What does the Bible say about fasting? What are the types of fasting? What are some of the reasons to fast?

Key Scriptures:

Exodus 34:28 NKJV

"So he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water. And He wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments."

Daniel 9:3-5 NKJV

"3 Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. 4 And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, “O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, 5 we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments."

Daniel 10:2-3 Jonah 3:5-9 2 Samuel 12:21,23 Judges 20:19-26,33,36 1 Samuel 7:3-6 James 4:3-10 Isaiah 58:6-9
