The Isaiah 62 Global 21-Days of Prayer and Fasting
To our knowledge, this will be the first time in history that many thousands will continue 24 hours a day for 21 days in praying for God’s promises for Israel.
The uniqueness of this prayer initiative is itself a sign of the times and an acceleration of God's “set time for a generation yet to be created” (Ps. 102:13, 18).
Join over 1 million believers who will engage in prayer for Israel for at least one hour a day for 21 days (May 7-28) for the increase of God’s salvation promises and plans for Jerusalem and Israel. Some will pray alone and others will pray with 2 or more (Mt. 18:20)—virtually or in-person—in their home, office, dorm, or at their church, etc.
A collaboration of several thousand ministries—including Lou Engle, Jason Hubbard, Mike Bickle—are calling
1 million believers to participate in a global solemn assembly (May 7-28) to fast in various ways and to pray for the Lord’s purposes for Israel AND to ask Him to raise up 100 million intercessors for Israel according to His promise in Isaiah 62:6 to sovereignly “set,” “appoint,” or “mark” intercessors who will remind the LORD of His promises.
6 On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed [set, KJV] watchmen; all day and all night
they will never keep silent. You [intercessors] who remind the LORD, take no rest for yourselves;
7 And give Him no rest until He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth [at Jesus’ return]. (Isa. 62:6-7, NAS)
In the first 10 days of announcing this fast on March 7, over 300,000 were set to participate in various ways.
By May 7, this number will surpass 1 million who will engage in this 21-day fast in various ways (some will fast on water, some on vegetables, or juices, or taking one meal a day, and some will “fast media” instead of food, etc.).
WHY DO WE SO VALUE PRAYING FOR JERUSALEM AND ISRAEL?
Israel’s national repentance (Act 3:19) and confession that Jesus is Messiah (Mt. 23:39) is deeply connected to Jesus’ second coming, the Great Commission, and “life from the dead” for the whole earth (Rom. 11:15). Jesus will not return until the leaders in Jerusalem acknowledge Him as Messiah according to Psalm 118:26.
37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem...39 you shall see Me no more [a reference to Jesus’ return] till you say,
‘Blessed is He [Jesus] who comes in the name of the LORD [thus, acknowledging Him as Messiah—Psalm 118:26].’” (Mt. 23:37-39)
19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your [Israel’s] sins may be blotted out, so that...
20 He may send Jesus Christ... 21 whom heaven must receive [keep or retain at the Father's right hand]
until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by...all His holy prophets. (Acts 3:19-21)
15If their [Israel’s] being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their [Israel’s] acceptance be but life from the dead [this includes the fullness of the Great Commission]? (Rom. 11:15)
We believe that this 21-day global Isaiah 62 Fast will be catalytic in sparking an acceleration of a biblical conversation about Israel in the body of Christ across the nations in this hour. This fast will end on Pentecost Sunday, May 28.
