- With foreword by Bill Bright
The hand-in-hand spiritual discipline of prayer and fasting is not a gimmick or a spiritual fad, although its neglect in recent decades makes it a new discovery for many Christians. Instead, as author Ronnie Floyd explains, prayer and fasting is a Scripture-ordained act of obedience—a means of humbling ourselves before God, drawing closer to Him, and making room for Him to speak and act in our lives.
This newly revised and updated edition of The Power of Prayer and Fasting offers fascinating firsthand stories of the difference prayer and fasting has made in Floyd’s life and others, compelling explanations of how this discipline works in a Christian’s life, practical guidance for those who have never fasted before, and finally a stirring call to revival.

A much needed and timely book (that) needs to be on your must-read list. If pastors and laity grasped the truths of these pages, we could see a great movement of God in our land.
It is true in my life, the gateway to breakthrough has been through intentional prayer and fasting. Never have a I sensed a great need for seeking and knowing God. This book will give you steps to victory.
In a day when so much of the church exhibits a form of godliness but will not submit to His power, Ronnie Floyd in The Power of Prayer and Fasting, opens the door for many to experience afresh the supernatural power of an awesome God.
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once asked, "In these days of exceptional evil, are you doing something exceptional?" In this new book, Ronnie Floyd will challenge and equip you to do something exception for the kingdom of God. I encourage you to accept the challenge!
The Power of Prayer and Fasting reveals the true end of this neglected discipline: it is a gateway to intimacy with God; not an end in itself. It doesn't change circumstances or situations so much as it changes us. My dear friend Ronnie Floyd practices what he preaches...and that makes this book worth reading and reading again.
