year, I began the 21-day fast with Free Chapel, believing God for my wife’s
healing. She had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma cancer two years
prior, an “incurable” cancer which prevents the body from making red blood
cells. Her red blood counts were low and there were no iron stores in her bone
marrow. Although I have previously fasted for periods of 24 hours, I have never
fasted for an extended period of time. We attended the Healing Service and were
overcome by the presence of the Holy Spirit.
following August, my wife’s oncologist recommended another bone marrow biopsy.
Though her blood tests showed signs of a more aggressive cancer, we continued
to pray, knowing that God has the power to heal in the blink of an eye. Later that
month we went back to the oncologist’s office for the results of the biopsy.
The doctor had great news—there was no evidence of any cancer! Immediately, my
wife and I said “Thank you Jesus!” Not only was the “incurable” cancer gone,
but there were also iron stores in her bone marrow. God is the Great Physician
who has blessed us.
wanted to share this testimony with you because we firmly believe that the
21-day fast, the laying of hands and prayers were integral parts of my wife’s
miracle. I never thought I would be saying this, but I can’t wait until the
fast this January!
retired player for the Atlanta Braves came up to give a testimony one Sunday.
He had been in the major leagues for about 14 years when he retired. But he had
been hooked on chewing tobacco for 23 years. He wanted to quit and had tried
many times. He was involved in his church, and had a passion for youth
ministry, but didn’t feel like he could fully be used because of the power the
addiction had over his life.
wife encouraged him to join our annual 21-day fast in January. He had never
fasted before and was honest enough to admit that he really didn’t want to
start. But he decided to try anyway.
the third day of the fast, he stopped for gas and bought five cans of tobacco.
As he was walking out of the store, he felt like he heard God speak to his
heart for the first time in his life. The words were simple and to the point:
“Throw it away and you’ll never want it again.” He continued walking, got in
his car and pulled onto the highway.
he drove, he began to talk to God. He said, “Lord, I have tried this so many
times and it just doesn’t work.” He had traveled about a mile when God spoke to
him again, “Throw it away, and you’ll never want it again.” There was no
mistaking the door of opportunity that the Holy Spirit was swinging open for
him. He drove home and immediately threw all five unopened cans of tobacco in
the trashcan. From that moment on, true to God’s word, he has never wanted it
am so excited about what the Lord is doing in our lives I just had to share it!
My husband and I felt the Lord lead us to do the 21-day Daniel fast along with
your church—and let me tell you, it has been miracle after miracle.
48 years of smoking cigarettes, my mother quit! Then, my brother called and has
decided to give church another try after 30 years! My husband and I heard the
call of God to begin a ministry for troubled young girls. Friends of ours who
were going to divorce are trying to work things out…and the list continues to
include deliverance from an eating disorder, deliverance from shame and guilt
due to childhood “issues”, healing of a colon and digestive system just to name
is so good! Seek God earnestly and watch what happens. Thank you again for your
messages that speak to our hearts!
just had to let you know how God blessed our family as a result of the 21-day
Daniel fast we participated in with Free Chapel. A season of difficult
circumstances left us paying seven different medical bills a month, not to
mention credit card bills, car and house payments. My husband sometimes works
60 hours a week and because he is salaried, doesn’t receive overtime pay. When
it looked like he was being overlooked for a raise, he considered leaving, but
God prevented him from doing anything at that time.
after, my husband was called in for an employee review, which he hadn’t had in
four years. His boss told him that he was amazed at how much he was able to
accomplish and that his work had been wonderful. His boss then handed him his
bonus check and told him he’d see a raise on his check that week.
God! We have always prayed that God would allow us to be debt free when He sets
us out into full-time ministry. As a result of this fast, we are encouraged to
believe this will happen! We are so excited and so blessed by what He has done.
Thank you for being obedient to call the fast…I honestly believe that if we
hadn’t been obedient to follow it, God would not have moved like He did!
