Annually, my beloved church, Victory Christian Fellowship (I attend in Malate :)) holds Praying and Fasting to start the year with fresh revelation from God, as well as calibrating our hearts to be align with HIS :). This is my fourth year of joining them since it was really a great experience as a christian. This year, we have a five-day P&F, unlike the usual seven days, since three days of P&F will be done mid-year.
To give you a little background on fasting,
-Jesus fasted (Matthew 4:1-2, Luke 4:14)
-it is an act of humility and consecration (Psalm 35:3)
-it helps us become sensitive to the Holy Spirit (Acts 13:2)
-it brings revival (Daniel 9:2-3)
(Thanks to our P&F2013 Manual for this info)
This year I commit to strict modified Daniel Fast, which includes raw vegetables and fruits only (no sweeteners), because thats what God told me 🙂
I dont know whats with my health during P&F that the last two consecutive years I always got sick 😦 so sad that I end up not ending it up (if that makes sense). I mean not able to finish it.
And this year?…. On my second day of P&F, I catch colds.. 😦 Yeah! that’s sad.
So I have to stay close with my buddies and just face the frequent sniffing and sneezing 😦
Thank God for Vicks and Salinase (Nasal Spray) for temporary relief!
In fourth day devotional in the manual, it talks about Freedom in Prisons, it lets us pray for something that jails us, I prayed for healing since it was something that somehow “paralyzed” me.
A while ago, I was asking advise from a friend if I should start eating meals for me to take medications, I really cant stand the headache 😦 Then, I prayed to God, for healing. I realize I have to finish it this time, I wanted to replicate Paul and Silas’ act of faith, of how they believe in God for deliverance. I know my God will deliver me, heal me, I know my God will give me strength to carry on. I know i can make it to DAY 5 🙂
