Shaping History Through Prayer and fasting
Christians have altered the course of history and governments by emphasising Biblical methods of prayer and fasting.
Derek recounts from personal experience how history was shaped through prayer and fasting during the Second World War in North Africa, the birth of the State of Israel, the end of the Stalin Era, and the independence of Kenya, East Africa. The initiative in world affairs is with God and his people. Learn how you too can implement change – in your family, church, city, country and the world, through these two powerful weapons – prayer and fasting.
Derek Prince (1915–2003) was born in India of British parents. Educated as a scholar of Greek and Latin at Eton College and Cambridge University, England, he held a Fellowship in Ancient and Modern Philosophy at King’s College. He also studied several modern languages, including Hebrew and Aramaic, at Cambridge University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
While serving with the British army in World War II, he began to study the Bible and experienced a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ. Out of this encounter he formed two conclusions: first, that Jesus Christ is alive; second, that the Bible is a true, relevant, up-to-date book.
