Fasting is the spiritual discipline of reality, the interior posture of recognizing how radically we depend on God—choosing the hungers of reliance and desperation even when circumstances may be okay. The truth is, we are always in desperate need of God, though conditions or surroundings may buffer and conceal it. Fasting pierces that veil.
In this short guide to fasting and prayer, Bill Bright offers both spiritual guidance and practical ways to launch into and break a fast. In this Seedbed Short, you’ll find everything you need to begin this enriching spiritual discipline.
