Update your commitment

God teaches His people to meditate on the Scriptures every morning and evening, but best estimates show that only about one-third of American Christians read the Bible once a day while 27% read it more than once per week (Lifeway Research). The remaining nearly 50% rarely read the Scriptures at all.

This dearth of Bible intake is one of the primary reasons for our country’s Christian decline and moral decay. If we want a return to God, then it’s time for a return to massive intake of the Scriptures among all American Christians.

This two-week fast urges Christians to do two things.

  1. Abstain from food for some or all of 14 days as a way of humbling ourselves before God and repenting of our spiritual laziness and neglect of God’s written word.
  2. Immerse oneself in Scripture by reading the entire New Testament during the 14-day fast. Christian Union America will provide the 14-day reading plan and an email devotional each day of the fast.

Each person who signs up for this 14-day fast will receive an email devotional each day of the fast. Daily devotions will focus on the value of the Bible and the readings from the New Testament. May His name be magnified, as His people return to Him with their whole heart.

How to fast? Each participant will decide how to fast, that is, abstain from food and/or drink during these 14 days. The Bible provides different examples of fasting, from eating only one meal per day to forgoing all foods for multiple days in a row. Only rarely and in very exceptional circumstances does someone abstain from both food and drink. Ask God how you should fast, and please consult your doctor if you have any questions or concerns about fasting. Fasting is primarily a means of humbling our hearts to seek after God.

How will your life, your loved ones, and our country be different if we all seriously repent and return to God?

God's Next Move in America

America’s Christian heritage is among the greatest of all the nations in the world. God’s Kingdom has thrived here through the 1700s, 1800s, and 1900s, largely due to nationwide moves of God’s Spirit. We need another history-making move of God. By His sovereign grace, God ensures that we play a part in Heaven’s work. He draws near to us when we draw near to Him (James 4:8). We must ask, seek, and knock for an outpouring of His Spirit (Luke 11:5-13).

“Whenever God is about to do something truly great,
He first sets His people praying!” Matthew Henry, 1662-1714

Before you go, would you like to spend more time seeking God?

It’s hard to carve out time to sit in God’s presence and learn what He wants to teach us when we are daily bombarded by distraction. That’s why we’ve equipped thousands of Christians like you to seek God and pray for revival to come to our hearts and nation. This free 5-lesson course has 25 daily readings that will rekindle your prayer life.

You’ve demonstrated such a heart for revival, we thought you’d want to know about this opportunity.
