There is nothing more powerful than fasting. Though it lasts for a short season, it brings long-term effects and blessings. This book is focused on the power of fasting to help you regain your edge when the circumstances of life deplete your spiritual energy and dull your spiritual sharpness. Best-selling author Jentezen Franklin sets the focus for the book by using the story of the student prophet in 2 Kings 6 who lost his ax head while working. The ax head flew off the ax and landed in a dirty, murky pond and sank to the bottom. Through this biblical example, Franklin will give us the steps to regaining our edge, which include:
1. Make up your mind to admit it is lost. 2. Confess that you have lost it. 3. Confide your loss to someone in a spiritual position to help. 4. Go the river (point of losing it). 5. Watch the power of God make your lost edge swim to the top of the murky river. 6. Pick up the ax and put it back on the ax pole (our part in regaining our edge; God will not do it all).

I would recommend this book as it is inspiring for Christians to fast and pray.
I was amazed to hear that fasting can include eating fruit and vegetables and not just drinking water.
the book is read and to me, it sounds just like Jenzen Franklin and I can picture him reading the book to me with honesty and from the heart.
The miracles that occured because of the fasting
Very encouraging book and I would recommend for every church leader. God is raising a remnant of men and women who are wanting to keep the passion for Christ burning. Thank you Pastor Franklin I'm inspired! Keep writing.
Tried it, it worked. Powerfully. Hard headed teen was baptized in 6 days amongst other blessings. still trying to coax my hair out of that blown back shape.
I love how Jentezen illustrate a truth we know about and moves us to the avenue for spiritual maturity. We are all looking for the things, the formula, and some the teaching to put us on track of destiny. It is right here. . Fasting! The Lord prove this during the four days hearing this book and fasting.
