Dear Pastor Lou…. This is in response to your video post yesterday, 2 November 2020 during the Three-Day Ester Fast…. 1 Kings 18:36-38. Be encouraged.

36 At the usual time for offering the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet walked up to the altar and prayed, “O Lord, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at your command. 37 O Lord, answer me ! Answer me so these people will know that you, O Lord, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.”

38 Immediately the fire of the Lord flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust. It even licked up all the water in the trench!

Romans 13:1 “Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.”

Amen and amen…. Be encouraged for this is a day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice in it!

Blessings and the Lord’s strength be with you and yours…. Amen Your brother in Christ, Duane Ashton

Lou and Family,

In 2009 my father, who was a giant in the faith and my guide unexpectedly went on to be with the Lord. His passing was life changing in so many ways for my family and me. In early 2018 I had a significant dream where I was walking through a Wal-mart in search of something. I was walking towards the front of the store when I passed a man and in passing realized, “that was my Dad!” I turned and chased him down, following him into one of the aisles. He was wearing a brown leather jacket and brown leather, non-descript shoes. Which I believe are significant of the common man (the nameless, faceless ones). I grabbed him and spun him around to face me (turning of the hearts of the fathers to the sons and sons to the fathers). I held onto him tightly (like Elisha and Elijah I would not let him go before he blessed me with the double portion of his mantel) jacket and shoes being his mantle which was that of the common man. He stepped back he looked at me without expression then turned and walked out of the store. I chased behind him wanting to follow him but could not. He walked out of the front doors into a blinding light and the dream ended.

Since then, I’ve had so many other dreams. Many with significances that I don’t fully understand yet. I seek to know God and know His ways, with all that I am. To be a Nazarite to the call. To walk in purity and obedience and to be a man of fervent prayer. With that I just want to say that our family stands with you and your team. I am part of your “Briefing” family and follow the fasting and prayer challenges you regularly send out. God bless you and all that you and Chris Berglund are doing for the Lord.

As of today, October 17th, 2020, I’m on the 25th day of my 40 day fast to end on Halloween. The purpose is to set myself in agreement through the Holy Spirit wilh all those around the world who are fasting and praying over what is happening in the world. The US election is critical, and even though I am Canadian, I believe that praying into the elections and coming against the extra witchcraft planned for this particular year, in the name of Yeshua, is critical. So far I’m the only one fasting for this in my community, but the larger body of Yeshua is the greater congregation and I’m happy to be called one of you, fellow fasters. Hallelujah!

Lou, several years ago, actually during the revival on the Mott Auditiorium, you went to preach in another city, and I went with my friend Olivia. There you prophesied to me my ministry was one like Hanna, praying day and night. Since them He has called me to fast more and to take the vow of the Nazirite as in Number 6. Presently is my third time and the longest. when I took the vow the first time He gave me peace in the midst of the storm. He has blessed me so much. Presently the prophetic anointing in on me more than ever. I am on the fast over a week until the election. Praying specifically for the abortion law and for safety to the President. I love your ministry. Yehovah sent fire from Heaven in 1979 to burn my idols It is written in my book “New Life and Glory” on Kindle now on Amazon. I want to encourage you to continue for your voice will shake everything that can be shaken for the anointing is on you. I pray for your health. I am also publishing “The Lost Sheep.” and other. I a missionary of 81 years old, and serving my Elohim with all my heart. He is revealing Himself to me and will do this with everyone who will seek Him. Yehovah is LOVE. HE LOVES EACH ONE OF US, BUT AMERICA MUST REPENT. NOW IS THE TIME. REVIVAL IS COMING MUCH BIGGER THAN IN THE PAST. KEEP ON LOOKING UP, IT IS EVEN NOW BEGINNING. SHALOM

I am so blessed to have been changed by Lou Engle’s passion for souls, this nation, and to end abortion.
I believe it was 2003 that I drove from ABQ to Las Vegas to go to ICLV Holy Spirit Conf to hear Chuck Pierce. I didn’t have money so I drove all day Monday to hear Chuck, then was planning to drive home Tues. so I didn’t have to get another hotel room. I had never heard of Lou Engle who was to speak the next morning, but I thought, “Since I’m here, I should go to the morning service and then leave.” Well, God had other plans as that morning, Lou preached such a powerful message that we were all on our faces for hours crying out to God for souls, this nation, to end abortion, etc, and I didn’t leave the service until 1:30 p.m. I was so moved that I couldn’t leave so I went back that night and I finally walked out of the service after weeping for hours at around 10 p.m. I drove all night to get home and wept and prayed all the way, stopping for a quick nap in Flagstaff in a parking lot. That was the beginning of my journey. I went to the Call in San Diego, drove to Col Springs to Dutch Sheets church and heard Lou again, as well as all the powerful men of God. I went to Azusa Call in LA in 2014, I think, and that was transforming! Every time we cried out in repentance, it poured rain! WOW!! I will never forget it–repenting to the African American, First People, Hispanics, and the Lord and it was the best day of my life.
Young people, get on God’s side and cry out! I am now 72, and will not stop crying out to end abortion. I was in San Francisco when Roe v Wade was legalized, and was a missionary in Fillmore, with the Baptist and did not even know about abortion, what it was, etc. I had not heard the word until 1972. Planned Parenthood was already performing abortions in SF, not only destroying babies lives, but mothers’ lives. This must end. It is no longer 60 million–it’s probably 100 million. Let us turn to the Lord with all our hearts and bring an end to abortion and the beginning of a great revival.
I just heard Lou and Sean’s interview–everyone needs to watch it. I have been a teacher in high school as I did all this travelling and I am retiring soon to do full-time work for the Lord–whatever it is! God bless you!!!! Diane

I left The Send Orlando 2019 with a mandate. I fasted 53 days. Revival broke out in my son addicted to pills for 15 yrs. A call came on his life. I stand with you in this fast for our nation to break out like my son did, with repentance and turning to back to God Jesus you are our only answer. With you Lou. #40days

Deb

I am on my 39th day of fasting with water and communion daily. When God led me into this time he encouraged me with this, “Consider this time beauty treatments, as Esther had before meeting her King. This is a time of consecration when I am making you without spot or wrinkle. This is the filling of the lamp with annointing oil. Readiness, preparedness leading to a great outpouring celebration on Pentecost.” I did not know my 40th day would be on Hebrew calendar Pentecost. God has let me experience so much pertaining to sowing in the time between Passover and Pentecost. He told me that what is sown in this 50 days will experience abundant multiplication in the season after Pentecost. Our home church has boldly reached out to the lost of our community in the midst of lock down. Every week God gives me something to sow into the body that meets at my house. They. In turn, bring back testimonies of how they multiplied the sowing and saw God bless others.
I heard you say you may go 100 days. I will seek God to see if I will join you in that. Blessings!

During the fast the Lord went to a level deeper than I have ever been. Even things I had dealt with and broken in the past and forgotten, came up in dreams from God. He’s been working in us deeper, going past the place of functioning well for His Kingdom, and going after every single buried thing apart from Himself. He is cleaning up and building up his Bride. He led me to pull all weeds, cut down all poisonous trees and cut out all roots and stumps from my garden both in the natural and the garden of my spirit and heart. It’s God’s timing that the fast and quarantine were aligned at the same time. Sequestered with the Lord, He drew us deeper into his chambers and we have been being transformed for the work his glorious Harvest, which I believe we are on the he cusp of.

Angélica

Cuando escuché a mi hija hablar del movimiento de Jesús y lo que se iba a iniciar fue como si en ese momento una nueva atmósfera me envolvía y sólo entendí que cada una debemos orar por 5 almas para salvación y que son miles los que vamos a ayunar por 40 dias.
El Señor se encargó desde ese momento que susurró a mis oídos. Su compañia fue crucial para pasar cada tentación y sentir su presencia.
Cada día descubría hasta hoy un hambre espiritual y sentir cada vez correr en mis venas su palabra.
Esperar a El su despertar a cualquier hora y abrir la puerta para que entre a invadir este hogar ha sido un honor inmerecido.
Su mover, que ha despertado y hablar más que nunca con aquellos que al igual que yo estamos recluidas, encarceladas en nuestros hogares y solo podemos salir al trabajo. Gracias Señor por esto vivido.

Tenho um chamado profético para as nações e no dia 7 orei a Deus que me confirma-se mais uma vez sua promessa. Na madrugada do dia 7 para o dia 8 sonhei que era convidada a pregar e Deus me dizia que eu tinha que pregar João 3:16. No devocional do dia 8 falou sobre o versículo e sobre ele ser o grande tema da terra. Foi incrível isso. E também no terceiro dia de Jesus tive um sonho dizendo que o anticristo já estava aqui e eu via o papa com ele em uma reunião. Vi o lugar da reunião e um mês depois um amiga me mostra um vídeo onde o lugar, o papa e o anticristo eram os mesmos do sonho. Fiquei impressionada. Não assisto TV por isso não tenho essas informações. Foi incrível

I’ve had quite a few dreams during this fast. I wanted to share 2 briefly as I believe they confirmed the fulfillment of the purpose of the fast.
I dreamt my Mother and I were walking down the sidewalk next to a highway when a huge church with beautiful windows dropped out of the sky and landed right next to the sidewalk (not set in with a parking lot or walkway in front of it). We were going to go in when a withered desperate woman knelt at my feet crying and she put my hands on her head. I could feel how she felt and I knew what my God was going to do for her.
Also I dreamt my husband and I went up to an old man to buy his huge motor, he said that it was really fast and powerful and he was selling it because he was upgrading. He said it was a LandRover. I looked in my hands and I had rolls and rolls of money.
I am new at interpreting but I know we were praying for power and the second coming and I know the world is so desperate right now, God is going to do amazing things!

Karine

I wish to share with you a dream that I had at dawn from the 30th to the 31st of March, a period in which fasting was taking place. I dreamed that my husband and I were on a beach. We saw many people on the sand, each with their own surfboard. There was also a teacher and he was teaching all those people how to surf. In the dream, I was surprised because I thought surfing was easy, but I saw the teacher teach the inclination of the body and several other details. So, I said to my husband, our surfing needs a lot of technique. At that time I don’t know if sleeping or awake I understood what that dream meant. I heard, it’s the third wave. I understood that this was the preparation for the third wave of revival. We are being prepared for God’s third move on earth and that move is coming.

Wesley

I never felt anything so good in my heart, the presence of Jesus, Jesus rescued me I thought he would not accept me anymore, but whoever was not accepting him was me, this love rescued me and today I have life eternal life

Andy,Marion & Mandy

This is our story:
Our family migrated from the Philippines to the United States in 2011, back in the Philippines we are blessed beyond measure to be a part of “The Call, Jesus Revolution” back in 2004, after the gathering, the revival fires spread across neighboring towns and cities and regions. Our little church in a small town was set ablaze with revival fires, the visitation of the Holy Spirit, a mighty move of God that released mighty encounters (dreams, visions, angelic visitations, baptism of the Holy Spirit, gifts, signs, wonders and miracles) that marked us for all eternity. From then on the fruits are multiplied as numbers grew and a Jesus movement was birthed through a glorious increase in men and women, young and old hungry for God, seeking His face,
an expansion of prayer movements, missions movement, revival fires poured out among the youth and churches and it spread quickly like wild fire. Coming from a Southern Baptist background from the southern part of the Philippines, when we moved to the U.S we lived in Southern California for a number of years, and God moved us to South Texas, a mighty man of God, a mighty intercessor who is also our mentor and spiritual father declared over us a prophecy of the “Fire from the south” and we have been marked to carry that fire wherever we go. We are now residing in Dallas (North of Texas) prior to our move we received a vision of a harvest field and we knew that God is about to re-locate us soon and here we are today living out the call God has placed in our lives and our family and we intend to run with perseverance until we finish our race.
Poppa Lou Engle along with the other Generals of God – you have been a huge part of our lives and we thank Abba God for your life, your call, and your obedience and we hold you up and your team in prayer as you fulfill the mandate of Heaven in this realm. Abba God has been meeting us powerfully during this Fast than ever before, dreams and visions and mighty encounters are pouring out on us like rain. The hunger for intimacy with Jesus grows deep with each passing day.
Towards the end of this Fast we heard Abba God say “sow your seed on good soil and you will reap a harvest, watch and see what I will do” along with this Scripture in 2Corinthians 9:10-15. We felt it strongly that Abba God is leading us to partner with you and your ministry for the End-time harvest. We Love you & we will continue to stand with you, believing and pressing in to see the fulfillment of every Word and every promise, for He who began a good work in you is Faithful to complete it (Philippians 1:6).

Donna

Hi Lou, this has been a life transforming experience for me. I thank you for encouraging the church on this 40 day fast. I have been seeking the Lord with all my heart for the church our world and nation as well as personal breakthroughs and desires of my heart to walk in the Spirit and for His gifts for His namesake so the gospel is proclaimed. God has caused mountains to crumble and by faith I believe He is granting me the desires of my heart. I fully believe He is going to pour out His Spirit and I will stand in praying for it. I am so thankful to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Ana Carolina

Bom… Foram 40 dias maravilhosos, de experiências incríveis, tive sonhos sobre meu ministério, tive revelação da parte de Deus, senti o Espírito Santo profundamente em minha casa, tive também momentos difíceis, mas com a ajuda de Deus eu venci. Eu me sinto mais cheia de Deus e não quero parar por aqui, eu quero mais, muito mais. Nestes dias eu aprendi a ouvir a voz de Deus e indentifica-la. Cada devocional foi uma injeção de ânimo e fé! Glória a Deus por estes dias e Glória a Deus pelos dias que ainda virão! Que Deus derrame Seu Espírito por sobre toda a terra!!!

Hayley

I did a 40 day fast last year (2019) that started March 13. My husband did it along with me. The day we started our 6 year old, unaware of the fast we were starting, told us she had a dream that her and her sisters were behind us as my husband and I “fought the bad guys”.
We saw great victory through the fast, my husband fasted for a co worker to find her biological mom, and she did! But one of the most beautiful victories we wouldn’t learn about until November 2019.
Right after this 40 day fast ended, the Lord called me into another 40 day fast for two friends who were trying to save their marriage after adultery. After that fast was over, the wife, who had been the one cheated on, experienced freedom and healing from wounds and they are doing great today!!!! Praise You Jesus!

Our 4 year old kept telling us she was going to have a brother.
Then we lost two babies in the fall; after we felt the Lord say it was time for another baby.

2 days after we lost the first baby…we received the call we were officially licensed foster parents!

And in November, 3 days after we lost our second baby…. we received a called…about a 7 month old baby boy who needed a foster home.

We learned his birthdate: March 31.
He was born during our 40 day fast.

And now we are in the process of adopting him!!!!

He can do more think we think or imagine.
Fasting and prayer is such a beautiful gift we get to have.

Linda Fisher

Just thinking about Jesus spending 40 days in the wilderness, fasting. Of course none of us had any idea we would be isolated during this time! I am trusting that God will do a mighty work in me and all of the Body during this time.

Amanda

Started the fast through IHOPKC and God is really showing me that in him and through him all fear is gone and the burden of how much this world needs Jesus and how to show love to the lost!

William Eberle

What you are doing is contagious! I began my forty day fast on March 17 and didn’t even hear about the Jesus Fast until I was seven days in! Day 4 was really miserable; for half the night, the Devil was twisting my arm to quit. In the morning I told him, borrowing from the Navy Seals, “I will die before I quit!” Press on!

Marc

My eldest son (18) talked to me yesterday about talking to Jesus again. He said with this time being at home etc. he noticed he’s been selfish and that he felt like the Israelites just going to God when he needed something. But he recognize he’d drifted etc. And last night he voluntarily picked up his bible which he hasn’t done for a long time. I’m thinking and hoping and praying that his younger brother (15) will see this and pick up his bible again. Years ago when they were still small we had a prophecy over them that they were “Sons of thunder”. They used to prophecy and tell people about Jesus as children.

Daniela

Realmente ha sido un tiempo de despertar un deseo por más de Dios y dejar a un lado mis pensamientos, deseos, y anhelos por buscar lo que Dios quiere, en mi ciudad, nación en el mundo en mi vida .

Paola Arevalo

Hi, I’m Paola, I’m from South America, I’m living in London Ontario, without knowing about this fast or ministry in February. God took me to start a fast that will start on March 1 to focus with the call to evangelism and youth and today I find out of this world fast and I am amazed because God is not of any denomination but of the hearts that love and serve him passionate for the kingdom and the gospel.

Tina

Hi Lou,
I’ve never heard of you before this morning when an elder in our church forwarded your email for an urgent call to a global 3 day fast. I must tell you, that I nearly lept out of my bed where i was reading the email on my phone! Why? Because, in being away from my family this week so I can work, I had been texting them in a group chat, different challenges that I was personally being called to during some prayer and bible reading time. But on Tuesday evening, around 9:00, I texted them and told them that as i was reading in Esther, chapter 4:15, concerning her request for the Jews to fast for three days for her, I asked them if they would be willing to consider following the call. So Wednesday morning I began my fast. By the end of the day I felt that to fast for three days may be a little over the top, so I resolved to break my fast Thursday morning – the morning I received the forwarded email. The morning I lept from my bed and knelt on the floor in tears. God – you were speaking to me!!! How humbled I felt to part of what He is doing. I thought you would want to know that He is speaking this word all over. Thank you for following through on those promptings!!! I will never be the same. Tina Horning, Ephrata, PA

This fast with the focus on prayer has really opened up the word of God. I’m like a spiritual child who has leanred to run! The Holy Spirit is moving, and my husband’s ankles were healed after I laid hands on him. Luke 4:18 Thank you, Jesus!

Carlos Sarmiento

When I heard about the Jesus fast/40 days, I thought it would be something that I would participate in.  I even put it in my planner for 2020 and blocked out those 40 days. But, by the end of the year/2019, I thought maybe this wasn’t something that I should participate in. However, sometime in mid January I begin to feel that perhaps the Lord did want me to participate in the fast. So I asked for a confirmation and on February 9th I had a very profound dream that woke me up feeling very strongly that the Lord was directing me to do so.

In the dream, I was with three very prominent ministers among other evangelists, leaders and believers. I remember telling them in deep distress (especially to the three of them) that we needed to pray but to fast as well. I felt a very strong sense of urgency about this. The scene changed and I saw myself pounding the floor on my face/knees crying out to the Lord for mercy, repentance and to pour out His Spirit upon our nation. I felt such a deep stirring/mourning within me. As I mourned and travailed, (I literally began to moan in my sleep) I suddenly saw the Lord approaching us as we continued crying out to Him. It seemed like the more we continued to cry out, pound the floor, weep and travail, the closer He drew to us. It was really stirring and I felt such a sense of the fear and terror of the Lord on me. I didn’t realize it but My wife was hearing me moan in my sleep and woke me up because she thought I was having a nightmare.

I am taking the dream to mean that the Lord is definitely directing me to join this fast. I have given the invitation to those in our community here at the Orlando House of Prayer and fellow minister/pastor friends of mine.

My first 40 day fast was in 2000 when Bill Bright called for 200,000 intercessors for repentance and revival and here I am 20 years later once again going others across this nation and around the world. Thank you for allowing me to do it again. Lord Jesus Come Do it Again. Chuck Norman

Jan Bailey

Saved from a bar stool to a church pew 30 years ago and my heart cry has been for The revival of all revivals. I had the privilege and honor in a mysterious way to be at Jesus Culture for their first 3 years in California. As you know Banning has been longing and equipping multi generations to be a part of HIS Move in us first then through us….. what a great time to be alive…
Praying and fasting for the explosion to have such a rippling effect. You Lou are a warrior and I hear HIM say…. great job fine and faithful servant… jan Bailey

Stanly

Im stanly, from Canada, we do a ministry called as Ark of God Canada, upon a divine calling from Lord to equip people for a revival by ” connecting people with God” . Lord has been directing me to pray for 40 days from past days and weeks and today ie 26th February, i saw the YouTube video from engle ministry for a 40 days fasting call. Thank God for His confirmation and plans.

Kim

I was abused by a Satanic cult and developed multiple personalities. I became a Christian at 18. I was a bisexual & lead an occult group among my friends. Jesus spoke to me one day. I knew it was Him, though I don’t know how. He pursued me. I gave my life to Jesus in my bedroom. I was changed instantly. I was beat up & kicked out of my home following my conversion. It had no impact on me! Jesus was my everything! I have integrated all personalities & was delivered from demons. I Was also delivered out of drugs & alcohol. I am now happily married 25 years. We have 5 beautiful children & one granddaughter. I help lead a women’s group in teaching & prayer. I have helped others get free from the occult & occult curses. Jesus is the name above all names! Don’t give up! No matter how big your problems or issues are. God knows & He sees you & He loves you!

Jessi

Like Paul, I have a past which includes undeniable sin, physical chains, and prison. I have a calling for writing and teaching the message of Christ. For me, this fast is a declaration of victory over addiction, to cleanse me of toxicity, and propel me into my calling.

Neldian

Last year I had done the 40 days Jesus fast after going to The Send in Orlando-Fl, and through the process of fasting I was free from depression, one of my friend that done with us the 40 days fating heard that the Lord told her that I was being free from the spirit of depression ! Praise the Lord for that !

A friend invited me to the 2019 fast. I had never been able to really fast, so I felt encouraged to be fasting with someone else. The fast was not smooth, but on the 7th day of the fast, I had a great encounter with my Daddy, speaking to me in an audible voice. I also did not know that the fast was opening new doors of fasting in my life! Now I have the grace to fast more and longer. Glory to God!! I can’t wait for the “Jesus Fast” to begin. I have expectation of more intimacy with Jesus.
I thank the LORD for this ministry.

I came from a extremely broken home my mum left me when I was Only four years old, my dad was a really bad drunk and was violent, I was never allowed out , I felt like a prisoner life was awful I hated my entire existence at the age of 11 I built the courage up to run away from home and I never went back ever, I lived on the streets for 10 years whilst spending some time in prison mainly due to my severe drug alcohol addiction I also went from foster care and various children’s homes not settling anywhere constantly feeling empty and broken. Fast forward a few years and I was at my worst on the verge of a nervous breakdown I couldn’t function with drugs or beer and my life was in bits and all thought about doing was ending it all, I ended up climbing over a motor way bridge when I was 21 with the aim of taking my own life, but Jesus had a different plan for my life about 12 months before going to the bridge my best friend overdosed on drugs and and nearly died as a result he found faith and started going to church. One day he pulled me on the estate where we are both from and told me that Jesus loves me I was dead in side and had no time for religion or God but out of respect I smiled and just walked off, right back to the bridge it was about 2am in the morning with not a soul in sight as I am about to jump when suddenly I hear the voice of my friend in my head saying Jesus loves you and at first I was like wow I’m totally loosing my mind but then I heard it again but this time I heard it in my heart and something powerful happened that night on that cold dark scary bridge I had a encounter with Jesus , he saved me he really touched my heart in such a powerful way and has been blessing my life ever since I have now been clean for 22 years I am married with 5 children and 4 amazing grandchildren with another on the way, God has called me as an evangelist I help to pastor the local church which I belong to alongside with my wife Lesley. I have such a great hunger to preach the word of God and see the captives set free and the world changed for Jesus , I am so thankful for what God Has brought me from and I am so privileged that He chooses to use me in different ways to share his amazing Gospel one of the scriptures that really connects with my spirit is Jeremiah 29:11 for I know the plans I have for you Lee says the lord plans to prosper you not to harm you but to give you a Hope and a future.

On December 2018, I was randomly searching for a teaching video to watch on YouTube by Lou and one video popped up that was no coincidence. It is called, “The Nazerite Vow” and what changed my life was when he said, “Oh, God, raise up nazerite parents who will raise nazerite children”

As I listened to this great man passionately teach, I desired to do a 40 day fast starting the day of my birthday in January (the following month).During the fast I specifically asked the Lord that our next child be a son. 2 months later I found out I was pregnant!

During my 6 week scan I was told there was an empty gestational sac that they thought either I lost the pregnancy or I was not pregnant at all. I told them, “oh, I am pregnant and it is a son.” I also had confidence my pregnancy was fine because 4 weeks before my positive test the Lord told me his name which is Hawaiian and his name means:

“A fearless warrior that moves like a cool wind (breeze) over the mountains”.

When I was 8 weeks pregnant (around the time my son showed up on the ultrasound to the surprise of the doctor who thought he didn’t exist) I asked the Lord to confirm the name he chose for our son – that night He gave me a dream…

I saw a mighty/intimidating man to behold with very dark red, leathery looking skin (he obviously spent a lot of time in the sun) and very long (almost to his waist), thick, black hair surfing on a surfboard made out of Koa wood, on a tsunami wave that looked to be massively hundreds of feet high!

This wild man was surfing with total ease toward an island covered in mountains and on this island were many demonic giants, as he surfed his eyes never dropped/broke focus off that island, he kept staring it down.

This tsunami wave was not water but a angelic host of warriors and the wind blowing through the mountains on the island were from the wings from this host… the closer this surfer came to the island the more violent the wind, the more violent the wind the more these demonic giants were being tossed around like rag dolls against the mountain sides – they had no control over themselves and were at the mercy of this wind and the wind was merciless.

I asked the Lord who this man was and He responded:

“He is your son. He will have the heart of a Nazerite – consecrated to Me and he will be a mighty intercessor that will bring down the high places. Raise him accordingly.”

Before I woke up I heard in the dream the chorus of a song i first heard during my fast watching a the Azusa Now stadium meeting where Native Americans sang this song, which I heard in my dream:

“When the wind of the Spirit blows, warrior, come on and ride the wind…”

Thank You, Mr. Engle, for being so faithful to the Lord and teaching about fasting and prayer… it has changed my life!

Patricia

I am from Brazil and after participate the Jesus fast last time I had so many breakthrough in my life, family and ministry. I am excited for this next year.

Carina

I would like to share my miracle story with others to help inspire them and give them hope it’s a way of me paying forward.

My name is Carina Imbrogno and I was born in 1974 in Buenos Aires, Argentina to Italian immigrants. I was born with a rare genetic disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome kyphoscoliosis type, but it was not diagnosed until 2015. This illness caused me to have severe scoliosis kyphosis since the age of two. I am the youngest of eight children.  We were four girls and four boys.  My oldest sister died from Leukemia as a toddler.  I grew up with a very difficult father.  I realized years later that my father was always ashamed of me because of the way I looked. Growing up I was also bullied and teased by other kids due to my very prominent rib hump.  Having many surgeries and wearing orthopedic braces wasn’t easy! 

I began wearing orthopedic braces and body casts from the age 2 to the age of 11 and then again as an adult.  I had my first open back surgery at 10 years old.  My spine was collapsing so fast I was having trouble breathing.  The doctors explained to us that I needed emergency open back surgery  because my ribs were collapsing on my lungs making it difficult to breathe.  I had a curve of 89 degrees and another curve of 56 degrees. Doctors explained to us that I have a deadly type of kyphoscoliosis and without surgery I would die.  I had surgery and had a rod put in to stop my spine from curving any further. 

Unfortunately I had complications.  A few days after being sent home from the hospital I developed a very high fever.  I went to see the doctor and he discovered I had a massive infection from the surgery. I almost died from this infection which left me hospitalized for three months.  Fortunately the infection finally healed but over time the rod that was put in as a child began giving me problems.  By the time I was 18 the rod had somehow moved out of place and doctors think it was causing my migraine headaches.  I finally had to go for another surgery to remove part of the rod.  My migraine headaches finally went away. However I struggled with my severe and painful rib hump and was always fearful that I would never find anyone because of the way I looked.

In 1996 I was accepted to go to school at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City to study textile design.  I graduated in 2000 with a grade point average of 3.8.  My art teacher Susan Rietman who I am very close to always supported me in my work and motivated me to believe in myself.  Shortly after I graduated I met someone and got married but, sadly found myself in an abusive relationship.  After I separated from my abusive husband I was diagnosed with endometriosis. I had five abdominal surgeries for this illness which resulted in more complications.  It was a very painful illness to endure.   During this time I had a dream of God telling me that I would go through many difficulties but I wouldn’t die and He would always be with me. In late 2004 I had a surgery to correct my prominent rib hump but it was unsuccessful and caused my spine to collapse at a fast rate.  I have a very rare and aggressive type of kyphoscoliosis. The doctors told me they couldn’t help and that I would end up in a wheelchair and then die. I remained bedridden and highly medicated to stay alive.  By 2006 I had a side curve of 115 degrees and a concave curve of 120 degrees.  I felt hopeless and very scared. No doctor would touch me because my condition was so severe and complex and I only had State insurance which doesn’t cover a $500,000 plus surgery.

One night I had a dream of a white light-filled Being who put His hand through me and straighten my spine.  Afterwards in my dream I stood up and walked away.  Two weeks later I found the doctor who saved my life. My oldest sister Ana took me to Texas where this doctor was able to correct my collapsed spine and rib hump. I have two rods and 26 screws holding my spine and had nine ribs cut and reduced in size to minimize the rib hump.  I grew five inches from the surgery.  This was a miracle for me.  The success of my operation was called a miracle by Dr. Shelekov and his entire team who preformed the operation. I am forever grateful for what he did for me. Unfortunately he passed away two years later.

After the spinal surgery I was doing so well that I was able to take a trip to Argentina to see my parents.  I especially wanted to see my mother who hadn’t believed I was well.  Unfortunately a couple of years after my surgery I started to suffer from severe depression and anxiety.   I had never felt this way before.  The doctors eventually  discovered I had ovarian failure and was going into early menopause. There were no medications I could tolerate due to the many side effects and sensitivities I have.  At this point I was 33 years old.  I was living in my brother’s basement at this time and my unmedicated depression and anxiety got so bad that I spent four years feeling hopeless and bed ridden. The one person who gave me hope was Father Frank who visited me.   In 2013 I went to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota where they discovered I had pelvic floor muscle dysfunction which added to my IBS making it hard to go to the bathroom.  

Amidst of all this suffering one day in 2013 I got a letter in the mail saying I was next on the list to rent a small apartment for people with disabilities in Stamford, CT.  The news made me so happy because I had waited for eight years for this opportunity, but at the same time I was scared due to my many health issues.  By October of 2014 I was so ill that I wasn’t able to drink or eat and weighed only 92 pounds. I remember calling my college professor Susan Rietman who advised me to come to Mount Sinai where they were able to find a treatment that I could tolerate.  Another miracle. I spent my 40th birthday in Mount Sinai hospital.  At this time I was praying to God and I promised Him if He saved my life once again I would start drawing and painting since art was always something I wanted to do.  After a few weeks I began feeling better but just a few days after being discharged from the hospital I came down with a pulmonary embolism and once again landed in the hospital.  Doctors warned me if the blood thinners didn’t work I could die. I was petrified but I kept thinking about my dream with God and somehow I knew I was going to be okay.   

A year before when I watched a movie called Heaven is For Real I was introduced to the artist Akiane Kramarik’s life and work.  This child prodigy inspired me to do art, especially to paint.  Her story about meeting God helped me to see and believe that my dreams where for real.  

As soon as I was better a close friend of mine David Anderson helped financially to buy art supplies to start my art.  He always believed in me even when I doubted.  I began to teach myself how to draw and paint. I am mostly self taught in fine arts. I should mention that for me learning is a true challenge because I have Attention Deficit Disorder and Retention Deficit Disorder, two challenging learning disabilities. I’ve discovered that I am able to learn best hands on.  So for the past four years I’ve been drawing and painting in different mediums such as gouache, dyes, watercolors, color pencil, graphite, acrylics, oils and pastels. Because of my disabilities and limitations I work a lot from photographs. 

I started doing portraits after I began volunteering in a daycare doing arts and crafts with children once a week. They inspire me to draw and paint them.  I also draw and paint animals.  I also love to paint animals, including people’s pets.  I work with a lot of details so my work looks highly realistic. I have a true passion for what I do. I have entered over 10 juried exhibits where my work was accepted in all the shows. In January of 2017 I won third place at the Stamford Art Association.  I entered the very first portrait I ever did which was of my mother, who sadly I’m losing to Alzheimer’s disease.  Winning with the portrait of my mother meant so much to me.  I went on to win first place with the portrait of Jaden in graphite at the Rowayton Art center. And I won third place with a graphite portrait of Melissa. My accomplishments have made me work ever harder.  My story was published in a Spanish newspaper called La Voz and most recently it was published in English and Spanish in a magazine called Latin Colors..  You can go to the following link,‭Carina Imbrogno, Artist and ‬Champion of Life – Liber-Art. 

I’m very grateful for the connections I’ve made through Instagram.  I got very inspired by a friend on Instagram by the name of Richard Macwee who is based in Scotland and is an amazing wildlife artist.  His work inspired me to continue drawing animals. I also feel very grateful and blessed to have migrated with my famliy to the USA where my life has been saved so many times.  My goal is to eventually teach what I know and to keep getting better and better at what I do.  I am open to trying different techniques. I have my studio is my small living room but I hope to one day have a studio away from my apartment.

I dreamed on 4-6-18 that I received a phone call from a man who said his name was LEM. A lot was going on around me and I couldn’t hear well. I said, “Do we know each other?” I was never able to hear him except a few phrases mixed with static, words like: “all over the earth”. I kept struggling to hear. The last thing he said before I woke up was: “The Story is Your Story” or either “Your Story is THE Story”.
(I had asked God to give me a dream before I went to bed that night. I had heard of Lou Engle back when my daughter was at IHOP in KC, so he was on my radar, but “LEM” didn’t ring a bell so I didn’t put that together until November-ish, 2018, when he sent out an email announcing the new name of the ministry as LEM.
Immediately, I went back and looked up the dream and realized it was about Lou Engle calling me.
In the email or on his website, he described a time away with God where he was commissioned to start LEM and the Send. I looked at the date he described of Easter weekend, and it was that weekend before my original dream on 04-06-19. Wow!!
I then attended SEND in Orlando on 2-22-19.

Moro no Brasil e no mês passado dia 18/08/19 Sr. Lou veio até são Paulo na igreja monte Sião da família de Teo hayashi , eu ouvia e acompanhava o Sr. Lou pela internet e quando ele veio eu e minha família fomos até são Paulo (Sou do interior) para o culto.
Quando o Sr. Lou em oração liberou a unção para que pessoas que estavam ali pudessem jejuar e orar eu recebi essa unção e entendi que era direção do Senhor para minha vida começar o jejum de 40 dias.
E foi o que fiz e para glória de Deus amanhã completam os 40 dias e posso dizer que nesses dias foram intensos de muito aprendizado, muita batalha no Espírito mas a Vitória certa em todos os momentos. Agradeço a vida e entrega do Sr. Lou pois através dele recebi a unção para jejuar é quando no culto ele contou sobre o livro com seu nome escrito avivamento eu entendi um sonho que o Senhor me deu há 10 anos atrás. Nele havia um livro capa preta escrito HOLY santo em inglês e quando eu abria estava escrito em português e a palavra que tinha dentro desse livro era
Lâmpada para os meus pés é a tua palavra e luz para meu caminho.

Não conhecia a bíblia na época mas quando descobri onde estava esse versículo a vida ganhou sentido.
Entendi que Deus me chamou a ser holy consagrada dedicada a ELE e foi através do testemunho do Sr. Lou que obtive a força para tal.
Agradeço imensamente de todo coração e que Deus abençoe

I had a dream of a stream of water with the words “Lou Engle” floating in it. The words were white. I then looked up Lou on the internet and began the 40 day fast. I want to say so much about what God has done for me in these 40 days. It’s been such an amazing blessing to join what God is doing. So much clarity has been given, purpose, strategy, revelation. And the time is now to evangelize the gospel. Not by might but by his spirit. I really have a deep appreciation for what God is doing through Lou. I love Lou even though I haven’t met him. The trajectory of my life has been forever changed and I am so grateful. I am so grateful to God. He is doing a mighty move in America and beyond. He is coming back for a bride that is near him, that loves him, and wants nothing but him. Ekballo! I love you Lou Engle and team I pray grace for you to sustain what God has given you. Stay in the shadow of the Almighty. Praise the Lord. Praise God!

Karina

Blessings Lou Engle!
First of all I want to thank you for your life and ministry. Thank you for doing this blog to connect with us and be all together in this fast while seeking The Father’s face and heart for this time. Knowing that others were fasting as well, brought me strength and comfort. I am too going to keep fasting as I didn’t receive the it’s time now to stop yet. I am seeking for more revelation and strategies as I also believe this 2020 is vital for the opening of new doors not only in USA but in Europe and South America. I just came from Buenos Aires Argentina at my former church and we all leaders even from Brazil and Peru , can see a huge wave of The Glory Fire coming. The same now in Europe and in USA. Most of my fast I have received a fresh awakening of the intercesor in me. For that I am so blessed and thankful! I know there’s more digging in the Spirit to do, so I will keep seeking. Thank you again for setting the example and gathering us all. Please consider continuing writing the blogs. I honestly look forward to it every day! Such a blessing! Thank you so much! Blessings! 🙏🔥🕊🌎🔥🙌

During The Send, I agreed to do a 40 day fast. This was my first extended fast so I didn’t quite know what to expect. Ultimately, I prayed that God would send more laborers into the harvest and I also prayed for my family and friends.

Shortly after I completed the fast, my Mom took a plane to visit me. Now I must make mention here that she has had food allergies to dairy since I can remember and could not eat any dairy without being in pain.

On the day she arrived, my Mom told me excitedly that she didn’t know what happened but about two weeks ago, she accidentally ate cheese and had absolutely no side effects at all! (She actually had people mess up food orders multiple times and put cheese in her food. Regardless, she had no pain or digestive issues).

I took out my phone and calculated the time. It had been exactly two weeks and two days since the fast ended.

I was and am now a more firm believer in prayer and fasting and will be doing it more often. Thank you Jesus for healing my Mom!!!

Dear Lou ,

The 40 day fast was definitely intense valleys, surrendering my flesh, submitting to God, heavenly moments and wisdom !!
I am 52 and felt called to missions since 18 years old . I’ve been on four life changing short term trips and always wanted to do more. There was always a “but God “ in the way of why I couldn’t do it.
A couple years ago I kept hearing YWAM in my spirit . I checked out there base and got Loren Cunningham’s book Is That Really You God. Every time I read it I closed it because it spoke to me. A year ago after a walk to Emmaus retreat I keep hearing “GO!”
I attended the Orlando SEND , gave God my feet !!!, committed to the fast, applied to YWAM and now enrolled for DTS in June !!
I don’t know what’s next, but I’m stepping out in faith with simple obedience . I am excited and uncertain and I know I can trust God no matter what!!

Thank you for all the fasting writings!! Powerful !!

God is so awesome!!

If there is anything, you must know about me is that I come from a Muslim Household. It wasn’t until I was 15 and then 18 when Jesus started reaching out to me. At first, I was like “why of all people would God choose a kid who is Muslim”? But time went by and have come to the realization that we are ALL God’s children. It doesn’t matter where we come from. He loves us all very dearly. And that he has plans for all of us. I was still afraid of what my father would think when he finds out I’ve converted over to Christianity. But I have to tell you that ever since doing the Jesus Fast. It has helped me in learning to have more Faith than ever. Even in very rough circumstances. And with the great values what God has given me and of the love and light he has put in my heart. I’m no longer to worry very much because God is always with us.

Ronald Holley

I did not make it through the whole fast but in the first couple of weeks, I had dreams of healing!

Cindy

God be glorified! At the end of the Jesus Fast, He delivered me from addiction to narcotics. One week drug-free today! Praise His holy name!

Alyona

God is saving my coworkers from different backgrounds and religions!

My testimony begins before the fast and during the Send. By divine arrangement, even though I was not able to physically be in Orlando, I was able to seclude myself in a room to watch the Send livestream for 12 hours. As it was unfolding, I knew it was something very important that God would use in my region. The next day, Sunday, during worship at my church, the Holy Spirit came upon me heavily and gave me a strategy to reach my city – replicate the Send here. To take the model of gathering a large group of believers and sending them into the five mission fields. That Monday, I shared this with my pastor and we’ve been moving forward with this ever since. The details are coming together in wonderful ways! I started the fast on March 1 and have felt led to extend it with Lou Engle because God had been speaking and showing me such great things!

During those first 40 days, I had a national speaker who I just met who asked me out of the blue if I was at the Send, talked about Lou Engle (they know each other) and told me to get it going in my city. I had a friend tell me she woke up one morning with two words – (my ministry) and Lou Engle and asked if I thought we should bring Lou Engle here. I have only told a few people about this assignment from God and neither of these people knew what God had already put in my heart. They were confirmations to me. I have a desire for a House of Prayer to be started in my city that would be a big part of birthing the big event that we’ll probably do next year. Another day, I asked myself, who is doing what I want to do? The answer came to me, Lou Engle. I do not follow Lou Engle or know much about him, but I was at the Call Detroit in 2011 and I know Lou gathers Christians to pray and fast for revival. That is my heart also. Another idea dropped into my spirit to gather local ministry leaders for a luncheon just for fellowship. From pondering the word “Ekballo”, we came up with a name for the Send event here, which is a synonym for Send. I had a divine encounter with someone who turned me on to Curry Blake. I’ve been praying for my son and his wife to fall more in love with God, and she just told me they are becoming more active in their church. It’s a start. During the fast I’ve read, reread and am reading: Revival Starts Here, Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough, and Azusa Street. I’ve been following Lou’s daily emails which have been encouraging and I am so thankful that God cleared my schedule and allowed me to watch all of the Send from home. My life will never be the same and neither will the believers in my region because by God’s grace, we will be replicating the Send here next year!!

I would love for Lou Engle to read this testimony. And I would love for him to come and be a part of the Send gathering here!

Jessica Coombs

Hey Lou! So this particular testimony started almost 4 years ago. But firstly, God has built my heart to love North Dakota since I was 12; that’s also when I was going through depression, self-harm, and in my freshman year, 3 suicide attempts. In the 3 years, I struggled, I had the same youth leader and she was the only adult who knew about my struggles. She covered me in prayer all those years and because of her obedience and God’s claim on my heart, I did not succeed in my attempts. The last half of high school was spent learning how Papa sees and loves me. I knew I wanted to be a servant like her. Who knows how her heart groaned for me and how glad it made Papa’s heart that she loved like that. I knew I wanted that level of intimacy with God, that I could pray and love and support the hearts of broken kids. How could I not after witnessing the power of her warfare for me?
Harvey is plagued with the strongmen of religion and suicide that specifically targets the youth. It has been that way since the earliest summer I can remember. Well, after I graduated high school, I wanted to take a year off to make a decision for college. Before I left Florida, I went to a conference put on by The International House of Prayer. During a time of intercession, God immediately told me to intercede for Harvey, ND. He said, “I will come like a deluge. Because they are my children and I love them.” I knew then that I would be there for longer than a year. Fast forward a year after moving and working at the local hospital as a CNA, it became clear to me that Papa was keeping me from seeing death and even being around it. My friends told me to ask God, so I did, and I was led to Numbers 6. The Nazirite vow was not something I remembered learning about or even paying attention to, but my eye was immediately caught by them not being allowed to be around death. Well, I took all of it literally, which wasn’t hard, until a few months later when I found my first dead patient. Then I had to chop my hair anyway because of scalp psoriasis. After that, I never heard anything else about it from God. And I had absolutely forgotten about it until I saw the chapter named Nazirite DNA.
Lou, let. Me. Tell. You.
I was absolutely shook.
Completely wrecked and exhilarated like the best Christmas morning surprise puppy times 10.
I read and reread that chapter and was so moved and encouraged. It literally opened up a new realization of my identity in Christ. This fast of mine was not perfect like I wanted it to be, I failed more than once. But your encouragements helped me seek God further when I did fail. I hope I can maintain this spirit of fasting even though it is challenging. But I welcome the challenges because I know my security doesn’t come from myself. I’m ready to embrace my Nazirite calling.

Esther

I was specifically praying for wisdom and direction over this fast for the next season of my life. Not only did God make it abundantly clear, but he also spoke prophetically and through dreams related to my calling to Brazil and Canada. Much much happened but one of the things that struck me the most was that I had been working on releasing an album for almost a year and I finally released my first song. Only later did I realize I released it on the 40th day of my fast! As Jesus’ fast propelled him into his calling, I believe this fast propelled me into mine and released God’s song through me!

Haley

I just wanted to share with you that this fast was an amazing experience and I am so very thankful for Lou, and this fast. It was the longest fast I’ve ever done and it was the most disciplined fast I’ve ever done. The end because pretty tough and at one point painful, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I see with so much clarity now. God has been moving mountains and His beauty is everywhere. When I got back from the Send I quit my job because I did not like it and the Lord gave me the grace to do it. Then, He blessed me with a great position at Daystar and then I was promoted there after a week and a half. My job is such a blessing and it’s funny because I cook in the cafe and I wasn’t able to try any of the food, just cooked it and hoped they liked it. Lol I also went to a worship night at my church and I received 5 prophetic words that are so spot on in my life. Not only that but the whole time I was at the Send the Lord was really speaking to me about His grace being sufficient. All I had to do was trust Him with everything and that’s exactly what I did and He blessed me beyond measure. I started noticing people around me who’s faith was growing and their relationship with the Lord was increasing. I can’t help but think it’s because of everyone that partnered in this fast and prayed for an Ekballo of laborers into the harvest field. I dreamed more than I’ve ever dreamed and the Lord is speaking to me about adoption and children’s ministry. I feel so refreshed and awakened. I feel like my next mission trip is so close I can taste it, I’m just waiting on the Lord. This fast was so special to me and I’m just extremely thankful for the opportunity. God bless!

Steve

Nothing dramatically changed that I took notice to, but what I did realize is how night and day difference I am when I took the time to fast for 2 weeks and focus solely on God through prayer l, the word, and fasting, compared to how I am when my focus is on the worlds distractions. I didn’t do what I set out to do in completing the 40 day fast, but a hunger for the more has been birthed in my heart that I can’t shake.

Hi Lou,

I am from Jamaica and the first time I saw you (virtually) was Jesus ’18. I was so stirred as I listened and watched you. I was amazed that there was someone that has devoted themselves to intercession and the mission and vision you articulated was so in-keeping with what I have been carrying. I had to join the SEND! I watched online and pledged to join the Jesus Fast; I had to start one week later (so Monday April 15 will be my 40th day). The devotionals were so encouraging and gave clear directives on how to pray. I have joined everyone doing the Jesus Fast in asking God to hurl forth laborers into the harvest beginning with me and my family!

God answered! He opened a door for my husband as he was asked to take up pastoral duties next month in one of the most volatile communities in our country! God is sending us to His friends; the forsaken and neglected to tell them that He cares and loves them! How amazing is this!

The objective of Treading Times is so relevant and has set a pattern for us to follow. As we prepare to go and get settled in, we will be treading on every road and adjoining communities to claim that which belong to our Father.

Blessing to you Lou and the team and I am truly inspired and blessed by your ministry. I am even paying more attention to my dreams (though I don’t always understand what they mean :-))

Patricia Moulton

Not having done a 40-day fast for more than 5 years I felt at age 72 I could not do it. Reluctantly and skeptically I agreed to do it. Previously I did juice fasts so I thought that is what I would do but it didn’t feel right. I thought it was cold soup may be a good alternative. I made onion soup. Next onion and cabbage each one was pureed. I had always said juice fast if easier than eating less but God showed me I could eat less on a fast. I was also taking a webinar class Experiencing the Courts of Heaven and got a huge breakthrough as a deep generational sin that existed in me was confessed. My assurance was that I started dreaming which was not common for me. I believe this could not have happened without the fast. Then at the end of the fast I was asked to go to Washington DC to repent with others in the court of heaven for Minnesota’s part in abortion which is HUGE in June this year.

I have not been on an extended fast since 2007 (for almost 4 mos) prior to The Call Nashville and it was a strict Daniel fast (vegetables, legumes, water). I also fasted all social media and entertainment and of wearing jewelry, Looking back I believe I was very legalistic about it and there was little joy until the actual day of the call in Nashville. As a consequence I would literally shudder (and internally shake) at the thought of entering another fast. The spirit of God never called me into another one either until I heard about the Jesus Fast and this one grabbed me and has been a delight for me! It’s been full of grace, felt full of ease and freedom. I have had greater personal breakthroughs and deeper encounters with Jesus. I now hunger for more for me and for others. I also recently heard in my spirit that I was being called to a life of fasting and prayer; that truly His burden is easy and His yoke is light! Then, I read of your call to embark on another season of fasting for our Jewish brethren and I believe I’m in .

I heard God calling me into a fast months before God sent out, into the world, the invitation for the “Jesus Fast” .
Pray excites me…prayer touches deep places in my spirit….I LOVE TO PRAY…I LIVE TO PRAY…BUT I PRAY AND AM CONNECTED TO ETERNITY .

I have walked 46 years reconciled to The Creator … The Eternal One because of the selflessness sacrifice of JESUS the Son of God …I have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit….Yet I have never successfully fasted for even a day …. UNTIL NOW
I came to “The Send” thinking I was to old for such an event… that it’s audience would be for younger than my children….but my hunger for more of God was greater than the lie “maybe I’m attending the wrong gathering.” …

If God’s Manifest Presence was going to be at Camping World Stadium THEN SO WAS I!

Now 40 amazing days later This temple in which the Holy Spirit dwells, that I call my body, looks very different to every person, both saved and lost, who knew me a short 40 days ago… there has been a Devine physical transformation of my body in the natural realm… and if things that happen in the natural realm mirror what has happen in the spiritual … I say “Oh, Happy Day” how different my spirit man must now look in the spiritual realm

I, like Lou, know that God has not released me from the “Jesus Fast”….so Lou I stand with you in continuing to fast

What has changed in me to this point as a participant of the “Jesus Fast”?

EVERYTHING!
And God’s not finished His good work in me yet…

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
God “EKBALLO” ME!
In Jesus Name I ask and pray Amen

Raquel

This fast has completely changed my world and spiritual life. I started the fast with a craving for more of God, a sense of desperation to see God do something NEW. I began praying with an authority I didn’t have in the past. I felt God was truly listening to my prayers and like he was writing them down. I had INCREDIBLE encounters and moments of worship in my room where I truly felt God was next to me. I had moments where I had full on dialogue with the Lord as I just sat on the floor of my bedroom asking him questions and hearing his answers. As I would go about my day I was see go through the day. As I would go to a church service I felt my worship had grown because my closeness to Jesus had grown. I truly have felt that God has walked with me throughout this fast. I’ve also been so blessed by all the devotionals and resources that have been shared through the fast. I’ve been so encouraged in knowing that thousands of us were fasting for one purpose. I’m sad because the fast is over but I know that this closeness with the Lord and this passion can be carried over and this can be my daily living! Thanks to all for putting this fast together SO excited for what is to come! God will continue to blow our minds.

(Condensed) 0n July 7th of 2007 I surrendered to Christ as a successful gay business owner in Jacksonville Fl. Raised in a Christian home, but molested and deceived, I ran from the knowledge of God for 10 years. On that night I was laying in bed with my “husband” and another lover, with money in the bank, local celebrity, and a successful business. I had Everything I thought I wanted but was empty and miserable with no peace or joy. That night I got up from bed, went downstairs, and wrestled with God as to why I couldn’t leave my business, identity, and life to follow Him. I had chosen to serve self, knowing what Gods word said, and even ignoring the logic of species procreation. The scripture instilled in me by my God-fearing parents is what Holy Spirit used to convict me. Every excuse my wicked heart could conceive as to why I couldn’t surrender was refuted with scripture. “What shall it profit a man if he gains the world and loses his soul”? “Whosever will come with me, must deny himself, take up his cross and follow me.” “There is a way that seemeth right unto man, but the end thereof is destruction” “choose you this day whom you will serve”
That night I confessed my sins, slept on the couch, and left in the morning. Today I live in LA, working as an Art Director, serving at a church plant in Burbank, but travel to sing in a gospel quartet, and act in Christian Theatre. (Currently Caiaphas at FBCJAX Passion Play) I just found out that my friend Eric Snow was a part of your prayer event on 7/7/07 praying for individuals trapped in the homosexual lifestyle. I am the (a) fruit of that night. Thank you!

Michelle

Dear Lou ,
I woke up this morning and said to myself -“i am really going to miss Lou’s devotions – maybe he will send one now and then !” I was so happy to read that you would continue as the Holy Spirit leads ! Your emails encourage focus and targets which are needed in this loud world we live in ! I am still longing for answers and His Glory to touch me . To know my purpose and calling . But as i wait on Him i will praise Him !
Thank you for all of your encouragement and leadership!

During this Fast I got off Facebook. I have not missed it I chose to not be on negative news. During this time God moved me into a house in a small town and I do not have any TV cable. I have access to Internet and choose to listen to Christian music and watch YouTube and my emails. I spend a lot of time now at the lake with God in me and waiting on his next move. This coming weekend I will be teaching at a Kairos weekend retreat for women and God has prepared me with the messages. Thank you so much for this opportunity and I look forward to keeping up with your blogs.

Erin

From the beginning of the 40 day fast it has been a mental and physical battle. But at every turn (every 10 days) the Father has been so generous with his encouragement and his love toward me! After the first quarter of the fast on day 10 my son had a vision of revival and a friends son who is 7 had a dream about me that was deeply meaningful! Halfway through the fast on day 20 the dream from the 7 year old friend about me was physically manifested and I for the first time was given the opportunity to prophesy to our church of thousands a word about RAINS OF REVIVAL! On day 30 (3/4 of the way through) God so graciously gave my son yet another vision!! This time he saw a pump track for bikes which for our family represents as vision and a promise from God and on the pump track he saw the words “quarter mile”! As soon as my son told me what he saw it I knew that the Father was speaking to me, “you have a quarter mile left!!! Go the distance!!! The promises, the vision, the hope is all still there press forward don’t give up now!” I cannot tell you how deeply personal all of this is that God would use my own son to bring his love and encouragement to me!!! Our ministry and our heart is to raise up a generation who hears and sees God and is mobilize in their faith!!! So for the Lord to use my son and a 7 year old friend To bring his words, his love and encouragement to me I’m just blown away by our God!!! God is raising up a generation that is powerful and mighty and hears his voice !! He is pouring out his Spirit on all people young and old!! Your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams ! It’s happening! Thank you so much for leading us all on this incredible experience of drawing closer to the Lord and interceding for REVIVAL! It’s the cry of or heart! ♥️

Nicole

Over the last 40 days I have both failed miserably and had encounters with the Lord in ways I never have before. On April 1 I committed to fast till April 30 because I felt The Lord leading me to. This morning as I was Praying Jesus showed me through His eyes what He sees. The rest of this day I have been completely overwhelmed by His presence like I never Have before. I will continue fasting and praying for America, for the lost, for our babies, for the orphans, for my City of Albuquerque and for Jesus to get His full reward!!

Nico

Hey Lou! Thank you so much for being diligent and believing in my generation! This fast has been so wonderful, as I was able to draw so much nearer to Him than I’ve been able before. Thank you for setting the stage having your ceiling be our floor!

Reading the blog everyday and believing with you for a shift in America and the nations of the earth was so encouraging and life giving!
It was so helpful to hear and understand your story, because it truly brought courage to my life! I’m bummed the 40 days are over, I will for sure, keep reading the blogs and set time aside weekly to fast certain meals.
Jesus is just too precious not to do that! I’m leaving this fast with a greater hunger to see Him and a longing in my heart to know Him more intimately, like Jesus prays in John 17.
I also declare that over you Lou! The Lord will reward years of crying out, and it will be above and beyond you can ever ask or imagine! You will be so blown away by the waves of young people entering into missions worldwide because of prayers you prayed! Thank you, because your prayer probably ekballoed me into the missions field!

Bless you and your team!

Nate

Good afternoon,

My name is Nate from the little town of Ozark Alabama. This fast has truly been nothing short of amazing. The Holy Spirit came to me in a dream and woke me from a deep sleep. This dream showed me I would be receiving my anointing but I had no idea what it meant. Shortly after this dream I was told about The Send the day before it started and I was excited but was unable to attend The Send. Thankfully I was able to live stream from my truck as I worked. The Holy Spirit filled me as I watched and moved me in a way I will never forget. The next day, I received prayer and the Holy Spirit filled me and I collapsed and in This moment He began to show me fire falling from heaven. This would began what I didn’t know would soon become my prayer for the next month. I joined the fast to seek God and what he meant by fire falling. God sent His Holy Spirit to give me a vision. He showed me a stadium full of people with lots of birds flying around. Some black some white. In the vision I am standing in front of the stadium and I began to reach out and and pray. Fire fell down from heaven. Such a pure clean fire fills the stadium. The stadium has an opposing fire who tries to over power the fire from heaven. The pure fire washes out these different black and white birds. Then a nasty looking hand rises up a grabs a white bird. As the white bird struggles and tries to fly away, A knight on a horse comes in (who is shining brighter than any thing other) in all white comes in with a sword and cuts the hand off releasing the white bird and the bird flies off. I have had many breakthroughs during this fast for the things I have been praying for.
God has shown me its time for the prayer warriors to stand up and fight for His Glory. We must release our prayers for this revival. It is time we fill stadiums with people who are hurting and need to be filled. As we started the fast I really felt he mantle of Billy Graham being passed at The Send. I don’t know how, but I will go and through prayer, I will lead people who fill stadiums to freedom in the name of Jesus!

Marilyn

The Lord has made it clear to me that He has chosen me to GO and preach the Gospel to the lost in the USA and the state and city and neighborhoods where I live. Hallelujah

Linda

I have prayed for years that Jesus would teach me how to pray. My prayers have gotten deeper but I feel I’ve not even scratched the surface. Please pray with me that I would be willing to receive the full mantle of prayer that God has for me!

Deb

This was my first 40 day fast. I was a Daniel Faster and my woman’s bible study group is studying Daniel…I love how God works…the bible study started months before The Send!!! I have felt the presence of God and been uplifted in so many ways. My Ekballo prayers have been particularly for my husband’s and three daughter’s personal relationships with the Lord. I have seen God move. I had a dream about my husband that affirmed he will be saved and on March 31st, during my early morning prayer time, I had a vision in which I saw the heavens open up, clean white light pouring out like rays of sunshine, and millions of heaven hosts descending….glory, glory, glory!!! I have never experienced dreams or visions like this before. I praise God for the journey He has taken me on…what a blessing to be a part of this Fast. Your blogs have been so encouraging, challenging, and Spirit-filled…God is so good!!! Thank you, Lou, for being God’s servant!!! Praise Him for all He is going to do!!! Exciting times are ahead!!! What a blessing to be a part of it. I look forward to receiving your blogs. Ekballo!!!

Brenda

This was a very different kind of fast for me. Each day I would ask how long am I to fast, each day I would hear today. On some days I would hear eat this today, at first I responded no I am fasting. I finally listened there was no shame or condemnation. This continued throughout the 40 days. I have been freed from my way of thinking about a right way and wrong way to fast. Each day I depended on him it became so freeing. I feel I have receive spiritual break through for myself, I see Abba as a loving , caring father . Who I can trust. I have learned a deeper meaning of obedience and received so much joy and a deeper love for those who are lost and don’t know the love of the Father. Thank you for your obedience!

Donna

I’m so thankful for the grace of this fast, and I see major shifts happening in my life and family. It’s not “looked” like I expected, like a serious fast I had in 2013. This one, the Lord is showing me how His yoke is easy and burden light – not about performance but being. The breakthroughs I am having, are, release of perfectionism, which is affecting my physical being – down two sizes. People pleasing fears, lifting, and destiny becoming clearer and clearer. The family is listening to counsel that I give, miraculous, and seeing breakthroughs happening in their life. Dealing with the core of my being on “codependent” issues, where shame is turning to double honor, boundaries being set, finding my voice, & “knowing” who I AM!!! Deliverance from eating disorder is happening naturally – as He led me to do deep personal work these many years, it’s all culminating together for MY GOOD! Truly ~ I feel and know love for myself, and loving others as I love me. Learning to operate from Abundance – not poverty lack, even in my own identity!!! One cannot give of what one does not have or have experienced!!!! THANKFUL and committed to continue for the year as Spirit leads… Donna

CLARE

I attend MPN Milano, Italy and just last Sunday we received a prophetic word, a man who knew nothing about our church told us the street address and said that it was on God’s heart and it will be known throughout the world just like the address of Asuza street for the revival that will take place here…praise God…I moved here 20 years ago from Ireland because God had given me a picture of the main square where I live, PAVIA, crowded with worshipers. Many times I have been tempted to go back to Ireland but I made a promise to God that until I see that vision fulfilled, i would stay. I believe that we are entering the beginning of this revival as our church is experiencing a visitation from the Holy Spirit weekly and lives are being changed. I praise God and I know this is connected with the world-wide church fasting, praying with passion for souls and begging God to hurl out workers into the harvest. Thank you, each and every one of you for your obedience and faithfulness to God.

My family and I had decided not to go back to the Dominican Republic this summer on a week-long mission. The cost was a lot for the effectiveness of what 3 of us could do, and I had also decided that being a nurse, I wanted my next mission to be medical. While I was at the Send, I kept thinking that out-of-the-country missions was NOT for me. I have been organizing a street ministry here at home and helping with another community outreach to low-income areas here in Georgia which sometimes feel like being in a developing country. I saw my need here. However, for some unknown reason, I have experienced a bit of general dissatisfaction. I still didn’t think I was being called to do any additional mission. I have been fasting all along with you, reading my Bible and praying.

While in Orlando for the Send, we prayed for three hours in a restaurant with two precious friends we had only just met who were also attending the Send the next day. When we were ready to leave, we asked the workers behind the counter if we could pray for them. One defensively answered that they did not need prayer, bc they pray 5 times daily. They were Muslims from Morocco and had watched us pray together, out loud, and with their customers for the last three hours!!!!! One complimented us on the good we were doing. We had no idea!

Two weeks ago I got a call from a friend and long-term missionary. She asked me to join her on a 9 day trip to Ghana running medical clinics. Some of what we will do will be directly with the Muslim demographic.

Every door has flung wide open for me and I have not had a stumbling block about getting off work, family obligations, etc. I am going to Africa this summer for my first time ever.

Getting to do all Of this is God giving me the secret desire of my heart at a time I did absolutely not foresee. I am tearing up writing these words. God bless all of your efforts and PRAISE GOD. I am among those being sent now, although I did not believe that would be my calling in 2019.

Ryan and Randi F.

My husband Ryan did the 40 days fast. I (Randi) am currently about 11 weeks pregnant. On day 28 of the fast, we found out that the baby I am carrying has stopped growing at 6 weeks gestation and has never developed a heartbeat. I have not miscarried though and remain with the baby in my womb. As we looked at the dates, 6 weeks was the exact beginning of the fast. We are contending for life over this child, and believing God to raise it to life, start its heart beating and resume growing! We have had 2 ultrasounds, and I wait to see a Dr to tell me what they think I should do next. We are praying that medicine and science would bow to the name of Jesus. the fast is over now and we remain walking in this wilderness, contending for our deliverance into the promise that God has given us in this child. We know that in this process of contending for our child to come forth in the natural, God is also showing us that we are to contend for what he wants to grow and birth in the spirit over our city of Saskatoon, Canada. We fight for his promises, believing that he is faithful to fulfill them. We ask that anyone who reads this would join in crashing heaven for this mighty miracle. Father in heaven raises our baby to life in Jesus name. Make this heart begin to beat in Jesus name. Scatter our enemies and bring our promise to a thriving life. We call forth our child’s destiny and declare that it will not be stolen by the enemy. We’re thankful for every prayer that goes up.

Kim

This was my first 40 day fast. It was not easy but God met me in profound ways. I feel a greater sense of awareness of Him and the need to fast. Thank you, Lou for pointing us to the bigger picture and helping us find our spiritual compass through this journey. Your daily devotions challenged me and I am eternally grateful. I pray fresh fire over you and your whole team. This is a poem God gave me recently called “The Current”. It is about the prayer movement on the earth. God bless.
“The Current”
Living inside a current is a movement that demands no restraint. Pulling with such force. In its wake space and matter collide. Pushing the impossible.
The momentum never ceases. Giving way to new realms.
Living inside a current is a movement that changes the course of history. Sound and light recognize its impact. Moving with synchronized harmony through the corridors of time. Unstoppable. The current flows. Widening and deepening. It accesses difficult and dark spaces. Pulsing electrical shockwaves through time. Awakening history’s heart to its intended purpose.

Natalia Claussen

I am so happy to have joined my family in prayers. I began this fast with hope for the world but so many doubts about my own future and here I am now with so many answers and knowing that Jesus is guiding me all the way. During this fast Jesus changed the way I thought and gave me his mind, changed my heart and priorities and I believe much more is still in process. And I thank him for teaching and disciplining me. When I thought I wasn’t listening well what he called me to do and asked for help I opened a devotional with Lou praying for a Brazilian to be sent to the Middle East and that was exactly what I had been praying just minutes before I opened my email. That I would hear God’s voice telling me that I was on the right path, that I wasn’t going crazy for burning for a place I have never put my feet on. I thought Jesus had done plenty telling me that but he wanted to to make my faith grow as well so a week ago I went to a job interview thinking I was applying for a teacher’s position when He definitely surprised me giving me a coordinator’s job when I have never worked as one, the beautiful thing is that I was going through a hardcore time since I couldn’t support myself in Rio, but I stayed cause that’s where he asked me to be in order to learn and grow, and suddenly I have the means to stay until he says it’s time to go.

Debbie

I PRAISE GOD FOR THE SEND “JESUS MOVEMENT” IN MY CITY OF ORLANDO FLORIDA. THE 40 DAYS OF FASTING HAS BROUGHT REVIVAL AND A REFRESHING TO MY MIND, BODY, SOUL, AND SPIRIT. TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!

Cindi

This is not my first forty days fast but it has been significant in many ways. My husband and I are high school teachers in southern Utah on the Navajo Reservation. During this forty day fast, we’ve had several night visitors. On one occasion, I literally felt clawing across my back. We immediately went into worship and prayer! The democratic is trembling here and grasping to hold ground. We have been praying for sons and daughters in this region and have had some success but things are shifting and I know more are going to come to Christ soon. I bought a t-shirt at the Send that says, ask me for prayer and I wear it on Fridays. Four students have come to me for personal prayer! Finally, it is significant to note that my health and energy has been restored during this fast. I also have a strong sense from the Lord to continue fasting throughout this year. I’m being prompted to fast nine days at a time with a few days in between. I’m not certain why nine but I’m going to be faithful. I’m sure it has something to do with my Nazarite DNA. Thank you, Lou, for continuing your morning devotional.

Brian

The Lord has increased my sensitivity to His leading and His voice by the 40 day fast. He has used it to release more dreams from Him as well. The most special thing is, he has used it to help me love my wife and family better. Instead of me writing an impulsive text, I sense more nearly and clearly his leading on what not to write and what not to do but what’s okay to say. To love the love the Lord my God with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my mind and all my strength more and love my neighbor as myself more has been my prayer for quite sometime now and He has brought that breakthrough. Praise God! I continue to pray more for Israel, America and for this generation for revival and salvation. And I sense more authority and power and confidence He is answering my prayers according to His will. Glory to God! Amen and Amen! He truly loves us!!

Andrea Clough

I was laid off my job as a mental health therapist October 5, 2018 and was seeking the Lord to find out what was my next assignment. A recurring verse, “I know the plans I have for you…” followed me everywhere. During the fast the Lord revealed The Plan, which will require selling my home of 25 years and moving to Orlando. I am in the process of selling and know that my future and hope are “like the light of dawn that will get brighter and brighter until the full day.” Thank you for encouraging the experience – my first 40 day fast. Blessings.

AnaMaria

Today is the anniversary of Azusa Now, the day my husband, Joel, and I felt the invitation from the Lord, in that powerful gathering, to dedicate the rest of our lives to building a prayer movement from our corner of the world. We started Westlake International House of Prayer that summer and have been praying and fasting regularly since. I didn’t get to read your Day 39 blog until today, and I’m weeping as I read of your prompt to continue fasting and prayer, because I have feel that invitation also. God has used this current 40-day fast to remind me how much we want His revival and how much prayer is required. I can’t ignore the invitation, nor do I want to, even though today has been the toughest day of temptation with food – my husband bought a coconut cream pie and set it on the counter in preparation for tomorrow’s end of the fast! By God’s grace I too will press on to 2020. Thank you for your blog. It has been such an encouragement.

Matthew

Thank you so much Lou! I have been following your ministry for a while, and I have been so encouraged, but these daily devotionals during the 40 day fast have extremely encouraged and empowered me. I have been having dozens of dreams over these last forty days; that is something of a rarity in the past, and if I did have a dream it was usually one that I was relieved was not real life. But God has spoken to me so much in these days through that. Additionally, these devotionals have deeply challenged me to be all God has called me to be. That is a good thing! I am so so thankful! Praise God for your obedience and fatherly encouragement. It has changed my life. I believe God is calling me to pioneer some movements in abortion and revival, and your ministry has catalyzed boldness and urgency for this. We will contend until all the nations bow the knee in word and conduct to King Jesus.
Again thank you Lou!

Divine Encounters & A Monthly 24 Hours Worship Birthed

Couldn’t stop praising the LORD for what HE has done during this JESUS fast movement and more to come. Expectation of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit touched down all over America and into the world. Ekballo!

So thankful to JESUS for you Lou. For your faithfulness, willingness, and obedience.

Had an amazing time with God the Father the Son the Holy Spirit!
This is my first time participating a fast with thousands of JESUS lovers. Because your daily email of encouragement and focus prayer led us all in one accord one voice. No matter what time we pray, the Holy Spirit directs His Angelic Hosts to partner with us as we pray. HE keeps them so busy that our hearts move Heaven onto the Earth. Surely every one of us has special encounters with the Almighty!

On March 21, divine encounter came and experiences of Heavenly signs, a monthly 24 hours worship night being birthed in Wenatchee WA. Expectations of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit over Wenatchee and the surrounding towns that will shift the atmosphere and its culture; reformation will happen from true transformation and, wholeness comes in many forms. Restoration of communication and relationships happened today. For me and a sister in Christ. She and I made a plan to work on our differences so we may once again, become partners in Christ as the LORD has called me to move here in Wenatchee WA.
GOD Is Faithful and HE Is Worthy To Be Praise!

Thank you for the opportunity to share my story of JESUS. I have learned so much from you dear brother Lou and would love to continue to follow your blog.

With deep gratitude first to our Lord JESUS Christ and to you dear brother Lou.
Your sister,
MaryAnn Goon

Mary

Though this journey I have been challenged to reflect on my impact in family, community and nation. Thank you I will be continuing to fast/pray

Marcia

Love you, Papa Lou!!! LOVE YOU!!! On Thursday morning GOD gave me “the GOD of PEACE will crush satan under your feet”! On my way to work in Manhattan the bus I was on almost had an accident – we stopped so hard that people screamed. I was reading that verse as the bus shook. I felt the Lord show me that this word was from the Lord for me and my family, it is alive and active and kept us from that accident. That afternoon I get a call from the hospital, my father had a heart attack. I rushed home to find out he is alive by a miracle!! He went to the dr with some discomfort, as the nurse was performing the EKG he got a heart attack, an ambulance took him to hospital. I get a text about 15 minutes later, our next door neighbor who is a follower of Christ wrote: “I am with your father”. Again, I felt the Lord tell me this word from the morning “the G-D of PEACE will crush satan under your feet”. My daddy came home last night – He is alive!! I turn 40 this Friday, will be fasting till Ressurection Sunday! You’ve been a spiritual father to me since TheCall NYC in 2001. Love you, Papa Lou!! My two boys, my hubby and my parents all love you!!! I am honored to have read these daily blogs, they were fire inside of me, I will treasure them and have been rereading them. Hallelujah!! This word is for you too and all of our brothers and sisters who have joined in this fast “the GOD of PEACE will crush satan under your feet”!!

During church two weeks ago I felt God urging me to continue this fast until Easter. I have already mentally committed to this and now you issue a greater and exciting challenge even greater! I am so pleased you will continue this blog! God has spoken through it during my fasting and prayers. I have had more dreams than ever and old dreams that the meaning eluded me are now in clear view! One made no make sense until our “EKBALLO” prayers were hurled out!!!
I am excited to ride this wave until I know God places me on His shore.
Thank you for your commitment and your time to share in God’s great work. Not everyone called says “yes”. I’m so thankful you did!!!

Steve Batson

This fast has been amazing. I have received a spiritual dream about 75% of the nights, and a number of visions and prophetic words from the Lord, including direction for my business and personal life. I have looked forward to receiving your blog via email every day and have truly cherished it, so I am very excited to hear you plan to continue sending it on a semi-regular basis after the fast too. All of you at Lou Engle Ministries are extremely loved by many!!! Thank you for all you do!!! May God’s most beloved and wonderful blessings rest on you!!!

Sharon Hill

I have been so blessed on this fast, there hasn’t even been a desire for food. My soul has been sustained. I’m so excited about what the Lord has in store for San Diego. The Lord gave me a vision a few months ago about revival coming to San Diego and I was to help usher it in. So I thank you for mentioning the book you read. Please pray for me.
God Bless,
Elder Sharon Hill

Stephanie

God has set me free from bondage and healed me physically and helped me to forgive people I needed to.

Sam

I have been praying for one of my friends and their family and their dad is trying to quit smoking and he just got a job.

Ryan

I pray we continue with the daily message from Lou. His prophetic word can then be passed on to our intercessory prayer group and men’s fellowship. Frank Bartleman is one of many disciples of Christ to become Gods leaders in the Azusa St. revival. My prayer with fasting is this same mantle of revival in Monterey County. In these 40 days of prayer and fasting, personal calling is being confirmed along with certain financial provisions. Suggest a book, God, Gold & Glory, details on the mighty outpouring and Manifest Destiny for California, for our followers via Brother Falany.

Russel

Thank you Lou, My heart has been rekindled for God. Earlier this year the Lord told me to be concerned with souls this year. I filed that in my memory. February 14th came and on my way to work I heard about the gathering at Camping World Stadium. I told the leaders at my church and planned to attend. To my awe and delight Christians from around the world were there and my spirit was awakened afresh. I was the only one that showed up but I am glad for it. I did not want to go but I had committed myself to volunteer. I followed up with the 40 day fast and have experience spiritual warfare but the Lord was on my side. I vehemently prayed for an Azusa Street revival in my time many years ago…but now is my time. I am here and ready!

Richard

Going to the Send opened my heart. I am still trying to figure out my purpose of how I am to serve the lord. This was the first time I ever did a fast. I could not have gotten through it with out Lou’s daily message. This was also the first time I have ever study Gods word. I will continue to study and search for my purpose. God bless you Lou.

During the fast I started praying for about 200 people everyday that I wrote down in my journal; my family, DTS classmates and staff, and friends who God put on my heart. I was prompted by my brother to go to Verizon and cancel some tablets that we never used that were adding a good chunk of money to our bill. So I went to the store and while talking to the rep, he said I could upgrade my phone for $1.50 more a month. So I said yes and while we were transferring the data from old phone to the new, the rep asked me why my brother and I kept putting our phone lines on hold. I then explained that we’re missionaries through YWAM, and that he was doing a school in England (SBS) and that I was in Taiwan for part of my DTS. Through that I spoke with him for about an hour about the Gospel, Jesus’s love for him, and missions. When I was leaving the store, I asked to pray for him and he said yes so I got love on him like Jesus. He was promptly added to my list of people to pray for. Praise be to Jesus!

This fast has completely changed my world and spiritual life. I started the fast with a craving for more of God, a sense of desperation to see God do something NEW. I began praying with an authority I didn’t have in the past. I felt God was truly listening to my prayers and like he was writing them down. I had INCREDIBLE encounters and moments of worship in my room where I truly felt God was next to me. I had moments where I had full on dialogue with the Lord as I just sat on the floor of my bedroom asking him questions and hearing his answers. As I would go about my day I was see go through the day. As I would go to a church service I felt my worship had grown because my closeness to Jesus had grown. I truly have felt that God has walked with me throughout this fast. I’ve also been so blessed by all the devotionals and resources that have been shared through the fast. I’ve been so encouraged in knowing that thousands of us were fasting for one purpose. I’m sad because the fast is over but I know that this closeness with the Lord and this passion can be carried over and this can be my daily living! Thanks to all for putting this fast together SO excited for what is to come! God will continue to blow our minds.

In a word, this fast changed my life. Your blog helped every step of the way and so I will continue reading it. While I can’t say how it will affect revival and the sending of laborers, if what has happened in my personal life is any indication, I know I had an impact. I have had a flame ignited and a release of his gifts in corporate prayer meetings like I have not experienced in years. I have also been dreaming, seeing visions, and hearing His voice in the twilight hours like I haven’t had in years. I’m so excited and grateful to have a small part by joining in the Jesus Fast. P.S. Your book by the same name made an indelible mark on my life. Finally, I heard your call to the Messianic Jewish community last year at your Messiah ‘18. I fasted right after and I will continue to respond as God has set my heart years ago to pray for Jewish revival. During the Jesus Fast, my heart has deepened to see the great harvest of Jewish souls in Israel and in the US. If you do another “Send”-like meeting, I pray you will include the Messianics.

I thank God for this breakthrough experience that has changed my way of living completely.
Now I have my heart, my eyes, my ears open.
On the last three days I’ve started dreaming about my future as a missionary and I also have been receiving revelations of God’s Word.
I’ve begun to pray to the Lord of the harvest to Ekballo labors into His great harvest.
Here I am Jesus!
Amen.

So many profound changes that we are joining you in the continuation of Prayer and Fasting.
Two days ago, I told my husband, I hoped a fast would continue thru this ministry.
God Bless and Protect y’ all

My prayer is for a boldness to share Jesus Christ. On March 8th I was involved in a head on collision with a drunk driver who was dead on the scene. When the collision happened the white airbags surrounded my whole interior of my truck cab the lights came on there was a white powder released from the airbags and I could just feel the presence of the Lord in the cab with me. I now have a platform to stand on asking others if this was you in the other vehicle where would you be for eternity? For a long time I have been thankful for the blessings and favor over my life but it has been taken to a whole new level now. I know what God has called me to do and I am just waiting for him to help me for fill the calling that he’s placed on my life. I have asked Him and continue to ask Him why me why so much favor and blessing over my life and my children’s lives. My mother was Jewish and I was brought up not hearing about Christ but I got to an age where something was missing and I found out that it was Jesus Christ. I praise Him and thank Him for allowing me to share in his kingdom and to tell others about how good our God really is. Thank you for being obedient and bringing the send it was an experience like I have never before.

Thank you for your ministry and dedication. Thank you for leading us in this fast and for all you’ve shared in your daily messages. I have saved each email you sent, planning to do the fast again so I was glad to hear we’re continuing to fast and pray and receive your blogs.
Due to health issues, I haven’t done a complete fast, but I have been challenged and inspired and encouraged in joining with you and all the others who are fasting.
Lord, let Your kingdom come and Your will be done in our nation and in our world!
Ekballo laborers into every people group and into the seven mountains of our nation, in Jesus’ name!

I have gained such clarity re my place in the body. I am His “Anna” (Luke 2:36-38) – set apart for worship, fasting, and prayer – in devotion to Christ, and prayers for the Bride (His church – her maturing in the very nature and mission of Bridegroom Jesus on all mountains of influence!) and with prayers and fasting for the Lost, and the prodigals, and laborers into the harvest fields! I have been ekballo’d as well – serving as an online missionary, sharing the gospel through Global Media Outreach. (https://globalmediaoutreach.com/) I made business cards with encouragements about how LOVED individuals are, and also including gospel links, such as “godlife.com” – which has information on how to receive Jesus, as well as discipleship materials! I have had opportunities to share the gospel on the street. People are very hungry and open to hearing of the love of Jesus, and the good news of salvation. I have never sensed such great CLARITY, PASSION, and FOCUS than has come through this 40 day fast! Like you, God has given me a “race track to run on” (Acts 20:24!) God is on the MOVE! We are in the days of acceleration, and global harvesting! GLORY! I JOIN YOU, precious Lou, in your ongoing vision of revival, awakening, and HARVEST! Praise our Lord!!! God’s richest blessings to you, your family, upon your ministry! (Ephesians 3:14-21!) Sue Justice

I have experienced Jesus in countless, powerful ways over the past 40 days including some significant breakthroughs in our family.

Back in 2015, God put a call on my life to “refuse to leave the next generation behind,” that eventually led us to start a ministry called Brave Girls Gather in 2017. Over the past 40 days, he has confirmed that call and opened doors of opportunity that could only be Him, bringing people behind and within our ministry. I sense Him opening doors that no man can shut. One particular day during the fast, I asked God to confirm His call on me again. Later that night, a friend I hadn’t heard from in quite some time, messaged me that she was in church worshipping and praying when God gave her a vision of her and I as lionesses guarding and protecting the next generation as they ran to us for guidance. Our ministry exists to empower the next generation to live out the wonder of their purpose by equipping the church with tools to connect and invest in their lives. This friend has very little awareness of our ministry’s vision and mission. She later went to the altar for prayer, where the woman praying for her called her a “lion.” God had specifically given me the picture of the church holding up shields of faith to protect the next generation. The desperation we see in the next generation today are because the enemy, prowling around like a lion, understands their worth. It’s time for the church to see their Kingdom purpose too and send a thunderous roar over them from the real Lion of Judah.

I have also seen a breakthrough in my husbands walk with Jesus and in our marriage. Things I have prayed over for years!

My family of 6(kids ages ranging from 15-10) attended the Send. My parents (I am the oldest child) always want to experience what God has for our family, and The Send was a way Of opening doors for us.

Throughout the day of the Send, Andy Byrd and others called out for people to come forward to adopt children. My family almost simultaneously agreed that we were being called to bring a child into our home and give them a life, and show them the love of God.

2 days after the Send, we are driving home, to Knoxville, Tennessee, and my parents and I are working together to research the best way to go about adopting. We immediately felt weird when looking into the process. We agreed that if God really wanted to have us do this, he’d show us the kid he wanted us to have.

A few days go by, and my mom calls a friend who has 3 adopted children of their own, for advice. He tells her of a family who had just introduced themselves to him (specifically, on the Sunday after the Send). They had 2 little kids, age 3 and 5, who they had been fostering for 2 years, and needed a home for them so that they didn’t have to go back into foster care.

Fast forward to today. God has moved in mighty ways. It is a private adoption, and these two adorable children will be moving in with us the first week of May, with guardianship transferred by the end of April. Adoption papers will be signed by Christmas of this year!

Through our obedience, God has given brother and sister, Bella Elizabeth and Jeremiah King, a new home that will raise them to be warriors for Christ!!

God has led me to this fast to stir me into a deeper desire to continue fasting more frequently than I have in the past. Your post on day 39 has just confirmed what God has been stirring in me to continue fasting to see His hand move in the end time harvest. Please keep in touch with me.

On this journey in fasting my second 40 day fast the first for Promise Keeper’s the St.Petersburg gather along with our local church. So it has been a while then now this fast. I do prison ministry in the panhandle of Florida. I have been in ministry as a volunteer disciplining men thru a Messianic Jewish bible study as well as mentoring. The revival fires are happening as well as men being released into society changed do Gods work. These men are disciplines the fire is in them as well me
True revival begins with repentance and not about you dying to this flesh daily as the spirit man will see Yeshua work mightly in unity to love one another as he loves you. Shalom Shalom with our Messiah Yeshua.

This fast and Lou’s prophetic emails have been confirming things for my husband and I that we have been believing for since before we were married 2 years ago.

We’ve known that we are those worshippers that will travel the country. We’ve been praying for the timing and years ago we felt like it was coming in September of 2019! Other emails have been so word for word things we have prayed and written in journals we read them crying. It has confirmed our life calling and given us greater clarity on our next steps!

Breakthrough in my ministry and my grandson’ s life. Prayer life increased. Hearing more clearly. Thanks, Lou, could not have done it without your encouraging messages💕🕊

During the fasting and prayer time I have experienced breakthrough with prayer, taking my mind off of my own problems and setting it more on others. I felt I was lacking something, yet every time I prayed and fasted during lunch time, I found myself rejuvenated, like the Spirit had awoken in me.
While I have missed a few days, and I don’t experience the same thing, I know that this time has changed my life. I have had the same thought that it won’t end now but I will work to make Prayer and fasting a once a week occurrence.
I am excited to enjoy lunch again and continue to experience all God has done for me. Thank you for hosting this once in a lifetime experience, I really enjoyed it.

This fast has really stretched me. The daily devotionals have radically affected my heart. I have been crying out for increased focus and vision.
I struggle with chronic headaches…they have intensified during the fast, so I altered my fast accordingly. I cry out to our Father for grace for fasting and focused intercession daily! I desire to continue with this…may His Kingdom come, His will be done, in my life, as well as the world.
If anyone has any suggestions on how I can streamline my thoughts…any advice/encouragement from their personal experience in this fast, I will gladly welcome it. Thanks. ~Judy

Josh

This 40 day fast has been a test in my life. I was not able to fast food or even do a Daniel fast with what my job entails (firefighter), but I wanted to fast something that was hard to go without and let me fully put my faith and trust in the Lord and that was sleep. I committed to waking up early before work or before anyone would be awake to have time with Him and digging in the Word like I never have before. Lou, your daily emails kept me on track and opened up new doors to the Bible and some of the great stories in it. I found myself reading chapter after chapter some days and bringing me closer to my Heavenly Father and learning just to stop and listen to His voice. Thank you for stirring something new inside of me, something that will help me bring in the harvest! Until He returns, Josh

Thank you Mr. Lou for this opportunity to be challenged and catapulted to go deeper into intercession! You and your testimonies are such an encouragement and inspiration to press and press! I am truly grateful to have the privilege of being ignited by the fire our Holy Spirit has placed in you! You are a fire-starter for the Kingdom—a Kingdom arson (if you will). God is abundantly blessing your obedience!🙏🙌❤️

Jason Nasr

I have had soo many prophetic dreams in my fast for myself and for my nation, Lebanon.

My life has been challenged and changed during these fasts. I feel so blessed to be part of a group of the body of Christ who is banding together to pray for change and for a move of God. I want to continue to fast and pray and to receive your emails of encouragement in fasting and prayer, Lou. Thank you for your faithfulness to the call of God!

Greetings Lou Engle;
Thank you for the invitation for the fast. Although I can fast a meal a day, I can no longer do full days. So for me it was more the 40 days of praying with you and others who were participants. Although I have not had an earth shattering experience, I have been blessed by the Word and participation. Yesterday day I felt encouraged to take another forty days of prayer and worship for labourers to join in the harvest needs of North America. Mexico continues to increase in violence. Jobs are scarce and extortion high for anyone who does earn some money. The USA needs our prayers to support the good people under the Trump administration. Canada is so far from the moorings it was established on, which is the Word of God. We need a change in government which will happen in October of this year. We need to take heed of 2 Chronicles 7:14. God continue to bless you and prosper your Kingdom ministry. As you pray for Canada please pray for the One Accord, a group of pastors traveling across Canada encouraging churches to fast and pray for 21 days, their key verse is 2 Chronicles 7:14. To fight against the Sogi program in our schools and against the LGBTQ agenda in Canada and around the world. You can find their information by doing a google search for One Accord. Thank you.

Being part of this fast stirred up hungry in me to fast more. God gives me a lot of dreams with significant meanings and now I can see much more how dreams can change the course of our lives. But I wanna share one of my dreams in this period.
In the dawn of the day 03/31, I dreamed that I was traveling and I saw the name “Auck”. I thought It was related to Auckland city, since in the dream I was abroad. In this day, the devotional was related to Luke 4:18. Then I prayed for Auckland City and asked God to say me what was it the dream about. After 5 days some thought comes to my mind: searching the origin of the city’s name. So I found out it literally means oak-land. Therefore I decided to search bible verses with the tree’s name. The first one I discovered related to It was Isaiah 61:1-3, and in this right moment I remembered of a prior devotional named “4:18N”. Surprisingly, the devotional with Luke 4:18 and my dream It was on the same day, besides, the message of Isaiah 61 from my dream’s interpretation is related to Luke’s verse.
I believe We must go on praying for the Spirit of the Lord be upon us to set the captive free. Like the oaks trees, we must be resistents in the circumstances, keeping on in His justice, fasting and praying so that He may be glorified and there be the manifestation of his glory.
God bless you all.

Eldon

Thanks Lou!! I’ll I’ve ever truly wanted is revival and more of Christ… You have helped renew my faith, my hope and my calling. 7 major breakthroughs during this fast!! Jehovah Perazim!!!

My husband and I had just finished a first of the year 21 day fast when at the Send this fast was announced. We both heard God say, do it, I want to take you deeper. We have been in active warfare for 11 years with the spirit of addiction in our only 28-year-old son, so the purposes of the fast, hit home. During the 40 days, our son’s 2-year engagement ended, he has relapsed and home again. Through it all, God has blessed us with the peace that we can not even understand. The chances again to be available with Godly wisdom and advice. The ceaseless prayer of Freedom and complete surrender for his life. We know and claim the calling the Lord has put on him. It was 5 years ago, TODAY, April 9th, we all were serving at the LA Dream Center. We were picking up garage on the street, in front of the Azusa Street house (Bonnie Brae house), the young leader from the Dream Center stopped and announced he has never been able to go through the house, as there was always something going on and wanted to see if we could today. We were allowed to tour, ( short time only, since many were coming soon for the anniversary celebration)!, While in the living room, the young leader announced God had spoken to him there and directed his conversation to my son, Luke, telling him he was to pray for deliverance for Luke right there…in the House… Luke said yes! He was anointed with oil and circled by all of us that day, 5 years ago, right in the house of great revival! So Yes, satan BE GONE!

🙋🏻‍♀️Blessings Brother, my Testimony has been as I live by Faith this Past 9 months since I found my self without a home as a single Mother Sharing custody with the Father of my kids.
And now this Fast. Has been more Peace of God within me. I’m very sensitive to the Spirit and seems ( discerning of the spirits ) and seems like has been much better the freedom within, as I sleep 😴 through the night (God wakes me up sometimes in the night) like He said that He will restore my dreams and vision. Seems like has been an acceleration like He said in my life. I have been having Mantels, Prophets passing double portions of Impartations of what they have to me, lots of Wisdom, Warrior Peace, Purity of Heart, Faith and an Axe etc in all this time. Because God has given me lots of Projects and is equipping me for them. I’m taking several. Classes that He said that God Already equipped me but He wants me to be Certified as a Minister Pastor (3 yrs of School also School of the Prophetic, and others like Liberations (which already tooked Classes in the past but now with a different teacher, Dreams and Visions, as well) because of the Projects that are coming up etc also He added 8 more days so total 48 days to pray for the Nations where He will Send me that already told me decades ago … and for my marriage which already shows me who will be my future Husband but seems like nothing it’s happening in the natural but I trust God. He will bring me a Husband in His Time. New Business, reconciliation with my kids this year, a move to another city. Mmmmm I just think that the Fasting has increased or reinforced what God already told me and to be set free of the enemy bugging me every day, especially in the night (I’m living with Mormons and it’s stuff in around the house that it’s not from God. I’m in Utah) Even so it’s not a diet the Fasting, I lost 30 lbs in the Picture I was on my 7 days of just water 💦 and I felt Great. To the Glory of God!!! 😀 Holy Spirit gave me the Menu and told me what to buy. One week just Water 💦 and Amazing vitamins but I run out of one and God said my Grace it’s Sufficient and not just by bread 🥖 live a men but by His Word… then 7 days of Salads and bread 🥖 with sunflower seeds, then 7 days of soup 🍲 and Salads (simple salads no tomato 🍅 nor avocado 🥑 but at the end was dry tomato ) with bread (flat Naan, flat Greek, and this last one bread with seeds) and go back to repeat 7 days with just Water 💦 etc He did not want me to do just Water hope this make sense 😊 I’m Mexican and English it’s my second language. Thank you 🙏🏼 for your Faithfulness Lou, Blessings for you and your Family and all this People Fasting all over the world 🌎 Ekballo etc we are moving and like God said to a Prophet Ken Christmas last year, that God said no more men’s turn but God turn that He will lift up Jesus name and we see it, even more, this Year. Hahaha, Praise God !!! Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life no men come to the Father but by Him. 🙏🏼❤️✝️🔥🕊🛡⚔️🎁❤️🙏🏼😀 In His Love Diana

Darci Woodard

Dearest Lou,
How I thank God for you! Although this fast was not what I had originally planned ((water only three days a week) the clarity and miracles that have occurred these past 40 days have been humbling and life changing! On day 28 I was struggling and I heard the words” you keep giving me sacrifices to ease you mind, but it’s your heart that I want!” What a loving wonderful Papa God we serve! My intimacy with Him is on a new, deeper level! During this time I have read Pete Grieg’s Book Dirty Glory, and my soul has been stirred to intercede for this generation like never before! I have made many trips to IHOPKC from Des Moines, but am praying that I will be led to a house of prayer or better yet, be involved in raising up houses of prayer in Des Moines! My grown children have left the church and married atheists, so my prayers have personal implications. Thank you for all you do to bring this Joel 2 generation to its fullness in The Kingdom! May God bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you’! Love and Peace, Darci

With the chaos I’ve been going through at home, I’ve been praying for peace and silence so I can hear God more and I’ve been literally desperate. Well this past week my brother has been with his daughter and I had peace and quiet, well he’s got accepted into a rehab facility for alcoholism to get sober and to become better, that he will be going to Tuesday for 45 days in Fort Laudable. It’s crazy how 40 that number seems to be powerful. God is definitely working and I truly see it happening. God is truly doing great things and one thing one of my pastors , whos been a big help to me in this process , Pastor Samuel Rolon in his preaching that I’ve been working on is to try to remain positive and not speak negative so every day I always say it’s going to be a good day and put God first and spend time with Him before work, that makes a huge difference . When we stay faithful to God He is faithful on to us. I read one of your devotionals that you shared, with where it talked about someone extending the JESUS FAST and I had it on my heart to do so and wanted a sign to do it. The head pastor of my church wanted the whole church to be part of a 40-day prayer and it would end with the whole church gathering together for a youth service combining the whole church, that’s everything to me where we can gather together and spend time with the one Who Saved Us. So my JESUS Fast will end on the 26 of April, God is doing great things and I want to keep this up to go deeper with Him. And eventually go out there and pray for people with courage And boldness.

Wonderful Presence of the Lord, clear direction in my calling. Open doors. I could since the unity we had in the spirit. This is not the specifics but thank you Lou, for all you do for the Lord and the body of Christ. Gods blessings on you and all you do.

I have seen the power of God working throughout this time of fasting and prayer. I have seen a change in my health. They found a spot last year and this year not even a trace of it. My daughter told me some real secret things this year about temptation (same-sex attraction) and molestation. My heart was broken and I am grateful I was in prayer. I have seen healing take place in this matter and asking that complete healing takes place in her heart, soul, and spirit. Thanks for this opportunity and I know this is my lifestyle for life.

My dear Pastor Lou and the rest of brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ. May God bless you to all of you and me. This fasting time has been for me a re encounter with my first love. Jesus. He called to do great things and my fears stop me. But now I understand his promises,his care and his great love for all of us. We keep praying fasting to see his mercy and glory filling all the earth. That is bis dream and our dream too. Pray for my country Honduras bc He has big pland for it too🙏🙏🙏

It’s so challenging to put into words just how instrumentally the Lord has used you (Lou Engle) in my life, but here it goes; I met you for the first time a couple of months ago in Tallahassee at the International House Of Prayer. You and your lovely family ministered to me and my family (husband, Zac Rocke, my parents, and my sister brother-in-law) in a personal and intimate way that is so unique and special. Before ever meeting you, my sister Amy Correia passed along a little booklet to me back in 2015 – called “Nazarite DNA”. It changed my life and answered the many questions I had as to why God moved me to Florida (a place I said I would NEVER live) without a job, no car, and ultimately only a few bags of clothes to my name. I know now, that He was positioning me for such a time as this, and birthing dreams inside of my heart to see Revival. To see a revolution of believers refusing to settle for anything less than what God has for us. This dream was inside of my heart and it has launched as a non-profit called “Like Wildflowers”. Let me backtrack for one minute because that dream had settled into my heart through trials and tribulations and it gathered dust and despair for a few years. However, sitting with you and your wife, at THOP I could feel that dream again and it began to leap within me. You STIRRED the sleepiness that had fallen on my spirit and revived that dream in me again, on February 5th, 2019 in Tallahassee, FL. So, on February 22nd, 2019 (my birthday) I finally launched Like Wildflowers. Since then, I’ve been fasting and praying and have seen God birth more dreams inside of me, a couple in particular that involves my husband and I together that will hopefully launch this year, but I received very SPECIFIC confirmation from your new book, “The Jesus Fast” (pg. 40) on those dreams. Jesus is so worthy of pressing through the disappointments and persevering no matter the cost. This is God’s promise and He is speaking to me and confirming so much through your obedience and discipline to pray and fast and seek His face. The attached photo is a picture of myself having a “Prayer in the Garden” type moment with my Maker. This is something that the Lord showed me recently, in Luke 22:46 – as disciples of Jesus, we all need to SHAKE the sorrow and the sleep OFF and RISE + PRAY! Fully persuaded of the full access we have as His children. For me, this call all started the day I gave my life to Jesus and made Him my Lord and Savior (May 3rd, 2012), but then something really started to shift on September 25th, 2015 when I left Michigan to answer the call of God on my life and move to Tallahassee. Something else changed when I read “Nazarite DNA”. For about a year and a half, I lived a Daniel Fast. I desirously gave myself to devouring the scriptures, and prayer day and night. I just couldn’t get enough and I knew that the Lord was doing something inside of me. It continues through “The Jesus Fast”, as I’ve yielded myself to God, this fire in my bones burns hotter and hotter. I am in great anticipation to see what the rest of 2019 has in store and especially 2020. I sincerely say, THANK YOU to you and your wife, Therese (I am convinced she is an angel, simply due to how gracious and loving she is in her words and actions). She is truly inspiring in the most Spirit-filled way possible. You have molded my destiny through your own ministry in a mighty way! May God bless you and your family. Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come! To Him Who is worthy.
With Love & Grace, Andrea Rocke

P.S. My husband and I had the pleasure of going to dinner with Contend Global’s, Nicole Forber & Kanaan Allen. They spoke so highly of you and your family and were just a delight to be around. Especially, Nicole, you could really sense how powerfully you and your family have affected her life. It blessed my heart greatly. The impact that you, your family and your team have goes further and wider than you could ever imagine. God bless.

Andre

For the first time ever The Lord opened my eyes to hear Him speak, and I received an accurate word of knowledge (through a visual impression) about a young man at church. Needless to say it encouraged us both! More Lord!!

Linda

I have to say this has been a journey …so many times I felt I blew it … but I have a fresh fire ignited in me for revival
In Isaiah 62
I will not give Him rest until He sends the tidal wave of His purposes and plans for America and the nations
The ember He placed me years ago has had the wind of the Holy Spirit igniting a fire I can not ignore
I am so thankful for your faithfulness Lou I have followed the Call since 7-7-07
And have never let go of the promise of the greatest revival to hit planet earth
I stand in awe and amazing at our God and what He is preparing I keep hearing get ready, get ready … are your ready
I reply; YES Lord, YES, come.

Hello Lou! Just wanted to say I’ve been fasting since Jan 1. I want to be and live revival. The full gospel. I have been so encouraged every day to be able to digest your blog:)! It has helped me immensely. Thank u brother! In my community, we haven’t seen a move of the HolyGhost in decades. My heart cry’s out for Jesus to come! Oh God may I be used to bring this to my area. Show me, guide me. God bless your ministry!!! P.s. watched the send live link! Amazing.

 

First, thank you for your daily devotional blogs. They have provided encouragement and focus. One night, during the fast, and I wasn’t even thinking about it, when, all of the sudden I received a revelation of the severity, the impact, the crushing of Jesus on the cross when the total sum of darkness came upon Him, and He received it all. Words fall short of what I “saw”. Now, there is a new awareness and expectation to receive all He paid for. I was also greatly impacted by the “Ekballo” and “Stadium Christianity” message, to the point of praying, “Lord of the harvest, Ekballo me”. I am now, by His sending, participating in the 1Nation,1Day outreach to Peru in June, and on June 29, 15 stadiums will be filled with people to hear the good news of salvation in Jesus. My life will never be the same. Thank you, Lou, and I plan to continue following your blog.

Prior to the fast, my family and some of our best friends had received a calling to open a pediatric medical clinic that would combine low-cost, compassionate medical care to all and the opportunity for people to experience supernatural healing through prayer. We had no idea how this might come to fruition, definitely not enough money, and no known location. We did have a series of prophetic Words which confirmed that the Holy Spirit was moving us and that we would not fail. We prayed daily during the fast that God would send us to the neighborhoods and make a way. Through the 40 days, we received an opportunity to sign a lease for clinic space within a 48,000 square foot school owned by a local church for $1 a year. This school is directly located within a city neighborhood, houses a school for children with autism, and provides real-life solutions to children from disadvantaged homes. Our clinic will be a springboard to tangibly reach these people! In the last week of the fast, I felt the Lord tell me that he was releasing his presence to move on the clinic and that we were to prepare ourselves. That same morning, our nurse practitioner received that she was to pack all things from her current job as this adventure would be starting soon. The very next day, we received confirmation that supernatural finances would be delivered to us to provide supplies and salaries for the two people who were quitting their current jobs to work full-time at this clinic. The nonprofit Sozo Pediatrics will likely be launched in June 2019 in Lancaster Ohio and, I believe, that this partnering medical professionals with churches will provide a framework for others to do the same in our area. Thanks, Lou and all others involved in The Send for your endurance, hard work, and faithfulness to your calling!

Thank you so much for calling the body to this fast. I feel changed and challenged. I don’t know to what degree but I do know God is closer or I am at least. Haha! The devotionals also! 👌🏾 OMG! SO GOOD. I felt so tied to the storyline of heaven reading them. Like I was really apart of something bigger than myself. Please continue writing them. They’re amazing. But yes! May the revival of Azusa touch the globe in a double portion in Jesus’ name, AMEN!

My soul is so stirred in this season in this fast and through your ongoing leadership in this daily email. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your countless hours on behalf of America to bring revival.

Before reading the Day 39 blog, I had come to the conviction to grow in fasting and prayer lifestyle; seeking Jesus and praying for the “ekballo” and the worldwide harvest. Let the”blog” keep coming.

God bless you Man of God!
I don’t even know where to begin😭 Praise Jesus!
I just want to thank you for following and being obedient to all the Lord has asked of you! It is a long story but the bottom line is that the Lord sent our family from Chicago to Orlando because of a revival that was going to take place and begin here in Orlando. After many years of tears, last year we began to see it all unfold. We are so humbled and honored to be a small church in Orlando and be able to be a part of such a huge move of God! There are many testimonies but know that we have seen such a shift in our personal lives and most of all in our church. We’ve been joking about how this seems to be the year for fasting. As a church, we started the year with a forty day fast and had like a week off and began another week for the Send and then started this forty day fast. As I began to read the devotional today I stopped at the beginning and asked the Lord if I was to continue the fast. By the end of the devotional, it seems I have my answer…lol!
The Holy Spirit is amazing!
We are in expectancy!
Know that we will be united in this move of God through prayer and fasting and for all God has planned in this season! I would totally love to continue to receive these emails.
Blessing to you and your team!

After The Send I knew that wasn´t just an event or even a moment in my life, I knew that God wants to make revival born in me. At the first day of the fast, I was working in my local church carnival conference ( very common in Brazil) and as a volunteer I had no expectations on see the first session, but somehow here I was just hearing that man who is one of that I belive greatest revivalists in Brazil today… after like 30 minutes of a powerful sermon about the Prayer Spirit I was literally on the ground crying out to the Lord to send me His Spirit and make me a revivalist in this world. After some days I was in my prayer time speaking to God about the revival and How much we want and need this and He lead me to a moment of cry, pray and declare this … some days after in my church a young boy said “the revival in Brazil is a reality of our right now “. The fast is teaching me about to count all as a loss, after see and feels things like never before at The Send and in fast time nothing in this world will ever be enough but God wants to show this world who He is and He wants to do this through my life.

Since starting this fast, I have felt a stirring in my heart to write songs again – songs to the Lord, about the Lord, for Him, and for the church. It was like I remembered my calling and its value and couldn’t believe I had neglected it for so long, but I now know I can never forget it. I have a newfound fire and grace to write and spend extended time alone just to activate and cultivate the creativity He’s already given me – knowing that it is not just for me, but for others as well, and it brings Him glory! Thank you, Lou, for being obedient to the voice of the Lord – I honor you and your entire team. These devos brought such confirmation to what God was already speaking to me as a Daughter of Thunder, so I thank you!

P.S. My first two guitars in high school were blue just because “I liked the color!” 🙂

Alex Heltemes

After praying and fasting super intentionally for the first time, I have been hearing from the Holy Spirit for the first time! I prayed to God asking for words of knowledge about people on the streets. The next day the first man I talked to, the Holy Spirit highlighted the name Alyssa, who happened to be the name of the girl he had just started seeing! God is so good, he has been setting me free from past habits and addictions and I never want to go back! Dead to sin, Alive to God!

Yolandi Botha

This fast stirred a fire for a dream I had 5 years ago of a massive worship event in South Africa, all kinds were there, people from every nation and the Lord showed SA being a trumpet to European nations, it was also massive intercession for nations taking place.

Wendy

Thank you, Lou, for your heart of love and devotion to our Lord. It stirs my faith and pushes me forward in my pursuit of Jesus.

Most of our whole church, about 50+ folks participating, young and old, from a small town of 2,000 people in northern Vermont set aside these last 40 days to fast and pray after watching The Send and hearing the call of the Lord. We have desired and prayed for revival in our town and community for a while, but it has taken the Lord to first do a work in our hearts as His people, to make us ready for what He desires to do. We are full of faith and excitement to serve our King.

Participating in this fast, with hundreds of the body of Christ around the world also fasting, has fueled the fire in my heart. God has been at work in me to root out long-standing sins and things that easily trip up my feet, so I can run this race with more steadfastness and single focus. He is such a faithful God!

We are so encouraged that God doesn’t forget a little town in the middle of the country that’s been crying out for more of Him and His heart for the lost. We will continue to pray and seek His face for the fullness of the outpouring He wants to release in this day and age. What an honor to be alive at this time!

Thank you again for your life of devotion and prayer, storming the gates of heaven on behalf of our King and His people!

Wendy Mae

God is so good!!! He’s such a loving father and he has given me breakthrough during this fast. He has taught me to hold onto Him with everything I have! He has shown me I have a passion for helping people and strangers have spoken life into me! I love Jesus. I can’t say that enough. Even though I’m so unworthy, He loves me, and has plans for me to prosper and not to harm me!!! Amen! Praise the Lord!!!

From a teenage girl to now being a wife and mother of three, my heart is always set on fire by your words Lou. You carry such an anointing that brings the glory out of everyone around you! Thank you for who you are and what you are accomplishing in the Earth for Heaven’s sake. I love and appreciate your ministry!

When I started the fast, my main goal was to get closer to Jesus. I did my first ever fast, juice and water fast like Daniel could’ve done. As time went on, God started to give a little bit of revelation here and there. However, the testimony I have to share is that in my simple act of obedience by fasting, The Lord has freed me from homosexuality, masturbation, and pornography. I’ve struggled with it since I was in middle school and onto my young adult life. I’ve never gone 40 days or more without succumbing to the bondage of the sin. With each passing day, it gets a little bit easier to say no to the temptations and yes to the will of God for my life. I renew my day in and day out and I’m excited to see what God will do not only in my life but in those around me because of this fast. All praise and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ!

During this fast I have been traveling every week, with a group called World Race America, we are a Multigenerational biblical community that is fully dependent on undivided devotion and obedience to the Lord.

I have learned that I have more self-control than I ever believed I had before. I learned that we as a body of Christ can sometimes abuse the word: grace. Allowing myself to “mess up” and saying it’s ok God will have grace on me, but not truly coming to the Lord with a repentant heart.
The Lord has shown me that there have been generations before me that have prayed and fasted for me now it’s my turn to be on my knees in prayer and fasting for the generations to come.

Crisol Hernandez

This fasting time has been a challenge many times. The Lord is beautiful! So amazing is his love, so Holy.
I couldn’t read, no far no closer, but the Lord healed me. I can see now, I had this eyes problem for almost three years, but now I can see!
I can see! I can see!
Moreover, The Lord changed me from the inside out, my children too. My son 12 years old is reading the Bible, fasting, waking up in prayer, worshipping and continue evangelism.
Praise God! To Him the glory! Lord Jesus!

I have known for years that I carry a gift of evangelism. I have been fasting on and off for 3 years now. I was excited to start this fast, as I was expectant to see some kind of move from The Father. I underestimated big time…. on day 1 of the fast I found myself praying over a friends baby that had major medical problems and she was completely healed, and that was basically every day of this fast. Nearly every day I saw Jesus intervening in people’s lives around me, and all it took was a humble willing vessel. This fast has propelled me fully into the fullness of what The Father has for me as His son, and has delivered me from struggles that has pulled my focus from Him for a long time, like my crippling addiction to sports, and unclean music. This is something I’ve been praying to get for years. Only God can do this kind of stuff. Only God. Hallelujah.

Attempting this fast has solidified for me that Jesus will not leave us abandoned Rather He embraces the prayer and fast of His people and will have His way in the end as we ekballo. His people will be saved as we pray and petition Him to do just that save us His people. We must remain on the wall in the spirit of sacrifice and prayer knowing that He is listening and answering us. We can’t stop he prayer and fasting So I journey on as an intercessor and warfare prayer person. Blessings and thanks Lou for your committed on fire leadership It keeps the fire in my heart burning Blessings and Shalom

I had heard about The Send from my cousin who lives in Tampa. Then a few weeks later Lou Came to my church, Greenhouse to Share his vision God gave him for The Send. While he was speaking my spirit was leaping on the inside. My cousin Sasha and I volunteered as ushers. Our relief never showed up, so we ushered the whole day and had the best time. Definitely God’s amazing grace. We didn’t get sunburned, neither did our legs hurt from going up & down the stairs seating people! One of the most amazing times of our life! There was a shift in my life that day to go deeper into God to press in and to cry out here I am Lord. I already had a sense I was moving to Orlando for personal reasons but after The Send that sealed the deal. I may have been going originally for what I thought was the reason but I God has a bigger plan for me moving to Orlando. Not only has my home church planted a church in Orlando, but I just found Jesus Image. I am doubly blessed and can’t wait to see where the Lord wants to take me. I am so grateful for those who have contended for God’s heart to send forth the laborers to bring in the harvest. I am blessed to be a part of it. It’s an exciting time! Kim M

I’ve never done anything like this before. I’ve had stomach/intestinal problems for years, and the Lord told me to not eat desserts for 40 days. Cookies, brownies, sweets- I didn’t know how much I’ve relied on them for comfort until I stopped eating them. In the midst of the fast, the Lord began to show me areas where I had allowed lust, rejection, and impatience to have open doors to my life, and I began to close them. As that happened, I began to see God in a way I’ve never known Him and to learn who I am in Him. My heart has become increasingly burdened for the local high school and middle school, and I’m learning how to pray and intercede for them. I work at the school one day a week as a substitute teacher and love those kids so much. Every day, their names are on an endless loop in my heart and mind, and I’m praying for revival there.

The scripture from Ezekiel 22:30-31 has begun to change my perspective of prayer:

Ezekiel 22:30-31
I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land so that I would not destroy it, but I found no one. Thus I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; their way I have brought upon their heads,” declares the Lord God.

God WANTS me to intercede, is LOOKING for people to stand in the gap. Lord, find me faithful going forward.

These daily devotionals have been so helpful. They are literally the first thing I read in the morning. When my alarm goes off between 3:30-4 to go to prayer meeting, I know that if I open my mail and read the blog, I’ll be awake before long. Thank you so much for going before us, and coming alongside us all. God Bless you, brother.

Angie

I live-streamed the send and was already feeling a call to fasting. I joined in as I could during these 40 days with some full and some partial fasting.
All I know is that I am more hungry for the purity of Gods Word and more broken for this world and more aware than ever of my great need for God in my life, and I don’t want to stop pressing in.
I had not dreamed in a while and I dreamed a couple of times lately. I also see God orchestrating things that are bigger than what I can accomplish on my own, especially in my community/neighborhood.

I have been finally able to forgive my mom.

Lou,
This has stirred my faith in so many ways. I can’t thank you enough. Keep the devotions coming. This hungry soul needs them.
On Fire For Christ,
Dana

This has been my first 40 day fast that has actually been a sacrifice. In the times past, I only would give up sweets…which I love (inherited sweet tooth over here). But this time around I was looking forward to the struggle of giving up a lot more than that. I tried to stay practical at the same time, doing something I could maintain and that would work with work, taking care of 3 kids, etc. I kept to a strict Daniel Fast during the weekdays and juice/water only for Friday-Sunday. I wanted to give up more than just what I eat, but also what I spend my time doing. I didn’t give up my job, even though that’s what I spend most of my day doing. But I laid down social media, television, and all online shopping (things that take up extra time). There has been so much grace! I’m actually so shocked that what I thought would be very difficult for me has not been very hard. I did water only fast for the first time…trying to lean in more and push myself. I ended up getting pretty sick and ending the water only after 24 hours. If I felt lead I would do it again. I had a really powerful dream that the Lord opened up to me again and again over the course of a few days! There hasn’t only been grace for the sacrifice of food but I’ve actually been waking up early every morning and spending my waking moments (roughly half an hour) with the Lord. That is something I never thought I’d be able to do. I love my sleep and I’m not a morning person. But it’s been easy! And I love it. I’ve been journaling my journey because I felt like that was something the Lord whispered to me before I began. I’ve been practicing meditating on scripture, which I never understood until I heard Bill Johnson explain a couple of weeks ago. I really have mixed emotions about ending this fast. It’s been so refreshing to me. I definitely feel called to making fasting a regular part of my life, it never has been before. And I definitely want to keep being disciplined and not revert back to the lazy life I was living. I’m thankful for the tool of fasting and I’m thankful for people like Lou who are living examples, who practice what they preach, who are living sacrifices. Thank you, Lou!

I had been looking for when you were starting the 40 days fast but missed it. Independently the Lord started me on a 40-day water fast which I did successfully when younger, joining on your 15th day. I was getting pretty weak and the Lord changed it to a 20/20 fast, 20 on water and 20 on organic homemade veggie broth and juice. I was rocked by your Day 26 Stonewall devotional which changed my perspective totally. I never heard this word of Bob’s before. A week ago I discovered a tumor in my vagina, but He says I will triumph over it without surgery. At the same time, the Lord called me to apply to run for the new People’s Party of Canada to be a Minister of Parliament in Ottawa. I live near Toronto, but my 3 sons are in Sacramento living troubled lives, but I’m believing for a total breakthrough for them as well as the Lord launches me into this next season of my life. Thank you so much, Lou, for inspiring and informing me so I can join in the Ekballo prayers especially for the LGBTQ. God bless you MORE

Thank you, Lou, so much, I only heard of you at the beginning of this fast and your blogs have been such encouragement as you have imparted a grace to fast, please do continue!
I am from the UK and for the last few years have felt dry and disconnected to the Lord, this fast has been me stoking my hunger and passion, I have not fasted as you, my offering has been small but my faith has grown to want to continue ongoing- it has been a sweet time with the Lord. Plus the calling on my life and the breakthrough for our society make it to important not to.
Personally during this fast God has confirmed to me that our family is to adopt. I heard Krish Kandaiah, ‘Home for Good’ speak at our church and received prayer as I accepted the call to adopt, a few days later your blog was saying the same.
I can confirm the great link between adoption and the end of abortion, in prayer I have sensed God’s heart for both and believe as the church steps up to adopt there will be a spiritual backlash against abortion.
God bless you, Lou,

Too many testimonies Lou, I’m not sure I can resume them in this box, I’ll try…

Last year I had a dream, In the dream I was in a park of a town in Colombia (I live in Colombia 😉 ) And there I was singing a new song for God with some young musicians , one of them was playing the guitar , other one was a female singer.. suddenly y saw all over the park a lot of shoes. there were a lot of them and they starting flying from the park to the heaven , they flew to the sky like fireworks. Similar to a spacecraft launch.

I really don’t remember how I met thesend. But it just came up ! And when I saw the video of all this missionaries lifting their shoes to the sky I almost fall in tears. I truly believe that this ministry is inspired by God and that every vision the Lord gave to you and you shared in this Jesus Fast is from God.

I sing to the Lord since I know Jesus.. but I was frustrated because all my worship dreams and ministry with God seemed to vanish and extinguish. I had a deep pain in my spirit because I felt that the time was moving forward and I was just sitting at the side of the road while the live and revival passes away and I felt so bad about that. But after that dream, the Lord started opening doors for me to worship him. And when you told us about the sons of thunder vision, at the same time the Lord gave to one friend and I a letter and music of one song that came up from the bottom of our hearts. And is just amazing the way that this is flowing really is God opening Doors moving to the accomplishment of that musical dream that I have in my heart to worship him. Lou thanks for saying yes to the Lord, I’m part of the sons of thunder you dream of and you fast for. Thanks for fasting and praying for me for almost 10 years thank you!! Hope to meet you In One of this huge parks and stadiums that the Lord will give us to fulfill the 20/20 vision. The movement of God that is happening thought your ministry is truly touching US and all the nations.

Keep going! And if the Lord gives me the chance to continue fasting and praying with you surely I will keep doing it with you.

Big big big hug and big big blessings for you Lou!

This is the first time I’ve fasted and it really meant something to me. Fasting, for me before, was always something I did to join everybody else and became a ritual of rules I had placed in myself and then maybe God will hear my request….sigh…

As I grew in my relationship with my Father I realized there was so much more to fasting and so I just didn’t fast. I wanted to understand more the purpose of fasting before I once again fell into that ritualistic striving to “be a good Christian” thing.

Then I went to The Send and I heard that call to fast echo across the crowd of people and I heard my Father nudge ever so gently with His whispers of love beckoning me to draw near to Him. I fought it. But the nudge persisted. So I thought about what I could fast. I kept hearing “Dive in, Jill. Go in over your head! Trust Me!” And so I did.
In my fast, I researched fasting and listened to some teachings and I realized that fasting is just spending more time with my Father…knowing Him and just being with Him.
He showed me things I needed to see about myself and my relationships. I didn’t have dreams or get these grand entrepreneurial ideas or write intimate worship songs or receive this passion for my purpose but I did get to know my Father a little better and His love for me. He is my Shepherd and I am a sheep who hears her Shepherd’s voice and I KNOW He is leading me to green pastures and still waters. And I am content.

Thank you for the blog every day. It was soooo encouraging and challenging as well.
You are a blessing.
With a grateful heart,
Jill Hatter

We have included no media as a part of this fast. Before the fast, the Lord gave my wife a dream where a number of different moves of God came together to pray for Israel. During the fast, the Lord has been reviving in my heart a decade old prophetic word I had received about Israel and abortion. “The measure by which Americans contend to end abortion is the same measure by which she will be used to contend for Israel in the last days. By this same measure, she will also see a revival of prayer, holiness, and fulfilling of the Great Commission. The Lord is raising up the Champions of Israel from the womb of this generation.” Our leading during this fast, there were far too many confirmations, is to start a local house of prayer, but not just a house of prayer. It will be a house of missions, of ekballo, of ending abortion, of being watchman for Israel. This fast has been one of those “never looking back” type of moments for our family.

What the Lord has done in me and through me during this fast has truly changed my life. I feel so much more spiritually disciplined and passionate for what is on God’s heart. I have never in my life prayed and interceded this much. I have prayed for and seen multiple healings, salvation, and lives restored. I have seen a shift in my family and friends since interceding for them and sharing with them the love of Jesus and their lives are drastically changing. During this fast, Jesus has completely set me free of the fear of man and He has given me a burning heart for adoption and for the nations of the world, including the USA. I’m only 18, but I know that my future husband has to have a heart for this as I do and like Andy Byrd said at the Send, “if the person your dating doesn’t want to adopt then they probably are not the one!”. I know that I will continue fasting and praying and focusing on God more and more as this fast has instilled a deep hunger to know more of Him. I am so in love with Jesus and it feels like my life of getting to really know Him is just beginning!

I did a modified fast as I am a mother of seven children and I have been greatly encouraged by how I have seen the Lord move. Early on in the fast, I had a dream that I was very pregnant and I was rubbing my very full belly. My house was full of people and my husband was preaching a message of repentance. When he was done I went and hugged him, still rubbing my belly. I felt repentant, the whole room full of people did as well. Repentant but encouraged and hopeful. I knew my belly wasn’t pregnant with a child but rather a calling. My husband felt assured he had spoken exactly what the Lord wanted him to. A few weeks later as I was praying Matthew 9:37-38 along with all my brothers and sisters in this Jesus Fast (day 19) I had a vision of my husband harvesting (wheat but I knew it was souls). We live in central California and he was standing pulling the harvest in from a field as far as the eye could see – the whole central valley. His eyes were resolutely set on the harvest. He had Jesus’ heart for the harvest and the Lord said, “he is My steady harvester of souls. He will pull many souls into My Kingdom & he will encourage many others to harvest in the same way he does.” (He is not a pastor by trade but rather a financial advisor, he has the gift of speaking the truth in love and people trust him and respond).

A week later the doctors found blockage in his heart and scheduled him for an angiogram and stents. We began to pray the blood of Jesus through his arteries and that Jesus’ blood would remove 100% of that plaque. He went in 4 days ago for the procedure and the doctor called me shocked – he had 0% blockage – perfectly clear arteries! We knew Jesus had graciously shown us His healing power!! That same day (April 5) was The Altar Conference here in Fresno, California. The Holy Spirit had been interceding with groans too deep for words through me this entire fast for The Altar (many of the same speakers/worship leaders from The Send were there). At the end of the conference (Saturday evening) when Jeremy Riddle, Steffany Gretzinger & Heidi Baker we’re up there they were powerfully interceding for our city. They could sense that there was a resistance in our city – I felt in my spirit it was Christians not wanting to fully yield to Holy Spirit. They battled in prayer and worship for our city and I’m so grateful they did. I believe that the seeds deposited at The Altar will bear much fruit in our Central Valley and just how the Central Valley is one of the worlds most productive agricultural regions and we send our fruit across the whole world, so we will send the fruit that comes from the breakthrough at The Altar across the whole world. I am continuing to fast for this breakthrough in our valley. My hearts cry (and I feel the Holy Spirit groaning so strong within me) is that Christian’s who are called by His Name will humble ourselves and pray and seek His Face (the FULLNESS of His Spirit) and turn from our wicked ways (fully yielding our whole lives to Him). I long to see Christians (specifically in our region here in central California) to give up their lives entirely to find True Life!! That we would joyfully live crucified to Him and we would no longer live but we would fully allow Christ to live in us!! That Rivers of Living Water would burst from within us!!!

Hi Lou! First of all, I want to thank you for your great encouragement for these 39 days of fasting. Every devotional gave me the direction to start praying on days where I was a little lost. Thank you for your kindness and reflection of Jesus on every line you wrote. Well, on the first half of the fast I was praying for revival, for God’s move through those who went to The Send, to the nations and all of that. But then the Spirit started switching my words leading me to start praying to me, myself. At first, I felt somehow selfish and thought it was out of purpose. But as I started praying for my own self, Jesus started to set me free from things I didn’t realize I had to. One night I started praying loud for my traumas and I felt some type of emotional block going away from my throat. Then the Holy Spirit filled out my room with His presence! It was incredible!!! I think this was the most remarkable thing that happened, and I know there’s more to come. Though I’m really excited to finish the fast, I will miss this unique time I had with my Father. God bless. 🙏🏼

My bones are burning and my spirit is ablaze. Day and night I am praying that this present move of God will sweep across Florida and the nation. The revival fires of all nations will join together as Jesus answers all our prayers with holy fire.

Gods timing has been something I have yet to comprehend but I am beginning to awaken to His presence and our purpose He intends for us to become more aware of!
Thank you, Lou, for your life and all you bring to us and the fire that is setting my heart ablaze this country, and the nations!
My first extended fast has been challenging but much more rewarding! I will tell of some of the chance timing of things that may seem small coincidences but in my eyes are the whispers from God that set my heart on course for the mission I was born for!
Even today as I read about Frank Bartleman in the devotional, it wasn’t 12 hours ago that I was reading Flashpoint of Revival (chap2 The Jesus Fast) for the first time and was moved even more so!
Also yesterday I opened a new copy of The Passion Translation I ordered from Bethel Church and the first page I opened to in John 4:31 is titled: The Harvest is Ready.
!!!! Wow!!!!!!
Last week I happened to take a shower with my new watch on and hadn’t realized it and hoped that I could dry it out but later on in the day realized it had stopped working but also noticed it had stopped precisely at 3:16 pm! Later even I noticed that the verse of the day in my YouVersion Bible app was John 3:16!!!!!!
Gods divine whisper has brought me closer and closer and finally at worship yesterday a moment I have been crying for as I was overwhelmed by His presence on me I had uncontrollable tears and emotion I couldn’t hold back. I have been praying for the Baptism of the Spirit and I know it’s coming! I want to burn for my family and for my city and for the world to see so they might come alive and know the Father!
This last 39 days has surely set me on a course of transformation and given me such a heightened awareness of Gods supernatural abilities to change me every day through prayer-fasting- and feeding off of the Word!
Yay God!

My fast involved laying down a whole list of things that drew me away from God. Dietary restrictions, social media, texting, social emails, and secular tv.
I made room for my heavenly father and He has shown me so much. He has worked in mighty ways in my husband, who did not fast, but as a result of my 34 yrs of praying and honoring God, has been catapulted into a season of growth in the Lord.
I have a journal full of miracles and wonders..of revelation and growth for me during this time. My fast ends on Good Friday when my spiritual mentor and Co-laborer in Christ…my daughter, will come here to NH to spend Resurrection weekend. She has been fasting as well and there has been a mighty move of God in her life.
We both know that this time of true consecration will be melded with the host of others who engaged with Father God, and together, our prayers for a worldwide revival will indeed come to pass.

I praise the Lord for this time of fasting. I believe the Lord has made it to be a breaker anointing to a lifestyle of fasting. This is my first concentrated long term fast (Daniel Fast). The flesh rose up in ways that revealed what needs to be crucified and sacrificed on the altar.

In the midst of the purge, there is more belief in me for who God is and what He can do. Although I live halfway across the country from my family, they have been getting physically and spiritually healed through prayer. Their belief is rising to action.
There is also a rising hunger to see transformation across the globe! It’s a time for reformation and revival—a turning in all ways to the Lord Jesus in His glorious, holy splendor!!

I’m honored to have done this fast, and I intend to continue fasting throughout this year!

Aaron

Thank you! This fast has been filled with God-appointments that we’re only fulfilled with divine timing. I started this fast after attending The Send. I believe one of the primary reasons I was there was to pick up this mighty tool as my family is moving to Northern Ireland in the next month!

I loved all of the calls at The Send – but it was the call to fast and pray that actually brought me joy! It was a year prior that I had read The Jesus Fast and My heart burned within me to encounter Jesus for myself and to contend for revival in the place of fasting. So I set my heart to begin this fast.

The day after The Send I met up with some friends in St. Petersburg, FL. They had previously been with us on a short term trip to Ireland. On the trip, they encountered the power of God through praying and worshipping for the nations. Since that time, they’ve been burning for Jesus and praying/worshipping and contending for revival over their city.

So, I attended their gathering the day after The Send and while I was there they prayed in faith that we would receive the remaining funding that we needed to launch to Ireland. We needed $1200/mo to proceed.

The next morning, while at the beach resting from the amazing weekend, I got a call from a friend in Illinois who said that he had been praying for us over the last day or two and he really felt like the Lord was telling him that their church was to fill the gap of what we needed financially! I wept at the faithfulness and love of God! The next day, it was all finalized and the church started the support that has now made it possible to “be Sent”.

As I looked at my calendar for the 40 days of fasting, I was traveling a lot and even taking a group to Northern Ireland. I decided not to do a water only fast, but to fast from many things that brought me comfort (caffeine, sweets, etc) and is fast from food every weekend (with the exception of the two I was traveling abroad).

While in Ireland though I saw God working in opening up new connections, new relationships that I’m sure will be building blocks of contending for revival in Ireland and Europe! So many meetings and relationships began that were only possible because of Gods sovereign timing!

During the fast, especially in the last two weeks, I’ve been having more dreams from the Lord, an increase in the prophetic, and I’m seeing sinful desires be squashed!

No tengo palabras para expresar mi gratitud, un incendio arde en mi ser, el llamado a contender en oración y ayuno es el llamado de mi vida. ahora mi iglesia local, mi ciudad, mi familia y mi nación están experimentando el Fuego de Dios. Gracias por hombres como Lou Engle que están pagando el precio para ver la Gloria de Dios en las naciones. Saludos desde IHOP Copiapo, Chile.

I have had you on my heart for several weeks. I keep remembering a small gathering at Shekinah Worship Center probably 8 years ago with Pastor Joe Sweet. In that evening gathering, you came out from around the pulpit, came down into the second row, stood in front of me and said, “Brother do not neglect the prophetic..”
I just wanted you to know that I consider that word a launching pad for where I am today. I am (at the age of 62) now in full-time ministry at one of the largest churches in San Francisco. I have not neglected the prophetic and I am not sure why I have you so strongly on my heart, but I feel the heart of the Father somehow as I write this email to you.
I sense the Lord’s heart for San Francisco and some of the things that He is doing here in healing this City. I just feel like letting you know that I support and pray for you, and consider the words that you spoke many years ago a part of the calling that the Lord has had on my life.

Thank you for pouring out each day— these devotionals have been a blessing and a real help to myself, and my church family here in Vermont.

Ohhh…I can’t even begin to express how your heart for revival has moved me in this past 2 months! Prior to February of this year, I had never even heard of you and now I know in my heart that you are my spiritual father. I come from a family of generations of missionaries and pastors but had never yet walked in the ministry in the way that my father and grandfather had. I am a 29-year-old engineer currently live in Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii but at the beginning of February of this year, my company moved me temporarily to Manhattan.

While living in New York for the past few months a friend from Kona invited me to “The Send” to which my brother and I attended (I had never heard of the call or the send prior). The presence of God was beyond anything I had experienced in my life and then the next morning in the afterglow of “the send” my aunt (who lives in Orlando) invites me to the 11 am service at Church in the Son and of course there you were again given a message that I have now listened to over 5 times crying out for God to “Show me whats writing in my Scroll”!

I’m emailing you because I want you to know that I joined you in The Jesus Fast and have given up meats and sweets for the past 32 days. As of Monday of this week, I moved to Juice “only” and plan to do only walk for the last 3 days. During this fast (in conjunction with reading your book) God gave me a vision of an underground revival in the subways of New York City and throughout all the subway I heard an echo of worship that was shaking the foundations of the City.

After reading today’s devotional, I know that the time is NOW! This Friday night I will be in Penn Station by myself from 7pm-10pm to have an open worship night with my portable speaker and guitar calling down the strongholds of New York City! I know that God has brought me here for a time such as this to proclaim Luke 4:18 in the City of New York!

The Lord gave me an incredible confirmation this weekend when I moved into my new Airbnb that is 1 block from Penn Station (paid for by my company) and when I walked into my bedroom there on the floor was a genuine bear skinned rug. The significance of that moment was that just before the end of last year I wrote a song inspired by the life of young King David. The words are taken from Psalm 138 and is entitled “You made me BOLD” and the chorus of the song goes “you made me bold for the Loin, bold for the Bear and in the valley of my giant you said there’s nothing to fear for I am the LORD your God who made these things”….COME ON HOLY SPIRIT!

The purpose of this message is to thank you for your passion for our generation and invite you to please come into agreement with me that God will move in a mighty way tomorrow night at Penn Station!

There’s so much more on my heart but for now, I feel this is the first step towards an awakening for NYC!

Thank you, Lou, for your daily inspiration! It brings light to my soul! I pray for your ABBA Father cover you under his wings! I thought that fast for 40 days was impossible for me! But thanks to you for your anointing that was shared with many that make it possible! I am praying for the spirit of Elijah be upon me so I can fast once a month this year 2019. I am looking forward to seeing you again in the stadium in 2020 in Orlando, Fl.

Dear Pastor Lou…. This is in response to your video post yesterday, 2 November 2020 during the Three-Day Ester Fast…. 1 Kings 18:36-38. Be encouraged.

36 At the usual time for offering the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet walked up to the altar and prayed, “O Lord, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at your command. 37 O Lord, answer me ! Answer me so these people will know that you, O Lord, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.”

38 Immediately the fire of the Lord flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust. It even licked up all the water in the trench!

Romans 13:1 “Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.”

Amen and amen…. Be encouraged for this is a day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice in it!

Blessings and the Lord’s strength be with you and yours…. Amen Your brother in Christ, Duane Ashton

Lou and Family,

In 2009 my father, who was a giant in the faith and my guide unexpectedly went on to be with the Lord. His passing was life changing in so many ways for my family and me. In early 2018 I had a significant dream where I was walking through a Wal-mart in search of something. I was walking towards the front of the store when I passed a man and in passing realized, “that was my Dad!” I turned and chased him down, following him into one of the aisles. He was wearing a brown leather jacket and brown leather, non-descript shoes. Which I believe are significant of the common man (the nameless, faceless ones). I grabbed him and spun him around to face me (turning of the hearts of the fathers to the sons and sons to the fathers). I held onto him tightly (like Elisha and Elijah I would not let him go before he blessed me with the double portion of his mantel) jacket and shoes being his mantle which was that of the common man. He stepped back he looked at me without expression then turned and walked out of the store. I chased behind him wanting to follow him but could not. He walked out of the front doors into a blinding light and the dream ended.

Since then, I’ve had so many other dreams. Many with significances that I don’t fully understand yet. I seek to know God and know His ways, with all that I am. To be a Nazarite to the call. To walk in purity and obedience and to be a man of fervent prayer. With that I just want to say that our family stands with you and your team. I am part of your “Briefing” family and follow the fasting and prayer challenges you regularly send out. God bless you and all that you and Chris Berglund are doing for the Lord.

Linda

As of today, October 17th, 2020, I’m on the 25th day of my 40 day fast to end on Halloween. The purpose is to set myself in agreement through the Holy Spirit wilh all those around the world who are fasting and praying over what is happening in the world. The US election is critical, and even though I am Canadian, I believe that praying into the elections and coming against the extra witchcraft planned for this particular year, in the name of Yeshua, is critical. So far I’m the only one fasting for this in my community, but the larger body of Yeshua is the greater congregation and I’m happy to be called one of you, fellow fasters. Hallelujah!

Deborah A. Atzori

Lou, several years ago, actually during the revival on the Mott Auditiorium, you went to preach in another city, and I went with my friend Olivia. There you prophesied to me my ministry was one like Hanna, praying day and night. Since them He has called me to fast more and to take the vow of the Nazirite as in Number 6. Presently is my third time and the longest. when I took the vow the first time He gave me peace in the midst of the storm. He has blessed me so much. Presently the prophetic anointing in on me more than ever. I am on the fast over a week until the election. Praying specifically for the abortion law and for safety to the President. I love your ministry. Yehovah sent fire from Heaven in 1979 to burn my idols It is written in my book “New Life and Glory” on Kindle now on Amazon. I want to encourage you to continue for your voice will shake everything that can be shaken for the anointing is on you. I pray for your health. I am also publishing “The Lost Sheep.” and other. I a missionary of 81 years old, and serving my Elohim with all my heart. He is revealing Himself to me and will do this with everyone who will seek Him. Yehovah is LOVE. HE LOVES EACH ONE OF US, BUT AMERICA MUST REPENT. NOW IS THE TIME. REVIVAL IS COMING MUCH BIGGER THAN IN THE PAST. KEEP ON LOOKING UP, IT IS EVEN NOW BEGINNING. SHALOM

I am so blessed to have been changed by Lou Engle’s passion for souls, this nation, and to end abortion.
I believe it was 2003 that I drove from ABQ to Las Vegas to go to ICLV Holy Spirit Conf to hear Chuck Pierce. I didn’t have money so I drove all day Monday to hear Chuck, then was planning to drive home Tues. so I didn’t have to get another hotel room. I had never heard of Lou Engle who was to speak the next morning, but I thought, “Since I’m here, I should go to the morning service and then leave.” Well, God had other plans as that morning, Lou preached such a powerful message that we were all on our faces for hours crying out to God for souls, this nation, to end abortion, etc, and I didn’t leave the service until 1:30 p.m. I was so moved that I couldn’t leave so I went back that night and I finally walked out of the service after weeping for hours at around 10 p.m. I drove all night to get home and wept and prayed all the way, stopping for a quick nap in Flagstaff in a parking lot. That was the beginning of my journey. I went to the Call in San Diego, drove to Col Springs to Dutch Sheets church and heard Lou again, as well as all the powerful men of God. I went to Azusa Call in LA in 2014, I think, and that was transforming! Every time we cried out in repentance, it poured rain! WOW!! I will never forget it–repenting to the African American, First People, Hispanics, and the Lord and it was the best day of my life.
Young people, get on God’s side and cry out! I am now 72, and will not stop crying out to end abortion. I was in San Francisco when Roe v Wade was legalized, and was a missionary in Fillmore, with the Baptist and did not even know about abortion, what it was, etc. I had not heard the word until 1972. Planned Parenthood was already performing abortions in SF, not only destroying babies lives, but mothers’ lives. This must end. It is no longer 60 million–it’s probably 100 million. Let us turn to the Lord with all our hearts and bring an end to abortion and the beginning of a great revival.
I just heard Lou and Sean’s interview–everyone needs to watch it. I have been a teacher in high school as I did all this travelling and I am retiring soon to do full-time work for the Lord–whatever it is! God bless you!!!! Diane

I left The Send Orlando 2019 with a mandate. I fasted 53 days. Revival broke out in my son addicted to pills for 15 yrs. A call came on his life. I stand with you in this fast for our nation to break out like my son did, with repentance and turning to back to God Jesus you are our only answer. With you Lou. #40days

Deb

I am on my 39th day of fasting with water and communion daily. When God led me into this time he encouraged me with this, “Consider this time beauty treatments, as Esther had before meeting her King. This is a time of consecration when I am making you without spot or wrinkle. This is the filling of the lamp with annointing oil. Readiness, preparedness leading to a great outpouring celebration on Pentecost.” I did not know my 40th day would be on Hebrew calendar Pentecost. God has let me experience so much pertaining to sowing in the time between Passover and Pentecost. He told me that what is sown in this 50 days will experience abundant multiplication in the season after Pentecost. Our home church has boldly reached out to the lost of our community in the midst of lock down. Every week God gives me something to sow into the body that meets at my house. They. In turn, bring back testimonies of how they multiplied the sowing and saw God bless others.
I heard you say you may go 100 days. I will seek God to see if I will join you in that. Blessings!

During the fast the Lord went to a level deeper than I have ever been. Even things I had dealt with and broken in the past and forgotten, came up in dreams from God. He’s been working in us deeper, going past the place of functioning well for His Kingdom, and going after every single buried thing apart from Himself. He is cleaning up and building up his Bride. He led me to pull all weeds, cut down all poisonous trees and cut out all roots and stumps from my garden both in the natural and the garden of my spirit and heart. It’s God’s timing that the fast and quarantine were aligned at the same time. Sequestered with the Lord, He drew us deeper into his chambers and we have been being transformed for the work his glorious Harvest, which I believe we are on the he cusp of.

Angélica

Cuando escuché a mi hija hablar del movimiento de Jesús y lo que se iba a iniciar fue como si en ese momento una nueva atmósfera me envolvía y sólo entendí que cada una debemos orar por 5 almas para salvación y que son miles los que vamos a ayunar por 40 dias.
El Señor se encargó desde ese momento que susurró a mis oídos. Su compañia fue crucial para pasar cada tentación y sentir su presencia.
Cada día descubría hasta hoy un hambre espiritual y sentir cada vez correr en mis venas su palabra.
Esperar a El su despertar a cualquier hora y abrir la puerta para que entre a invadir este hogar ha sido un honor inmerecido.
Su mover, que ha despertado y hablar más que nunca con aquellos que al igual que yo estamos recluidas, encarceladas en nuestros hogares y solo podemos salir al trabajo. Gracias Señor por esto vivido.

Ligia

Tenho um chamado profético para as nações e no dia 7 orei a Deus que me confirma-se mais uma vez sua promessa. Na madrugada do dia 7 para o dia 8 sonhei que era convidada a pregar e Deus me dizia que eu tinha que pregar João 3:16. No devocional do dia 8 falou sobre o versículo e sobre ele ser o grande tema da terra. Foi incrível isso. E também no terceiro dia de Jesus tive um sonho dizendo que o anticristo já estava aqui e eu via o papa com ele em uma reunião. Vi o lugar da reunião e um mês depois um amiga me mostra um vídeo onde o lugar, o papa e o anticristo eram os mesmos do sonho. Fiquei impressionada. Não assisto TV por isso não tenho essas informações. Foi incrível

Linda

I’ve had quite a few dreams during this fast. I wanted to share 2 briefly as I believe they confirmed the fulfillment of the purpose of the fast.
I dreamt my Mother and I were walking down the sidewalk next to a highway when a huge church with beautiful windows dropped out of the sky and landed right next to the sidewalk (not set in with a parking lot or walkway in front of it). We were going to go in when a withered desperate woman knelt at my feet crying and she put my hands on her head. I could feel how she felt and I knew what my God was going to do for her.
Also I dreamt my husband and I went up to an old man to buy his huge motor, he said that it was really fast and powerful and he was selling it because he was upgrading. He said it was a LandRover. I looked in my hands and I had rolls and rolls of money.
I am new at interpreting but I know we were praying for power and the second coming and I know the world is so desperate right now, God is going to do amazing things!

Karine

I wish to share with you a dream that I had at dawn from the 30th to the 31st of March, a period in which fasting was taking place. I dreamed that my husband and I were on a beach. We saw many people on the sand, each with their own surfboard. There was also a teacher and he was teaching all those people how to surf. In the dream, I was surprised because I thought surfing was easy, but I saw the teacher teach the inclination of the body and several other details. So, I said to my husband, our surfing needs a lot of technique. At that time I don’t know if sleeping or awake I understood what that dream meant. I heard, it’s the third wave. I understood that this was the preparation for the third wave of revival. We are being prepared for God’s third move on earth and that move is coming.

Wesley

I never felt anything so good in my heart, the presence of Jesus, Jesus rescued me I thought he would not accept me anymore, but whoever was not accepting him was me, this love rescued me and today I have life eternal life

Andy,Marion & Mandy

This is our story:
Our family migrated from the Philippines to the United States in 2011, back in the Philippines we are blessed beyond measure to be a part of “The Call, Jesus Revolution” back in 2004, after the gathering, the revival fires spread across neighboring towns and cities and regions. Our little church in a small town was set ablaze with revival fires, the visitation of the Holy Spirit, a mighty move of God that released mighty encounters (dreams, visions, angelic visitations, baptism of the Holy Spirit, gifts, signs, wonders and miracles) that marked us for all eternity. From then on the fruits are multiplied as numbers grew and a Jesus movement was birthed through a glorious increase in men and women, young and old hungry for God, seeking His face,
an expansion of prayer movements, missions movement, revival fires poured out among the youth and churches and it spread quickly like wild fire. Coming from a Southern Baptist background from the southern part of the Philippines, when we moved to the U.S we lived in Southern California for a number of years, and God moved us to South Texas, a mighty man of God, a mighty intercessor who is also our mentor and spiritual father declared over us a prophecy of the “Fire from the south” and we have been marked to carry that fire wherever we go. We are now residing in Dallas (North of Texas) prior to our move we received a vision of a harvest field and we knew that God is about to re-locate us soon and here we are today living out the call God has placed in our lives and our family and we intend to run with perseverance until we finish our race.
Poppa Lou Engle along with the other Generals of God – you have been a huge part of our lives and we thank Abba God for your life, your call, and your obedience and we hold you up and your team in prayer as you fulfill the mandate of Heaven in this realm. Abba God has been meeting us powerfully during this Fast than ever before, dreams and visions and mighty encounters are pouring out on us like rain. The hunger for intimacy with Jesus grows deep with each passing day.
Towards the end of this Fast we heard Abba God say “sow your seed on good soil and you will reap a harvest, watch and see what I will do” along with this Scripture in 2Corinthians 9:10-15. We felt it strongly that Abba God is leading us to partner with you and your ministry for the End-time harvest. We Love you & we will continue to stand with you, believing and pressing in to see the fulfillment of every Word and every promise, for He who began a good work in you is Faithful to complete it (Philippians 1:6).

Donna

Hi Lou, this has been a life transforming experience for me. I thank you for encouraging the church on this 40 day fast. I have been seeking the Lord with all my heart for the church our world and nation as well as personal breakthroughs and desires of my heart to walk in the Spirit and for His gifts for His namesake so the gospel is proclaimed. God has caused mountains to crumble and by faith I believe He is granting me the desires of my heart. I fully believe He is going to pour out His Spirit and I will stand in praying for it. I am so thankful to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Ana Carolina

Bom… Foram 40 dias maravilhosos, de experiências incríveis, tive sonhos sobre meu ministério, tive revelação da parte de Deus, senti o Espírito Santo profundamente em minha casa, tive também momentos difíceis, mas com a ajuda de Deus eu venci. Eu me sinto mais cheia de Deus e não quero parar por aqui, eu quero mais, muito mais. Nestes dias eu aprendi a ouvir a voz de Deus e indentifica-la. Cada devocional foi uma injeção de ânimo e fé! Glória a Deus por estes dias e Glória a Deus pelos dias que ainda virão! Que Deus derrame Seu Espírito por sobre toda a terra!!!

Roseli

Oi, Lou!
Graça, Favor e Paz!
O Senhor Jesus me encheu com Seu amor pelas Almas!
Desde o dia 08.02.20, que assisti ao The Send Brasil, tenho obedecido ao IDE, de modo diferente, com mais tolerância e perdão, com menos pressa de “viver a própria vida”. Tenho levado a Palavra de Salvação e glorificado a Deus, em Cristo Jesus. Hoje, participo do último dia do Jesus fast, nesta convocação santa! Aleluia 🙌🏽 Maranata✝️🛐 Shalom 🕊️

Daniel

Hola mi nombre es Daniel, quería contarles que hoy terminaremos el ayuno de Daniel con mi esposa y dos parejas más. Sentimos que Dios nos a dado la gracia del ayuno, así que ya estamos proyectandonos a un nuevo ayuno de 40 días…tenemos la idea de poder seguir perfeccionandonos en cada ayuno que hagamos…fue una grata compañía la de tener todos los día un devocional de Lou…muchas gracias que el Señor los siga bendiciendo! Cuenten con nosotros para cualquier ayuno que planeen.

J’aime Jesus

Hayley

I did a 40 day fast last year (2019) that started March 13. My husband did it along with me. The day we started our 6 year old, unaware of the fast we were starting, told us she had a dream that her and her sisters were behind us as my husband and I “fought the bad guys”.
We saw great victory through the fast, my husband fasted for a co worker to find her biological mom, and she did! But one of the most beautiful victories we wouldn’t learn about until November 2019.
Right after this 40 day fast ended, the Lord called me into another 40 day fast for two friends who were trying to save their marriage after adultery. After that fast was over, the wife, who had been the one cheated on, experienced freedom and healing from wounds and they are doing great today!!!! Praise You Jesus!

Our 4 year old kept telling us she was going to have a brother.
Then we lost two babies in the fall; after we felt the Lord say it was time for another baby.

2 days after we lost the first baby…we received the call we were officially licensed foster parents!

And in November, 3 days after we lost our second baby…. we received a called…about a 7 month old baby boy who needed a foster home.

We learned his birthdate: March 31.
He was born during our 40 day fast.

And now we are in the process of adopting him!!!!

He can do more think we think or imagine.
Fasting and prayer is such a beautiful gift we get to have.

Linda Fisher

Just thinking about Jesus spending 40 days in the wilderness, fasting. Of course none of us had any idea we would be isolated during this time! I am trusting that God will do a mighty work in me and all of the Body during this time.

Amanda

Started the fast through IHOPKC and God is really showing me that in him and through him all fear is gone and the burden of how much this world needs Jesus and how to show love to the lost!

William Eberle

What you are doing is contagious! I began my forty day fast on March 17 and didn’t even hear about the Jesus Fast until I was seven days in! Day 4 was really miserable; for half the night, the Devil was twisting my arm to quit. In the morning I told him, borrowing from the Navy Seals, “I will die before I quit!” Press on!

Marc

My eldest son (18) talked to me yesterday about talking to Jesus again. He said with this time being at home etc. he noticed he’s been selfish and that he felt like the Israelites just going to God when he needed something. But he recognize he’d drifted etc. And last night he voluntarily picked up his bible which he hasn’t done for a long time. I’m thinking and hoping and praying that his younger brother (15) will see this and pick up his bible again. Years ago when they were still small we had a prophecy over them that they were “Sons of thunder”. They used to prophecy and tell people about Jesus as children.

Daniela

Realmente ha sido un tiempo de despertar un deseo por más de Dios y dejar a un lado mis pensamientos, deseos, y anhelos por buscar lo que Dios quiere, en mi ciudad, nación en el mundo en mi vida .

Paola Arevalo

Hi, I’m Paola, I’m from South America, I’m living in London Ontario, without knowing about this fast or ministry in February. God took me to start a fast that will start on March 1 to focus with the call to evangelism and youth and today I find out of this world fast and I am amazed because God is not of any denomination but of the hearts that love and serve him passionate for the kingdom and the gospel.

Tina

Hi Lou,
I’ve never heard of you before this morning when an elder in our church forwarded your email for an urgent call to a global 3 day fast. I must tell you, that I nearly lept out of my bed where i was reading the email on my phone! Why? Because, in being away from my family this week so I can work, I had been texting them in a group chat, different challenges that I was personally being called to during some prayer and bible reading time. But on Tuesday evening, around 9:00, I texted them and told them that as i was reading in Esther, chapter 4:15, concerning her request for the Jews to fast for three days for her, I asked them if they would be willing to consider following the call. So Wednesday morning I began my fast. By the end of the day I felt that to fast for three days may be a little over the top, so I resolved to break my fast Thursday morning – the morning I received the forwarded email. The morning I lept from my bed and knelt on the floor in tears. God – you were speaking to me!!! How humbled I felt to part of what He is doing. I thought you would want to know that He is speaking this word all over. Thank you for following through on those promptings!!! I will never be the same. Tina Horning, Ephrata, PA

Hi,
I went to GBI ( Ps. Dr. Ir. Niko Njotorahardjo ) Jakarta, Indonesia.

Right now i’m doing 40 days of Jesus fasting.
And only drink water for 40 days.
Today is my 31st Day of water only fasting.
I have another 9 days to go.

By the Grace of God and by The Holy Spirit…
I dont have any problems physically and I’m very fine and healthy.

I read The Bible everyday and praise and worship.

Please pray for me for this victorious moment.

Jesus bless you…

This fast with the focus on prayer has really opened up the word of God. I’m like a spiritual child who has leanred to run! The Holy Spirit is moving, and my husband’s ankles were healed after I laid hands on him. Luke 4:18 Thank you, Jesus!

When I heard about the Jesus fast/40 days, I thought it would be something that I would participate in.  I even put it in my planner for 2020 and blocked out those 40 days. But, by the end of the year/2019, I thought maybe this wasn’t something that I should participate in. However, sometime in mid January I begin to feel that perhaps the Lord did want me to participate in the fast. So I asked for a confirmation and on February 9th I had a very profound dream that woke me up feeling very strongly that the Lord was directing me to do so.

In the dream, I was with three very prominent ministers among other evangelists, leaders and believers. I remember telling them in deep distress (especially to the three of them) that we needed to pray but to fast as well. I felt a very strong sense of urgency about this. The scene changed and I saw myself pounding the floor on my face/knees crying out to the Lord for mercy, repentance and to pour out His Spirit upon our nation. I felt such a deep stirring/mourning within me. As I mourned and travailed, (I literally began to moan in my sleep) I suddenly saw the Lord approaching us as we continued crying out to Him. It seemed like the more we continued to cry out, pound the floor, weep and travail, the closer He drew to us. It was really stirring and I felt such a sense of the fear and terror of the Lord on me. I didn’t realize it but My wife was hearing me moan in my sleep and woke me up because she thought I was having a nightmare.

I am taking the dream to mean that the Lord is definitely directing me to join this fast. I have given the invitation to those in our community here at the Orlando House of Prayer and fellow minister/pastor friends of mine.

My first 40 day fast was in 2000 when Bill Bright called for 200,000 intercessors for repentance and revival and here I am 20 years later once again going others across this nation and around the world. Thank you for allowing me to do it again. Lord Jesus Come Do it Again. Chuck Norman

Saved from a bar stool to a church pew 30 years ago and my heart cry has been for The revival of all revivals. I had the privilege and honor in a mysterious way to be at Jesus Culture for their first 3 years in California. As you know Banning has been longing and equipping multi generations to be a part of HIS Move in us first then through us….. what a great time to be alive…
Praying and fasting for the explosion to have such a rippling effect. You Lou are a warrior and I hear HIM say…. great job fine and faithful servant… jan Bailey

Im stanly, from Canada, we do a ministry called as Ark of God Canada, upon a divine calling from Lord to equip people for a revival by ” connecting people with God” . Lord has been directing me to pray for 40 days from past days and weeks and today ie 26th February, i saw the YouTube video from engle ministry for a 40 days fasting call. Thank God for His confirmation and plans.

I was abused by a Satanic cult and developed multiple personalities. I became a Christian at 18. I was a bisexual & lead an occult group among my friends. Jesus spoke to me one day. I knew it was Him, though I don’t know how. He pursued me. I gave my life to Jesus in my bedroom. I was changed instantly. I was beat up & kicked out of my home following my conversion. It had no impact on me! Jesus was my everything! I have integrated all personalities & was delivered from demons. I Was also delivered out of drugs & alcohol. I am now happily married 25 years. We have 5 beautiful children & one granddaughter. I help lead a women’s group in teaching & prayer. I have helped others get free from the occult & occult curses. Jesus is the name above all names! Don’t give up! No matter how big your problems or issues are. God knows & He sees you & He loves you!

Jessi

Like Paul, I have a past which includes undeniable sin, physical chains, and prison. I have a calling for writing and teaching the message of Christ. For me, this fast is a declaration of victory over addiction, to cleanse me of toxicity, and propel me into my calling.

Neldian

Last year I had done the 40 days Jesus fast after going to The Send in Orlando-Fl, and through the process of fasting I was free from depression, one of my friend that done with us the 40 days fating heard that the Lord told her that I was being free from the spirit of depression ! Praise the Lord for that !

A friend invited me to the 2019 fast. I had never been able to really fast, so I felt encouraged to be fasting with someone else. The fast was not smooth, but on the 7th day of the fast, I had a great encounter with my Daddy, speaking to me in an audible voice. I also did not know that the fast was opening new doors of fasting in my life! Now I have the grace to fast more and longer. Glory to God!! I can’t wait for the “Jesus Fast” to begin. I have expectation of more intimacy with Jesus.
I thank the LORD for this ministry.

I came from a extremely broken home my mum left me when I was Only four years old, my dad was a really bad drunk and was violent, I was never allowed out , I felt like a prisoner life was awful I hated my entire existence at the age of 11 I built the courage up to run away from home and I never went back ever, I lived on the streets for 10 years whilst spending some time in prison mainly due to my severe drug alcohol addiction I also went from foster care and various children’s homes not settling anywhere constantly feeling empty and broken. Fast forward a few years and I was at my worst on the verge of a nervous breakdown I couldn’t function with drugs or beer and my life was in bits and all thought about doing was ending it all, I ended up climbing over a motor way bridge when I was 21 with the aim of taking my own life, but Jesus had a different plan for my life about 12 months before going to the bridge my best friend overdosed on drugs and and nearly died as a result he found faith and started going to church. One day he pulled me on the estate where we are both from and told me that Jesus loves me I was dead in side and had no time for religion or God but out of respect I smiled and just walked off, right back to the bridge it was about 2am in the morning with not a soul in sight as I am about to jump when suddenly I hear the voice of my friend in my head saying Jesus loves you and at first I was like wow I’m totally loosing my mind but then I heard it again but this time I heard it in my heart and something powerful happened that night on that cold dark scary bridge I had a encounter with Jesus , he saved me he really touched my heart in such a powerful way and has been blessing my life ever since I have now been clean for 22 years I am married with 5 children and 4 amazing grandchildren with another on the way, God has called me as an evangelist I help to pastor the local church which I belong to alongside with my wife Lesley. I have such a great hunger to preach the word of God and see the captives set free and the world changed for Jesus , I am so thankful for what God Has brought me from and I am so privileged that He chooses to use me in different ways to share his amazing Gospel one of the scriptures that really connects with my spirit is Jeremiah 29:11 for I know the plans I have for you Lee says the lord plans to prosper you not to harm you but to give you a Hope and a future.

On December 2018, I was randomly searching for a teaching video to watch on YouTube by Lou and one video popped up that was no coincidence. It is called, “The Nazerite Vow” and what changed my life was when he said, “Oh, God, raise up nazerite parents who will raise nazerite children”

As I listened to this great man passionately teach, I desired to do a 40 day fast starting the day of my birthday in January (the following month).During the fast I specifically asked the Lord that our next child be a son. 2 months later I found out I was pregnant!

During my 6 week scan I was told there was an empty gestational sac that they thought either I lost the pregnancy or I was not pregnant at all. I told them, “oh, I am pregnant and it is a son.” I also had confidence my pregnancy was fine because 4 weeks before my positive test the Lord told me his name which is Hawaiian and his name means:

“A fearless warrior that moves like a cool wind (breeze) over the mountains”.

When I was 8 weeks pregnant (around the time my son showed up on the ultrasound to the surprise of the doctor who thought he didn’t exist) I asked the Lord to confirm the name he chose for our son – that night He gave me a dream…

I saw a mighty/intimidating man to behold with very dark red, leathery looking skin (he obviously spent a lot of time in the sun) and very long (almost to his waist), thick, black hair surfing on a surfboard made out of Koa wood, on a tsunami wave that looked to be massively hundreds of feet high!

This wild man was surfing with total ease toward an island covered in mountains and on this island were many demonic giants, as he surfed his eyes never dropped/broke focus off that island, he kept staring it down.

This tsunami wave was not water but a angelic host of warriors and the wind blowing through the mountains on the island were from the wings from this host… the closer this surfer came to the island the more violent the wind, the more violent the wind the more these demonic giants were being tossed around like rag dolls against the mountain sides – they had no control over themselves and were at the mercy of this wind and the wind was merciless.

I asked the Lord who this man was and He responded:

“He is your son. He will have the heart of a Nazerite – consecrated to Me and he will be a mighty intercessor that will bring down the high places. Raise him accordingly.”

Before I woke up I heard in the dream the chorus of a song i first heard during my fast watching a the Azusa Now stadium meeting where Native Americans sang this song, which I heard in my dream:

“When the wind of the Spirit blows, warrior, come on and ride the wind…”

Thank You, Mr. Engle, for being so faithful to the Lord and teaching about fasting and prayer… it has changed my life!

Patricia

I am from Brazil and after participate the Jesus fast last time I had so many breakthrough in my life, family and ministry. I am excited for this next year.

Carina

I would like to share my miracle story with others to help inspire them and give them hope it’s a way of me paying forward.

My name is Carina Imbrogno and I was born in 1974 in Buenos Aires, Argentina to Italian immigrants. I was born with a rare genetic disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome kyphoscoliosis type, but it was not diagnosed until 2015. This illness caused me to have severe scoliosis kyphosis since the age of two. I am the youngest of eight children.  We were four girls and four boys.  My oldest sister died from Leukemia as a toddler.  I grew up with a very difficult father.  I realized years later that my father was always ashamed of me because of the way I looked. Growing up I was also bullied and teased by other kids due to my very prominent rib hump.  Having many surgeries and wearing orthopedic braces wasn’t easy! 

I began wearing orthopedic braces and body casts from the age 2 to the age of 11 and then again as an adult.  I had my first open back surgery at 10 years old.  My spine was collapsing so fast I was having trouble breathing.  The doctors explained to us that I needed emergency open back surgery  because my ribs were collapsing on my lungs making it difficult to breathe.  I had a curve of 89 degrees and another curve of 56 degrees. Doctors explained to us that I have a deadly type of kyphoscoliosis and without surgery I would die.  I had surgery and had a rod put in to stop my spine from curving any further. 

Unfortunately I had complications.  A few days after being sent home from the hospital I developed a very high fever.  I went to see the doctor and he discovered I had a massive infection from the surgery. I almost died from this infection which left me hospitalized for three months.  Fortunately the infection finally healed but over time the rod that was put in as a child began giving me problems.  By the time I was 18 the rod had somehow moved out of place and doctors think it was causing my migraine headaches.  I finally had to go for another surgery to remove part of the rod.  My migraine headaches finally went away. However I struggled with my severe and painful rib hump and was always fearful that I would never find anyone because of the way I looked.

In 1996 I was accepted to go to school at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City to study textile design.  I graduated in 2000 with a grade point average of 3.8.  My art teacher Susan Rietman who I am very close to always supported me in my work and motivated me to believe in myself.  Shortly after I graduated I met someone and got married but, sadly found myself in an abusive relationship.  After I separated from my abusive husband I was diagnosed with endometriosis. I had five abdominal surgeries for this illness which resulted in more complications.  It was a very painful illness to endure.   During this time I had a dream of God telling me that I would go through many difficulties but I wouldn’t die and He would always be with me. In late 2004 I had a surgery to correct my prominent rib hump but it was unsuccessful and caused my spine to collapse at a fast rate.  I have a very rare and aggressive type of kyphoscoliosis. The doctors told me they couldn’t help and that I would end up in a wheelchair and then die. I remained bedridden and highly medicated to stay alive.  By 2006 I had a side curve of 115 degrees and a concave curve of 120 degrees.  I felt hopeless and very scared. No doctor would touch me because my condition was so severe and complex and I only had State insurance which doesn’t cover a $500,000 plus surgery.

One night I had a dream of a white light-filled Being who put His hand through me and straighten my spine.  Afterwards in my dream I stood up and walked away.  Two weeks later I found the doctor who saved my life. My oldest sister Ana took me to Texas where this doctor was able to correct my collapsed spine and rib hump. I have two rods and 26 screws holding my spine and had nine ribs cut and reduced in size to minimize the rib hump.  I grew five inches from the surgery.  This was a miracle for me.  The success of my operation was called a miracle by Dr. Shelekov and his entire team who preformed the operation. I am forever grateful for what he did for me. Unfortunately he passed away two years later.

After the spinal surgery I was doing so well that I was able to take a trip to Argentina to see my parents.  I especially wanted to see my mother who hadn’t believed I was well.  Unfortunately a couple of years after my surgery I started to suffer from severe depression and anxiety.   I had never felt this way before.  The doctors eventually  discovered I had ovarian failure and was going into early menopause. There were no medications I could tolerate due to the many side effects and sensitivities I have.  At this point I was 33 years old.  I was living in my brother’s basement at this time and my unmedicated depression and anxiety got so bad that I spent four years feeling hopeless and bed ridden. The one person who gave me hope was Father Frank who visited me.   In 2013 I went to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota where they discovered I had pelvic floor muscle dysfunction which added to my IBS making it hard to go to the bathroom.  

Amidst of all this suffering one day in 2013 I got a letter in the mail saying I was next on the list to rent a small apartment for people with disabilities in Stamford, CT.  The news made me so happy because I had waited for eight years for this opportunity, but at the same time I was scared due to my many health issues.  By October of 2014 I was so ill that I wasn’t able to drink or eat and weighed only 92 pounds. I remember calling my college professor Susan Rietman who advised me to come to Mount Sinai where they were able to find a treatment that I could tolerate.  Another miracle. I spent my 40th birthday in Mount Sinai hospital.  At this time I was praying to God and I promised Him if He saved my life once again I would start drawing and painting since art was always something I wanted to do.  After a few weeks I began feeling better but just a few days after being discharged from the hospital I came down with a pulmonary embolism and once again landed in the hospital.  Doctors warned me if the blood thinners didn’t work I could die. I was petrified but I kept thinking about my dream with God and somehow I knew I was going to be okay.   

A year before when I watched a movie called Heaven is For Real I was introduced to the artist Akiane Kramarik’s life and work.  This child prodigy inspired me to do art, especially to paint.  Her story about meeting God helped me to see and believe that my dreams where for real.  

As soon as I was better a close friend of mine David Anderson helped financially to buy art supplies to start my art.  He always believed in me even when I doubted.  I began to teach myself how to draw and paint. I am mostly self taught in fine arts. I should mention that for me learning is a true challenge because I have Attention Deficit Disorder and Retention Deficit Disorder, two challenging learning disabilities. I’ve discovered that I am able to learn best hands on.  So for the past four years I’ve been drawing and painting in different mediums such as gouache, dyes, watercolors, color pencil, graphite, acrylics, oils and pastels. Because of my disabilities and limitations I work a lot from photographs. 

I started doing portraits after I began volunteering in a daycare doing arts and crafts with children once a week. They inspire me to draw and paint them.  I also draw and paint animals.  I also love to paint animals, including people’s pets.  I work with a lot of details so my work looks highly realistic. I have a true passion for what I do. I have entered over 10 juried exhibits where my work was accepted in all the shows. In January of 2017 I won third place at the Stamford Art Association.  I entered the very first portrait I ever did which was of my mother, who sadly I’m losing to Alzheimer’s disease.  Winning with the portrait of my mother meant so much to me.  I went on to win first place with the portrait of Jaden in graphite at the Rowayton Art center. And I won third place with a graphite portrait of Melissa. My accomplishments have made me work ever harder.  My story was published in a Spanish newspaper called La Voz and most recently it was published in English and Spanish in a magazine called Latin Colors..  You can go to the following link,‭Carina Imbrogno, Artist and ‬Champion of Life – Liber-Art. 

I’m very grateful for the connections I’ve made through Instagram.  I got very inspired by a friend on Instagram by the name of Richard Macwee who is based in Scotland and is an amazing wildlife artist.  His work inspired me to continue drawing animals. I also feel very grateful and blessed to have migrated with my famliy to the USA where my life has been saved so many times.  My goal is to eventually teach what I know and to keep getting better and better at what I do.  I am open to trying different techniques. I have my studio is my small living room but I hope to one day have a studio away from my apartment.

I dreamed on 4-6-18 that I received a phone call from a man who said his name was LEM. A lot was going on around me and I couldn’t hear well. I said, “Do we know each other?” I was never able to hear him except a few phrases mixed with static, words like: “all over the earth”. I kept struggling to hear. The last thing he said before I woke up was: “The Story is Your Story” or either “Your Story is THE Story”.
(I had asked God to give me a dream before I went to bed that night. I had heard of Lou Engle back when my daughter was at IHOP in KC, so he was on my radar, but “LEM” didn’t ring a bell so I didn’t put that together until November-ish, 2018, when he sent out an email announcing the new name of the ministry as LEM.
Immediately, I went back and looked up the dream and realized it was about Lou Engle calling me.
In the email or on his website, he described a time away with God where he was commissioned to start LEM and the Send. I looked at the date he described of Easter weekend, and it was that weekend before my original dream on 04-06-19. Wow!!
I then attended SEND in Orlando on 2-22-19.

Moro no Brasil e no mês passado dia 18/08/19 Sr. Lou veio até são Paulo na igreja monte Sião da família de Teo hayashi , eu ouvia e acompanhava o Sr. Lou pela internet e quando ele veio eu e minha família fomos até são Paulo (Sou do interior) para o culto.
Quando o Sr. Lou em oração liberou a unção para que pessoas que estavam ali pudessem jejuar e orar eu recebi essa unção e entendi que era direção do Senhor para minha vida começar o jejum de 40 dias.
E foi o que fiz e para glória de Deus amanhã completam os 40 dias e posso dizer que nesses dias foram intensos de muito aprendizado, muita batalha no Espírito mas a Vitória certa em todos os momentos. Agradeço a vida e entrega do Sr. Lou pois através dele recebi a unção para jejuar é quando no culto ele contou sobre o livro com seu nome escrito avivamento eu entendi um sonho que o Senhor me deu há 10 anos atrás. Nele havia um livro capa preta escrito HOLY santo em inglês e quando eu abria estava escrito em português e a palavra que tinha dentro desse livro era
Lâmpada para os meus pés é a tua palavra e luz para meu caminho.

Não conhecia a bíblia na época mas quando descobri onde estava esse versículo a vida ganhou sentido.
Entendi que Deus me chamou a ser holy consagrada dedicada a ELE e foi através do testemunho do Sr. Lou que obtive a força para tal.
Agradeço imensamente de todo coração e que Deus abençoe

I had a dream of a stream of water with the words “Lou Engle” floating in it. The words were white. I then looked up Lou on the internet and began the 40 day fast. I want to say so much about what God has done for me in these 40 days. It’s been such an amazing blessing to join what God is doing. So much clarity has been given, purpose, strategy, revelation. And the time is now to evangelize the gospel. Not by might but by his spirit. I really have a deep appreciation for what God is doing through Lou. I love Lou even though I haven’t met him. The trajectory of my life has been forever changed and I am so grateful. I am so grateful to God. He is doing a mighty move in America and beyond. He is coming back for a bride that is near him, that loves him, and wants nothing but him. Ekballo! I love you Lou Engle and team I pray grace for you to sustain what God has given you. Stay in the shadow of the Almighty. Praise the Lord. Praise God!

Karina

Blessings Lou Engle!
First of all I want to thank you for your life and ministry. Thank you for doing this blog to connect with us and be all together in this fast while seeking The Father’s face and heart for this time. Knowing that others were fasting as well, brought me strength and comfort. I am too going to keep fasting as I didn’t receive the it’s time now to stop yet. I am seeking for more revelation and strategies as I also believe this 2020 is vital for the opening of new doors not only in USA but in Europe and South America. I just came from Buenos Aires Argentina at my former church and we all leaders even from Brazil and Peru , can see a huge wave of The Glory Fire coming. The same now in Europe and in USA. Most of my fast I have received a fresh awakening of the intercesor in me. For that I am so blessed and thankful! I know there’s more digging in the Spirit to do, so I will keep seeking. Thank you again for setting the example and gathering us all. Please consider continuing writing the blogs. I honestly look forward to it every day! Such a blessing! Thank you so much! Blessings! 🙏🔥🕊🌎🔥🙌

During The Send, I agreed to do a 40 day fast. This was my first extended fast so I didn’t quite know what to expect. Ultimately, I prayed that God would send more laborers into the harvest and I also prayed for my family and friends.

Shortly after I completed the fast, my Mom took a plane to visit me. Now I must make mention here that she has had food allergies to dairy since I can remember and could not eat any dairy without being in pain.

On the day she arrived, my Mom told me excitedly that she didn’t know what happened but about two weeks ago, she accidentally ate cheese and had absolutely no side effects at all! (She actually had people mess up food orders multiple times and put cheese in her food. Regardless, she had no pain or digestive issues).

I took out my phone and calculated the time. It had been exactly two weeks and two days since the fast ended.

I was and am now a more firm believer in prayer and fasting and will be doing it more often. Thank you Jesus for healing my Mom!!!

Dear Lou ,

The 40 day fast was definitely intense valleys, surrendering my flesh, submitting to God, heavenly moments and wisdom !!
I am 52 and felt called to missions since 18 years old . I’ve been on four life changing short term trips and always wanted to do more. There was always a “but God “ in the way of why I couldn’t do it.
A couple years ago I kept hearing YWAM in my spirit . I checked out there base and got Loren Cunningham’s book Is That Really You God. Every time I read it I closed it because it spoke to me. A year ago after a walk to Emmaus retreat I keep hearing “GO!”
I attended the Orlando SEND , gave God my feet !!!, committed to the fast, applied to YWAM and now enrolled for DTS in June !!
I don’t know what’s next, but I’m stepping out in faith with simple obedience . I am excited and uncertain and I know I can trust God no matter what!!

Thank you for all the fasting writings!! Powerful !!

God is so awesome!!

If there is anything, you must know about me is that I come from a Muslim Household. It wasn’t until I was 15 and then 18 when Jesus started reaching out to me. At first, I was like “why of all people would God choose a kid who is Muslim”? But time went by and have come to the realization that we are ALL God’s children. It doesn’t matter where we come from. He loves us all very dearly. And that he has plans for all of us. I was still afraid of what my father would think when he finds out I’ve converted over to Christianity. But I have to tell you that ever since doing the Jesus Fast. It has helped me in learning to have more Faith than ever. Even in very rough circumstances. And with the great values what God has given me and of the love and light he has put in my heart. I’m no longer to worry very much because God is always with us.

Ronald Holley

I did not make it through the whole fast but in the first couple of weeks, I had dreams of healing!

Cindy

God be glorified! At the end of the Jesus Fast, He delivered me from addiction to narcotics. One week drug-free today! Praise His holy name!

Alyona

God is saving my coworkers from different backgrounds and religions!

My testimony begins before the fast and during the Send. By divine arrangement, even though I was not able to physically be in Orlando, I was able to seclude myself in a room to watch the Send livestream for 12 hours. As it was unfolding, I knew it was something very important that God would use in my region. The next day, Sunday, during worship at my church, the Holy Spirit came upon me heavily and gave me a strategy to reach my city – replicate the Send here. To take the model of gathering a large group of believers and sending them into the five mission fields. That Monday, I shared this with my pastor and we’ve been moving forward with this ever since. The details are coming together in wonderful ways! I started the fast on March 1 and have felt led to extend it with Lou Engle because God had been speaking and showing me such great things!

During those first 40 days, I had a national speaker who I just met who asked me out of the blue if I was at the Send, talked about Lou Engle (they know each other) and told me to get it going in my city. I had a friend tell me she woke up one morning with two words – (my ministry) and Lou Engle and asked if I thought we should bring Lou Engle here. I have only told a few people about this assignment from God and neither of these people knew what God had already put in my heart. They were confirmations to me. I have a desire for a House of Prayer to be started in my city that would be a big part of birthing the big event that we’ll probably do next year. Another day, I asked myself, who is doing what I want to do? The answer came to me, Lou Engle. I do not follow Lou Engle or know much about him, but I was at the Call Detroit in 2011 and I know Lou gathers Christians to pray and fast for revival. That is my heart also. Another idea dropped into my spirit to gather local ministry leaders for a luncheon just for fellowship. From pondering the word “Ekballo”, we came up with a name for the Send event here, which is a synonym for Send. I had a divine encounter with someone who turned me on to Curry Blake. I’ve been praying for my son and his wife to fall more in love with God, and she just told me they are becoming more active in their church. It’s a start. During the fast I’ve read, reread and am reading: Revival Starts Here, Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough, and Azusa Street. I’ve been following Lou’s daily emails which have been encouraging and I am so thankful that God cleared my schedule and allowed me to watch all of the Send from home. My life will never be the same and neither will the believers in my region because by God’s grace, we will be replicating the Send here next year!!

I would love for Lou Engle to read this testimony. And I would love for him to come and be a part of the Send gathering here!

Jessica Coombs

Hey Lou! So this particular testimony started almost 4 years ago. But firstly, God has built my heart to love North Dakota since I was 12; that’s also when I was going through depression, self-harm, and in my freshman year, 3 suicide attempts. In the 3 years, I struggled, I had the same youth leader and she was the only adult who knew about my struggles. She covered me in prayer all those years and because of her obedience and God’s claim on my heart, I did not succeed in my attempts. The last half of high school was spent learning how Papa sees and loves me. I knew I wanted to be a servant like her. Who knows how her heart groaned for me and how glad it made Papa’s heart that she loved like that. I knew I wanted that level of intimacy with God, that I could pray and love and support the hearts of broken kids. How could I not after witnessing the power of her warfare for me?
Harvey is plagued with the strongmen of religion and suicide that specifically targets the youth. It has been that way since the earliest summer I can remember. Well, after I graduated high school, I wanted to take a year off to make a decision for college. Before I left Florida, I went to a conference put on by The International House of Prayer. During a time of intercession, God immediately told me to intercede for Harvey, ND. He said, “I will come like a deluge. Because they are my children and I love them.” I knew then that I would be there for longer than a year. Fast forward a year after moving and working at the local hospital as a CNA, it became clear to me that Papa was keeping me from seeing death and even being around it. My friends told me to ask God, so I did, and I was led to Numbers 6. The Nazirite vow was not something I remembered learning about or even paying attention to, but my eye was immediately caught by them not being allowed to be around death. Well, I took all of it literally, which wasn’t hard, until a few months later when I found my first dead patient. Then I had to chop my hair anyway because of scalp psoriasis. After that, I never heard anything else about it from God. And I had absolutely forgotten about it until I saw the chapter named Nazirite DNA.
Lou, let. Me. Tell. You.
I was absolutely shook.
Completely wrecked and exhilarated like the best Christmas morning surprise puppy times 10.
I read and reread that chapter and was so moved and encouraged. It literally opened up a new realization of my identity in Christ. This fast of mine was not perfect like I wanted it to be, I failed more than once. But your encouragements helped me seek God further when I did fail. I hope I can maintain this spirit of fasting even though it is challenging. But I welcome the challenges because I know my security doesn’t come from myself. I’m ready to embrace my Nazirite calling.

I was specifically praying for wisdom and direction over this fast for the next season of my life. Not only did God make it abundantly clear, but he also spoke prophetically and through dreams related to my calling to Brazil and Canada. Much much happened but one of the things that struck me the most was that I had been working on releasing an album for almost a year and I finally released my first song. Only later did I realize I released it on the 40th day of my fast! As Jesus’ fast propelled him into his calling, I believe this fast propelled me into mine and released God’s song through me!

I just wanted to share with you that this fast was an amazing experience and I am so very thankful for Lou, and this fast. It was the longest fast I’ve ever done and it was the most disciplined fast I’ve ever done. The end because pretty tough and at one point painful, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I see with so much clarity now. God has been moving mountains and His beauty is everywhere. When I got back from the Send I quit my job because I did not like it and the Lord gave me the grace to do it. Then, He blessed me with a great position at Daystar and then I was promoted there after a week and a half. My job is such a blessing and it’s funny because I cook in the cafe and I wasn’t able to try any of the food, just cooked it and hoped they liked it. Lol I also went to a worship night at my church and I received 5 prophetic words that are so spot on in my life. Not only that but the whole time I was at the Send the Lord was really speaking to me about His grace being sufficient. All I had to do was trust Him with everything and that’s exactly what I did and He blessed me beyond measure. I started noticing people around me who’s faith was growing and their relationship with the Lord was increasing. I can’t help but think it’s because of everyone that partnered in this fast and prayed for an Ekballo of laborers into the harvest field. I dreamed more than I’ve ever dreamed and the Lord is speaking to me about adoption and children’s ministry. I feel so refreshed and awakened. I feel like my next mission trip is so close I can taste it, I’m just waiting on the Lord. This fast was so special to me and I’m just extremely thankful for the opportunity. God bless!

Steve

Nothing dramatically changed that I took notice to, but what I did realize is how night and day difference I am when I took the time to fast for 2 weeks and focus solely on God through prayer l, the word, and fasting, compared to how I am when my focus is on the worlds distractions. I didn’t do what I set out to do in completing the 40 day fast, but a hunger for the more has been birthed in my heart that I can’t shake.

Hi Lou,

I am from Jamaica and the first time I saw you (virtually) was Jesus ’18. I was so stirred as I listened and watched you. I was amazed that there was someone that has devoted themselves to intercession and the mission and vision you articulated was so in-keeping with what I have been carrying. I had to join the SEND! I watched online and pledged to join the Jesus Fast; I had to start one week later (so Monday April 15 will be my 40th day). The devotionals were so encouraging and gave clear directives on how to pray. I have joined everyone doing the Jesus Fast in asking God to hurl forth laborers into the harvest beginning with me and my family!

God answered! He opened a door for my husband as he was asked to take up pastoral duties next month in one of the most volatile communities in our country! God is sending us to His friends; the forsaken and neglected to tell them that He cares and loves them! How amazing is this!

The objective of Treading Times is so relevant and has set a pattern for us to follow. As we prepare to go and get settled in, we will be treading on every road and adjoining communities to claim that which belong to our Father.

Blessing to you Lou and the team and I am truly inspired and blessed by your ministry. I am even paying more attention to my dreams (though I don’t always understand what they mean :-))

Patricia Moulton

Not having done a 40-day fast for more than 5 years I felt at age 72 I could not do it. Reluctantly and skeptically I agreed to do it. Previously I did juice fasts so I thought that is what I would do but it didn’t feel right. I thought it was cold soup may be a good alternative. I made onion soup. Next onion and cabbage each one was pureed. I had always said juice fast if easier than eating less but God showed me I could eat less on a fast. I was also taking a webinar class Experiencing the Courts of Heaven and got a huge breakthrough as a deep generational sin that existed in me was confessed. My assurance was that I started dreaming which was not common for me. I believe this could not have happened without the fast. Then at the end of the fast I was asked to go to Washington DC to repent with others in the court of heaven for Minnesota’s part in abortion which is HUGE in June this year.

Irene E Gallagher

I have not been on an extended fast since 2007 (for almost 4 mos) prior to The Call Nashville and it was a strict Daniel fast (vegetables, legumes, water). I also fasted all social media and entertainment and of wearing jewelry, Looking back I believe I was very legalistic about it and there was little joy until the actual day of the call in Nashville. As a consequence I would literally shudder (and internally shake) at the thought of entering another fast. The spirit of God never called me into another one either until I heard about the Jesus Fast and this one grabbed me and has been a delight for me! It’s been full of grace, felt full of ease and freedom. I have had greater personal breakthroughs and deeper encounters with Jesus. I now hunger for more for me and for others. I also recently heard in my spirit that I was being called to a life of fasting and prayer; that truly His burden is easy and His yoke is light! Then, I read of your call to embark on another season of fasting for our Jewish brethren and I believe I’m in .

I heard God calling me into a fast months before God sent out, into the world, the invitation for the “Jesus Fast” .
Pray excites me…prayer touches deep places in my spirit….I LOVE TO PRAY…I LIVE TO PRAY…BUT I PRAY AND AM CONNECTED TO ETERNITY .

I have walked 46 years reconciled to The Creator … The Eternal One because of the selflessness sacrifice of JESUS the Son of God …I have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit….Yet I have never successfully fasted for even a day …. UNTIL NOW
I came to “The Send” thinking I was to old for such an event… that it’s audience would be for younger than my children….but my hunger for more of God was greater than the lie “maybe I’m attending the wrong gathering.” …

If God’s Manifest Presence was going to be at Camping World Stadium THEN SO WAS I!

Now 40 amazing days later This temple in which the Holy Spirit dwells, that I call my body, looks very different to every person, both saved and lost, who knew me a short 40 days ago… there has been a Devine physical transformation of my body in the natural realm… and if things that happen in the natural realm mirror what has happen in the spiritual … I say “Oh, Happy Day” how different my spirit man must now look in the spiritual realm

I, like Lou, know that God has not released me from the “Jesus Fast”….so Lou I stand with you in continuing to fast

What has changed in me to this point as a participant of the “Jesus Fast”?

EVERYTHING!
And God’s not finished His good work in me yet…

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
God “EKBALLO” ME!
In Jesus Name I ask and pray Amen

Raquel

This fast has completely changed my world and spiritual life. I started the fast with a craving for more of God, a sense of desperation to see God do something NEW. I began praying with an authority I didn’t have in the past. I felt God was truly listening to my prayers and like he was writing them down. I had INCREDIBLE encounters and moments of worship in my room where I truly felt God was next to me. I had moments where I had full on dialogue with the Lord as I just sat on the floor of my bedroom asking him questions and hearing his answers. As I would go about my day I was see go through the day. As I would go to a church service I felt my worship had grown because my closeness to Jesus had grown. I truly have felt that God has walked with me throughout this fast. I’ve also been so blessed by all the devotionals and resources that have been shared through the fast. I’ve been so encouraged in knowing that thousands of us were fasting for one purpose. I’m sad because the fast is over but I know that this closeness with the Lord and this passion can be carried over and this can be my daily living! Thanks to all for putting this fast together SO excited for what is to come! God will continue to blow our minds.

(Condensed) 0n July 7th of 2007 I surrendered to Christ as a successful gay business owner in Jacksonville Fl. Raised in a Christian home, but molested and deceived, I ran from the knowledge of God for 10 years. On that night I was laying in bed with my “husband” and another lover, with money in the bank, local celebrity, and a successful business. I had Everything I thought I wanted but was empty and miserable with no peace or joy. That night I got up from bed, went downstairs, and wrestled with God as to why I couldn’t leave my business, identity, and life to follow Him. I had chosen to serve self, knowing what Gods word said, and even ignoring the logic of species procreation. The scripture instilled in me by my God-fearing parents is what Holy Spirit used to convict me. Every excuse my wicked heart could conceive as to why I couldn’t surrender was refuted with scripture. “What shall it profit a man if he gains the world and loses his soul”? “Whosever will come with me, must deny himself, take up his cross and follow me.” “There is a way that seemeth right unto man, but the end thereof is destruction” “choose you this day whom you will serve”
That night I confessed my sins, slept on the couch, and left in the morning. Today I live in LA, working as an Art Director, serving at a church plant in Burbank, but travel to sing in a gospel quartet, and act in Christian Theatre. (Currently Caiaphas at FBCJAX Passion Play) I just found out that my friend Eric Snow was a part of your prayer event on 7/7/07 praying for individuals trapped in the homosexual lifestyle. I am the (a) fruit of that night. Thank you!

Michelle

Dear Lou ,
I woke up this morning and said to myself -“i am really going to miss Lou’s devotions – maybe he will send one now and then !” I was so happy to read that you would continue as the Holy Spirit leads ! Your emails encourage focus and targets which are needed in this loud world we live in ! I am still longing for answers and His Glory to touch me . To know my purpose and calling . But as i wait on Him i will praise Him !
Thank you for all of your encouragement and leadership!

During this Fast I got off Facebook. I have not missed it I chose to not be on negative news. During this time God moved me into a house in a small town and I do not have any TV cable. I have access to Internet and choose to listen to Christian music and watch YouTube and my emails. I spend a lot of time now at the lake with God in me and waiting on his next move. This coming weekend I will be teaching at a Kairos weekend retreat for women and God has prepared me with the messages. Thank you so much for this opportunity and I look forward to keeping up with your blogs.

Erin

From the beginning of the 40 day fast it has been a mental and physical battle. But at every turn (every 10 days) the Father has been so generous with his encouragement and his love toward me! After the first quarter of the fast on day 10 my son had a vision of revival and a friends son who is 7 had a dream about me that was deeply meaningful! Halfway through the fast on day 20 the dream from the 7 year old friend about me was physically manifested and I for the first time was given the opportunity to prophesy to our church of thousands a word about RAINS OF REVIVAL! On day 30 (3/4 of the way through) God so graciously gave my son yet another vision!! This time he saw a pump track for bikes which for our family represents as vision and a promise from God and on the pump track he saw the words “quarter mile”! As soon as my son told me what he saw it I knew that the Father was speaking to me, “you have a quarter mile left!!! Go the distance!!! The promises, the vision, the hope is all still there press forward don’t give up now!” I cannot tell you how deeply personal all of this is that God would use my own son to bring his love and encouragement to me!!! Our ministry and our heart is to raise up a generation who hears and sees God and is mobilize in their faith!!! So for the Lord to use my son and a 7 year old friend To bring his words, his love and encouragement to me I’m just blown away by our God!!! God is raising up a generation that is powerful and mighty and hears his voice !! He is pouring out his Spirit on all people young and old!! Your young men will see visions and your old men will dream dreams ! It’s happening! Thank you so much for leading us all on this incredible experience of drawing closer to the Lord and interceding for REVIVAL! It’s the cry of or heart! ♥️

Nicole

Over the last 40 days I have both failed miserably and had encounters with the Lord in ways I never have before. On April 1 I committed to fast till April 30 because I felt The Lord leading me to. This morning as I was Praying Jesus showed me through His eyes what He sees. The rest of this day I have been completely overwhelmed by His presence like I never Have before. I will continue fasting and praying for America, for the lost, for our babies, for the orphans, for my City of Albuquerque and for Jesus to get His full reward!!

Nico

Hey Lou! Thank you so much for being diligent and believing in my generation! This fast has been so wonderful, as I was able to draw so much nearer to Him than I’ve been able before. Thank you for setting the stage having your ceiling be our floor!

Reading the blog everyday and believing with you for a shift in America and the nations of the earth was so encouraging and life giving!
It was so helpful to hear and understand your story, because it truly brought courage to my life! I’m bummed the 40 days are over, I will for sure, keep reading the blogs and set time aside weekly to fast certain meals.
Jesus is just too precious not to do that! I’m leaving this fast with a greater hunger to see Him and a longing in my heart to know Him more intimately, like Jesus prays in John 17.
I also declare that over you Lou! The Lord will reward years of crying out, and it will be above and beyond you can ever ask or imagine! You will be so blown away by the waves of young people entering into missions worldwide because of prayers you prayed! Thank you, because your prayer probably ekballoed me into the missions field!

Bless you and your team!

Nate

Good afternoon,

My name is Nate from the little town of Ozark Alabama. This fast has truly been nothing short of amazing. The Holy Spirit came to me in a dream and woke me from a deep sleep. This dream showed me I would be receiving my anointing but I had no idea what it meant. Shortly after this dream I was told about The Send the day before it started and I was excited but was unable to attend The Send. Thankfully I was able to live stream from my truck as I worked. The Holy Spirit filled me as I watched and moved me in a way I will never forget. The next day, I received prayer and the Holy Spirit filled me and I collapsed and in This moment He began to show me fire falling from heaven. This would began what I didn’t know would soon become my prayer for the next month. I joined the fast to seek God and what he meant by fire falling. God sent His Holy Spirit to give me a vision. He showed me a stadium full of people with lots of birds flying around. Some black some white. In the vision I am standing in front of the stadium and I began to reach out and and pray. Fire fell down from heaven. Such a pure clean fire fills the stadium. The stadium has an opposing fire who tries to over power the fire from heaven. The pure fire washes out these different black and white birds. Then a nasty looking hand rises up a grabs a white bird. As the white bird struggles and tries to fly away, A knight on a horse comes in (who is shining brighter than any thing other) in all white comes in with a sword and cuts the hand off releasing the white bird and the bird flies off. I have had many breakthroughs during this fast for the things I have been praying for.
God has shown me its time for the prayer warriors to stand up and fight for His Glory. We must release our prayers for this revival. It is time we fill stadiums with people who are hurting and need to be filled. As we started the fast I really felt he mantle of Billy Graham being passed at The Send. I don’t know how, but I will go and through prayer, I will lead people who fill stadiums to freedom in the name of Jesus!

Marilyn

The Lord has made it clear to me that He has chosen me to GO and preach the Gospel to the lost in the USA and the state and city and neighborhoods where I live. Hallelujah

Linda

I have prayed for years that Jesus would teach me how to pray. My prayers have gotten deeper but I feel I’ve not even scratched the surface. Please pray with me that I would be willing to receive the full mantle of prayer that God has for me!

Deb

This was my first 40 day fast. I was a Daniel Faster and my woman’s bible study group is studying Daniel…I love how God works…the bible study started months before The Send!!! I have felt the presence of God and been uplifted in so many ways. My Ekballo prayers have been particularly for my husband’s and three daughter’s personal relationships with the Lord. I have seen God move. I had a dream about my husband that affirmed he will be saved and on March 31st, during my early morning prayer time, I had a vision in which I saw the heavens open up, clean white light pouring out like rays of sunshine, and millions of heaven hosts descending….glory, glory, glory!!! I have never experienced dreams or visions like this before. I praise God for the journey He has taken me on…what a blessing to be a part of this Fast. Your blogs have been so encouraging, challenging, and Spirit-filled…God is so good!!! Thank you, Lou, for being God’s servant!!! Praise Him for all He is going to do!!! Exciting times are ahead!!! What a blessing to be a part of it. I look forward to receiving your blogs. Ekballo!!!

Brenda

This was a very different kind of fast for me. Each day I would ask how long am I to fast, each day I would hear today. On some days I would hear eat this today, at first I responded no I am fasting. I finally listened there was no shame or condemnation. This continued throughout the 40 days. I have been freed from my way of thinking about a right way and wrong way to fast. Each day I depended on him it became so freeing. I feel I have receive spiritual break through for myself, I see Abba as a loving , caring father . Who I can trust. I have learned a deeper meaning of obedience and received so much joy and a deeper love for those who are lost and don’t know the love of the Father. Thank you for your obedience!

Donna

I’m so thankful for the grace of this fast, and I see major shifts happening in my life and family. It’s not “looked” like I expected, like a serious fast I had in 2013. This one, the Lord is showing me how His yoke is easy and burden light – not about performance but being. The breakthroughs I am having, are, release of perfectionism, which is affecting my physical being – down two sizes. People pleasing fears, lifting, and destiny becoming clearer and clearer. The family is listening to counsel that I give, miraculous, and seeing breakthroughs happening in their life. Dealing with the core of my being on “codependent” issues, where shame is turning to double honor, boundaries being set, finding my voice, & “knowing” who I AM!!! Deliverance from eating disorder is happening naturally – as He led me to do deep personal work these many years, it’s all culminating together for MY GOOD! Truly ~ I feel and know love for myself, and loving others as I love me. Learning to operate from Abundance – not poverty lack, even in my own identity!!! One cannot give of what one does not have or have experienced!!!! THANKFUL and committed to continue for the year as Spirit leads… Donna

CLARE

I attend MPN Milano, Italy and just last Sunday we received a prophetic word, a man who knew nothing about our church told us the street address and said that it was on God’s heart and it will be known throughout the world just like the address of Asuza street for the revival that will take place here…praise God…I moved here 20 years ago from Ireland because God had given me a picture of the main square where I live, PAVIA, crowded with worshipers. Many times I have been tempted to go back to Ireland but I made a promise to God that until I see that vision fulfilled, i would stay. I believe that we are entering the beginning of this revival as our church is experiencing a visitation from the Holy Spirit weekly and lives are being changed. I praise God and I know this is connected with the world-wide church fasting, praying with passion for souls and begging God to hurl out workers into the harvest. Thank you, each and every one of you for your obedience and faithfulness to God.

Melissa

My family and I had decided not to go back to the Dominican Republic this summer on a week-long mission. The cost was a lot for the effectiveness of what 3 of us could do, and I had also decided that being a nurse, I wanted my next mission to be medical. While I was at the Send, I kept thinking that out-of-the-country missions was NOT for me. I have been organizing a street ministry here at home and helping with another community outreach to low-income areas here in Georgia which sometimes feel like being in a developing country. I saw my need here. However, for some unknown reason, I have experienced a bit of general dissatisfaction. I still didn’t think I was being called to do any additional mission. I have been fasting all along with you, reading my Bible and praying.

While in Orlando for the Send, we prayed for three hours in a restaurant with two precious friends we had only just met who were also attending the Send the next day. When we were ready to leave, we asked the workers behind the counter if we could pray for them. One defensively answered that they did not need prayer, bc they pray 5 times daily. They were Muslims from Morocco and had watched us pray together, out loud, and with their customers for the last three hours!!!!! One complimented us on the good we were doing. We had no idea!

Two weeks ago I got a call from a friend and long-term missionary. She asked me to join her on a 9 day trip to Ghana running medical clinics. Some of what we will do will be directly with the Muslim demographic.

Every door has flung wide open for me and I have not had a stumbling block about getting off work, family obligations, etc. I am going to Africa this summer for my first time ever.

Getting to do all Of this is God giving me the secret desire of my heart at a time I did absolutely not foresee. I am tearing up writing these words. God bless all of your efforts and PRAISE GOD. I am among those being sent now, although I did not believe that would be my calling in 2019.

Ryan and Randi F.

My husband Ryan did the 40 days fast. I (Randi) am currently about 11 weeks pregnant. On day 28 of the fast, we found out that the baby I am carrying has stopped growing at 6 weeks gestation and has never developed a heartbeat. I have not miscarried though and remain with the baby in my womb. As we looked at the dates, 6 weeks was the exact beginning of the fast. We are contending for life over this child, and believing God to raise it to life, start its heart beating and resume growing! We have had 2 ultrasounds, and I wait to see a Dr to tell me what they think I should do next. We are praying that medicine and science would bow to the name of Jesus. the fast is over now and we remain walking in this wilderness, contending for our deliverance into the promise that God has given us in this child. We know that in this process of contending for our child to come forth in the natural, God is also showing us that we are to contend for what he wants to grow and birth in the spirit over our city of Saskatoon, Canada. We fight for his promises, believing that he is faithful to fulfill them. We ask that anyone who reads this would join in crashing heaven for this mighty miracle. Father in heaven raises our baby to life in Jesus name. Make this heart begin to beat in Jesus name. Scatter our enemies and bring our promise to a thriving life. We call forth our child’s destiny and declare that it will not be stolen by the enemy. We’re thankful for every prayer that goes up.

Kim

This was my first 40 day fast. It was not easy but God met me in profound ways. I feel a greater sense of awareness of Him and the need to fast. Thank you, Lou for pointing us to the bigger picture and helping us find our spiritual compass through this journey. Your daily devotions challenged me and I am eternally grateful. I pray fresh fire over you and your whole team. This is a poem God gave me recently called “The Current”. It is about the prayer movement on the earth. God bless.
“The Current”
Living inside a current is a movement that demands no restraint. Pulling with such force. In its wake space and matter collide. Pushing the impossible.
The momentum never ceases. Giving way to new realms.
Living inside a current is a movement that changes the course of history. Sound and light recognize its impact. Moving with synchronized harmony through the corridors of time. Unstoppable. The current flows. Widening and deepening. It accesses difficult and dark spaces. Pulsing electrical shockwaves through time. Awakening history’s heart to its intended purpose.

Natalia Claussen

I am so happy to have joined my family in prayers. I began this fast with hope for the world but so many doubts about my own future and here I am now with so many answers and knowing that Jesus is guiding me all the way. During this fast Jesus changed the way I thought and gave me his mind, changed my heart and priorities and I believe much more is still in process. And I thank him for teaching and disciplining me. When I thought I wasn’t listening well what he called me to do and asked for help I opened a devotional with Lou praying for a Brazilian to be sent to the Middle East and that was exactly what I had been praying just minutes before I opened my email. That I would hear God’s voice telling me that I was on the right path, that I wasn’t going crazy for burning for a place I have never put my feet on. I thought Jesus had done plenty telling me that but he wanted to to make my faith grow as well so a week ago I went to a job interview thinking I was applying for a teacher’s position when He definitely surprised me giving me a coordinator’s job when I have never worked as one, the beautiful thing is that I was going through a hardcore time since I couldn’t support myself in Rio, but I stayed cause that’s where he asked me to be in order to learn and grow, and suddenly I have the means to stay until he says it’s time to go.

Debbie

I PRAISE GOD FOR THE SEND “JESUS MOVEMENT” IN MY CITY OF ORLANDO FLORIDA. THE 40 DAYS OF FASTING HAS BROUGHT REVIVAL AND A REFRESHING TO MY MIND, BODY, SOUL, AND SPIRIT. TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!

Cindi

This is not my first forty days fast but it has been significant in many ways. My husband and I are high school teachers in southern Utah on the Navajo Reservation. During this forty day fast, we’ve had several night visitors. On one occasion, I literally felt clawing across my back. We immediately went into worship and prayer! The democratic is trembling here and grasping to hold ground. We have been praying for sons and daughters in this region and have had some success but things are shifting and I know more are going to come to Christ soon. I bought a t-shirt at the Send that says, ask me for prayer and I wear it on Fridays. Four students have come to me for personal prayer! Finally, it is significant to note that my health and energy has been restored during this fast. I also have a strong sense from the Lord to continue fasting throughout this year. I’m being prompted to fast nine days at a time with a few days in between. I’m not certain why nine but I’m going to be faithful. I’m sure it has something to do with my Nazarite DNA. Thank you, Lou, for continuing your morning devotional.

Brian

The Lord has increased my sensitivity to His leading and His voice by the 40 day fast. He has used it to release more dreams from Him as well. The most special thing is, he has used it to help me love my wife and family better. Instead of me writing an impulsive text, I sense more nearly and clearly his leading on what not to write and what not to do but what’s okay to say. To love the love the Lord my God with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my mind and all my strength more and love my neighbor as myself more has been my prayer for quite sometime now and He has brought that breakthrough. Praise God! I continue to pray more for Israel, America and for this generation for revival and salvation. And I sense more authority and power and confidence He is answering my prayers according to His will. Glory to God! Amen and Amen! He truly loves us!!

Andrea Clough

I was laid off my job as a mental health therapist October 5, 2018 and was seeking the Lord to find out what was my next assignment. A recurring verse, “I know the plans I have for you…” followed me everywhere. During the fast the Lord revealed The Plan, which will require selling my home of 25 years and moving to Orlando. I am in the process of selling and know that my future and hope are “like the light of dawn that will get brighter and brighter until the full day.” Thank you for encouraging the experience – my first 40 day fast. Blessings.

AnaMaria

Today is the anniversary of Azusa Now, the day my husband, Joel, and I felt the invitation from the Lord, in that powerful gathering, to dedicate the rest of our lives to building a prayer movement from our corner of the world. We started Westlake International House of Prayer that summer and have been praying and fasting regularly since. I didn’t get to read your Day 39 blog until today, and I’m weeping as I read of your prompt to continue fasting and prayer, because I have feel that invitation also. God has used this current 40-day fast to remind me how much we want His revival and how much prayer is required. I can’t ignore the invitation, nor do I want to, even though today has been the toughest day of temptation with food – my husband bought a coconut cream pie and set it on the counter in preparation for tomorrow’s end of the fast! By God’s grace I too will press on to 2020. Thank you for your blog. It has been such an encouragement.

Matthew

Thank you so much Lou! I have been following your ministry for a while, and I have been so encouraged, but these daily devotionals during the 40 day fast have extremely encouraged and empowered me. I have been having dozens of dreams over these last forty days; that is something of a rarity in the past, and if I did have a dream it was usually one that I was relieved was not real life. But God has spoken to me so much in these days through that. Additionally, these devotionals have deeply challenged me to be all God has called me to be. That is a good thing! I am so so thankful! Praise God for your obedience and fatherly encouragement. It has changed my life. I believe God is calling me to pioneer some movements in abortion and revival, and your ministry has catalyzed boldness and urgency for this. We will contend until all the nations bow the knee in word and conduct to King Jesus.
Again thank you Lou!

Couldn’t stop praising the LORD for what HE has done during this JESUS fast movement and more to come. Expectation of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit touched down all over America and into the world. Ekballo!

So thankful to JESUS for you Lou. For your faithfulness, willingness, and obedience.

Had an amazing time with God the Father the Son the Holy Spirit!
This is my first time participating a fast with thousands of JESUS lovers. Because your daily email of encouragement and focus prayer led us all in one accord one voice. No matter what time we pray, the Holy Spirit directs His Angelic Hosts to partner with us as we pray. HE keeps them so busy that our hearts move Heaven onto the Earth. Surely every one of us has special encounters with the Almighty!

On March 21, divine encounter came and experiences of Heavenly signs, a monthly 24 hours worship night being birthed in Wenatchee WA. Expectations of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit over Wenatchee and the surrounding towns that will shift the atmosphere and its culture; reformation will happen from true transformation and, wholeness comes in many forms. Restoration of communication and relationships happened today. For me and a sister in Christ. She and I made a plan to work on our differences so we may once again, become partners in Christ as the LORD has called me to move here in Wenatchee WA.
GOD Is Faithful and HE Is Worthy To Be Praise!

Thank you for the opportunity to share my story of JESUS. I have learned so much from you dear brother Lou and would love to continue to follow your blog.

With deep gratitude first to our Lord JESUS Christ and to you dear brother Lou.
Your sister,
MaryAnn Goon

Love you, Papa Lou!!! LOVE YOU!!! On Thursday morning GOD gave me “the GOD of PEACE will crush satan under your feet”! On my way to work in Manhattan the bus I was on almost had an accident – we stopped so hard that people screamed. I was reading that verse as the bus shook. I felt the Lord show me that this word was from the Lord for me and my family, it is alive and active and kept us from that accident. That afternoon I get a call from the hospital, my father had a heart attack. I rushed home to find out he is alive by a miracle!! He went to the dr with some discomfort, as the nurse was performing the EKG he got a heart attack, an ambulance took him to hospital. I get a text about 15 minutes later, our next door neighbor who is a follower of Christ wrote: “I am with your father”. Again, I felt the Lord tell me this word from the morning “the G-D of PEACE will crush satan under your feet”. My daddy came home last night – He is alive!! I turn 40 this Friday, will be fasting till Ressurection Sunday! You’ve been a spiritual father to me since TheCall NYC in 2001. Love you, Papa Lou!! My two boys, my hubby and my parents all love you!!! I am honored to have read these daily blogs, they were fire inside of me, I will treasure them and have been rereading them. Hallelujah!! This word is for you too and all of our brothers and sisters who have joined in this fast “the GOD of PEACE will crush satan under your feet”!!

During church two weeks ago I felt God urging me to continue this fast until Easter. I have already mentally committed to this and now you issue a greater and exciting challenge even greater! I am so pleased you will continue this blog! God has spoken through it during my fasting and prayers. I have had more dreams than ever and old dreams that the meaning eluded me are now in clear view! One made no make sense until our “EKBALLO” prayers were hurled out!!!
I am excited to ride this wave until I know God places me on His shore.
Thank you for your commitment and your time to share in God’s great work. Not everyone called says “yes”. I’m so thankful you did!!!

This fast has been amazing. I have received a spiritual dream about 75% of the nights, and a number of visions and prophetic words from the Lord, including direction for my business and personal life. I have looked forward to receiving your blog via email every day and have truly cherished it, so I am very excited to hear you plan to continue sending it on a semi-regular basis after the fast too. All of you at Lou Engle Ministries are extremely loved by many!!! Thank you for all you do!!! May God’s most beloved and wonderful blessings rest on you!!!

Sharon Hill

I have been so blessed on this fast, there hasn’t even been a desire for food. My soul has been sustained. I’m so excited about what the Lord has in store for San Diego. The Lord gave me a vision a few months ago about revival coming to San Diego and I was to help usher it in. So I thank you for mentioning the book you read. Please pray for me.
God Bless,
Elder Sharon Hill

God has set me free from bondage and healed me physically and helped me to forgive people I needed to.

Sam

I have been praying for one of my friends and their family and their dad is trying to quit smoking and he just got a job.

I pray we continue with the daily message from Lou. His prophetic word can then be passed on to our intercessory prayer group and men’s fellowship. Frank Bartleman is one of many disciples of Christ to become Gods leaders in the Azusa St. revival. My prayer with fasting is this same mantle of revival in Monterey County. In these 40 days of prayer and fasting, personal calling is being confirmed along with certain financial provisions. Suggest a book, God, Gold & Glory, details on the mighty outpouring and Manifest Destiny for California, for our followers via Brother Falany.

Thank you Lou, My heart has been rekindled for God. Earlier this year the Lord told me to be concerned with souls this year. I filed that in my memory. February 14th came and on my way to work I heard about the gathering at Camping World Stadium. I told the leaders at my church and planned to attend. To my awe and delight Christians from around the world were there and my spirit was awakened afresh. I was the only one that showed up but I am glad for it. I did not want to go but I had committed myself to volunteer. I followed up with the 40 day fast and have experience spiritual warfare but the Lord was on my side. I vehemently prayed for an Azusa Street revival in my time many years ago…but now is my time. I am here and ready!
