Description : When God chooses a man, He never leaves him at the same place he found him. He takes him from glory to glory until the man becomes a living proof of His glory. God spoke to the author to go and preach the gospel. He heard His voice clearly and left everything to do His command. His goal for this book on the subject of fasting is to place a tool in the hands of God's people that will excite them to know their God, because the more of Him that is known, the more one becomes like Him. When God chooses a man, He blesses him. All God needs is cooperation--even as Abraham cooperated with God, and he was blessed. Cooperation with God will determine one's destiny.

Description : Job Knox, a Scottish Minister, theologian, and writer who was also at the center of the reformation of his country was known for his fervency in prayer. He was a man who tarried in prayer until he witnessed changes and tangible evidence of God's power at work in his life and his nation. About his nation, he prayed to God, "Give me Scotland or I die". His fervency in prayer did not only get desired answers and the attention of God. It also persuaded men and women to his faith in God. Mary Queen of Scotland (BLOODY MARY) said of him, "I fear the prayers of John Knox more than all the armies of England." Prayer is communicating with God. King David, the second king of Israel and Judah observed the engagement of prayer by those in the marketplace. Of the sailors, he wrote, "Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired haven." (Psalm 107:28-30). God moves in response to biblical fasting and prayer. God answers prayers that are in agreement with His will. His answers are not always Yes, but they are always in our best interest. John, having walked with Christ and witnessed His ways assures us, "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to God's will, He hears us..." (1 John 5:14-15). When we fast and pray biblically, passionately and purposefully according to the Will of God, Heaven responds powerfully with answers, miracles, blessings, breakthroughs, favours, victories, and open doors of unlimited opportunities. God's best for your life is ahead of you. You can: Experience more personal victories over the issues and challenges of life. See the fulfilment of the Will of God fully in your life, marriage-relationship, in the lives of your children, family and ministry. Learn how to encounter heights of spiritual power with God Almighty, and witness more miracles and breakthroughs in your daily life in this easy-to-read book. Get ready for miracles as you prayerfully read this book for the secrets and wisdom of biblical prayer and fasting!
Description : The hand-in-hand spiritual discipline of prayer and fasting is not a gimmick or a spiritual fad, although its neglect in recent decades makes it a new discovery for many Christians. Instead, as author Ronnie Floyd explains, prayer and fasting is a Scripture-ordained act of obedience—a means of humbling ourselves before God, drawing closer to Him, and making room for Him to speak and act in our lives. This newly revised and updated edition of The Power of Prayer and Fasting offers fascinating firsthand stories of the difference prayer and fasting has made in Floyd’s life and others, compelling explanations of how this discipline works in a Christian’s life, practical guidance for those who have never fasted before, and finallly a stirring call to revival.
Description : “And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you:” To obtain the “power,” the commandment given to us by Jesus: “Tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem (your present city) until ye be endued with power from on high” (Luke 24:49) must be obeyed. Many Christians claim the experience of Acts 2:4, but they have not attained the experience provided for in Luke 24:49. The progress so far is fine, but the deceiver still has many of us lulled to sleep, deluded, and self-satisfied, far from the goal Jesus intended for us to reach. I once owned an airplane, but owning an airplane and getting the motor going so it will take off with its own power are two different things. If you have the Holy Spirit, He still may not have sufficient sway in your life for you to have the advanced experience of power and the gifts of the Spirit. Many do not seek God far enough, and in quite the right manner to allow the Holy Spirit to exert His power, even though He has been received. Every evidence points to the fact that the early church and apostles put into practice what the church has failed to do today. Therefore, they had an experience that overshadows ours. Every single new testament church was founded in fasting and prayer. Acts 14:23. After Jesus said, “I send the promise of the Father upon you” He also told them, “Tarry . . . until ye be endued with power.” Where there is a lack of perfection and refinement among God’s people, as there is today, this power and the gifts of the Holy Spirit cannot very well be received by prayer alone. (If they can be received in this manner, I ask, where are they? Even in the days of the apostles, they too, found it necessary at times to employ this method to arrest the flesh and become refined in order to receive this power. They were in a state of perfection that far exceeded ours today. We believe many put into practice the prophet’s-length fast and obtained the power and gifts. Without following their example and deeds, we are without their mighty experiences. Consecrated fasting acts as a refining fire to the saint of God, and enables him to become purified and cleansed to such an extent he can obtain the power and the gifts of the Spirit. It actually requires a further process of purification and sanctified living to obtain and retain the gifts of the Spirit than otherwise. The best means of reaching that goal is to do as Paul asked us to do, follow him “in fastings often.” This volume endeavors to take what has generally been overlooked, and reveal, perhaps for the first time in detailed form, the secret of the early church. It is made so simple and easy of accomplishment that anyone can have an experience as dynamic as those of any of the apostles and followers of Jesus Christ.
