Fasting is abstaining from food. It's not the end in itself - rather we replace the time we would have spent eating with seeking God. We fast because we're hungry for the Lord. We fast because God offers us something better than politics. Appetite dictates the direction of our lives. Shift your appetite towards the Lord.
Christians don't fast because they're full of worldly food. God is looking for believers hungry for Him. God offers more than what our world offers.
Our nation needs believers to fast on Election Day. Will you fast Tuesday, November 3? Practice the discipline of self-denial for the sake of our nation. Replace the food you'll eat with prayer for our nation.
We're looking to the wrong people to solve our problems. I'm inviting you to practice the spiritual discipline of fasting for our nation on November 3.
If you're going to participate, invite others to join you by using the hashtag: #LexFast
God answered Jehoshaphat's fast - the Lord said, "For the battle is not yours, but God's." (2 Chronicles 20:15)
