If today’s believers only knew the spiritual power in fasting, they would practice it more! Many people do not understand what fasting means to God and what it can accomplish in their lives. There is a strong emphasis on fasting in the Word of God. There are also many examples of the power of fasting in the lives of believers from early times up to the present. But today, the body of Christ has largely disregarded fasting. This is one reason why there is a lack of power in the church as a whole—with few miracles, signs, healings, deliverances and other manifestations of the supernatural to transform lives.
