Why Jesus fasted


Matthew 4:1-7

Prayer for the day:
Dear God, help us to take time for prayer so that we have the strength we need to follow you through whatever life brings.

Question for reflection:
In what area of your life are you experiencing temptation? Would you be willing to face your temptation by trying a short period of prayer and fasting, and see what God will do?


~ Tim Heishman, National Youth Conference Coordinator
