The following forty-day fast is sponsored by Mahesh & Bonnie Chavda of Chavda Ministries International.
Read II Chronicles 7:13-14
It is time to battle for the soul of our nation. Look how the current natural and economic
crisis of America mirrors II Chronicles and Joel. If you are called by the name of Christ, you qualify. You are privileged to join with God to make a difference in the state of “our land”.
God clearly defined in II Chronicles 7:14 what HIS people were to do when they saw certain disasters. This 40 day prayer and fasting guide is meant to individually and corporately direct us to fulfill the 4 “ifs” of II Chronicles 7:14: "if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." The guide is two-fold: (1) calling for individual action and (2) prayer for the church, the nation and the peace of Israel.
Receive instruction from God as to how He would have you wage war on your knees for this nation and its leaders. Fasting is encouraged. However, be sensitive to your personal health issues. You may wish to consult a physician before fasting. If you cannot do a Daniel Fast, Juice Fast, or Meal Fast, you may elect to fast from TV, etc. Determine in your heart what part God would have you commit to in prayer/fasting. Resolve to be faithful for 40 days.
Lord God, we come humbly before you in fasting and prayer, that you give us godly leaders that will seek Your face, walk in Your ways, make just decisions, and bring glory and honor only to Your Name. Lord, we pray to bring this country back to its founding principles of "in God we trust", we repent from our un-Godly ways oh Lord and pray that you hear our cry, that we might be forgiven and that you will heal this great nation. Lord we pray for the church, the bride of Christ, that she will turn and re-acknowledge the roots in Pentecost. We pray for all church leaders of every denomination, that they will look to you and you alone in seeking the truth to lead. Lord we pray for the safety and peace of Israel, as we know that she will always be protected as she is your land. Lord we thank you and we praise you and humbly pray these things in the name of Jesus Christ.
"If my people which are called by my name…"
May the blood of Jesus cover, bless and protect you!
