Is fasting 1000 consecutive days possible? Not fasting day and night without any food and water, no, that's not possible; but fasting for over a thousand consecutive days from 15 to 17 hours a day is possible. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would be the person to do this. But why fast 1000 days? What was the reason behind it all? I wish the answer to why a person would fast 1000 days was simple, but it's not. The absolute truth is that I never intended to fast 1000 days. It never even entered into my mind. Had it, I know I would have rejected the idea. I never thought it was possible. I didn't even think 100 days was possible until GOD blessed me to do it. It was not until I had fasted around 700 days that I began to believe 1000 days of fasting was possible. That's when I prayed and said to God, "Lord, since you have blessed me to fast 700 days, I have only one request now. Lord, bless me to go 1000 days." The Lord heard my request and granted it. During my fast I kept wondering and saying, "Lord, why? Why won't you give me a release from this fast?" It was not until I had fasted 1000 days that God revealed the reason why He had me fasting all those days. God spoke to my mind and said, "Vernard, I didn't have you fasting for `you', I had you fasting for people who need Me all over the world." So I was not fasting for me, I was fasting for you --people who are broken, people who have been wounded and bruised, and people who need God to move in their behalf.
