What Does the Bible Say About . . . .
PRAYER, MEDITATION & FASTING
Prayer! Communication with God, the Almighty, the Creator and Savior! After Adam and Eve sinned in the garden of Eden, man could no longer stand face to face with a righteous God. God instituted prayer to permit man to communicate with Him. Since then, prayer and meditation on His precepts and Word, have drawn men and women closer to God. He has provided innumerable answers to prayer, some miraculous, and some small. But no request is too small for the Lord to hear. And as this writer can testify, Prayer Works! God does answer.
This compilation looks at the way prayer and meditation, as well as fasting was used in the days of the patriarchs, prophets and apostles and throughout the Bible. A number of prayers are included in their entirety so that we may learn from their example.
