Shaping History Through Prayer and Fasting Reviews

    Concerned about the course of our nation? Wanting to make a difference in our culture or the lives of individuals? This is the book for you.Speaking from scripture and personal experience, Derek Prince gives examples of the types of fasting and how believers can partner with God in shaping the destinies of entire nations and people through the discipline of "going without" and spending concentrated times in prayer. Not just the work of a few "super-spiritual" individuals, fasting and prayer is something all believers are encouraged to do.I highly recommend this book to all believers, but especially to pastors, lay leaders, missionaries and those who feel called to pray for our nation and culture.

    This book was given to me by someone I met, and since I was curious to do some more reading on fasting I thought I'd give it a try. There were certainly some interesting and inspiring things in it. I especially enjoyed learning about the various national days of fasting proclaimed by early American presidents. I was also challenged to pray for my government. But overall I didn't enjoy this book much. Prince doesn't do a very compelling job making his points, some of which seem just a bit overreaching to me. For example, the part where he strongly implies that his own personal weekly fasting led to the installation of Montgomery as the British general over Africa, and consequently saving the state of Israel, seems a like a bit of an extreme claim to make. I was even more surprised when he later implied that he and his prayer group were responsible (in prayer) for Stalin's removal from power through his death. To be honest, I actually appreciate that he sees prayer as being this powerful, and I agree that God could answer even one person's prayer on such a great scale. But it's a lot to claim that it was your own prayers that accomplished these things without providing at least some meaningful corroboration. That kind of reasoning really sinks this book, which is too bad since I'm sure Prince was a very devout and Spirit-filled man, and that he has a lot of wisdom to give. The fact that other readers have rated this book so highly suggests that he does have such a legacy.

    This book started out with an explosion! I was drawn in. But the rest of the chapters were not as good as the first. I enjoyed it though but it was not as impactful as The Fasting Edge by Franklin Jentezen. The title was more powerful than the content. But all in all, it was okay - at least it held my attention till the last page.

    I love to read and our counselor recommended this to me one day. Wow, for such a time as this! Really opened my eyes to the fact that many times I've glossed over the commands or mentions of the people praying AND fasting, just focusing on the praying part. Great encouragement, Christians.

    If Abraham can petition God to save Sodom for ten righteous people. How many people can the believers petition God for, to have mercy on the USA?

    This book is great! It helped me rethink how the church should face and react to current world problems.

    I love this little book. I do not agree with everything Mr. Prince promotes, but it is a strong book to motivate the christian to dedicate their life to these two spiritual disciplines.
