Encounter God through forty days of fasting and prayer. Fasting advances our spiritual life, and Scripture encourages its practice. These times of physical denial help us grow spiritually and give us the opportunity to feel the loving embrace of Jesus. The Encounter is a practical, powerful guide to fasting and deepening your intimacy with God. As you walk through this forty-day devotional, you will experience the love of God daily, learn to tune out distractions in order to focus on his voice, encounter a profound sense of his presence, cultivate a tangible relationship with him, and receive fresh insight from heaven. Set your heart on a journey of sacred discovery as you fast and seek God.
