Call to fast and letter from Nathan.”
May 23rd, 2023
To the CTM Community,
I trust that this brief note finds you all well and pursuing the father’s heart. Recently, while driving on the Freedom ranch property one of our leaders and intercessors sensed a word from the Lord pertaining to God’s desire to “heal the land.” We are in the midst of a re-zone with Sarasota County that will be taking place this summer, but in a greater sense I feel that this word is God’s desire to heal the wounds, brokenness, hearts, and minds of our nation. As ambassadors and representatives of Christ in our okios (sphere of influence), we are to use the delegated authority given to us from Jesus Christ to raise the dead, heal the sick, and cast out demons. I know that for many of us, we are in situations that need a miracle and are impossible without God. Miracles aren’t simply mystical and out of reach for us ordinary Christians, but are things that we are to cultivate, pursue, and desire in order to introduce our okios what’s truly possible in relationship with Christ. God has laid out a playbook on how to go after this in our lives:
2 Chronicles 7:12-14
12 Then the Lord appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. 13 When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, 14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
In order to be obedient to what I feel the Father is calling us to do to see healing and in our land (lives), I’m calling us to prayer and a fast for 10 days starting on Friday May 25th. We fast not to simply starve ourselves, but to focus our attention and prioritize seeing the land healed. Let’s be the ambassadors and change that we want to see in our land.
