If you've ever heard me talk, you've heard me speak about how balancing my brain with amino acids ended my struggles with a lifelong eating disorder. However, what you've never heard is how God used that same eating disorder to launch this Prayer & Fasting Retreat.
About 4 years ago, I was well into living a ketogenic lifestyle and some intermittent fasting, however I had never done an extended fast because I was always told if I did 'my eating disorder would come back'. However, God had different plans & began to reveal to me in scripture our call as Christians for fasting & prayer. One day after spending some time reflecting on His Word, I knew in my heart God was telling me to enter into a longer fast, AND that I would be ok, that my eating disorder would not return.
I joined the Fasting for a Purpose group & entered into a 5 day water fast. Yes, it was difficult physically but WOW! was it powerful. With the communal support of the group, through meditation on God's word & the power of prayerfully fasting, I witnessed so many miracles and blessings happen in my own life, and those whom I was praying for.
After experiencing that 5 day fast, I felted called by the Holy Spirit to share the power of prayer & fasting with other believers. In Feb. 2020 I hosted a Prayer & Fasting retreat.
Those who had the opportunity to attend were inspired by the power of God, and saw many blessings in their own life. I still felt God calling me to continue this journey to revitalized the lost gift of fasting and prayer.
