A Call to Prayer and Fasting
Join Fellowship President and CEO Yael Eckstein, along with Chairman of the U.S. Board Bishop Paul Lanier in a time of prayer and fasting on Thursday, May 6th online on Facebook followed by a live phone-in prayer service (877-365-5237 at 7:30 PM Eastern Time). Though we will be far apart in distance, our hearts will be joined in faith as we seek God’s will. This year we are excited to also be joined by Former Member of the U.S. Congress and presently Dean of the Robertson School of Government, Regent University, Michele Bachmann.
Here at The Fellowship, our hearts are being stirred and we are being drawn to our knees in prayer, one by one. But how much more powerful would it be if we came together in spirit, during this unprecedented time of physical distance?
God is calling us to have a congregational moment together with our Fellowship Family prayer warriors for The Fellowship Fast event to pray and fast over His will for YOUR life, our holy ministry, our nation, and for the Holy Land.
Why are we fasting?
Fasting is a spiritual discipline found in the Bible — one practiced by Jesus — that helps focus our hearts on God and our minds on prayer. Indeed, Scripture records countless moments when God’s people came together for prayer and fasting in their times of utmost need. With each hunger pang, we are reminded of the purpose of our fast and driven to God once more.
How are we fasting?
Because we cannot physically be with you, we’ll come alongside you online and over the phone. God’s people will “meet” online for an all-day event on Facebook on Thursday, May 6th. At the end of the day, we will gather by phone or “meet” online for the “Fellowship Fast Reflection & Prayer Service” for a time of shared prayer requests, spiritual insights, and whatever God is speaking in our hearts as part of our #FellowshipFast.
How can you participate?
Whether you choose to fast a meal, a day, or an activity, The Fellowship is calling upon our friends and supporters to join us on May 6th online on Facebook and by phone together in a #FellowshipFast — a day of prayer and fasting.

Whether you are able to join us online or by phone — however you choose to personally fast and join us in prayer — please know that your prayers will be lifted up in “golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people” (Revelation 5:8) along with the entire Fellowship family.

Is it voluntary?
Though The Fellowship is inviting you to participate in a spiritual fast of a meal, fasting can never be forced or made compulsory. Please check with your healthcare provider before abstaining from food or drink for any length of time. Pregnant or nursing mothers, minors, and those with health conditions or concerns should not fast from food or drink. If you are not able or comfortable fasting a meal, The Fellowship encourages you to fast from an activity, like watching TV, movies, or other entertainment.
