Fasting for a brighter future
1. Tell us the vision behind National Fast SA
As a country, we have neglected Jesus, so Satan has had his way with this place for so long. As a result, there is so much ungodliness that has saturated our nation that South Africa has become a modern Sodom and Gomorrah. You know there’s a problem when you receive more complaints of staff carrying out witchcraft in the office than late coming! For the past three years the Lord has laid on my heart to start a National Day of Fasting and Prayer. The vision is that the country will come to repentance and humble ourselves once again before our God. We are a nation that is known to have the most violent crime statistics in the world, so if we turn back to godliness for the world to see, they cannot deny that there is a Living God. This is ultimately for God’s glory and to build up warriors in His Kingdom.
2. What can be achieved through fasting?
Fasting with prayer is a mighty weapon our Lord God has so graciously provided for us to conquer in life. Fasting brings your spirit in alignment with God’s will (not ours), and becomes so ‘in tune’ with the Holy Spirit that strongholds are torn down and chains are broken. South Africa has so many strongholds tightened around her, that repentance, fasting and prayer is the weapon to break this oppression.
3. Why now?
Because we were born for such a time as this! In Acts 2 we are told that a generation of champions will rise up during the end times – all this darkness has set the stage for our lights to shine in order to make great advancements for the Kingdom of God. We were created in Christ to do good works, and not to just be someone but to do something. I discern that there has been a shift in the spirit realm in 2014 – God has major things planned, we are living the end times and the Kingdom needs end time players, because the bigger the turnaround for this country, the bigger God’s glory! Now is the time to be that light on a hill – nations must be drawn to our light and see our exalted God!
4. Why is this South Africa’s biggest hope?
Jesus is, and always has been, South Africa’s biggest hope. As humans we sometimes forget this very important Truth. God tells us in His Word that He has thoughts of peace toward us, not the evil we are experiencing now; and that He wants to give us a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11). Jesus Himself fasted; and when He fasted for forty days in the Wilderness He walked out of there and literally changed the world! We need to follow His example and change our nation.
5. How can people take part?
The National Day of Fasting and Prayer falls on the second Sunday of January every year. However, that is not all– I am constantly being led by the Spirit to do more. He has led us to gather warriors to fast for 40 days for the 2014 elections. I am excited to see the move of God here! Please get in touch via any of our links to the right.
