This is not a product promo to get your attention. What I share with you comes from 45 years of ministry experience. In addition, tens of thousands of committed Christians all across America will be engaging with this powerful practice this month in preparation for an unprecedented event, Awaken The Dawn/RISE UP, taking place on the D.C. Mall October 6-9.
When I ministered weekly to 2,000 primarily young people 15 minutes from the White House in the 70s, Bible teacher Derek Prince challenged us to fast, pray and simply obey the priority of praying for governing authorities “first of all” (I Tim. 2:1-4), and then pick up the newspaper to see our prayers answered. In childlike faith we responded and we saw, for the first time in U.S. history, a sitting president and vice president removed from office as unrighteousness was exposed! By the way, Derek once wrote a life-changing book entitled, Changing History Through Prayer And Fasting.
Fasting has a preeminent place throughout Scripture, yet scores ignore or avoid it. It does bring discomfort, yet we desperately need it. The benefits far exceed the drawbacks.
Don't change the channel! With the dire state of our nation and the church, it's time for us to rediscover this spiritual discipline that brings long-prayed-for blessings and breakthroughs from God.
“I HATE FASTING!”
