|God laid an idea on the heart of my friends and me, and lately it’s become a reality. Â We’re calling 1 million young people to fast and pray for revival and consecration in the next generation.
Leaders are encouraging a 21-day period starting on January 5, 2020 to fast however God leads you â€“ or you can fast another time throughout the year.
The younger generations have rarely been taught about fasting and thus do not know the power of it. But if we want to see God do something new in and through us, we’re going to have to be stretched in new ways.
“When you fast, you encounter and realize the presence of God in such a unique way. My desire for all those who participate is that just as Jacob left his encounter with God having a limp, thatÂ my generation would forever be dissatisfied with anything less than a miraculous move of God.
There is a group for all 50 states and many other countries.

â€œThe call for one million young people to fast and pray is historic but must not be about any one church, leader, organization or denomination but rather a collective of believers young and old who sense that God is about to do something historic in the roaring twenties,â€ said Dr. Malachi Oâ€™Brian about the Jon Groves on Roaring Twenties Fast.
â€œThroughout history, every time there has been a communication shift, revival has almost assuredly followed,â€ said Jon Groves, who serves as one of the leaders in â€œDigital Billy Grahams,â€ a ministry project byÂ Think Eternity. â€œPeople took note of a new medium by which to flood their contexts with the message of revival.
â€œNow, with the explosiveness of new social media networks, there has never been a greater opportunity to flood the globe with the message of the gospel. Our phones have become larger pulpits than our heroes ever preached on.â€
Groves explained, â€œItâ€™s incredible to me how my generation is searching for answers and ancestors online in an attempt to discover purpose and peace. When in actuality, connectivity, purpose, peace â€¦familyâ€¦ itâ€™s all found in the kingdom of Christ.â€
He said he doesnâ€™t want â€œthe roaring 20â€™s to be just another hype decade.â€
â€œIâ€™m asking God for a fresh outpouring of His Spirit, just as he promised in his word, so that the roar of this next decade will be heard for generations to come. An awakening. A revival. More than just viral posts. An infectious thirst for depth, consecration, and commitment to Christ,â€ Groves said.
