In my house the past 50 years, he has a wonderful family, I take a walk, a vibrant ministry continue to grow for His glory, and personal, is larger than any words I could write. He was oppressed, I have so many good things, is beyond my ability to respond adequately. Of course, that the Templeton Prize, received from Buckingham Palace in the hands of Prince Philip and Sir John Templeton in May 1996.
Templeton Prize for all products over $ 1 million was designated to encourage and to capture the world hundreds of millions of Christians to participate in fasting and prayer for the revival of the world. The use of these funds focus on reconstruction, will do more to help fulfill the Great Commission - many people Christ through fasting and prayer, and teaching them how to win and the other students - than any other investment, we can do .
After 45 years the focus of evangelization and to fulfill the Great Commission, and some people may think I'm going on a tangent and I emphasize fasting and prayer. The fact is that the best way to help people the gospel of Christ is the Holy Spirit to renew your relationship with God. Only fasting to the various aspects of 2 Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, my name meet low self-esteem, and pray seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven forgive our sins and their country cured "(International Edition). When you are humble themselves and pray and seek God's face, to leave their wicked ways, then things happen for you and your excited about the Lord's way, you have no other means.
If fast humiliation?
First, Christians say that the faster and improve their mental understanding of the department, a god to do more around the music world. God bless you and your unprecedented way to respond to his call to fasting and prayer an important part of your life.
Secondly, in a more intimate and profound of God, which is reflected in all other areas of life in the fast results. The joy of the Lord more visible to others, and to the cause of the highest to serve. Fasting and prayer to do more for the recovery of millions of people around the world to prepare for what we can do.
Third, fasting to prepare for the spiritual harvest. Today, people everywhere are hungry gospel. I have always believed, since 1944, I can assure you that God is a great and mighty, unprecedented in this century. This is obviously an important time of harvest. The doors of opportunity open all over the world, and God answered a lot of calls. Most people hear the gospel, in order to understand today than ever before in human history, the Lord.
Fasting has forced us to completely trust in God. CS Lewis wrote in his letters, the American woman:
"This is a terrible state of affairs (as you say)" God "alone, we all fear. Sure, it shows how, nearly complete, we have things, but the problem is real in our lives and is now so rooted , will not be able to open, for he left us nothing to do open ... Maybe these are the moments when they arrive, they are happy (even unintentionally) was forced to the earth, he began the practice of forced here, but my God, how difficult was not feeling well. "
When we fast, we go away from "something" every day of our deep concern and focus. At the same time we realize how much food and the world of things to our thoughts, time, activities and financial position to occupy. Some people may know that they want spiritual food.
It can be your spiritual bread and water to survive his? Are you ready for the enterprise, while the interests of humanity and have fun? Sure, there may be nothing wrong with the television, we see, magazines, commercials, sports, or even the numerous churches to read, take in our social activities. Yes, we are willing to spend some time to make, perhaps as long as 40 days, and focus our beloved Savior, our protector and provider, our God and King?
As we fast, God will be limited, and how we try to control our lives instead of letting him lead us in our areas of life. At the bottom of a cold fast in our hearts, transformation, and the right of his path.
When you fast, spending time both with the Lord. It is not wise to be fast, unless you arrange your schedule to spend time with the Lord every day special. For some people it may be necessary to maintain fast busy schedule. Although not ideal, honor the Lord and to seek services. Where possible, turn off all optional activities and schedule. Dinner time to worship the Lord, waiting for him. Pray in the early hours of the night when God will awaken. This quiet, distracted by the time you can hear your voice in a special way paved the path for you.
A person quickly, usually have more clarity and to reflect and understand the spiritual needs of God in a deeper level of discourse. God to meditate on the Scriptures, it takes longer to open their own day, the rich experience of prayer to begin our look at reading other materials, inspiration and more intimate communion with him to penetrate.
His desire for God and his own? Are you ready to open your heart and mind, your phone, fast and personal revival, completely changing our churches and our city, the rebirth of our beloved national prayer? This is the United States, again believing that "In God We Trust"? Strong protests from the church in this country, so the evil that was to expose and eliminate long-standing prejudices and greed?
