Description: DISCOVER THE POWER OF PRAYER AND FASTING Many believe prayer combined with fasting is an archaic discipline practiced only by early believers. Yet together, prayer and fasting form a powerful tool, says Bible teacher Marilyn Hickey, for helping us to overcome evil, achieve wholeness, and experience revival. The benefits of prayer and fasting are both physical and spiritual. In fact, this combination is important to believers in every age because it:
- Inspires spiritual cleansing through intense contact with the Lord.
- Makes us more sensitive to the Holy Spirit's leading.
- Actually creates energy, tightens focus, and unifies groups of people.
- Promotes healing within the body.
- Breaks spiritual yokes of bondage.
- Revives our spirits to serve God.
In this informative biblical guide, Marilyn Hickey provides not only the "whys" of fasting but the "hows": how long to fast, ways to make fasting and prayer sessions deeply effective, and inspirational thoughts for meditation on those days. Most of all, she reminds us that this ancient tradition still brings believers closer to God-galvanizing spiritual growth while enhancing physical health.
Marilyn Hickey's "Why I personally Fast and Pray" - I not only teach people to fast and pray. I personally fast and pray. I have done so for the past fort-five years. Why? First, I have found that prayer and fasting go together like conjoined twins that cannot be divided. When I am in prolonged and fervent prayer, I automatically find that I have less desire for food - indeed, less need for food. When I feel a need to cleanse my physical system through modified forms of fasting, I nearly always find that I have a greater longing to cleanse all aspects of my life - especially my spirit- through longer and more intense times of prayer with the Lord.
"A fresh viewpoint that encourages believers to be sensitive to the leading of the Spirit... This is more than a guidebook on prayer and fasting, it's a call to the Church to diligently seek God for His manifest presence in our lives." -John Bevere (Author/Speaker/President, Messenger International)
