notice the emptiness when you are fasting.
