Today is the Day!

Thank you to those who are sacrificing their own perceived needs for food today and turning their thoughts instead to a powerful God who is able "to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine" on behalf of children struggling with what we call autism.  

Paulette Britton has organized this World Day of Prayer and Fasting for Autism Spectrum Disorders and led us with the following prayer.  I found reading it aloud more than once made it all the more meaningful and somehow revives it from the flat screen.
Today we beat on the doors of heaven. Lord God, Mighty God, as you have taken away the sins of the world, so too, do we have faith, even though it may be a mustard seed, to move this mountain of autism. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, we rebuke anything the Evil One would do to bring harm to our lives, our kids in attempt to steal our joy in You. We use our heel to trample on his head and say get thee behind me, you have no power over our lives or our children for they belong to the Lord! in the strong and mighty name of Jesus Christ, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace...and by His stripes we are healed. Amen and Amen

Be sure to visit her site to read the story of  her son, Sam, and leave a comment if you are praying along with us.  The site also gives clear and valuable information on "How to Fast" and "Why we Fast" if it is new to you.
