Join a Ten-Day Fast to Start 2019

January 7 – 16, 2019

Join fellow Christians across America in a ten-day fast (fasting from food). Participants will follow the example of men and women of Scripture who humbled themselves and called upon the Lord through fasting. Our country needs the spiritual renewal that only God can bring. May He hear our cry and answer!

Starting Monday, January 7, 2019, participants will seek God through the biblical practice of fasting. You may choose to fast from all foods for the entire ten days—drinking only liquids—or you may choose to fast one or two meals each day. For some, health limitations will require a different type of fast (see fasting resources). However God leads you, we are thrilled to have you be a part.

Please sign up below to participate. By signing up, each morning during the fast, you will receive a special devotional by email to encourage you as we devote ourselves to the Lord together in this special and humble way. You will also hear stories from others who are fasting. May God draw near and bring massive spiritual renewal to us and to our nation as we seek Him through prayer and fasting!

Why Fast?

Fasting was practiced in the Old Testament, New Testament and in church history to entreat God for Him to move in extraordinary ways. We need God in the U.S. now more than ever.

Moses fasted 40 days, Nehemiah fasted 120 days, and large numbers of Jews in Esther's time fasted for 70 days in their time of need.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says that when we humble ourselves and confess our sins, God intervenes in history to heal our land. In Psalm 35:13 King David humbled himself through fasting and many others in the Scriptures have done the same to gain favor from God. Moses fasted 40 days, Nehemiah fasted 120 days, and large numbers of Jews in Esther’s time fasted for 70 days in their time of need. Jesus fasted 40 days, Christians in the book of Acts fasted regularly, and believers for 2000 years have sought God through fasting and prayer. Thousands of American Christians humbling themselves through an extended fast will be very meaningful to God and will help move Him, according to His word, to bring change to the United States.

How to Fast

The fast lasts ten days, beginning Monday, January 7th, 2019 through Wednesday, January 16th. As a signed-up participant, you will receive an email each morning of the fast, featuring a devotional to encourage and motivate you as you fast.

You may choose to fast from foods for the entire ten days—drinking only liquids—or you may choose to fast one or two meals each day. However God leads you, we are thrilled to have you be a part.

God's Next Move in America

America’s Christian heritage is among the greatest of all the nations in the world. God’s Kingdom has thrived here through the 1700s, 1800s, and 1900s, largely due to nationwide moves of God’s Spirit. We need another history-making move of God. By His sovereign grace, God ensures that we play a part in Heaven’s work. He draws near to us when we draw near to Him (James 4:8). We must ask, seek, and knock for an outpouring of His Spirit (Luke 11:5-13).

“Whenever God is about to do something truly great,
He first sets His people praying!” Matthew Henry, 1662-1714
