prayer diary Friday 4 September 2015 ( day of discipline and self-denial)

Jesus said to them, ‘The days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days.’ 
Luke 5. 35

Reflection:
Thus did our Lord declare the ancient practise of holy fasting a necessary part of the Christian life. For it is in denying ourselves those things that God allows us that we develop the disciple to resist those that he does not.
