Is the Daniel Fast a Cure for Cancer?

I just watched an inspirational video about a woman who was diagnosed by four doctors with terminal cancer. They all told her she had less than a year to live.

Through prayer, the Lord led her to the Daniel Fast. This is an inspiring story and again shows the wisdom of God and how prayer and fasting can have powerful effects on our body, soul and spirit. Notice the discipline and devotion Jeannie activated . . . consistency and faith are powerful partners.

    Hi Staycee,
    This is a time for you to draw yourself away from the chatter of the worlds activity and close to the Lord, so that you Can hear all the Holy Spirit is saying to you, and all He is leading you into. Remember, “Prayer and fasting serve as a discipline for followers of Christ to focus more intensely on Him and His Word. It is because of the blood of Jesus that we are made free from all kinds of bondages…..So it’s not really the fasting, but rather because of Christ we are set free”. As you press in to Him, He is Faithful, He will lead you and guide you on the very best path for you and your son, Because of His great love for you. Prov. 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths”. And, since you are seeing changes in your son, I would encourage you that you are going in the right direction and to keep on going until you receive new direction from the Holy Spirit. Be Blessed on your Journey!

  3. I am fasting now for my son who was “diagnosed” with autism. My son is not able to fast for himself, so now seeing this story, I am wondering if I need to do this longer? This woman remained in fasting until she was healed, do I need to do this for my son? I am on day 15 now and have seen changes in him. I also remain in prayer and counsel with God. I know He knows my heart and I would do anything for my son’s healing should I continue til I see the healing, or live by faith as the angel said that God heard me on day 1? Thanks with love and blessings, Staycee

  5. Hi Renea,

    Prayer and fasting serve as a discipline for followers of Christ to focus more intensely on Him and His Word. It is because of the blood of Jesus that we are made free from all kinds of bondages. So it’s not really fasting, but rather because of Christ we are set free.

    Many people are set free from mental illness through faith in Jesus Christ and the power of His blood . . . and yes, we can pray for others. But this is where faith and the natural world interact. Your desire to pray and fast for your loved one is likely a prompting from the Holy Spirit for your to stand in the gap for one who is unable to do that for him or herself. I encourage you to serve as God’s ambassador in this circumstance, studying the Word about healing, the power of prayer and how to activate our faith.

    I hope this helps, and please feel free to contact me via email if you think I can offer any more help.

    Be blessed during your fast . . . which seems to be one for YOU and your loved one.

    Can a Daniel fast break the bondage of mental illness such as bipolar disorder and can a friend or spouse fast for a loved one to be healed from mental illness?

    Thanks for your help and understanding.

    Dear Ms. Gregory,

    This was a very inspirational story. I read one just like it in Pastor Dave Williams’ book on fasting where he mentioned the same story had happened to his great grandfather. His great grandfather underwent the same fast and lived 16 more years. This type of fasting and prayer really does have a great effect on body, soul, and spirit.

    Kind Regards,
