Editorial Reviews


It is my privilege to endorse this book because in 1985, as the story in this book relates, I was miraculously healed as a result of the prayers of Dr. Jerry Falwell, Elmer Towns and 5,000 Liberty University students. Your reading of Fasting for a Miracle will give you faith to pray for others whom you think can be healed.
Vernon Brewer
Founder and President, World Help

From the day of Dr. Elmer Towns’s salvation until today, he has lived his life through the miraculous dimension that most people can only dream about. God answers his prayers! When you read Fasting for a Miracle, you will learn how to fast and pray in a manner that moves the heart of God for the miraculous to be unleashed in your life.
Dr. James O. Davis
Founder, Cutting Edge International, Co-founder, Billion Soul Network

I believe God answers prayers supernaturally, because I was fasting and praying when God led me to my future wife. I know that fasting works, and I want you to read the stories in this book and to fast for a miracle.
Daniel Henderson
President, Strategic Renewal

I praise God for this book that tells the miraculous story that I am alive. Because of the prayers of my father and Dr. Jerry Falwell, I lived through one of the worst accidents imaginable. Today, I lead the prayer ministry at Liberty University. Read my story and the other great stories in this book.
Charles Hughes
Prayer Pastor, Liberty University
