I have to admit, I knew that John Wesley made it a lifelong habit to fast but I didn’t know there was what is referred to as “The John Wesley Fast.”

I discovered it in Elmer Towns book “The Daniel Fast.”

[Prior to the Methodist Conference where the ministers gathered for retreat, revival and preparation for continual ministry. Wesley and the other leaders fasted 10 days prior to the conferences with only bread and water to prepare themselves spiritually so they could teach the pastors.]

Interesting, I had thought during the 40 day fast that I would like to try a bread and water fast at some point.
