Here comes the first of what I hope will be a long list of kept promises. A while back I said that Fasting Fridays were going to become a series, not just while I’m Daniel-ing with my church at the beginning of the year. After some thought, prayer and reading the Wurmbrands’ accounts of prison life, I’ve decided to become OneWithThem.
I’m going to fast every week, beginning at 12 midnight Friday and continuing until 5 a.m. Sunday, a total of 53 hours, one for each country Voice of the Martyrs champions. I will consume only water (and sometimes gum) during these 53 hours and no secular media outside of the music I have to hear at work (which is mostly Spanish music from the 20’s so it’s not too bad anyway). My only exceptions will be during special occasions with family, in which case I may make up the hours another time in the week.
I will blog each Friday about what I’m specifically praying for and invite you all to join me in prayer, if not in abstinence. I can’t wait to see where this journey will take me.
Well, the first one starts now, so hang onto your socks and let’s do this!
