I was raised in the Pentecostal Religion. When I was in the 3rd. grade, that was around 7 or 8 years old I came home with a D on my report card in English. My parents were very abusive. I was scared to death. But I got the Bible I got on the floor, I was fasting I already knew that much. Any way For the next 6 weeks I fast and prayed alot. When the 6 weeks were up I had a 98 average in English. I did not have to take the test for the end of the quarter. I was BLOWN AWAY. The other kids got so mad. I did not even realize I had done anything to change my grade. That was God let me tell you. That made such an enpack on me for the rest of my life. Even though I backslid when I was 20. Married and alcoholic. I had a bad life, but I always knew God was there. Over the years things happened, but I knew God was there. March of 2007 I came all the way back to God. I watch a lot of Daystar Network TV. On Sunday night at 6:00 EST Dr. Frederick K C Price is on. He can teach Faith better than anyone I have ever heard. When I can back to God I was in bad shape. I had copd and asthma severe. From smoking. I quit 6 years ago. Thank God. Any way I kept listening to Dr Price. He says that when you fast that causes the flesh to weaken and the spirit to grow stronger. And let me tell you that is so true. You fast and pray and you will see results. He has healed my copd and asthma. I have doctor proof. He healed my hearing. I wore a hearing aid most of my life. I'm going to fast and pray till I become a huge spirit filled with God. Also, my son and daughter in law seperated for about 6 months. I said nothing. But, when their daughter, my grandaughter come over so sad, age 7. We prayed, just me and her .Their back together going to church. Praise God it works. I hope this helps someone.
