Prayer and fasting go together like peas in a pod, seeds of a pomegranate, peanut butter and jelly, bread and butter, and … well, you get the point. Revival and fire also go together. The revival of the Nation of Israel coming out of Egypt was accompanied with a pillar of fire, Elijah and the revival on Mount Carmel was achieved with fire from heaven on a water-logged altar, revival on the day of Pentecost upon the first apostles was seen with cloven tongues of fire, the Pentecostal Awakening of the early 1900’s experienced the fire of the Holy Ghost as men like Smith Wigglesworth and GB Cashwell preached the “baptism of fire” and countless men and women received the purity and power of the Holy Spirit and fire. And, believe it or not, but ‘prayer and fasting’ and ‘revival and fire’ go together too.

“I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom. And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.” Psalm 35:13&28

Without prayer and fasting, revival fire would not be obtainable. Humility, sacrifice and worship are bellows to stoking the embers of revival fire. Prayer and fasting has become somewhat of a lost art form in the Christian Church. Our desire for revival has not waned but our practices and disciplines do not warrant the manifestations of Glory. John Piper, in his book “A Hunger For God”, wrote “If we don’t feel strong desires for the manifestations of the glory of God, it is not because we have drunk deeply and are satisfied. It is because we have nibbled so long at the table of the world. Our soul is stuffed with small things, and there is no room for the great.” (Piper, 1997). In order for a New Awakening of revival fire to embrace the church in these days there is a need to return to prayer and fasting; humility, sacrifice, and worship.

The Call to 21 Days

21 Days of Prayer and Fasting is more than just a program or method; it is a call to set apart oneself from worldly desires and seek the Lord. The length of 21 days comes from the Book of Daniel:

 In those days I, Daniel, was mourning for three weeks [21 days].  I ate no delicacies, no meat or wine entered my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, for the full three weeks. On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river (that is, the Tigris)  I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, a man clothed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist.  (Daniel 10:2-5 ESV)

21 days to fast and pray to see the Glory of the Lord. A New Awakening { #aNewAwakening } is coming to people of God and those who are spiritually prepared will see it.

In 2015, I am calling Gods people to 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting from Sunday May 3rd through Sunday May 24th. This year, Pentecost Sunday happens to fall on May 24th. I am believing God for His revival fire to fall afresh on us all as we seek His glory and for us to experience Him like never before during this Pentecost season.

A booklet has been put together to help guide us on our journey together these 21 days. The booklet has scripture and prayer points for each day. There are also interactive and soul-searching questions to respond to as you engage the glory of God. You may download this booklet here or view each days guide on http://www.PastorStrom.com. May God richly bless you as you set aside these 21 DAYS OF PRAYER AND FASTING FOR REVIVAL FIRE.
