Prayer can move mountains. Here is a compilation of true accounts about how prayer and fasting helped some of City Harvest Church members overcome their mountains in life.

My member, Angela Soh, has a brother suffering from terminal cancer. Although the Christians in the family have been trying to get him to believe in Jesus, he was always unwilling and said several times before that unless Jesus appears to him, he will not believe in Him.
Last week, when Angela and her family were in Malaysia, they received news that the brother was in a critical condition. She prayed together with her husband and three kids and in their prayers, they prayed that the brother will see Jesus face to face. Upon reaching back to Singapore, they heard that the brother had slipped into a coma. In his semi-consciousness, he saw a man clothed in white. When he woke up, he asked who the man was and the family told him it must have been Jesus. Because of that, he agreed to say the sinner’s prayer and he gave his heart to Jesus. Hallelujah! He has since been discharged from the hospital and is now resting at home.

Throughout these 21 days of prayer, my cell group and I have been praying and fasting for my dad’s salvation. And last night, in my home, my dad received salvation and accepted Jesus as His Lord and Savior! Amen!

My dad suffered a stroke and half of his body was paralyzed. He has been on a wheelchair since late April this year. I prayed for my dad every single day for 21 days of prayer. Initially, nothing much happened. But God did a miracle during Dr Che Ahn’s service.
I was taking care of my dad at home and watching the service online. As I watched, I prayed and laid hands on my father’s shirt as he was upstairs and could not watch the service. As I was praying, my dad suddenly got up and started walking downstairs! I want to thank God for healing my dad!
FINANCIAL & JOB BLESSINGS
Ivan Neo (AS, W269)
I am a freelance interior designer. I have been going many months without any work projects. I fasted and prayed for a week, and a deal worth S$20,000 came in! Now I am still praying and believing God for another S$40,000 from a job.
Winnie Low (MSK, N308)
I have been praying for God to open doors for me in the area of my job. For the past four months, my company has been retrenching staff. Just this week, I received a job offer to manage an admin team! Praise the Lord!
Sharon (JE, E154)
After praying throughout this 21-Day Prayer, I received a 120 per cent pay increment with a job switch.
Angeline Koh (AN, E469)
A member of my cell group, Ammiel was a smoker. He made a commitment to God to go on vegetable fast and quit smoking during the 21 days of fast and prayer. Since 1 June, he has been able to keep his commitment to fast and has not smoked at all. He is also reaching out to his friends, and has successfully integrated two new friends into our cell group. He really has experienced a breakthrough in his personal life.
Aldrich Tjahjadi (YK, W375)
During the 21 Days of Prayer, I went on a 21-day beverage fast and put aside one hour to seek God every day. During this time, God used me in my song leading at an Encounter session during our youth camp, Camp Alive! During the session, God moved strongly and many members were touched and heard from God. People also wept in the presence of God throughout the session.
God also used my sister and I to bring about healing into my mum’s life in the area of her emotions. The breakthroughs and experiences that God has given to me during this time are life-changing. I have decided that I will go on a 21-day period prayer and fasting once a year.
