Pastor Sam shared from Matthew 6 which speaks directly about prayer and fasting. The radical concept embedded in the Lord's Prayer is the idea that we can call God "Father"--which was at the time unthinkable. The purpose of the Lord's Prayer is not for it to be repeated meaninglessly but rather lived out. As far as fasting is concerned, Jesus commands us to not make fasting a show but rather a matter of the heart. Let us take these reminders to heart as we launch into the third week of the annual fast!
