the jesus fast

 

"The people who were sitting in darkness saw a Great Light, and those
who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, upon them a Light dawned."
Matthew 4:16

 
 


From the First and Second Great Awakenings in the 1700 and 1800's to the Student Volunteer Missions and Jesus Movements of the 1900's, ever great move of God has been preceded by a great movement of prayer. And historically, university campuses have been the catalytic seedbed for such season of revival. As Jonathan Edwards, father of the Great Awakening, observed, "It all began with the young people."

As Jesus went into the wilderness for 40 days to fast and pray before He "returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit," what could happen if the college students of America gave themselves to 40 days to fast and pray for another Jesus Movement in our nation?
