A Statewide Fast - November 1-21
Over the last several weeks, we (Prince of Peace Church) have been getting confirming words that we were to enter a season of fasting.  But we were not certain of any details.  The timing did not seem right.  I felt that it was to encompass something bigger. Then I received a phone call from Gwen Aldridge of Lamesa (Southern Panhandle Region of TXAPN) and she shared how the Lord was calling her congregation (Lamesa Christian Fellowship) to a time of fasting, but she felt it was bigger than her local body. The Spirit confirmed in our hearts that it was for our local ministries BUT also for the entire State of Texas. This has now been confirmed by a half a dozen other ministries in the state. The fast will take place November 1-21.

What Are We Praying For?*
  • Fullness of the Holy Spirit and unity throughout the Church (John 14:12; 17:2–23). 
Spiritual breakthrough with unprecedented unity, purity, and power.
  • The great harvest (Matthew 24:14).
  • Youth revival movement (Malachi 4:6). Worldwide revival, especially among the youth of the earth.
  • Revival in Israel (Romans 9:1–11:36). Fulfillment of all the prophetic promises to national Israel.
  • Houses of prayer (Isaiah 62:6–7). The release of “grace for fasting” with worship and prayer to establish 24/7 houses of prayer in the cities of the earth, including Israel
  • Wealth of the nations (Haggai 2:7–9). Release of finances for the great harvest, the prayer movement, and the poor.
  • A wall of fire of protection (Zechariah 2:5). Divine protection over all that is birthed through prayer.
  • A Shifting of human governments into the Government of God, Nationally and in Texas Praying NOW for next year's elections that righteous men and women of God would come into Texas' leadership at all levels. (Matthew 6:10; Proverbs 29:2; 1 Timothy 2:2; Daniel 2:21; Psalm 75:7)
  • That Texas would shift into alignment with the river of God that is flooding the state both naturally and spiritually. (Psalm 93; Ezekiel 47; Revelation 22; Psalm 65:9; Psalm 78:19-20; Isaiah 8:7-8; Malachi 3:10)
How are we to fast?*
  • Seek the Lord regarding your fast.  is it food?  The internet? TV?
  • A very confirming word has gone out that we should fast from negative words and thoughts which are the primary cause for the breaking of covenant.
  • Especially meditate on Isaiah 58.
