"What’s that weight that’s not letting you run as effectively as you should in fulfilling God’s plan for your life? Get rid of it. Jesus said, “…for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me” (John 14:30). Be sure that Satan has nothing in you"
If Jesus Christ is your Lord, the Master and Shepherd of your life, then you have nothing to fear. David understood this and exclaimed in Psalm 27:1, “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear"

QUESTION AND ANSWER ON FASTING Question – Neo Daniel Diphaha (South Africa): Hi, Pastor Chris, I would like to know the rules of fasting. When am I suppose to fast and how do I determine the duration of my fast? How does fasting help me in my prayers? Answer: Well, uh [laughs], the rules of fasting…there are no specific rules of fasting as it were, because there are different kinds of fasting like the Bible shows us. There are different types of fasting. And, you can be led by the Spirit to fast, and when he tells you to fast, then you have to fast; and, he will tell you how long you should fast. But, apart from that, fasting in itself helps us to get our spirits attuned to God. Fasting helps us position ourselves spiritually to hear God – to listen to Him. See, fasting doesn’t get God to listen to us; it gets us to listen to God [see?]. It’s a spiritual exercise also; it’s another…it’s a form of self-denial, where you’re able to subdue your flesh, subdue your appetites, and then you can listen to voice of the Spirit of God within you. So, that’s why fasting is important. You said “how does it help you in prayer?” That’s the way it helps you in prayer. It helps your focus; it strengthens your resolve, when you pray and fast. So, that’s why it’s important that we fast. And, then, you said, “when am I supposed to fast and how do I determine the duration?” I just told you. The Spirit of God can lead you…He can lead you as to how to fast. Apart from that, you may belong in a group, like in a church, when we all say we’re all going to fast at a certain period, you’ve got to join; that means the Spirit of God is guiding all of us at that time to fast, and you also fast. So, you can fast as a spiritual exercise of as self-denial. You can fast as an act of faith on your part, and say you’re determining at this time [that] you just want to stay off food and pray. So, this really has to do with you; and, then the duration also depends on you; the witness will be within your spirit. [If] this is a personal fast, the witness will be within your spirit. Apart from that, when we have a corporate fast in a group, in a cell, in a fellowship, or in a church, we fast according to the duration that has been stipulated by the leaders, because that’s also one of the ways that the Holy Spirit leads us. #21DaysPrayerandFasting #CEPHZONE3
PRAYING AND FASTING THE RIGHT WAY- MAKING IT EFFECTIVE It is important to note that Fasting is not an effort to change God. When we fast, we are the ones that change and we are the beneficiaries of the Fast. Our Fasting does not change God for the scriptures say in Malachi 3:6 “….I am the Lord, I change not…” So with this in focus, here are steps that can make our Fasting more effective; #1. HAVE A CLEAR OBJECTIVE IN FOCUS - What are your expectations from this fast? #2. THE PERIOD OF PRAYING AND FASTING MUST INCLUDE REGULAR INTERVALS OF PRAYER, STUDY AND MEDITATION ON THE WORD Having a clear focus and expectation will help guide your prayer, study and meditation time. Kindly participate in our daily prayer times by 5:00am -5:30am, 12 noon, 4:45pm -5:00pm and 9:30pm -10:00pm. #3. MINIMIZE UNNECESSARY ACTIVITY OR DISTRACTIONS DURING THE FASTING PERIOD. Strive to be ‘alone’ with the Spirit as much as possible. It is quite common for people to Fast when they are in dire need or in trouble, but you don’t need to be in trouble or in a messy situation to be compelled to Fast. We can Fast to improve our spiritual acumen, stay ahead of situations, make general improvements in our life and to prepare for a greater future. The advantages of Fasting are numerous, and every Christian should benefit from it. What Fasting can do for you, may not be obtainable in any other way. And like many things in our Christian walk, the benefits come to you by doing. You may learn, read or even talk about Fasting – but that won’t bring the benefits. The benefits are realized when you do it. God bless you. #21DaysPrayerandFasting #CEPHZONE3
