King David was called "the man after God's own heart" even though he committed adultery with Bathsheba and murdered her husband Uriah. In Psalm 51, we learn the true repentance David expressed and how we can experience the grace and forgiveness of God no matter what we've done. Preached at Casas Church. Used by permission.

What is fasting? Fasting is a voluntary choice not to eat for a period of time in order to focus one’s attention on prayer in a significant moment in life. Fasting can make prayer more effective, can help us to focus spiritually and can interrupt distractions that control us.

Jonah's book reveals what we can expect when we say "no" to God's clear instructions. We head into a "storm" in our lives, we put others in danger. We face a "fish" disaster and we have to return to fulfill the original assignment.

Fasting is an opportunity to prepare ourselves for God to work in our lives and to answer our prayers. God is always ready. Fasting makes it clear that we are ready. We fast to change God's mind, to be healed from shame and guilt, to be released from things that enslave us, to be protected from danger and to enhance our worship of God.
