A lady whom I don't remember before or since came in and was begging for help. She started crawling around on the floor like a snake, and I began to plead the blood of Jesus. After a while of prayer, she was delivered by the power of Jesus Christ! When God leads you to fast, you may face something for which deliverance can only come thru fasting and prayer!
