Sunday, March 29th - Invitation to participate in a Worldwide Fast for Relief

The president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints  just released this brief invitation to join a worldwide fast for relief from the Covid - 19 virus.  You can listen to his message here.  It is brief.  The fast is for this Sunday, March 29th.



I would invite everyone of all faiths to join in this spiritual event.  What is a fast you might ask?

  1. It begins with prayer.  We tell Heavenly Father we are going to fast and the purpose of the fast.
  2. Go without food and water for a minimum of 2 meals, but it can be adapted to your personal health needs.
  3. Close your fast with prayer and repeat the purpose of your fast.  Ask for Heavenly Father to blessing you according to His will.
The purpose of going without food is to show Heavenly Father that we are humbling ourselves before him and giving up worldly things.  We show that we are willing to sacrifice something.

We adapt our fast to our personal health needs.  Many people fast for a full day, but we rarely exceed that time frame.  Pregnant women, nursing mothers, and those with special dietary needs will sometimes just join in prayer or adapt.

As we all unite together throughout the world, as one body of people, we will be blessed.

That was a pretty awesome opportunity. I just pictured voices all over the world rising up above the globe toward God. =) Did you do the number draw and I missed it?
