The importance of fasting in spiritual warfare and breaking strongholds cannot be overemphasized
Martinez, California (PRWEB) September 15, 2012
While Calling Continuously for Donations, Volunteers, and the Registration of Those Planning to Attend, Save America Gathering Planners Call on The Church and Supporters to Prepare, Cleanse, and Strengthen Themselves Through Biblically Inspired Fasting.
The planners of the Save America Gathering http://www.saveamericagathering.com, the Washington, DC, prayer gathering scheduled for October 20, 2012, on the National Mall, are adding a strong focus on biblical fasting to preparations for the sacred assembly.
“The importance of fasting in spiritual warfare and breaking strongholds cannot be overemphasized,” said Rev. Kevin Richardson, citing Jesus’ words in Mark 9:29 (NKJV). Organizers are encouraging participants, both those attending and those interceding from a distance, to add fasting to their prayers. Fasting may be regular, partial, or full. Types of biblical fasts include:
- Esther fast (Esther 4:16)—nothing for 3 days
- Daniel fast (Daniel 10:2–3)—no meat, wine, or rich food for 21 days
- Hebrew boys fast (Daniel 1:11–16)—vegetables and water
- 40-day fast (Ex. 34:28, Deut. 9:18, 1 Kings 19:8, Matt. 4:2, etc.)
- as led by the Spirit
