So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. (1 Peter 5:6-7) Throughout the Bible, men and women of God humbled themselves before Him in prayer and fasting. For them, the spiritual discipline of fasting was one of the basics. Although it seems like this discipline is often neglected in discussions surrounding our faith, fasting holds the potential of bringing us to a place of deepening our connection to God.
