Let these words of Charles Spurgeon challenge you to pray more and to plan fasting into your life this week:
There is a mighty effectiveness in these two gospel ordinances of prayer and fasting. The first links us to heaven; the second separates us from earth. Prayer takes us to the banqueting table of God; fasting overturns the indulgent tables of earth. Prayer allows us to feed on the Bread of Heaven, and fasting delivers our spirits from being encumbered with the fullness of bread that perishes.*
*Charles Spurgeon, Spurgeon on Prayer and Spiritual Warfare, 364.
