Jim Cymbala’s passion for the power of prayer is for me the over whelming message of Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire. As Pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle , Cymbala built a massive ministry from a deprived and struggling community. But rather than giving the reader organizational techniques, promotion ideas and tips on using technology to spruce up a church, Cymbala tells a story about the oldest technique for building a ministry: prayer.
I have never been part of a congregation which had a regular prayer meeting so to hear Cymbala talk about beginning a prayer meeting in desperation completely enthralls me. Through not only their small handful of believers faith in the Lord but also their faith in prayer, you begin to see the miracles in the hearts of broken people.
Let this book challenge you to examine not only the role of prayer in your church but prayer in your life. Do you really believe God can do great and mighty things through your prayers? If so, do you pray for great and mighty things? This is an amazing story written filled with the passion Cymbala has for the power of prayer.
