10-Day Fast: “Heroes of Fasting”

Seek God to change the course of our nation by joining fellow Christians across America for a 10-day fast, at whatever level God calls you to participate, to start 2018. We will imitate the faith and action of men and women in the Bible who fasted and witnessed God's miracle-working power.

    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. Thousands of Americans humbling themselves through an extended fast will be very meaningful to God and will help move Him to bring change to the U.S.

    How to Fast

    The fast lasts for 10 days, beginning Monday, January 8th, 2018 through Wednesday, January 17th. By signing up to participate, you will receive an email each morning of the fast, featuring a short original video on the theme “Heroes of Fasting” to encourage and motivate you throughout the fast.

    You may choose to fast from foods for the entire 10 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
