Our Lady asks us to fast, especially on Wednesdays and Fridays.

I wanted to fast today until 1:00pm in the afternoon. However, all night I was anxious and could not sleep. I finally got up at 4:30AM and drank coffee while getting my mind off my worries on Facebook. I was just too nervous about life to sleep.
I am wondering if my mood was just a result of me not wanting to fast the next day, or if it was a spiritual attack to discourage me from fasting. I doubt I am of any significance that I am important enough to have spiritual attacks. It probably was me not wanting to fast the next day and caring the weight of my problems by myself.

You certainly are significant enough to be attacked by satan. The closer to God we get, the more he attacks. The Fr. Slavco prayer up above helps me when I say it the night before, as Fr. Slavco is a wonderful intercessor for us. Thank you for adding the links to his talks!

By the way, today is a feast day! The feast of the Transfiguration!
