In light of the tragedy in Oregon and Sandy Hook this past week and also for all of the hurt and division in our country right now, I am challenging my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to fast with me for 30 days. Fasting can be going without food or it can be giving up something else. It is to take a moment of time where we do something in our routine and then taking that time to focus on God’s word and listen to His voice as we repent and cry to God for healing. My hope is that we all ask for God to send out His Holy Spirit to begin a renewed move of people towards Him in the Unites States and around the world. God has done this numerous times in history and it has always begun with a small group of people who faithfully prayed and cried out to Him. God listens to His people. His will is for everyone to come to ask for forgiveness and turn towards Him.
Would you be willing to join me for the month of January to either give up one meal per day or give up something for Him? Examples of this to give would be listening to the radio on the way to and from work. Instead listen to His voice and ask Him for guidance on how you can act to bring a revival to our land. Give up watching an hour or two of TV every night, really giving up anything where you can be in silence and prayer listening and crying out to God. It will be interesting to see what happens after 30 days. God is amazing and desires to hear from His people. Only a change of heart in this country toward God instead of moving Him further and further out of our lives will change the direction of this country and this world.
