"I have been truly AMAZED at the difference in my quality of life! My fears are history, I have joy and peace like never before, and I am able to walk away from SIN and discern what God wants me to do so much easier. This has changed my life; I am so thankful to Him!" -Cheryl

"God provided a job for me. I start Monday, January 20!" - Deidra

"My husband had shoulder replacement and after the first day has had NO PAIN. Praise God."  - Linda

"My wife's estranged daughter is talking to her! Praise God for relationship reconciliation!"        - Todd

"On January 9, I had emergency eye surgery to have a stint placed in my right eye. I had just had my retina repaired on December 13 – it was detached. After my second surgery, I couldn’t see anything. I didn’t need to see to know that God is able. Sunday I came to the Prayer Partners and to Pastor Greg to be anointed with oil, for prayer and to thank God for His healing and restoration of my sight. We were coming before Him in faith believing in what He was about to accomplish in me for His glory. At Wednesday’s check up with the surgeon, not only could I see colors and shapes but I was also to make out some of the largest letters that she was scrolling through on the screen. By Friday, God blessed me with being me with able to see features that I was unable to see a week ago. I was able to identify objects and a small portion of my peripheral vision has returned. I’m not ashamed to say that I when the blessing of sight came at work, I stopped everything to give God all the glory. My students at Perryville know that I am relying on God to restore my vision and when I walked out of my office, I had a testimony to share. God’s not through healing me and I’m not through giving Him the glory!"      - Karen

"My husband has been raising my two older children from a previous marriage since they were 1 and 3 as his own. For the last 11 years we have been in an uphill battle with my ex-husband due to his drug and alcohol abuse and lack of consistency with the children. For two years now we have been preparing for a trial which is set in March for his parenting rights to be severed so that my husband may adopt them. He has been fighting us every inch of the way and we were set for a very large trial to include witnesses, etc. We just received a notice on Friday that he has decided to consent to the severance to allow my husband to adopt them and will no longer be fighting us on this. This is such a miracle that we never expected! My husband has absolutely been their father for most of their lives but it looks like now he will be there legal father finally! Praise God!" - Rebecca

"On January 13th I was scheduled for oral surgery. the surgeon thought he was going to have to do grafting on my sinuses and on my jaw bone. Once he got in and started extracting the teeth no grafting was needed. I've been able to cut back on the pain medication, taking Motrin and Tylenol instead of narcotics. God is faithful. I've always been able to believe 150% for others during prayer but this has significantly increased my faith and trust in the Lord. All glory and honor to to the Lord." - Siri

"God has always been good to me and always provided. I have had 2 moves where I had to start over. I am in process of my 3rd move with a new start. I got engaged in November and my fiancé and I have been long distance so I decided to move to Texas to be closer. I have been praying and applying for jobs since December. Since the fast began, I’ve had 3 job offers which was a really tough decision. Once I decided, they told me they were going to give me an unexpected relocation allowance to help with the move and now I can pay off a loan that I’ve been trying to get rid of. God is so good." - Naomi

"Before the fast I experienced a typical wave of back pain caused by scoliosis considered chronic pain because I've had this pain for 12 years and I never thought it would go away but through the pain and through the fast I started believing with faith for complete healing to never feel the pain again and I can say I have not once since experienced any ounce of pain or discomfort in my back and my quality of life has improved as well. " - Alyssa 

"I received two miracles during the Daniel fast. I was able to quit smoking. That was huuuuge for me and the Lord relieved me from any fibromyalgia pain. I haven’t had any physical flare ups. I have only God to thank for my Miracles."

"Our son has been struggling with addiction for a while. We prayed for a long time that he would get into a rehab program. We prayed that our son would get into teen challenge, and he just entered that program about a week ago in Phoenix!" - Cliff and Linda Conkey

"Our son didn't have much to say about God and didn't go to church or talk to his sons about anything spiritual. We are now raising his sons, and he is in Jail for a short time until April. During the fast the boys asked that someone from the church to go visit him and it is being arranged as their dad was willing to allow the church to come visit!" - Kenan

"After 32 years of Ministry we retired two years ago. I was the Principal at a Private Christian School that was affiliated with the Church where my husband was an Associate Pastor and Business Administrator. Retirement did not happen when we anticipated and planned for it to happen. It happened out of necessity due to my health. Although we did our best to plan for our future one of the benefits we did not receive in Ministry was a Retirement plan. My husband went back to work but I have not been able to. Yesterday we received acknowledgment of a two year prayer request that will enable us to be released from the financial hardship we have experienced since retirement. We are grateful for God’s overwhelming blessings in our lives." - Teresa
