OK Lord here we go. “Not my will, but yours be done.”
Amen!!! Lord please strengthen me during this time of prayer and fasting! Lord, I know that You know exactly what I stand in need of, and I pray for guidance and direction. In Jesus Name I pray…..
I had come to the relization that I wanted an needed a closer relationship with God. So I joined the fast. This is truly a testomony of my faith..because I chose to obstain from food..and OMG this truly difficult. I just want to say the scriptres help me maintain my focus…because I really been thinking about putting some hot wings on a blender and liquidfying them…but then I realized…it just would not be the same….help me LORD!!!
Tracy, it’s normal! just keep praying and that urge for those hot wings will go away. You can do it, just keep the faith because with God nothing is impossible.
Tracy I will keep you in my prayers, it will get better with each passing day. As Clover said keep filling yourself up on the word of God because its our daily bread.
Lord we just cannot do it on our own, so please give us the strength to do it. Please fill our cups and quench the thirsting of our souls. We will do it, all the cravings for food will diminish as we pray and stay closer in communication with Him. Lets not lean on our own understanding but let Him do His will.
I joined this fast so I can have closer relationship with God and for my family. I live in Germany, I’m so glad I can participe online
Putting God first in my life is a must, I intent to put him first in every aspect of my life.
Being broken down is a struggle, but in the end, it’s all for your glory Father. Thank you that in my weakness, you are strong Lord.
I am fasting..I wanted to do the three day liquid but unable to..only fruits and vegetables and water…for 21 days..I can do it because God will help me accomplish this..I love jesus
Day 2 and I am reading fasting edge and praying and fasting and on my way to work my back goes out on me. So i am at work in excruciating pain and I thank God for endurance to get me through this. I won’t give up. I will move forward in fasting and prayer. GOD is good.
God its all about you and your will for our lives. Help to remember that. Continue to strengthen us each new day. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!
Yes Lord let not my will but thy will be done! I am ready and very excited to join this fasting movement again this year because I know without a doubt that the Best Is Yet To Come for my life. Thank you Father God, strenthern and empower me plz with your Spirit to continue this Fasting with joy and excitement. Bless you Ps J. Franklin!
I am so happy that the video blogs are going to continue this year. It is one thing to read the journal and devotionals, but it is totally different to see Pastor Franklin and hear him speak.
I agree with you, I love seeing the videos.
Well…I decided to fast from smoking and add a little food. Would that make more sense?
I’m with you Pastor and fellow friends and followers of Christ! Going strong and excited to worship God thru fasting and prayer!
Rosemary, back BE HEALED In Jesus Name! My back went out on me about a month ago and that is one thing that I am fasting about. Pray for me as I pray for you
Praise be to our Lord, I just want to encourage all of my brothers and sisters in Christ who are standing together in this fast and to let you know that God answers prayers. If you are standing in the gap for a family member or friend don’t give up, keep praying.
Yes thank you Pastor Jentezen for the video blogs. I’m thankful and very blessed to be part of this amazing church.
I’m preparing my ears and heart for the words of Jesus, to lead me and fill me with the Holy Spirit.
Today is day 7 for me! Thank u Pastor Franklin for your vision. This will be year 4 fasting with you. God bless you & your family
Second day, and like Jentenzen said, is hard to fast green beans, and more green beans, fruit, but I think is good. It’s not easy, but not impossible when we have God in our ❤’s

WHAT THE LORD TELLING YOU TO DO. HAS THE SPIRIT CONVICTED YOU. DO AS THE LORD SAYS. BE BLESS AND THAT I AM PRAYING WITH YOU.
When I comitted to this fast, I had a list of things that I would be fasting for and praying to God about – first and foremost that I hear from Him about my life and what He wants me to do and to have a more intimate relationship with Him. I have been praying about my children;grandchildren;family members; financial difficulties; our country; our children in general who are future Kingdom builders who are being attacked; taking back the schools and for God’s people to reign in various areas. I believe God wants us to pray and fast about these things and that He will answer, but after listening to this short video message, I realize that I had my agenda already set and was asking God to bless it and make it happen. I had a set date and location to start an afterschool program that I have been praying about for about 7 years . But now I realize that I must lay all this down and wait to hear from Him to see what He wants me to do. I MUST put God first. I want to accomplish what He has for me to do.
I HAVE STARTED MY FAST, AM WALKING BY FAITH NOT BY SIGHT
the bible says that the Lord looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God…. and also if you seek Me you will find Me….oh how exciting it is to know that when we made the decision to fast and seek God that He will show up. makes me want to shout halleujahhhhhhhhhhh my God is goooood. brace yourselves here come God
Thank God for all his provisions while striving to accomplish this goal. I am daily growing closer and know that God is doing miraculous wonders in me and through me. All praise and honor to God.
Its so awesome to be encouraged day by day. Thank you Pastor Franklin!
LORD AS I CROSS OVER T THE SIDEOF MORE THAN ENOUGH.I KNOW YOU CAN KEEP ME FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO.
I want more of God. I want more wisdom, discernment, faith and I want to trust Him more. When I am tempted with food, I remember that I want God, more than I want my daily bread.
There is a mystery to the madness of fasting and his name Jesus reading us for more of him in an way that we’ve never ever image. Thx. You. Pastor Franklin.
This website is so wonderful! My 2nd year to fast and this is so encouraging to read others’ comments. It shows I am not alone. I love the daily video devotionals as well. I am praying for my dependency to be on God and not put it on people. Lord, please heal me.
I am so grateful to God for allowing me this time of prayer and fasting. I’m also grateful for Pastor Franklins’s message. During this fast I’m believing God to align my heart with His.
