Pope John Paul II: Power of Prayer and Fasting

"Jesus himself has shown us by his own example that prayer and fasting are the first and most effective weapons against the forces of evil (cf. Mt 4: 1-11). As he taught his disciples, some demons cannot be driven out except in this way (Mk 9:29). Let us therefore discover anew the humility and the courage to pray and fast so that power from on high will break down the walls of lies and deceit: the walls which conceal from the sight of so many of our brothers and sisters the evil of practices and laws which are hostile to life. May this same power turn their hearts to resolutions and goals inspired by the civilization of life and love."

~ Pope John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae, 100 ~
