40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 31 -Afflict the Soul
To afflict the soul means to fast. Every Jewish person knows that is the meaning of "afflict the soul." What is the soul?

A Call to Fast to End Abortion part 2
When Jonah was sent into Ninevah, he was sent with the message: "God will destroy his city in 40 days." Ninevah was a pagan city, yet the Lord sent a reluctant prophet to warn the people. God didn't want to destroy Ninevah. He didn't delight in its demise, so he sent a man of God …
