My 40 Day Fast

leave a comment »


On Friday evening, I started on a fast that would last 40 hours. No it had nothing to do with the resurrection of Jesus. Besides, he was laid in the tomb on Wednesday and rose on Saturday fulfilling the sign of Jonah.

Basically the following is my journal entry making a note of symptoms and reactions to what I was experiencing:

Friday morning: Ate part of Thanksgiving leftover and went for a walk. Walked to the dining hall to see what time they opened again (Sunday at 4:30). I felt a presence in the room basically taunting me that I may have to go a whole day or more without food. This spirit was hoping that I would give into fear.

Friday 5:30 p.m: Ate last meal from Thanksgiving leftovers.

Saturday 2 p.m. : While on a walk on campus heading to watch a women’s basketball game, I started experiencing  disorientation. Objects in my view acted as if they were bouncing up and down. My knees were aching from walking. Slight headache while watching game.

Between 6-10 p.m.: experienced the following-some more disorientation, headaches, sunken tongue, slight memory loss, nerve feelings weren’t as acute, eyelids were getting heavy, muscles were weakening. Went to bed around 11.

3 a.m.: Woke up when I started experiencing some hunger pangs.

8 a.m.: Woke up, shaved and dressed for church. Ate again at 9:30. Quiche and strawberries. By 10, I had a stomach ache, then my body felt flushed and warm. I started feeling sleepy.

4:30 p.m.: Ate my first good sized meal in 47 hours. My body acted as if it wanted to reject food i.e. treating it as as foreign object. I felt like I was going to vomit.

Over the coming days, I will be blogging about experience with spiritual warfare and what I can expect to occur in the near future.
