Yale University
Ten-Day Fast

Monday, January 20 - Wednesday, January 29, 2020

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 sought 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 20, 2020, 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! As a participant, you will receive a special devotional by email each morning of the fast offering encouragement as you devote yourself to the Lord in humility through fasting. Our theme for this fast is “Undefiled,” and the ten daily devotions will draw from the example of Daniel, a man of God who refused to conform to the ungodly culture in which he lived.

May God draw near and bring spiritual renewal to us and to our nation as we seek Him through prayer and fasting!

Join the Fast

Don't be afraid to take on this 30-day commitment to draw closer to God, together with thousands of Christians across the nation, through prayer and repentance during this desperate time in our nation's history.

Fasting Resources

Throughout Scripture, we see examples of fasting accompanying and giving urgency to the desperate prayers of faithful men and women. Some participants of "Seeking God in September" may choose to not just pray, but also fast during the month as part of their commitment. American Christians are often unfamiliar with the practice even though fasting was common for Christians through the centuries and is regularly done in the international Church. For more information check out this FAQ for Fasting and this curated list of resources.

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
