Preparing for the upcoming 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting for ION
July 5, 2016 - July 10, 2016Free
ION July 11th thru July 31st, 21 days of prayer and fasting*
As we prepare for the upcoming 21 days, we want everyone to understand that no matter what degree or physical mode our time of fasting takes on, it is all worthy and all needed. Each one brings their part and portion. Praise be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
*If you have health issues or are not led to do the entire 21 days Daniel Fast, whatever you decide to do, we thank you for joining us as God leads you to.
We are calling you to join in this extended time of prayer and fasting during the time frame of July 11th-31st, 2016.
Looking to God for clarity and purpose for those connected to ION and for those who are even now being prepared by God to be a part into the future. We know many more voices are needing to be heard in the orchestra of orality across the face of the globe. We also are asking for the identification of trumpet blowers, those who are and will advocate for oral peoples, mobilizers in the different areas associated with orality. Believing for new and solid Gateways to be open now and into the future for the sake of taking the gospel to where there are those who still wait. Praying for Scripture in the every and all, for full Bibles and no more Bible Poverty. For accelerated methods and accurate Bible translation for all those mother tongue and heart languages that still do not have ONE VERSE. Praying for Gateway Leaders in all 7 focus areas/gateways. Praying for those involved in orality to be fully immersed in Bible Engagement daily. To maintain the centrality of all we do to be the Bible -the WORD.
We are linking together in a united call of agreement for what the Lord says as the Waymaker in Isaiah 43:16-19, He who made a way. . . He is even now making a way in the desert wilderness and streams and rivers in the wasteland.
July 5: Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
DRAW NEAR TO ME with a thankful heart, aware that your cup is overflowing with blessings. Gratitude enables you to perceive Me more clearly and to rejoice in our Love-relationship. Nothing can separate you from My loving Presence! That is the basis of your security. Whenever you start to feel anxious, remind yourself that your security rests in Me alone, and I am totally trustworthy. . . [Read today’s full devotion in the book, “Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence” by Sarah Young (Thomas Nelson)]
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. —ROMANS 8:38–39
When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me? —PSALM 56:3–4
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. —ISAIAH 43:19

Steps Before Starting the Daniel Diet Fast -By Donna Sundblad
Reviewed by Annette McDermott, Certified in Food, Nutrition and Health
We would ask you to consider joining in a 21 day Daniel Fast. The idea of the Daniel Fast is to honor God above everything else. Why fast? The aim of a Daniel Fast is to grow closer to God. Daniel Fasts usually are called when extraordinary needs are in front of you.
We believe extraordinary times are upon us and for that we need clarity of mind. We need a more sharpened awareness of God and what God is doing throughout the earth. We believe fasting results in a greater intimacy with the Father. At this time in history we see the tasks before us as nothing more than an “only God can do” time. The concept of the fast comes from Daniel 1:8-14, “But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine. . .” The backstory to this is in 2 Kings 24:13-14.
