The Prophet Isaiah describes the desire God has for His people to fast and pray.
In Chapter 58 he writes
""Is this not the fast which I choose,
To loosen the bonds of wickedness,
To undo the bands of the yoke,
And to let the oppressed go free
And break every yoke?
"Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry
And bring the homeless poor into the house; When you see the naked, to cover him;
And not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
We are inspired by this call and are seeking others to join us as we fast and pray.
Without prayer our efforts are in vain. We believe that the end of division begins with prayer.
On the first Sunday of each month we gather with our disciples and missionaries to pray and end our fasting. Each person participates as they feel led. Some fast for 24 hours others for 10 days or somewhere in between. We believe that God answers prayer so we seek Him through prayer with others.
If you would like to fast and pray with us you can do it from wherever you are located. Send us your prayer requests and we will send you ours. Gather your group, teach them to fast, lead them in prayer, and break your fast in a time of shared food and friendship.
Contact us to speak with our Isaiah 58 Prayer and Fasting coordinator. He handles the details of gathering and communicating the prayer requests of all participants.
