In a recent service, Pastor Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church shared an astonishing revelation about fasting. At the age of 80, he embarked on a fast lasting more than 40 days and nights, continuing even at the age of 81. Despite discouragement from others, who cited concerns about his age and health, Pastor Adeboye remained steadfast in his commitment to the spiritual practice. He originally planned a ten-day fast but extended it, citing the spiritual value he found in the experience.
Having faced leg troubles two years prior and even choosing an armchair for preaching and teaching, Pastor Adeboye proudly stood before the congregation, sharing news of his robust health. In his sermon, he stressed that fasting is determined by spiritual goals rather than age, encouraging people to embrace fasting when spiritually required, irrespective of their age.
