Fasting is a form of true worship

"Fasting, accompanied by prayer, is a form of true worship. The Lord has commanded us to fast in order to help us draw close to him, overcome  worldliness, gain spiritual strength, increase our compassion, and prepare ourselves for service. Fasting is fundamental to our temporal and spiritual well-being."
