“Once Your Partner Tells You Not to Fast, Don’t Do it – Bishop Chris Reveals Why


Bishop Chris Kwakpovwe, the founder and Presiding bishop of the Manna Prayer Mountain Ministries Worldwide, headquartered in Lagos has issued a warning to married couples.

He advised married couples to follow the word of God and ensure that they have the consent of their partners before embarking on long or short fasting programmes.

According to him, ‘1st Corinthians 7: 3- 5 says, no one in a marital relationship has the right to jump into fasting without the agreement and consent of their partner. It has to be an agreement for this to happen. In other words, you have to pet your wife or husband and be in agreement’.

He went on to say, ‘You can not do a secret fast. Your partner and spouse needs to know and be in agreement, This is what the bible (as revealed via Apostle Paul) says. Once your partner says NO, please don’t do it. The bible wants you to discuss with and listen to your partner and in certain cases appeal to them in wisdom.
