Some people talk about it and some people do it. This saying goes double for Mahesh Chavda. He practiced the art of Biblical prayer and fasting for over twenty years before he ever started teaching it. And this practice has born fruit in his life.
From the improved medical condition of an autistic boy when Chavda was a social worker to miraculous healings and transformed lives by the thousands—his personal experience demonstrates that prayer and fasting works: that God brings into partnership with Him those who join Him in this way.
Chavda teaches that the Bible is clear that the overcoming believer is one who both prays and fasts—yet fasting on anything resembling a regular basis has all but disappeared from most groups of believers. Chavda believes prayer and fasting is a lifestyle God dearly wants for all believers, and that it is one that God blesses. Those blessings do not necessarily flow to the person practicing prayer and fasting (God does not have a frequent prayer and fasting rewards program!), but rather unleashes God's blessings on those for whom we pray and fast.
This book is filled not only with dozens of real-life examples of the results of prayer and fasting, but also serves as a very practical guide of how to do it. This book is not a casual read. The reader will be challenged to look into the mirror of God's word and examine their own accountability for participating in this heavenly calling.
But for those who want to be inspired to live on a different level and want to appropriate God's power to change their lives, their cities, and their nations—this book is an excellent choice.
