Christian Union Day and Night strengthens Christians across America to seek God wholeheartedly with the aim of national revival. Many believers wish that they were stronger in their walks with God so that they would have the vision and ability to step out in faith and make a difference in their world. Christian Union has found that short, focused times of drawing near to God have an incredibly positive impact providing Christian strengthening, renewed vision, and deep Christian friendships. Christian Union Fire is a collective time of small groups in various locations, coming together for worship, prayer, Bible reading and teaching, fasting, and fellowship for the purpose of rejuvenation and inspiration; these retreats last 1.5 or 2.5 days.
The life-changing results from CU Fires are rooted in prayer and fasting. Before each CU Fire, CU associates and volunteers pray and fast for two days. Each CU Fire host and participant is covered by four hours of preparatory prayer. The following prayers will have a wonderful effect on each CU Fire host and participant and the kingdom of God.
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
— Hebrews 11:6
The inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, ‘Let us go at once to entreat the favor of the LORD and to seek the LORD of hosts; I myself am going.’
— Zechariah 8:21
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
