ALTTR INC. "EASY A" CHALLENGE PROMOTION
PUTING CHRIST/PRAYER BACK IN THE SCHOOLS
“EASY A” DEVOTION, PRAYER, FASTING INSTRUCTIONAL GUIDE
Throughout the bible we read of instances where people sought guidance, wisdom or salvation from God, using devotion, prayer and fasting as a means to receive that which they were seeking from Him. The stories of Esther, Daniel, and Jesus Christ are ones that quickly come to mind regarding this subject.
It must be understood that the denying ourselves of food or other necessities/pleasures in no way impresses God, or forces him into action on your behalf. The mindset that we should take into fasting is, as we deny ourselves of what our body needs, we in turn rely on God to sustain us. This is practical training on dying to yourself, which allows God to fill you, sustain you, and lead you.
Fasting trains you for the moments when you have a great need, to not rely on your own strength and wisdom to provide for that need, but to trust the fulfilling of that need to your heavenly father, or for him to direct you on how to fulfill it.
Some issues are just to great for us to solve on our own. Many times when we try to fix certain situations by our own wisdom, we make the situation worse. In essence, fasting teaches you to 1. Trust in the lord with all your heart: 2. Not to lean on your own understanding; 3. Acknowledge God in every decision that you make so that He can direct your path. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
At the end of the 10-days, Daniel and his friends were seen amongst many other attributes, to be wiser than not only their classmates, but also the advisors to King Nebuchadnezzar. If the instructions given for this challenge are followed properly, you will experience a growth in your ability to understand, retain, and regurgitate the knowledge that you receive in your classes. You will pass tests with flying colors, write term papers with ease, and rise to the top of your class.
This challenge is a way for you the Christian and the Skeptic, to see Jesus Christ work in your life like never before. We guarantee that participating in this challenge will cause you to believe in God or delve into a deeper relationship with him than before.
This challenge is not only for you to have a revelation with God, but for those who do not believe that what your doing will will cause any change in your scholastic life. You can pose this challenge to individuals in your class, having them experience the same thing that those who doubted Daniel did. This will cause many who are skeptical of you to want to know more about the God that you serve. You will no longer have to chase people down to minister to them in your school or on campus. After this challenge they will come to you, begging to know of the God you serve.
