This post is a reminder, family of God all over America and beyond, PLEASE join us in praying and fasting for America this coming Thursday, May 5th, 2016, in conjunction with National Day of Prayer! Please see previous post, “How to Fast”, for guidance if you are new to fasting.
[From previous posts:]
The people of God need no convincing that something is wrong. We hear of growing violence both within and without our country. Division on every issue seems to widen. Each year our culture further alienates biblical truth, and the strength and spirit of our nation weakens. Godly people are praying, so why the continued downward trend?
Consider an answer right out of the mouth of Messiah. 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). Sometimes prayer alone is not enough.
The Lord has set my heart to call the people of God to spiritual battle on behalf of our nation using His ultimate spiritual weapon. For this reason, I urge you, please join us in prayer and fasting on National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 5, 2016.
Suggested prayer requests during the fast:
- Personal cleansing, surrender to God and filling of the Holy Spirit.
- Spiritual renewal in your home and church family, that the people of God in America will be strengthened and prepared for the future.
- Awakening, for truth to be resurrected in our land, and for the Spirit of the Lord to move powerfully calling every lost person to repentance and faith in Christ.
- Restoration and unification of our leaders in His name, and especially for His will to be done in the coming elections.
“If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” II Chronicles 7:14 KJV
Family of God, it is time to do more. Please consider making fasting a regular part of your life. How much of Heaven and earth could we impact if we all fasted one meal per week? Or one day per month?
Please share this with your family of faith on social media. Let’s make a difference in the most powerful way the Lord gave us: through prayer and fasting!
