Power of Prayer and Fasting…

February 16, 2009

I came across this in my reading today and thought I would share it with you as we prepare to focus our hearts on God in March through prayer and fasting.

In more recent times the evangelical church in South Korea has taught the rest of the world a lesson in prayer and fasting. The first Protestant church was planted in Korea in 1884. One hundred years later there were 30,000 churches. That’s an average of 300 new churches a year for 100 years.  Today evangelicals comprise about 30% of the population. God has used many means to do this great work. One of them is a recovery not just of dynamic prayer, but of fasting-prayer. In the OMS (Overseas Missionary Society) churches alone more than 20,000 people have completed a forty day fast – usually at one of their “prayer houses” in the mountains.
