What is done in secret...

I fasted yesterday, consciously for the first time. I ate breakfast and I ate a light dinner, but there was an 8 hour gap in there when I only drank water and tried to seek God in prayer.

I want to do it again. I want a time when I can be reasonably still and focus my min on God and not by physical comfort.

I hear of people doing 3-day and longer fasts. Its a kind of contrition and worship I have never explored before.

What are others people's experiences of fasting?
