The Secret of Aslan
At least more than I thought. Chapter 1 introduces the wardrobe; chapter 2, the witch. Or in chapters 4, 5, or 6. And so the tension grows. Finally, in chapter 7, the boys caught a sniff, but Lewis was teasing them wonderfully as he describes a beaver in such a way as to make us think that we now may have come across the lion. They all saw it this time, a whiskered furry face which had looked out at them from behind a tree.
Then it disappeared again. The children all stood holding their breath.
The Glorious Inefficiency of Prayer
The four-year-olds in our house sat in stunned silence wondering if this might finally be the lion. Another spell then immediately follows the first. And now a very curious thing happened. None of the children knew who Aslan was any more than you do; but the moment Beaver had spoken these words everyone felt quite different. It was like that now.
At the name of Aslan each one of the children felt something jump in its inside. Lewis strings us along to chapter 8, when Beaver tells them more about Aslan:. But the word has reached us that he has come back. He is in Narnia at this moment.

I tell you he is the King of the woods and the son of the great Emperor-beyond-the-Sea. Aslan is a lion — the Lion, the great Lion.

From there, Lewis leaves us dangling as he switches scenes back to Edmund and the Witch in chapter 9. Then in chapter 10, the children meet Father Christmas, but he is not the highpoint of this tale. Aslan stood in the center of a crowd of creatures who had grouped themselves round him in the shape of a half-moon. People who have not been in Narnia sometimes think that a thing cannot be good and terrible at the same time.
If the children had ever thought so, they were cured of it now. His voice was deep and rich and somehow took the fidgets out of them.
You are never more like God than when you give. Prayer and fasting can build within you the character to give. Giving is a joy, and we need to be willing to pour ourselves out to those who can do nothing for us in life. We need to be willing to pour out ourselves to anyone, anytime, anywhere.
This is the heart of Jesus, and it needs to be our heart. Prayer and fasting build within you the power to give. Prayer and Fasting Leads us to Answered Prayer. As you pray and fast, you will call on God, and He will answer you. Answered prayer is the quintessence of praying and fasting.
My Experience, Part 2 – Further Evidence of God
If I were to share with you the five or six pages of the prayer journal I prepared prior to my first forty-day fast, and then walk you back through my journal since then, you would see one thing: My prayers were answered. They are still being answered. There is something to the disciplines of prayer and fasting. I could point you to every experience of long-term fasting where God has answered my requests before Him.
This does not mean they were answered as I preferred, but it did not matter. He had worked in my heart, and I was released, fully confident that God was ordering my way.
