This election year, we are calling all prayer warriors and soldiers in Christ’s army, to join us in a forty-day period of fasting and prayer. This will run in conjunction to and parallel with the ChavdaMinistries event and coinciding with other Christians via prayer networks and churches across America. We will be praying that all Christians stand in the gap for America, our economy, our national elections, and spiritual revival during this time. We are encouraging every Christian in America to join in this nation-wide corporate fast from September 28 to Nov. 6, 2012.
During this period of fasting and prayer, we will be declaring the Lordship of Jesus Christ over America. We will be in prayer this country return to its founding principle of ‘In God we trust’. We will ask for God to take leadership of our nation through whoever is elected. We will pray earnestly for America to continue to support Israel and elect leaders who will honor our historical and biblical connection with her. We will pray for continued freedom to worship both in private and in public. We will be praying for our economic recovery, and we will be praying for a great awakening, a revival of monumental proportion in America like those of Azusa Street in the early 1900’s and the Jesus Movement of the late 60’s – early 70’s. We will pray that the Holy Spirit fall on the U.S. like a blanket. That the body of believers will stand as watchman over the U.S. That, like 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, we would humble ourselves, repent, pray and seek the face of God, that He will forgive us for turning away from Him (because we have) and that he will heal this land.
Because this will be a 40-day fast, obviously an all-water fast will not be appropriate for everybody. Therefore, please choose your own type of fast. For more on fasting read HERE
