17Then one of the crowd answered and said, “Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a mute spirit. 18And wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. So I spoke to Your disciples, that they should cast it out, but they could not.”
25When Jesus saw that the crowd of onlookers was growing, he rebuked the evilf spirit. “Listen, you spirit that makes this boy unable to hear and speak,” he said. “I command you to come out of this child and never enter him again!”
26Then the spirit screamed and threw the boy into another violent convulsion and left him. The boy appeared to be dead. A murmur ran through the crowd as people said, “He’s dead.” 27But Jesus took him by the hand and helped him to his feet, and he stood up.
28Afterward, when Jesus was alone in the house with his disciples, they asked him, “Why couldn’t we cast out that evil spirit?”
29Jesus replied, “This kind can be cast out only by prayer.”
Fasting and Prayer: The Power to Cast Out Powerful Demons
Fasting and Prayer has been possibly my biggest weapon against the what was diagnosed as Schizophrenia but I diagnose as a Witchcraft attack. The medicine did not work but Fasting and Prayer did. Fasting and Prayer brings in the Light, Wisdom, Knowledge, Power, and Clarity that I did not have.
One of the best ways to get Gods attention and to get God to get involved in the affairs of Man on the Earth is to Fast and Pray. Think about it, how did mankind get God to back off from the affairs of mankind. Adam and Eve ate the wrong food.
God chose food as the gateway to all that was Good and Evil. You can eat from all the trees of the Garden but DO NOT EAT from the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil God said.
Eve was tempted by Satan to eat from that very tree. From the lust of her heart and thirst for power over her husband the Bible says she ate. So do not miss this very important point. Food is a power weapon in spiritual warfare.
So much so that when tempted by Satan in the wilderness JESUS said to him, ” Man shall not live by bread alone but from Every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God ”
If you want to get God ‘s attention then you want to do the opposite of what Adam and Eve did and do exactly what JESUS did. Physically demonstrate that God is more important to you than food. Put people before yourself. Those who hunger and thirst after righteousness shall be filled!!!

Why Does the Church Not Emphasis Fasting More?
What I have found is that the church does not emphasis the power of fasting and need for fasting enough. Yes many churches have a yearly fast this is true. But when people run into major problems in their lives they are rarely asked to fast and pray through it.
I have been to many types of churches over the last 13 years through many very serious tribulations and I was never advised to Fast and Pray because I was in some deep spiritual warfare.
I had to learn that on my own. Well let me correct that. The HOLY SPIRIT led me to this powerful truth. So now I am sharing this with you. If you want to fight Satan and kick him up and down the street. Then you are going to have to Fast and Pray for supremacy of the Air ways.
LORD of Heavens Armies: God Will Send His Angels To Fight Your Battles
So what is going on when there are things that we cannot explain or need deliverance from here on Earth. Many times it is a spiritual basis that we need God to fix for us. Because, some Rats got in the system. We need a trained expert to come in and get rid of the Rats.
In this case these rats are Demonic. They have come to Kill, Steal, and Destroy. JESUS has come that we might have Life and Life More Abundantly. JESUS is the LORD OF Heavens Army!!!
Do you want the same JESUS that walked the Earth healing all manner of sickness and diseases to go to Battle for you? Do you want the same JESUS who he and his disciples cast out demons by the Legion to work for you?
By Fasting and Praying JESUS will give you the Authority that you need to step on Satan ‘s head just like he did at the cross. But as we know the Cross was a painful thing. It is going to hurt and we are going to have to give up something.
Crucify Your Flesh Daily: Follow JESUS Lead
Apart of the Crucifixion process is the act of picking up our cross. So who wants to be Crucified? I don ‘t see any hands going up. Tough crowd.
But you see although JESUS did not even want to go to the cross. He did it because he knew that is Father wanted him to go and needed a Sacrifice for the sins of men. We as followers of Christ are not above our Master. If JESUS has to Fast, Pray, and be offered up for Sacrifice.
We should also Fast, Pray, and offer ourselves up for Sacrifice. This is the Intercessory part of why we should Fast. Along with killing the demons that are attacking you and your life you will also have he opportunity to point your prayers towards others.
To help them fight the demons that are attacking them. You can pray for the World, your nation, Family, Friends and even your Enemies.
I fast and pray for my enemies. Actually when I fast and pray for those who are sending Witchcraft attacks at me I received much victory and relief from those attacks.
Much like Job when he prayed for his friends who basically slandered him when he was so down saying that he must of did something wrong to God. God showed that what they did was they misrepresented who God was to Job during his trials instead of supporting him and comforting him in his time of need.
By saying, God is with you Job. We will pray for you. They accused him of doing evil and God cursing him for it.
This is the same thing but 1 Million times worst that the Accusing and Condemning spirits that my enemies send to me do. So when I pray for them I get better!!!!
So because I love them and do not fear them I pray for them. Although, some of those prayers are God send your Angels to do war with them. I let God decide what that is sometimes.
Others I ask him to attack their finances or even their health. Give them the same medicine that they are giving me. So that they see what they are doing is wrong and has consequences before they die and go to hell or are Left Behind in the Tribulation.
