The call of Fasting, prayer, it’s not time to be passive in our response as Christians but to use our weapons.
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Today the Son is Shining in hearts throughout America. People are talking more maybe today on the internet about Jesus and praying for Gods help. I pray we do not miss the facts that in life we can get busy, distracted by the world and lose sight of what is truly important.
Spending quality time with our Father in Heaven
Reading the bible
Repenting of our sins, searching our hearts
Turning from areas making changes God puts on our hearts to change.
Some people look to Doctors, Governments, others for all the answers in their lives but God has the answers. God uses all these wonderful people to help us, but the answers come from God.
Humbling ourselves is a sign of powerful people. Those who see humbling as weak truly do not understand what it means or the significance of it. Humbling is a process of surrender to God, his authority, love, power, moving in our lives. It provides clarity for us, focus on what is important and strength for our everyday lives.
The bible teaches us in Proverbs the start of all wisdom is in the Fear or Respect of the Lord.
Christians today are not powerless but powerful and its time we follow scriptures we should be in a time of fasting and prayer for our people, country, leaders, and those around the world. This is not a time for division but unity, strength, love, prayer, fasting, and following scriptures. It is time for many around our great country to stand together crying out to God from our hearts for healing, God still heals, still delivers, defends, protects, God is the same today, yesterday and forever.

So interesting to find this today! I am calling the Church in MN to fast with me until all houses of worship are reopened and our freedoms of religion restored. It’s a spiritual affront to the Lord to close an entire state to worship at this point. We need the Lord to intervene, and remain in Him to oppose the principalities that would crush worship. Thanks for your clear post!
I will be praying with you.

Thank you so much! I was hesitant to begin my fast today to publicly state to our Governor here that “Worship is essential!” I drive Uber since I am blocked from my normal job. This morning, He brought me out to Stillwater, close to the site I was married, to take in the beautiful St. Croix valley as the sun rose. The lift bridge there is kind of an architectural icon of the city of Stillwater. Today, the Lord used it to show me a vision of His church; a strong structure that is adaptable. Many whose spiritual insights I trust believe He is using the virus to bring the altar of worship back into our homes. I resonate with that. Yet, I also believe He wants to confront the misbeliefs of our civic leaders, and their drive to power. Like Egypt, he will show the fragility of our culture’s “isms” and icons. The Sheriff of the Universe doesn’t even need his guns because He has authority. He stands, leans back, and just regulates!
God has given us a set of absolute truth to live our lives with but for those who reject that truth their wisdom is folly. They need to know God, they need a revival including some in our churches who have grown cold or luck warm. I do believe God is doing something great in the midsts of peoples fear
