At the beginning of the year I wrote this post on fasting and why you should do it. I believe it is worth reading if you don’t know much about fasting or are not sure where to begin. I outline the results of fasting using biblical examples such as Esther and Daniel. In addition to that I discuss my first fasting experience. I also lay out our times of corporate fasting as Hosea Women International. The January and April fasts have already happened so here are the details of the remaining fasts for 2019:
Our 2019 fasting schedule: (3 days of fasting and prayer)
July 2019 – From the 9th to the 11th
Fasting and prayer for marriage and family. For singles to get into God ordained marriages, for existing marriages to be sustained and for restoration of those that were ordained by God but have broken apart. The restoration and strengthening of all relationships, such as family relationships and friendships.
October 2019 – From the 9th to the 11th
Fasting and prayer for revival, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and experience of the manifest presence of God. “And afterward,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams,
your young men will see visions.” Joel 2 verse 28.
These are for our corporate body as Hosea Women. If you decide to join us, please don’t let this deter you from fasting on your own or with people close to you for what they need fasting for. There’s no need to wait for July and October if there’s something in particular you feel led to fast for or about.
We hope you will join us in the next fast. If you intend to do so, please let us know in the comments or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can include you in our prayers.
