Global Bridegroom Fast
What is the Global Bridegroom Fast?
The Global Bridegroom Fast is a monthly, solemn assembly of believers all over the globe in unified holy abandonment to Jesus for three days. We are calling believers worldwide to join together in unified prayer and fasting for revival motivated by experiencing love for Jesus. This is not simply an event, but a new lifestyle in the grace of God. Anyone in any place can participate in the Global Bridegroom Fast. We here at the Atlanta South Metro House of Prayer we set aside these three days ascorporate fasting days for anyone who wants to participate.
Isaiah 60:2 “Behold, darkness shall cover the earth and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you and His glorywill be seen upon you.”
Millions of Buddhists, Hindus and Muslims fast and pray with an intensity unknown by many in the Western Church. In this global climate of heightened spiritual activity, the Lord is bringing His Bride to maturity by raising up a globally unified church that fasts, worships and prays.
When is the Global Bridegroom Fast?
The Global Bridegroom Fast is held on the first Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of each month. In December, the fast is extended to seven days from the first Monday through Saturday. This results in 40 days throughout the year of unified worship, prayer and fasting.

Why is it called a “Bridegroom” Fast?
Jesus said in Matthew 9:15 that the days would come when He, the Bridegroom would be taken away. He described those days as days when His disciples would long for Him in the place of spiritual mourning. Jesus said that when He was taken then His followers would fast out of desire for intimacy with Him. This fast is focused not on earning more of God but on enlarging our capacity to receive a greater experience of the love of God in our hearts. When we fast we become more vulnerable and receptive to the moving of the Holy Spirit. Through the Bridegroom fast, we are able to posture ourselves in a position of spiritual mourning; whereby, we deeply embrace longing and desire for our Bridegroom Jesus.
Rev 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!”
