I thank God for your caring heartly ministery Pastor Stanley, we love you♥ n appreciate you so much♥in Yeshua Messiah Amen♥Shalom
Now I understand what to do and how to go about fasting because I never understood before but now that Stanley who is an awesome teacher of the Lord's word I must ask the Lord to lay something on my heart 4 that I desire before I start fasting which makes so much sense
As much as I respect Dr. Stanley,
I believe true "spiritual" fasting is only abstaining from food &/or drink.
The only other thing was sex
between a married couple, for a period of time.
I don't believe it has anything to do with abstaining from work or relationships, etc as he states.
Amen. Great message Dr Stanley.
Hello thank you for doing this video, I have practiced fasting before.
It is 2019 l am watching so anointing
l believe in fasting so we could keep the flesh under subjection
I remember the first week long fast I had, towards the end I had a dream I seen as cross in the sky, and the white clouds where passing by it fast. That told me I was on to something. I didn't even do it a hundred percent correct, at that time. I was just eating bread and water at the even, the new day according to the Bible. He still rewarded me with an experience, just because of true effort, and a willing heart. Keep trying till we get it right, cause it's challenging at first. Read Chronicles 30:1 – 30:27. It shows how God is less of a stickler than we think, when our heart is doing spiritual things. He made that Passover special, on par with the best ones from the heydays of King Solomon's. With a willing spirit he even pardons our inconsistencies, 2 Chronicles 30:18– 20. So fast and pray, even if you don't get it right, keep at it till you can. When it starts to get boring rededicate, remember the true intentions, and refocus.
Thank you Jesus for what you did on Calvary ✝️
Fasting and Prayer Really Works
I started Fasting as a Teen
God does not give up on Us
It may look and get bad and dark, yet
God is always there
Stick with Biblical Fasting and Prayer
It really does work
AMEN Pastor Stanley!
Thank you Pastor.
I am very grateful to God for your life for always blessing me with the word of God.
God bless you Pastor Stanley…
Fasting is not commanded. However, it is expected. That is the reason he said "when" as it is expected. He said when you pray, when you fast, when you give. All three are not commanded, however, they are expected.
Yes I fast quit a bit and have lost around 65 pounds…..I'll keep praying harder…thank you Dr. Stanley
Amen. From 2011 but so many recent comments.
Fasting does help . But for me God said instead of fasting, telling me to bring homeless person home to live and give him food to eat . I have medical condition I cannot fasting like others people even though I wanted too . But Remember everything do to GOD is about the pure motive . We cannot force GOD .
How to fast 🙁
im on day 7 of a long fast. i pray alot and yes its worth it.
I feel that it IS expected for the believer to fast. If it was optional scripture would have said “If you fast” and not “Whenever you fast…”.
Fasting is good
God bless this man for the word of God he is spreading to all Christians all over the world.
I feel sad because I need to Fast so God can take my thoughts captive obedient to him .
I have been a Christian for about 20 years and I’ve never really committed myself to fasting, I want more of Jesus,it’s been 5 years that I have sickness over sickness and fears, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, I realize that I haven’t really rely on God, yes I prayed, yes I have felt the presence of God, yes I believe in him but that is not enough, I will start to do it now. Thank you!
I am turning my plate down today. I am setting aside this time to read my Bible, journal and to be active in my walk with the Lord. I want to know Him more today. I need you every hour Lord or how I need you. Amen
Thank You Amen***
Owww amazing teaching God bless u Dr i really appreciate that!!
God I need you..
While doing the Daniel Fast on this very day I want to thank you for sharing your wisdom of what scripture states on our humanity of being human in our thoughts and soul in cleansing to be with one in relationship with our God. Amazing!!
Fasting is great for spiritual.
Would a smoking fast count as fasting? Say for one week?
(also will help me to give up)
