"So, join us in this 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting to Reverse the Curse Over America. We will begin 8/8 and proceed through 8/28. I pray this nation will be a light and a hope for the other nations of the earth as we believe for miracles and for God's perfect Will to be done in place of the will of men."

The place America is in today has not caught God off guard. I prophesied three years ago that food shortages were coming. I prophesied persecution was coming. I prophesied a lot of things I didn't want to prophesy. I prophesied inflation and stagnation were coming. However, at the same time, I prophesied that if the Church would wake up in the midst of this and fast and pray and believe God's Word, we could see a turnaround. I prophesied there would be a great harvest of souls in this same season. And harvest is beginning in many places!
I believe it is time to engage in fasting and prayer. We need faith to rise in us to work the works of Him who sent us while it is yet day, as John 9:4 tells us.
Here's why I believe this is the time. We have recently entered the month of Av on the Hebrew calendar. Robert Heidler of Glory of Zion is a strong teacher on the substance of these Hebrew seasons. He serves alongside Chuck Pierce who is a prophet and one of our dearest friends. Robert says that Av is "the month you metamorphose or disintegrate. This is the month God destroys so He can reconstruct. It was meant to be the time the Israelites entered the Promised Land with Moses, but instead, on the 9th of Av, they received the negative report of the 10 spies and refused to move forward." That day has held many moments of destruction for Israel ever since. But it was never meant to be that way. It was meant to be the time they listened to the report of the 2 spies telling them of the incredible fruitfulness of the land. It was meant to be the time to enter into great blessing. As Caleb said to the Israelites then, I say to you now, "Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it."(Numbers 13:30; NKJV)
This is the month where our will or God's will is going to be determined. I feel if we enter into a season of fasting and intercession, believing God for His promises, instead of listening to the media, politicians, social media, even other Believers with reports of doom and gloom, we can turn things around in America. We must see the giants in the land, but know that we can overcome them in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. We were created for this!
So, join us in this 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting to Reverse the Curse Over America. We will begin 8/8 and proceed through 8/28. I pray this nation will be a light and a hope for the other nations of the earth as we believe for miracles and for God's perfect Will to be done in place of the will of men.
Day 1 - August 8 - DAY OF PREPARATION
"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."
(Romans 12:1-2; ESV)
This is the first day of our 21-day season of fasting and prayer. The Bible speaks often of the need to consecrate ourselves before great battles. In Joshua 3:5, just before the Israelites moved to take Jericho, Joshua told them, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you." Do you hear the faith in his statement? We agree today that we will indeed see God do miracles among us as we fast and pray through this season. (Image: Unsplash-Diana Simumpande)
When Nehemiah heard of the condition of Jerusalem, the heart of His nation, his response was to weep, fast, and mourn. Then, he began to intercede between what was and what should be. This is the exact posture we are to take over these 21 days.
So, how do we consecrate or prepare ourselves? Please seek the Lord for specifics for you, but here are some things I recommend:
• Sit before the Lord and ask Him if there is any area of sin or idolatry in your life or home and remove it.
• Worship Him.
• Read Joshua 1 through 6 to see how God helped the Hebrews take their land. Nehemiah is another good book to read to remind ourselves of the way the enemy wars against us and how we are to respond. Read the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) to reacquaint yourself with Jesus - His teachings and His ways. Finally, read the book of Acts to encourage yourself that God has a powerful answer in Jesus! He has not changed and He is still working through His people!
• Take communion.
• Begin your fast. Only fast as He instructs you. If you have medical issues, be sure to consult a doctor before engaging in the fasting of food and liquids. A good fast is a Daniel fast where you eat fruits and veggies only. Some will be able to fast on liquids only, but be careful on water alone. Many choose to fast certain meals and that's fine, too.
• Do not forgo the news, as it may give you information to pray, but ... you may want to fast certain forms of social media, so you can better hear what the Lord is saying.
