”I fasted for 40 days and 40 nights at age 80” – Pastor E.A Adeboye reveals
Pastor Adeboye, the esteemed leader of Redeemed Christian Church of God, delivered a surprising revelation in a recent service. At age 81, he shared the astonishing feat of fasting for over 40 days and nights when he had just turned 80 years old.
He revealed during his sermon to his congregants that so many people had discouraged him about it. They had told him that he was way too old to still be fasting, possibly fearing that he might develop a health complication. They had even told him that God would completely understand his decision not to fast if he did.
However, Pastor Adeboye had remained resolute, driven by a deep conviction about the spiritual significance of his fast. Initially intending to just fast for 10 days and see how it goes, he surpassed his initial plan.
During this period, he revealed that he encountered leg pain, leading him to adopt an armchair for teaching and preaching two years ago. However, in his recent sermon, he joyfully revealed his restored health, standing tall before the congregation.
In his message, Pastor Adeboye stressed that fasting is not constrained by age but rather dictated by spiritual purpose. He encouraged believers to embrace fasting when spiritually compelled, regardless of their age.
