The act of fasting is done to intentionally deny the flesh in order to connect in a deeper way to the Holy Spirit. This is the key to unlocking the impossible and tapping into the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. Fasting equips us to resist and rise above impulses of the flesh and achieve purity and alignment with the God. In Matthew 17:21 NKJV Jesus said, "However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting." Some things can only be handled with prayer and fasting. Fasting is an act that should be kept between you and God. It should be kept secret to the best of your ability (Matthew 6:16-18). In the case of a corporate fast the others involved in the fast will know but do your best not to share it with others. This is a time to connect with God, rather than boast to others about your spirituality. God will reward you openly for the things you do to grow closer to him in secret (Matthew 6:6).
