Encouraging Scripture For America Into Thanksgiving

"In prayer you shall perceive ... the way out of every situation that has no exit." 
Medjugorje March 28, 1985

"Do novenas of fasting and renunciation so that satan be far from you and grace be around you"                                                                                                             -  Medjugorje July 25, 2005


Thank you to all who are joining us in fasting this last day before tomorrow’s Thanksgiving feast.

On top of all its other benefits, fasting makes feasts so much more special.

You are doing so much to rescue America. On the surface many who you share Thanksgiving with may be despondent about America as they look at the headlines. Consider God’s plans and the timely words believers widely focused on recently from Romans 5:

20 Law came in, to increase the trespass; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more…

That is apropos to America today – government increasingly trespassing against everything the Lord says is dear to Him, but as government sin expanded, His grace abounds to an even greater degree.

And if you have the occasion to converse with other believers who don’t yet fast weekly, they probably don’t understand the impact their effort alone can have on history. In that light consider this snippet from the fasting pages on our website referencing 1 Kings 21:

A wicked king named Ahab led Israel into all that was evil. In verse 21, Elijah pronounced God’s judgement on Ahab and said that every male and female in his house will be destroyed. In verse 25 scripture describes Ahab going so far as to say, "But there was no one like Ahab who sold himself to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord, because Jezebel his wife stirred him up."  However, in verse 27 we see Elijah’s words resonated with evil Ahab and Ahab feared the Lord. Ahab tore his clothes and began fasting ... and heaven noticed. In verse 29 God Himself comments to Heaven about Ahab:

See how Ahab humbled himself [i.e., fasted] before me? Because he humbleth himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days…

Even an otherwise evil king was spared disaster through the power of fasting!

To the best of our knowledge (Please correct us if you can think of another passage that we are forgetting), this is the only time in scripture where the Lord addresses the heavenly court and calls to the angels’ attention that the behavior of a sinner has been so pleasing to Him, that the Lord reverses His condemnation and chooses to spare this horrific sinner from devastation.

It was fasting that brought about such mercy for these hard-core sinners. What a statement about the power of fasting by even one soul to change history.

Lastly, notice the words of God Himself:

Ahab humbled himself…

Because he humbleth himself…

This is consistent with David’s words in the psalms that to humble oneself means first to fast.  Keep that in mind when you discuss one of the most quoted bible verses as it relates to America, 2 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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Consistent with Yahweh’s words to Ahab and David’s words, humbling oneself was akin to fasting and should be considered fundamental to repairing our great nation.

Thank you for fasting with us today – You will be glad you made the effort for all of eternity.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Why We Fast – Our Core Fasting Intentions

1) For the Holy Spirit to reign down upon America renewing our land as the Christian, capitalist meritocracy we were founded to be.

2) For the protection of our police, firefighters, military and their families from harm and that the Lord bless their courageous generosity on our behalf one hundredfold.

3) For the protection of the families who fast with us, and for God’s blessings of abundance upon them and that true to His word, we will be able to witness that He prospered us in famine.

Would you like to learn more about fasting?

We maintain a repository of ideas and information we have learned over the last decade while fasting weekly for America. From scientific studies on the benefits of fasting, to the differences between intermittent dieting vs intermittent fasting, to scriptural references regarding the power of fasting to the history of first century Christians who stated believers are obligated to fast weekly, we hope you will find numerous insights with our free resource located here.

Together let us also implore Heaven while fasting for intentions you have highlighted:

4) For Mike Lindell who is putting himself on the front lines suing over the election fraud that has taken place and for all of the warriors who are stepping up around the nation to fight for the gospel – May The Father cover them in the blood of our savior,  protect them and their families from evil and bring victory to their endeavors.

5) For priests, ministers and all who aspire to lead others to the Lord, that the Holy Spirit will reign down upon them as at Pentecost filling them to overflowing with an understanding of what the Lord wants, courage and the desire to preach what He would have them preach and protection and strength from all evil that comes against them. 

6) For the Americans jailed after January 6th who were admitted to the Capitol building by the police, and who were not found to have destroyed any property at the capitol yet who have been held captive ever since on our own soil - That God's Spirit will move quickly to bring justice back to this land by freeing them while enlightening Americans how to bring God's justice back to our nation.
