In the year 2000 I was in a church that rallied all the members to fast when the pastor went in the hospital. No food, just water. A fast isn’t necessarily no food. It’s giving up something you’ll miss enough to notice the lack of it. I believe those moments of hunger are signals to pray for the cause of your fast. A group fast for a common cause is Biblically powerful. Let me paraphrase from memory: when two or more are gathered in my name there I am in the midst, and if any two people agree that something shall be done on Earth it’ll be done in heaven. Remember the day of Pentacost when the upper room was of one mind and one accord? Christians, you need no further reminders of the power of unity. Did the fast work for my pastor? There’s no way to be certain his recovery was caused by the fast. Certainly he was buoyed by the sentiment and action.
I am certain that doing nothing accomplishes nothing. Let’s fast. You, reading these words, and everyone you reach until the group fasting grows exponentially. As a group reading WordPress Blogs, as internet surfers, as a community, as a country, as a world–for the sake of our world.

0500 Hrs-1700 Hrs Eastern Standard Time. Join me. Please.Caroleena, inviting everyone to join her in a movement for worldwide fast for the future of the world.
Share this post or write your own. I’m spending today reaching out to as many people as possible. We can concentrate and harness intentions–say it like that if people resist the mention of prayer. We can do this. If there’s a fast underway, let me know and I’ll join them.
