The Practice of "Fasting"

Why do you think people in the Bible fasted? Do you believe there is still a reason to fast before God, today? What is that reason? Have you ever fasted? What was the result?

I would love to hear your actual answers to these questions. I am not posting them for you to merely ponder, I would like some response to these questions.

God is good all the time. The prayer of a righteous man is still powerful and effective. His ear is turned toward His children. Where, then, does "fasting" come in?

Fasting has been for me a mournful response to some emotional or spiritual issue and choosing spiritual nourishment over physical nourishment
