Esther Fast for the Supreme Court Begins at Sundown

“While we do not have clarity of revelation concerning the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh, the scriptures charge us to bind (or disallow) and loose (allow) on Earth in cooperation with heaven.We are calling a three-day Esther fast to stand in the gap on behalf of the nation and disallow anyone from being confirmed to the Supreme Court who will not ultimately reverse Roe v Wade. We declare, ‘LIFE’ over the empty seat and reserve it for God’s choice. We urge you to join us – along with thousands of Believers – beginning tonight, the evening of August 18, for a three-day Esther fast.” (Lou Engle)1

“Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.” (Matthew 18:18-19; NKJV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Ask God for supernatural discernment for the Ekklesia who will be fasting and praying regarding Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation. He is a good man and a good judge and he may be the one God has raised up. Bless him and do not pray anything negative against him.
  • Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding, as you pray. Intercede as the Holy Spirit leads, but harm no person in your intercession.
  • Disallow anyone to sit on the Court that is not meant to sit there. Release the seat to the one God has prepared.
  • Declare, “LIFE” over the vacant seat.
  • Prepare for your fast beginning tonight at sundown.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, we feel the weight and the glory as we prepare for these next three days of fasting and prayer. Grant Your Ekklesia the grace of discernment as we intercede. We bless Judge Kavanaugh and say that this is not about a man, but about an open seat on the highest court in the United States. May our prayers be pure of heart and led by Holy Spirit as we lean on You to guide them. We will disallow anyone to sit in that vacant seat that will allow abortion in this nation. We will loose it only to the one that will remove this travesty from our land. We declare, “LIFE” over the empty seat. We will make ourselves ready, even as Esther was made ready. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

We loose “LIFE” over the open Supreme Court seat.

Preparing for the Esther Fast for the Supreme Court on 8/18/18

“In 1857, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered a tragic decision in the Dred Scott v Sanford case that seemingly sealed the fate of slaves in America. In spite of powerful spiritual awakenings, we failed to end the bloodshed of slavery. Catastrophe followed and new estimates show 750,000 lives were lost on the battlefields of the Civil War. We believe the same implications of God’s justice still stand today.” In the case of Roe v Wade, it appeared that the fate of untold millions of babies were sealed (more than 60 million to date)—they would be lost to abortion. To prevent more precious lives lost, God wants us to humble ourselves in national fasting and repentance and bring this to Him. “In essence, He is saying, ‘If you don’t deal with it in your courts, I’ll deal with it in Mine.’” (Lou Engle)1

“Listen to me, my people; and hear me, my nation: for a law will go out from me, and I will establish my justice for a light to the peoples. My righteousness is near. My salvation has gone out, and my arms will judge the peoples.” (Isaiah 51:4-5a; WEB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Write today’s decree on a piece of paper and hold it up to the Lord. Say, “Together with thousands of other Believers today, I am bringing Roe v Wade to Your Court, and we expect a reversal! Thank you, Lord!”
  • Tell the Lord in your own words how you feel about abortion. Cry out against it.
  • First, find God’s heart of compassion, then intercede for all those whose lives have been touched by the effects of Roe v Wade: women who have chosen to abort a child, parents who encouraged abortion, men who have fathered children and encouraged the mother to abort the child. Pray for doctors who performed abortions, together with all of their staff members. Also, pray for pastors, educators and doctors who have encouraged abortion.

A prayer you can pray:

(Write today’s decree on a piece of paper and hold it up to the Lord.) God, together with thousands of other Believers today, I am bringing Roe v Wade to Your Court, and we expect a reversal! Thank you, Lord! I cry out against abortion! (Tell the Lord in your own words how you feel about abortion.) Grant me Your grace of compassion for all of those who have had abortion touch their lives. Because the U.S. Supreme Court decided abortion should be legal in America, the enemy has fooled so many into thinking that it really is okay. Women, even Christian women, have suffered abortion. Draw them to Your loving forgiveness, Lord. Let their bodies, minds, and emotions be healed. Bring to repentance and deliver the fathers, would-be-grandparents, doctors, pastors, educators, and all others who have participated in this sin. Jesus, wash this curse away, and all the effects of this bloodshed off our nation. Thank you for your healing of our nation, amen.

Today’s decree:

We are bringing Roe v Wade to God’s Court and we expect a reversal!

Lou Engle is Calling for an Esther Fast for the Courts

“Once again we find ourselves in a moment of decision concerning the U.S. Supreme Court and the potential to overturn the 1973 decree of death known as Roe v Wade. We are urging everyone who cares about the future of America to join us in a three-day Esther fast, August 18-21 (sundown to sundown). Through the years, the story of Esther has been a dominating prophetic theme for our prayer movement, understanding the Roe v Wade is not unlike Haman’s evil edict that threatened the genocide of Esther’s people. She rose up ‘for such a time as this,’ risking everything to overturn Haman’s death decree. Esther’s story is timeless in the sense that we periodically find ourselves in similar moments that demand intensified prayer and fasting for the sake of shifting circumstances. It is our conviction that America is in another Esther moment.” (Lou Engle)1

For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

Please plan to join many thousands of others across the Body of Christ in fasting in some way for the three days from sundown 8/18 through sundown 8/21. Please seek medical advice before engaging in any fast, especially an Esther Fast, which calls for no food or water for the three days. Dutch Sheets wants your fast to be safe. Therefore, if you are able to fast on juice, fast one meal a day, fast a particular food group, or fast something like media, that is acceptable. God knows your particular situation.

  • Ask God for grace for all of those preparing to enter this three-day fast.
  • Prepare your heart by reading the book of Esther and praying the Word as the Holy Spirit leads you to.
  • Worship.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, thank you for leaders like Lou Engle who help us to know how to break national strongholds. We are willing to enter this three-day Esther Fast to turn the Court and reverse Roe v Wade. We want the 1973 death decree of Roe v Wade broken off America. Show each of us the way we can safely fast to get this stronghold broken. Those who can fast as Esther fasted, grace for that. Those that must fast in a different manner due to medical needs, grace for that. Please accept the fast each is able to honor You with. Show us how to pray in preparation as we read the book of Esther. We will worship You, Lord of Life! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The 1973 death decree called Roe v Wade will be broken off the U.S.A.!
