At the beginning of the year, almost all the Christian Churches organized days fasting and prayers.
Why? What are the benefits of fasting and prayers?
Fasting builds up our faith and connects us to God. It is an act of suffering the flesh to strengthen the spirit!
Most people and churches embark on it early in the year in order to take charge of the new year! Like the saying goes that " no one goes early to the river and come back with dirty water"they table their issues before the Lord early
It is necessary for spiritual development and growth.
Fasting is necessary because it tames the flesh and strengthens the spirit.
