Prayer and Fasting by Ernest Easley

Prayer and Fasting
Ernest L. Easley
Mark 9:14-29

We are 21 days away from ''The Prayer Gathering'' that will take place at 6:00 P.M. in the Vision Center. We will come together that night to worship, to hear from God and to cry out to Him for spiritual awakening in our own lives and in the life of our church.

He is the only one who can meet our greatest need! It's not a matter of more preaching or more singing or more programs: it's a matter of more power, Holy Spirit power!

By the way, He woke me up at 3:30 AM on Tuesday and gave me the outline for this morning's message. I got up, wrote it down and went back to sleep. I'm praying and fasting for God *to give me wisdom in leading our church *for spiritual awakening in your life; *to give you a greater awareness of his presence.

We'll be talking more about fasting in a couple of weeks in preparation for ''The Prayer Gathering.''

I can tell you this: prayer power increases when accompanied with fasting. And if you don't believe it, look with me ...
