Today marks the beginning of a 40 day fast and prayer for marriage! I invite you to join us in fasting and praying in faith that God will move in amazing ways in each of our marriages! When we launched this fast last year I felt so much closer to God and to my husband. One woman who joined me in the fast commented and said,
“This fast saved my marriage!”
For more information on fasting please check out my article from last years 40 Day Fast:
There are two simple questions that you need to answer to do this fast…
What are you fasting from?
What are you fasting for?
When you fast from something it should be something that would be challenging for you to give up. Fasting from something is a sacrifice and it represents the sacrifice Jesus made for us of dying on a cross for our sins, so that we may have eternal life with God! Every time you desire that thing in the next 40 days it should remind you to thank Jesus for His sacrifice and it should also remind you to pray!
You can pray and petition for anything, but I urge you to also be in prayer for your marriage!
My husband and I decided to fast from two things. One is eating out! The convenience of eating out has always so easy for us, but I am excited about this challenge! I hope that it also encourages more family time spent at home as a result. 🙂 The other is more personal that I won’t be sharing about.
We are praying for more intimacy in our marriage. That we can reconnect and grow deeper of our understanding of one another. We are also praying for Unveiled Wife! That God takes this ministry to the next level and that many more wives join our community and become inspired!
Also, today I shared a video message on a correlation found in the story of Esther that was perfect for leading us into this fast! Please check that out below:
“Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” – Hebrews 4:16
Some of you are experiencing hardships in your marriage, maybe a crazy cycle that won’t stop spinning or you and your husband are on the verge of divorce…. Please consider joining us in this fast and pray in faith that God will restore your marriage!
It is not too late to join us!! No matter what day it is…JUST JUMP IN!
