We are in very different times. On the one hand we see a range of significant challenges for our nations, but these are also times of significant blessing as we see more people praying, more people seeking spiritual answers and a growing passion to know Jesus more. 

Iā€™m filled with hope in my heart for another great spiritual awakening across the United Kingdom that results in multitudes turning to Jesus.

For many years I have been working with young adults across the UK in my work called Prayer Storm and with colleagues across the movement for prayer and mission. We all recognise that 2016 will not be an ordinary year; we are not in normal times. Our constant challenge in these times is to hear what God is saying to us.

We sense the Lord calling His church to a season of fasting and prayer.  In particular we have felt for some time that we should have 40 days of prayer and fasting in Lent as we lead up to Easter.  I - and many others - believe we are approaching a time of great harvest, a great change in the spiritual climate of our nations. This is why Luke 10:2 ā€“ Jesus prayer for labourers has become a focal point for this call to fasting and prayer. Imagine multiple Church Communities committing to fast and pray over the lent season with a united sense of purpose. This could be part of how God wants to move in our Cities and Nations. 


I believe we are yet to see the fullness of the fulfillment of the prophecy of Joel 2:28. 

"For the Glory of the latter house is going to be greater than the former" Haggai 2:9. Again and again we see through history that God releases sovereign visitations to His people when they seek Him united in fasting and prayer. The opportunities are huge and the church needs to be ready. Please inspire and encourage your church to fast and pray.

On this website we will give guidance and information on how to fast and what to pray about. We will be working with others in the movement for prayer and mission to provide support and resources. But it all boils down to a simple message ā€“ things are changing, we need to get ready, we need to fast and pray, the harvest fields are ripe. To join The Fast sign up below.
