Day Thirteen


1) Lean body mass: 112 lbs

2) Body fat: 5%

3) Pulse: 54

4) Body Temperature: 97.8. Several days ago my temp was 95.0; that is dangerously low. Well, after reading-up on hypothermia, I took some action. I turned the heat up in my apartment, put on some extra layers of clothing, put on more bed clothing, and that did the trick. My temperature this morning was hovering in the area of 97.3. I would have had to stop my prayer and fasting is it got below 95.0, because that is in a dangerous area.

5) Blood pressure: 118 over 70. My blood pressure has always been low ----120 over 80 is optimal: 160 over 100, is Grade 1 hypertension (mild), etc.

6) Body fluid’s pH display: 5.5, the same as it has been for some time, seems like it is going to remain this way, and without eating healthy food, I can’t do anything about it, but it still is extremely unhealthy. The reason for a very low pH is this: the two main ingredients needed to keep the body fluids alkaline are calcium and vitamin D. Calcium comes from calcium rich foods and supplementation, like coral calcium, and the main source of vitamin D comes from exposure to sunshine; a poor source is from synthetic supplements. It is literally impossible to get enough vitamin D from food sources, since the majority of natural foods are almost void of natural vitamin D. Acidic body fluids is one of the main reasons for much of the sickness and disease in the world today. So I can understand why my body fluids are so low; I haven’t had any calcium or vitamin D for twelve days. I am certain I will survive until the end of my time of prayer and fasting. My pH has always been from 7.0 to 7.5. ------ 7.0 is neutral; any digits below 7.0 is acidic; any digits above 7.0 is alkaline. Most healthy people, especially the young, will usually have readings in the alkaline range, while most older people will have readings in the acidic range--that spells trouble.

7) Weight: 118 lbs I have been losing just one pound per day. That is great.

8) Mental and emotional conditions: the same as it has been for the last few days, which means: my memory is at times a little foggy. My mental capacity is slipping a little. I have a difficult time working on the computer. My thinking has also slowed down. Most likely, the reason is that the brain uses more cholesterol (good fat) than any other organ in the body and my cholesterol has always been low, and therefore I am feeling its effects.

9) Spiritual experiences: I am still extremely optimistic. It seems impossible for God not to answer my prayers. Repeating, the reason for lack of strong faith in the world nowadays is because of our modern, sophisticated lifestyle. Faith in spiritual matters is not needed, since our present-day culture has made it just about obsolete. This world can give us almost everything we need. Will we have enough faith to overcome this enormous barrier? The only way that will be possible is if that power is given to us by God, and I am confident He will give it.

10) Physical condition: I laid down most of the day out of necessity and took an hour nap, and therefore conserve energy. I hate to admit this, but I can’t stand up for a long period of time; my legs get weak and I must sit or lay down. If and when I stand up or even sit up, I get dizzy, but only sometimes. It takes effort to move, which sometimes I don’t have. Then there are times I am energetic. I try to drink as much water as possible, but it is difficult. I know I have to drink as much as possible, but I have come to the point that I hate drinking water. My throat most often is parched and water does not relieve it.

11) Daily activities: Listen to the New Testament a few hours. Work on computer for an hour or so, to respond to emails and comments. Then I have to change these vital signs each day, which is trying for me. I was in bed for 11 hours, sleeping and praying.

How will all the above figures and attitudes continually change my life/our lives in the uncomfortable and extreme conditions of prayer and fasting? Physically, your guess is as good as mine, but spiritually I am extremely optimistic. In the next few weeks, hopefully, we will find out.

What type of healing are you trying to induce what type of miracle are you praying for?

Anonymous, thanks for your common sense question. First, I have to say, any healing from God is a miracle. Therefore, they are one in the same. Even though, there are healing and miracles that are not from God. One can easily tell the difference by what the healers believes about Jesus Christ and the type of lives they live.

As for me, the type of miracles Jesus Christ and His apostles performed, are the ones that are needed on a large scale. That in itself would confirm their validity. That is my Holy Grail. For obvious reason, my priority would be little children and babies first. I don’t know if you can understand, but my compassion for those who are not normal for no fault of their own is unreal. That empathy is a very painful gift which, for whatever reason, was given to me by God.

(Joh 9:4) I must work the works of Him who sent Me, while it is day. Night comes when no man can work.

I have to guess we are in that period that Jesus refered to as Night.

Keep up the goal to get closer....

Anonymous, thanks for your timely thought. Yes, you are correct. The only thing is that it is much darker then most of us believe. When ungodliness is accepted as good and holy, that is the time when Satan has penetrated the core of world, especially America.

How will you know you are helping babies and children, I don't understand.

Dear anonymous, thanks for your interesting question. The first thing I must say is this: I personally will never be able do anything to help or heal/cure anyone. I will only act as a conduit for Jesus Christ; He does the healing with no show of pomp and pageantry. Now, to answer your question. Any child or adult will be completely healed instantly, with no waiting period. That is the way God does things. And I will take no credit for anything except, repeating, my main contribution is my faith in God that He can, wants to and will heal. This is what my fast is all about; to increase my faith through prayer to the point in which God can use me as that conduit. God bless you for your relevant question. JC
