Prayer diary Friday 6 September 2013 (day of discipline and self-denial)

'The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them; and then they will fast.' 
Luke 5. 35

Reflection: 
Christ expected that his followers would take up their cross and follow him. This means the denial of self, some times in great ways, sometimes in little ways. The small sacrifice of fasting is a way of dying to self that disciplines the body so that the soul may draw nearer to God.
