Have you ever fasted?

In Bible Study this week we were looking at Psalm 35, and discussing injustice and persecution. The person leading the study suggested we consider fasting and asking God to show us how He would have us respond to these two issues in particular.

It got me thinking more about fasting. Don't know that I've ever heard a sermon on fasting? Maybe I've heard it referred to briefly but that's all. One of the ladies at playgroup said she and her husband fasted when they wanted to pray about his job situation.

Has anyone heard any good sermons, or read anything helpful about fasting? Read the brief passage in Matthew, but it doesn't seem to talk about the purpose or practicalities of it.
