Ready for Revival? It’s Time to Relearn Prayer and Fasting.


This book is for Christians who are waking up from the uneasy peace churches have made with the way things are. The modern church’s contentedness in maintaining membership rolls doesn’t compare with the early church’s zeal for spreading the gospel far and wide. For Christians ready for revival, it’s time to reintroduce serious prayer and fasting—not as sporadic irregularities but as serious habits.

Beyond telling us that we need to pray and fast, David Roadcup and Michael Eagle describe how these practices can become part of our daily and weekly rhythms. Christians must be realistic about common hindrances to these practices and receive practical help about how to move forward despite the inhibitions and idolatries which often get in our way. Prayer and Fasting combines biblical teaching, spiritual insight, and scientific research to help us intentionally pursue revival.

The power of the Holy Spirit has enflamed disciple-making movements all throughout history as faithful disciple makers have prayed and fasted. To help us powerfully impact our churches, cultures, and countries for Christ, David and Mike have prepared this helpful manual. Let’s intentionally and faithfully put their words into practice!

Every Christian seeking revival needs to read this practical primer on prayer and fasting. Leading disciple-making experts agree that acknowledging the power of the Holy Spirit through prayer and fasting is key for breakthrough. Roadcup and Eagle show us both the “why” and the “how” to this vital element of our faith.
