Dennis' 40 Day Fast
Featuring Dennis Jernigan Posted on October 25, 2010
Due to several factors (two surgeries in March, live recording in April, attacks due to my testimony (both from inside and outside the church), and the bottom-line need to get back to my first love), I went on a 40 day fast. From May 3 until June 12 I fasted and waited on the Lord. To help me through the fast I used a book written by my dear friend, Dean Briggs. That book is called Forty Days & Forty Nights: Fasting Toward Repentance and Rebirth. This book is a collection of daily meditations to grow in the discipline of 40 day fasting. Dean asked me if I would seek the Lord for a song for each day of the fast to go with his book as a companion piece. What a wonderful ride those 40 days became. The book, full of insight and wisdom, was a wonderful guide to help me gain levels of freedom and cleansing my soul desperately needed. I can’t wait for you to read it…whether you fast for a day or a week or for one meal, the book would be a wonderful addition to your life as a follower of Jesus Christ…useful for daily meditation on several levels. Each day I rose with great expectation and anticipation of meeting with God in intimacy. Each day’s song was a breath of fresh air to my soul. The book and the 4 CD set will be available soon!
