The people of God need no convincing that something is wrong in America. We hear of growing violence from both within and without our country in the news. Division on many important issues seems to widen. Each year our culture further alienates biblical truth and the strength and spirit of our nation are weakening. Godly people are praying, have been praying, for a long time. So, why the continued downward trend?
Consider an answer right out of the mouth of Christ. When the disciples came to Him asking why they could not cast out a particular demonic spirit, Jesus replied, “This kind only comes out by prayer and fasting” (Mark 9:29). I believe we are at the place in America where prayer alone is not enough.
It is time for us to do more. The Lord has impressed on my heart to call the people of God to spiritual battle on behalf of our country using the ultimate spiritual weapon He revealed to us: fasting. For this reason, I urge you, please join me in prayer and Fasting For America on National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 5, 2016.
Watch in days ahead for additional information about Fasting For America on May 5th, and for tips on fasting. It is an old discipline and the most powerful spiritual weapon in a Christian’s life.
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (earthly) but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. II Corinthians 10:4 NKJV
People of God, I urge you to consider fasting regularly, for the needs in your home and for our country. How much of Heaven and earth could we impact if we all fasted one meal per week? Or one day per month?
Thank you for visiting Fasting For America. Please follow us and share the fasting event on May 5th with your family of faith. God bless you!
