From the Back Cover

"But when you fast...your father...will reward you."––Matt. 6:17–18

There is no way to measure the tremendous power released by prayer and fasting when practiced with right motives and in accordance with the principles of Scripture.––Derek Prince

About the Author

Internationally recognized as a Bible scholar and spiritual patriarch, Derek Prince (1915–2003) was educated as a scholar of classical languages at Eton College and Cambridge University in England, and later at Hebrew University in Israel. While serving with the British army in World War II, he began to study the Bible as a philosophical work and, as a result, experienced a life–changing encounter with Jesus Christ. Derek Prince taught and ministered on six continents for more than sixty years, imparting God's revealed truth, praying for the sick and afflicted, and sharing his prophetic insights into world events in the light of Scripture. He wrote over fifty books, which have been translated in over sixty languages and distributed worldwide. He pioneered teaching on such groundbreaking themes as generational curses, the biblical significance of Israel, and demonology. Derek Prince Ministries, with its international headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, carries on the good work that God began in and through him by distributing his teachings and by training missionaries, church leaders, and congregations through its worldwide network of offices.

Format: Paperback
The shortest explanation of fasting I've ever read. REALLY good examples from scripture. I highly recommend.

If you are looking for something shorter and references to lots of scripture on fasting, Derek Prince's book is the way to go! You could easily read this booklet in an hour.

(If you want a really meaty discussion with lots of personal examples, check out Mahesh Chavda's book "The Hidden Power of Prayer and Fasting" If you are seeking to draw closer to Christ's heart, I highly recommend reading Bob Sorge's "Secrets of the Secret Place")

Fasting is incredible. I am so shocked at how often fasting is discussed in scripture. It is like adding a thermonuclear warhead to your prayers. It humbles you and draws you closer to Christ's heart!

Format: Paperback
Derek shows that God requires that we HUMBLE ourselves before Him; God also makes it clear that He gives grace or blessings (unmerited favor) to the HUMBLE. Can you use a blessing from the Lord?

If you wanted to cultivate true humility but did not know how, this is the book for you. Succinct, Scripture-based, practical and powerful, this book is fast-paced and very brief. It has given me the clearest and most convincing reason to fast.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By honeybee on December 10, 2010
Format: Paperback
More of a booklet than a full-length book, this is a terrific little primer on the discipline of fasting and prayer. Referencing examples of Bible heroes--including Daniel, Jesus and Moses--Derek Prince explains the principles of fasting. He also gives practical advice on how to begin and end a fast.

If you or your church is considering a fast for any reason, this is a good resource. It is a quick, easy read, but helpful in understanding what fasting is all about.

Our nation must humble ourselves once again! Derek Prince shows us through this timeless teaching that we MUST fast... We must take control over our flesh in order for God's power to be fully released in our lives!

I am almost 60, have been a Christian since I was a young child. I have fasted many times over my lifetime. I felt lead to read up on fasting. This is a scripturally sound book. The focus is not on dieting, but on the relationship between a person and God. It is a very sound book on fasting.

I have read 4 books back to back on fasting for spiritual reasons. Derek Prince's writing was an easy read with scriptural backing. I appreciate the emphasis on gaining a new closeness to God verses another self help book.

I am new to his ministry but I miss that he is gone to be with the Lord. THANK YOU Derek and Ruth. LOVE the videos on YouTube. God has been leading my journey to Jesus and I am happy to be out of the darkness. THANKS for the guidance. God bless all of His children in Jesus name. The Church is all of us not buildings or religion. Stay safe and keep your heart on the prize.
