A good book

on January 31, 2007

[Christian-locked]

I have been reading an excellent book by Mahesh Chavda, called “the Hidden Power of Prayer and Fasting”.

It’s brilliant, it’s biblical, and it’s really interesting and full of examples of amazing things God has done recently, as well as practical stuff about the how and (most importantly perhaps) the why of fasting. I read it in two sittings, couldn’t put it down, and am now going through it again slowly.

And since Lent is coming up, I thought I’d recommend it to you all.

While I’m on the subject of amazing things God has done, here is a song we have sung twice at church recently and which has really stuck in my head (despite having a rather odd tune). The lyrics are from the book of Habbakuk:

Lord, I have heard of your fame
I stand in awe of your deed, O Lord.
I have heard of your fame.
I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord.

Renew them – renew them
In our day and in our time,
make them known

In wrath, remember mercy.
