Description : *THIS BOOK HAS BEEN ADOPTED AS A TEXTBOOK FOR STUDY AT TRUE STANDARD BIBLE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE. "Your Guide To Biblical Fasting" is the result of over fifteen years of prayer and fasting at Victory Temple Church of God in Christ/The Evidence Church. I started giving our members instructions on fasting because they wanted to fast as the Bible teaches. But many were either diabetic, high blood pressure, over-weight or medically obese, full of toxins, arthritic, chronic pain and on medication, acid reflux and more... Very few started out strong and healthy enough to do the absolute fasts for any extended period of time, including me. So I sought God for directions and wisdom to put together answers and instructions for these members who wanted to fast with these pre-existing conditions. That was the beginning. This book is the result. __________________ Fasting is one of the most important and overlooked secrets to success with God that the Bible teaches.

Description : This spiritually-empowered book reveals the importance and power of fasting and prayer backed with faith in God. It is based on the authors spiritual experiences and observations within Christ-centered environment, and written under the influence of the Holy Ghost and with the wisdom, knowledge and understanding received from the Almighty God. Jesus said to his disciples: Howbeit, this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting (Matt 17:21). There is an increasing need for believers to have a closer relationship with God, given the ever increasing level of abominations and immoralities in this world. This book is meant to spiritually encourage believers to continue to intercede for the sick and the weak, the lost and the hopeless, and the unbelieving souls. Throughout the Scriptures, and indeed the history of humanity, true servants of God have fasted and prayed as they faced circumstances that were above and beyond human comprehension and capability, and as they were over-whelmed with trials and tribulations of this secular world. It is imperative that we find time for a quiet moment within our hearts to commune with God, and to have a dialogue with Him in our individual war rooms. This book will immensely help and encourage you in positioning yourself for a place in the Kingdom of God.

Description : As useful as books on prayer by human authors can be, actual Biblical examples of Prayer are even better. Men may tell us of their own experiences in their pursuit of God through prayer, and benefit us greatly.
