"this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting."
Seven Day Fast - Answered Prayer
“I was discouraged and didn't think I would make it through but God gave me the strength and I prevailed!”
I had been researching Freedomyou for guidance on fasting for relieving stress and establishing peace and strength. My job has really been taking the best of me and I felt I was going down a path of negativity that was ruining my peace. My job underwent some management changes that resulted in a lot of backstabbing and devilish ways. I was beginning to bring a negative attitude home to my husband and child. As I was snapping at my 4 year old daughter, her tears became my wakeup call for change.
I have fasted before with my church for 2 day increments, and one other time for a burden to be lifted. Both times I saw positive tangible results
This time I had thought about fasting for 2 weeks but just kept feeling a strange discouragement. I needed strength and guidance regarding my job. I felt God could not possibly want me to continue in such a negative environment as I was in. Finally I woke up one day with a clear calling to start. At the time, I didn't realize would become a full 7 day juice & water fast. I took time off from work for serious one-on-one time with God and a peaceful retreat. For the first two days I kept asking God how long should I fast. Then on the 3rd day it became clear that I was to go a full seven days. I was discouraged and didn't think I would make it through but God gave me the strength and I prevailed! I had absolutely no hunger pains or temptations. Well, to be honest one temptation and I immediately ran to a room closed the door and opened my Bible.
It is now been two weeks since my fast. I returned to work yesterday I got the news I had wanted, prayed and fasted for. A request for job releasement had not only been approved but with a good severance package and I have finally been compensated for a medical service related injury. In addition, I have already received a job offer and been contacted for thee interviews next week! God is good, I cannot stop praising Him! I want to climb a mountain and yell this testimony!
Breaking Demonic Strongholds
“Not only did the fast enable the eviction of the demons, but I started to feel the presence of the Holy Spirit within.”
I have been a Christian for less than a year and still deal with a lot of bondage due to a traumatic past which included a long list of foster homes. I had endured abuse and was raped at the age of five. The cruelty turned me cold and resentful causing me to become an abuser. This in turn resulted in a broken marriage, drug addiction, alcoholism, and a depraved sex life. In search of the answer I fell into the hands of cults who used brain washing and hypnotism. Their methods opened the doors for demonic activity.
A friend prayed with me to break the result of this manifestation and bring me to a knowledge of Christ. Their efforts were unsuccessful, after which fasting was suggested. I was told about the power and potency of prayer that can be obtained during a fast.
Not only did the fast enable the eviction of the demons, but I started to feel the presence of the Holy Spirit within me. Exciting and wonderful things started to happen after the third day of the fast. God actually used me to help put a marriage back together. I could feel the Holy Spirit directing me on what I must do and say.
Now I fast regularly to keep my spirit attuned with the Lord.
