The music that others have created for us is a gift, but if we are not mindful, we could forget how to make our own music to the Lord. If we are reliant on iTunes, CDs, or the radio for our praise, what will we do if those things are taken away?

This fast brings us into solidarity with many around the world who either can’t access music like we do or have had the privilege taken from them when imprisoned for their faith. This month we give up the worship created by others and use our own voice to sing to God.

Fashion your own songs of praise to Jesus this month.

NOTE: Feel free to participate with us in these fasts for part or all of the indicated month. Prayerfully select the fasts appropriate to your spiritual walk and stage of life and abstain from others. We hold a disciplined yet non-legalistic approach to fasting. Sometimes circumstances and relationships do not allow us to keep the letter of the scheduled fast. In that case we feast joyously knowing that fasting and feasting are complementary.
