Jack, you are correct, but I have yet to find my circle of Christian friends who have even fasted in the past 10 years or so. It's kind of funny that when I say I'm having a prayer meeting, only one or two show up, but if I say I'm having people over to watch football, tons of people show up, why is that?

I thought dying to self was supposed to be a continuous process, not just a 3-day exercise.

Donna, if you have so many people show up for football games, maybe you should have a prayer meeting during halftime.

Jack, we pray!!! That's what we do at my prayer meetings. Each person takes a turn and some have a prayer list and pray for others, some pray for their family's salvation, and I lead in prayer for the nations, for our Preident, our Leaders, etc., So to answer your question what we do at my prayer meeting, we pray.

Turning on the Light in a dark room is not removing yourself from it. You are correct, you have to have the Light in the first place.

Robrt. Cute little saying but light has to be in darkness to get rid of it. Our instruction is to let the light shine in the darkness, not to remove ourselves and shine. I'm glad Jesus came right down here among us and didn't just shine from up there.

Donna. By your example of fruitfulness you should be able to rub off on the others and maybe the next time they will join you. I also think people need to be taught about this in order to understand it's usefulness.

This is a bad thing.

When Antichrist is revealed and the mark is required--don't kid yourselves; the church will still be here--only those who know how to fast will be able to stand.

Maybe you have the wrong sort of friends?

Of course, one might also wonder just what happens at your prayer meetings that so few of your Christian friends wish to come.

We don't get rid of darkness by joining it, but by turning on the Light.
