More Testimonies – Benefits of Fasting and Prayer

I was so wonderfully blessed of God through fasting and prayer that I cannot help but share my experience with you. I had joined a mutual loan club with some other ladies. This proved to be a bad investment and I lost all of my property including our house. In addition to that I incurred a debt of $20,000. Finally our entire family had to move into a small room renting for only $10.00 a month.

Testimonies about Benefits of Fasting – from Prayer Mountain

TESTIMONY

When I graduated from Bible school and began my ministry, you encouraged me to seek the power of the Holy Spirit through fasting and prayer. So, beginning January I, 1974, I decided to fast for ten days. Before this time I had fasted for one or two days, but this was the first fast of any length I had attempted. On other fasting occasions after three days my strength would be gone, but God gave me special strength during this fast, and I was able to minister regularly in the chapel at the prayer mountain.

Principles of Fasting

Wise words from Dr Ja Shil Choi, from her book "Korean Miracles":

 

Many scientists are forecasting that a wide variety of serious problems will be plaguing the earth by the year 2,000. These problems will be greater than at any other time in the history of man. Among these will be the problem of food shortage due primarily to the lack of resources and the population explosion. Some scientists insist that nearly one billion people will be starving at that time.

The Benefits of Fasting and Prayer – By Dr Ja Shil Choi

Benefits of Fasting and Prayer

For those who inquire as to whether fasting and
prayer may be profitable for them, I want to explain in
detail how fasting and prayer can benefit a Christian’s
life. There are many misunderstandings concerning
fasting and prayer; therefore, many do not fully
understand Its true meaning and relationship to the
Christian life.

Prayer and Fasting in the Bible – Dr Ja Shil Choi

Practical faith is rooted and grounded in the Scriptures. The Bible shows us the basic pattern for serving God and teaches us the proper approach to fasting.

FASTING AND PRAYER IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

God's chosen people, Israel, always had a special relationship with God. Israel's history is exemplary of men today. In times of ease God is often ignored or forsaken, but in times of distress and difficulty we earnestly seek His face.

The Meaning of Fasting and Prayer – by Dr Ja Shil Choi

Christianity is a religion of personal experiences. It is a spiritual movement, not a lot of theories or "isms." It is a movement of life, truth, the Holy Spirit, and love. The important thing is to have a personal, real experience. Through the right relationship with God we can recognize and understand the Lord's will. There are many ways in which we can experience God's blessings. I recommend fasting and prayer as the most powerful of these.

Preface to Korean Miracles by Dr Ja Shil Choi

Throughout church history many people have
experienced miraculous power through fasting and
prayer. Today, Christians who come before God in
fasting and prayer may find the same power others
have known in the past.

I thank God for the opportunity to proclaim His
living Word and to be a small part of His great program. I am humbly grateful for the moving of His
Spirit. As I share my experiences of the great power of God available through fasting and prayer, I desire that others may know joy and power as they kneel before the Master.

Korean Miracles by Dr Ja Shil Choi

I found a copy of this old presumably out-of-print book by Dr Ja Shil Choi,  the late mother-in-law of Dr Yonggi Cho, who is the pastor of the massive church in Seoul, Korea – Yoido Full Gospel Church. Dr Choi was the founder of Prayer Mountain in Korea.

This book deals with the power of God that may be released through fasting and prayer. It contains many wonderful testimonies. I saw no copyright notice on it, so I have taken the liberty of publishing it here on this site to inspire the current generation with wisdom from a great woman of God.

Prayer

Prayer is communication with God. Its important that we know how to get answered prayer. God answers prayers on His terms, and He shows us in the Bible what is required if we want to be sure of answered prayer.

We need to believe, because without faith it is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6)

We need to get hate sin in our lives. We can't love it and expect to get answered prayers. (Psalm 66:18).
