Just in from the loony tunes Charisma News:
Intercessory leader Lou Engle is calling the global church to a three-day “Esther Fast” in order “to take a stand against the destructive spread of the coronavirus,” he says in a newsletter. The purpose of the fast March 18-20 is “to humble ourselves, confess our sins and the sins of our nation (Joel 2), and cry out to God for mercy,” he writes.
“Then, on the third day, as when Esther went before the king, let us gather together in small or large groups and stand as the ekklesia before the King of glory!
“Let us stretch out His rod of authority out of Zion and rebuke the coronavirus in united corporate agreement, believing in faith that the storm will abate, stadiums will be filled and 2020 will go down as the year of the historic advance of evangelism and missions worldwide.”
