Bishop Chris Kwakpovwe says

The Presiding Bishop of the Manna Prayer Mountain Ministries Worldwide, Bishop Chris Kwakpovwe, has advised married couples to seek each other’s consent before engaging in a spiritual fast.

The clergyman and author of 25-year-old daily devotional, Our Daily Manna, gave this admonition amid the ongoing prayer and fasting exercise observed by some Christian faithfuls in January to usher in blessings for the new year.

He averred that it’s unscriptural for married couples to embark on a long or short fasting programme without asking for the other party’s permission.

He said, “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”.

“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,” he added.

He concluded by saying, “May the fasting and prayers of this year bring positive results for everyone and may results that cancel insults be showcased in your lives in Jesus name”.
