What happens in the unseen world when you fast and pray?

December 28, 2018

What happens in the unseen world when you fast and pray?

There are times along your spiritual journey with the Lord that Heaven appears silent. You earnestly petition your Heavenly Father for change and yet the answer seems elusive and even ignored. While you strive to keep your faith muscle flexed and involved, you wonder if God is playing games with your heart and ultimate need. You are not alone if you have ever wondered about such times. The Bible gives an account of a weary father whose son had been tormented from childhood. He longed to see his son set free. He inquired of the disciples for help with his troubled son. Nevertheless, the answer was delayed by the disciple’s unbelief. This account is found in Mark 9:25-29 (NKJV),

When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it: “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!” Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said, “He is dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. And when He had come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?” So He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.”

There is no doubt that the Bible speaks of a spiritual realm that takes prayer AND fasting to conquer. Daniel knew it. Paul knew it. Jesus knew it. You MUST know it too. You have things in your life that WILL not come off with just a colossal prayer. YOU must fight through Fasting in addition to your prayers. This combination provides the grit necessary to break the back of the demonic forces in your world. Your physical action through fasting moves God’s hand in your favor.

Do you need a healing? Fast. Do you need deliverance? Fast. Do you need a breakthrough? Fast. Do you need a healthy marriage? Fast. Do you need a wayward child to come home? Fast. Do you need a financial lift? Fast. Do you want peace? Fast. Do you want joy? Fast. Do you want to find your purpose in life? Fast. Fasting breaks the yoke off your life as recorded in Isaiah 58: 6 (NIV), “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loosen the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break EVERY yoke.”

God has set before you a challenge for a better life, a holy life, a God-ordained life. You can stay in a spirit of complacency or you can STAND up and put the Devil back in his place. Live victoriously. Dream courageously. Love passionately. Engage tenaciously. Fasting is your ticket to the POWERFUL life you’ve been seeking. Join the Fasting Movement!

I’m wanting to get my spiritual life back with the Lord as it used to be, even farther than before. I haven’t been in the Word as I should be or praying like I used to. I miss my relationship with Father God, Lord Jesus, and Holy Spirit. I get upset with people to easily, my finances are not good-to much in dept, my children and grandchildren aren’t doing well spiritually either, and my husband needs help also. I need a healing touch as so does my husband and children and grandchildren. I started the fast on Monday, believing in complete restoration for all in Jesus Holy Name, Amen 🙏

I am excited for the way that God is going to move in my life through this fasting period and beyond. I am desperately seeking God to move in my son's life. He is far away from God and is not in a good place. He is 20-years old and our relationship needs to be restored. I am believing for a break through and a release that the devil has on his young life. To God be the glory for all that He is going!!! Thank you Pastor Franklin for being my on-line pastor! I love your preaching!!

Hi i did the fast with your church the last 2yrs. I started the fast today. I need to see God move in my life and in my kids life also. For years now i have been under attack of the enemy in every area of my life. Im not the one to give up i stay in my word daily as much as i can but the attacks have been so strong in the area of my health also my kids health and my finances. I have gotten myself in so much debt that it hard tp see through the struggles. I know my God shall supply all of my needs. It seems as when i get a way to the surface i go under again. But today is the day i ask God to step in and take full control of my life and give me clarity and directions to go to see myself on the otherside where he have the blessings waiting on me to live life to the fullest. So my children can be blessed also. Thank you father for strength to do this fast and to see you work in my life. Amen.🙏🙌

Hungry for G-d. Where could I connect with the 2019 corporate 21-day fasting. I'm out of state.

account_circle Ladee Sonnier

I have been dealing with so much injustice in my life the past two years. I feel as if God is turning a deaf hear to my prayers and requests. I am determined to LIVE and not allow whatever is going on to hinder my growth. I see now promotion and no change in my finances and I am a single mother. God is making away I have to trust and believe that he is. I will start my prayer/fast soon.

account_circle Nicole Ramirez

account_circle C Wilson

Praise the Lord! This message was God sent! Thanks Pastor Franklin for such a profound message it really blessed my heart and was a teaching moment for me.Yes I do need most of the above and is fasting for them. I know with God there are no impossibilities, and so I am asking Him to guide sustain and keep me to the very end. Of course this journey does not come without trials and temptations, but as long as we trust Him, have faith - even as much as a mustard seed wonderful results can be had. Let's just call up on Him to see us through!

account_circle Rhonica Hinds

I truly believe this and during and at the end of this fast I an expect to see God''s hand move. Just like Daniel all those answers to prayer that were held up will come to me

account_circle Suzanne Khadambi

Kindly pray for me. I am participating in the fast but it just dawned on me that my faith in God's ability to perform miracles and to fulfill his promises to me is a but shaky. My prayer also needs a boast of energy. Thank you.
