Fasting is a spiritual discipline that draws us closer to Jesus. Revised and updated, Fasting Forward shares relevant stories and practical insight into one of the most powerful, life-changing endeavors we may attempt in our walk with God.

Fasting positions our hearts to receive God’s directives and revelations. It produces in us a longing for Jesus, a readiness for His return, and a sensitivity to His presence among us now.

By slowing down and seeking God through prayer and fasting, we can accelerate forward into His calling for our lives and help position you to hear God’s voice and experience fresh insight into His word.
