The Lifestyle

"Fasting includes restraints of our natural pleasures and/or strengths with the purpose of positioning ourselves to receive freely from the Holy Spirit.”
—Mike Bickle, Fast Weekly

The Lifestyle

Fasting is, by definition, abstaining from food. Fasting is part of the normal Christian life. It is often thought of as an optional discipline. Jesus said, "When you fast," implying that fasting occurred in the regular course of a disciple’s life.

17 When you fast…18 your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. (Matthew 6:17-18)

Many resources and instructions on prayer and fasting can be found on Mike Bickle’s free resource library of videos, teaching MP3s, and extensive notes.
