I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that Your will would be done in this election. Hear our prayers, God, and give us righteous leaders who know and follow You.

Will you join us in fasting from the fifth of November until the election day as we pray for God’s will to be done?

From GovPray. You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. – 1 Peter 2:9

And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?Esther 4:14

Two years ago, the Body of Christ in America approached the November presidential election with confidence and eager anticipation, trusting that God had heard the prayers and repentance of His Church. Many of us were privileged to participate in two Esther fasts: one just before Independence Day, and another between Halloween and the election. Did God hear the prayers of His people? If so, were they answered?

Do you want state prayer alerts?


He did, and they were. In Isaiah, we read,

Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him. Let him return to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. – Isaiah 55:7-9

God promises to hear the prayers of the sincerely penitent. But oftentimes, the way He chooses to answer those prayers is very different than what we might expect. Yes, God answered our prayers. But just as we are told to pray without ceasing, so too His answers are ongoing as the eternal plan unfolds. Until Jesus returns, our battle against evil persists. The stakes are high, so we continue to fast, pray and seek His will in our lives, families, communities and country. We don’t quit, and we never surrender!

Before the foundation of the earth, God determined the days and circumstances in which each of us would live (Acts 17:26), and prepared the works we were created to perform (Ephesians 2:10). In other words, we are God’s currently designated agents upon this earth. Additionally, Peter declares that we are a royal priesthood, and part of that calling is to exercise our duty to offer sacrifices of prayer and thanksgiving on behalf of a broken world. This we do in order to move His hand, thereby helping to bring about His will on earth as it is in heaven.

For these reasons, we invite you to join us as we engage in another period of targeted intercession for the coming election. As before, we will fast from sundown on Saturday, November 5 to sundown on Tuesday, November 8 (Election Day). You may perform the fast alone, or in concert with other prayer warriors on the Esther Fast Facebook page. Either way, you will be partnering with brothers and sisters around the country as we seek the Lord’s forgiveness, blessing and will for America and the 2022 elections.

Will you join us in this intercession?

Father, we bless Your name and thank You for choosing us to serve for such a time as this. The enemy has grown strong, bold and confident. He no longer hides his intent or his methods. But we stand against him, declaring that the game is not over. “We the people” were entrusted with this republic over 200 years ago, and in many ways we have not been good and faithful stewards of this magnificent gift. On behalf of our country we repent, and – with Your help – pledge to mend our selfish ways.

Indeed, Lord, we confess all of our sins, and ask You to forgive and transform us. May our lives be just and holy so that our fasting and prayers would rise before Your throne as fragrant incense. We humbly ask that You would enable us to elect righteous men and women to lead our nation. In the Name of Jesus, we bind Satan and the forces of evil, proclaiming that America is, in fact, the land of the freed in Christ and the home of those who have been granted the spirit of boldness!

Thank You for Your strength, provision, protection and courage. May we walk in truth and righteousness as we prepare ourselves for the upcoming elections and our ministrations on behalf of America, our leaders and Your church.

I am in one of the 67 Counties in the State of Florida where we have 800 plus intercessors bringing prayer, fasting and the same declarations of God’s word for the elections 1-7 November. I am sure there are many others doing the same thing for which I praise God.

Lord have Your way in these mid term elections and place the people You have chosen in these positions of power, to the glory of Your Mighty name.

Amen. For such a time as this.

How do I connect with the Facebook Esther fast page? I clicked on GovPray.org but the page cannot be found and I don’t see IFA in the Esther fast groups.

Thank you.

Is it alright to do a water only fast?

    October 31, 2022

    Hi Susan

    A full Esther Fast is 3 days & nights without food, drink or water. But for medical, occupational or other reasons, not everyone can participate to that level. In this situation, we refer to what Paul said in reference to tithing (in light of the fact that we are not under law, but under grace). “Let everyone do just as he has purposed in his own heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

    In other words, you may join us in whatever manner you choose. Jut bear in mind that this is a tough fast, and intended to be so. So sacrifice as you can, and let God fill up the rest.

    Bless you for your willingness to join us!

Mathew 17:21
There are some issues that require prayer and fasting before they leave.
I believe that this fast is so imperative in order to break the enemies control in this upcoming election.
Fasting really does move mountains!
There is a book by Pastor Jentzen Franklin, on the different forms of fasting.
Count me in !
I am part of a mighty remnant/Army of God and look forward with great alacrity, to see what our mighty and wonderful God and His Heavenly Host do with this election and it’s co-horts.
Father God,
We come to You with our voices joined together from every state. Your children are ready for spiritual warfare knowing, that we wrestle not, against flesh and blood, but against principalities/ power’s of darkness in high places. Ephesians 6:12.
We thank You Father for calling on us for such and important times as this! We know that You will always be with us in battle and that you will go before us to prepare the way and to walk through it with us.
This is such and important time Father and we place our trust in You because nothing, no one and no weapon can come against and defeat you. We give You Lord, all glory, honor and praise,
In Jesus Holy name,
If anyone has difficulty doing a total fast, there are others options.
God bless you all.
