Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you. (2 Thessalonians 3:1)
HarvestCall recognizes the need for God’s blessing and the presence of His Holy Spirit in all we attempt to do. In fact, one of our Guiding Principles states: “We will pray and fast, seeking the Holy Spirit’s direction and the Lord’s will, consistent with the Word of God.” This refers specifically to those within the organization, but we covet the prayers of the entire church, knowing that "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." James 5:16.
While the purpose and role of prayer is well understood and commonly practiced, there is less understanding about the purpose and role of fasting.
What is fasting, why is it important, how is it done, and why?
The HarvestCall board created a one-page document with this information.
If you'd like to dig deeper, ACCFS has a 7-page study on Fasting.
We humbly ask for prayer support for each of the churches, schools, and orphanages that have been established by God’s direction in Mexico, Japan, Europe, the Caribbean, the United States, and throughout the world as God leads. Many decisions have to be made, and only God can see the future and know the hearts of men. We want to be good stewards of the investment of time and capital required in the efforts to save the lost and nourish the believer.
We are reminded of God’s will for his children in Luke 10:2: Therefore said he unto them, “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.”
