I just want to know if its wrong to be happy during a fast? I feel like I am too happy, I read my fellow fasting brothers and sisters’ comments and they talk about how much they’re struggling about the fast and some even consider giving up? I know its hard, especially now towards the end but please tell me, I am on the Daniel fast of fruit, veg and water, but I am so filled with God’s peace sometimes I wonder if I may be doing something wrong? To all those that feel like giving up, please dont, you are so close to the finishing line, wait on God and be strong.
Thank You Lord for complete victory this year!!
I have completed my 21 day fast and will continue on to the end of Jan. Praise God for sustaining me!
What a G-reat start to the day. Thank you for sharing God’s annointed word with us.
I claim complete victory over my family,especially for those that are in a strong hold.
Satan you are a lier, you can’t have my family.
Thank you, Pastor, for this “on time” message of COMPLETE victory over the enemy! Such confirmation to me as I fast for this in areas of my life. God bless you and thank you!
Yes, I pray for complete victory over my emotions and all areas in my life that God see that does not go according to his word. I thank You for taking complete control over my home, my life, my children’s life and family. In Your Holy Name I Pray, Amen
I have fast in the past but this one feels more peaceful. I was not prepared for breakfast this morning and was feeling a little light headed. Went to the pantry stood there for a moment looking for something to eat. The only thing that glazed my eyes was the box of Honey Nut Cheerios. However, I left for work on an empty stomach thinking I would stop by the grocery store to get some fruit. Had a meeting to attend so that idea went out the window. Needless to say, God is worth the sacrifice and dying to my flesh. I am praying for things to change in my life. I have been an emotional mess for a long time but look forward to a “complete victory” as Pastor Franklin quoted in today’s message.
i’ve literally cried several times.. so lonesome for food… but i persevere on… for the greater good.. MOre Christ-Like and I must Decrease so the spirit in me will Increase.. and for long term self control.. but it has been very very difficult and even lonesome… i see so many complaints of people eating around me… tossing food in garbage, grabbing another.. . it’s one of the hardest things i’ve done.. this is my second time of 21 days…. i do feel smarter, more creative and bettter memory and more patience.
Thank you God for complete victory in my family,financies,job and promotion.Complete victory over devil, world,bad habits and flesh.We are free as God’s will.This fast is where God gives us complete victory because JESUS came to destroy the works of the devil.
Thank you God to let me strick several times my arrows of my delivrance to see my victory in every areas of my life.Thank you Lord for you know how to give us complete victory.We are trusting you Father God and Bless your Vessel Pastor Franklin for this message in Jesus Name.AMEN AMEN.

Doreen, I think you are exactly where GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO BE. I just think that it is most often when we are distressed that we reach out for prayer (or vent For better or worse, I think when we join together we tend to focus on needs/problems as opposed to blessings.
I am SO HAPPY that you are doing well. You are not alone. I have had some personal attacks during this fast, but now that I’ve moved from a less-than-Daniel fast (gave up sodas, fast food eateries….which are my hangups …and moved toward a full fast of water/juice the past 3 days I do feel much better, happier….getting more done around the house than usual. God sees your disciplined spirit, and rewards you.
Who knows…maybe he’s calling you to go further than 21 days. And if changing your diet, and spending more time with God has brought you such great peace….maybe he’s calling for even a life change—clearly better than an medicine in a bottle. God bless you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank You Lord Jesus for giving me complete victory in 2013 over every area in my life that hinders and troubles me in Jesus Mighty Name I pray, Amen and amen!!!!!!!
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ…1corin 15;57
