During my school’s badminton practice some time ago, a friend’s ear was hurting really badly.

She went to see the doctor to get it checked. The next day, I was shocked to find out that the doctor had told her that her ear was damaged and she might be deaf if it was not healed in the next two months.

After hearing that news, I heard from God that I should pray and fast for her. I obeyed. I told God that I would only stop my fast when she is healed. I had also committed to pray for her two to three times a day.

It wasn’t easy. As my fast got tougher, I started to ask myself why am I doing this and why hasn’t she been healed. But I was reminded that God’s timing is perfect. So I continued to fast and pray.

God reminded me of a verse from Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. God was asking me if I truly believed in that verse and I told God that I did.

When I really believed, I felt strengthened and felt peace in my heart. I continued fasting and believing for her healing.

I want to praise God for helping me through this period of fasting and praying. And through this experience, I learned that any situation you are in or if God challenges you to do something, just trust God all the way and He will pull you through. All glory and praise to God!
