prayer diary Ash Wednesday 2016

Jesus said; 'when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that your fasting may be seen not by others but by your Father who is in secret.' 
Matthew 6. 17.18

Our Lord said 'when you fast' not 'if you fast.' Clearly then Jesus expected fasting to be practised by those who followed him. Why then do so many fail to follow this teaching?
