Brian's Primary Talk

Good Afternoon Brothers and Sisters,

I have been asked to speak on how fasting and prayer strengthens my testimony.  On the website, it states, "To fast is to go without food and drink voluntarily for a certain period of time." 

Fasting combined with sincere prayer can strengthen us spiritually, bring us closer to God,
and help us prepare ourselves and others to receive His blessings.

Even though I have not started to fast yet, I know that fasting and prayer is important.

I have been taught that when people fast, they can pray for themselves or others that their 
trials in life can be overcome.  My parents fast and pray every month and I can't wait until I can fast.

I know that Heavenly Father blesses people when they fast.

I know the things that I said are true.  And I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
