reetings to you New Birth Citizens! In this Year of the Lord's Release, this is the hour of your visitation. We declare that OCCUPY 2011 will be life changing. As we begin our 21-day corporate fast for OCCUPY, we must be committed to consecrating ourselves unto the Lord. Coming together on one accord in the spirit of love, unity, and covenant will produce a greater intimacy with God. As a result, we should have a spirit of expectancy to see the Apostolic birthed in the New Birth movement. Please use the scriptures in this brochure as a guide to assist you with your daily prayer and study time. This practice will ensure that we are on one accord and intentional during our time of fasting. In addition to what is provided in this brochure, please study your notes and scriptures, and listen to the CDs from Sunday and Tuesday Night Empowerment messages. Please choose one of the following types of fasts during your consecration: Liquid, Partial, or Media Fast. This consecration is a time for you to create glory and hear from God concerning direction for your life. If fasting from food, be sure to drink plenty of water. If you have not already done so, please consult your doctor before fasting. Bishop & First Lady Murphy and the New Birth-Charlotte family advise all participants to consider their personal health needs. Please note the following disclaimer: New Birth will not be responsible for any adverse physical reactions to the fast.
