What is fasting? How often should I fast? Is there a right and wrong way to fast? Are there physical benefits to fasting? Will fasting and prayer really help me live a life more pleasing to God? Those, and other valid questions are addressed squarely right here. It is unfortunate that most assume that the subject of fasting and prayer is esoteric (obscure, cryptic, mysterious, and restricted to the few). This book is intended to open the door of understanding for all who desire to know what the bible says about fasting and prayer. If this is your motive, you will not be disappointed because Examining Gods Purposes for Fasting and Prayer draws its conclusions directly from the Word of God. Once the reader becomes acquainted with the principles outlined in this book, he/she will be better equipped to practice this vital (and oft neglected) spiritual and physical discipline.
