"Prayer needs fasting for its full and perfect development.  Prayer is the one hand with which we grasp the Invisible; fasting the other, with which we let loose and cast away the visible."  -Andrew Murray

When Fasting is Inadvisable:

Q. Are there some illnesses or conditions that render fasting inadvisable?

A. In cases of serious undernourishment or nervous exhaustion, fasting is not recommended, unless for very short periods.  It should not be undertaken by diabetes patients, especially if insulin is in use.  Nor is it deemed advisable for expectant mothers.  If there is any doubt about fitness to fast, one should seek medical advice.
