e5 MEN

Thousands of Men in Over 80 Countries

PROTESTANTS, ORTHODOX, & CATHOLICS TO FAST TOGETHER

HUSBANDS FASTING FOR THEIR WIVES

The e5 Man fasts for his bride as a way to imitate Jesus as described by Saint Paul in his letter to the Ephesians, chapter 5 (for which the e5 is named). e5 Men fast in unison on bread and water for at least one 24 hour day per month – preferably the 1st Wednesday of the month.

EPHESIANS 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her.”

EPHESIANS 5:28-29 “So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church.”

Jesus made a bodily sacrifice on the cross for his bride the church to present her to God the Father “without spot or wrinkle.” (Eph 5:27) By fasting for our earthly bride and joining our sufferings to Christ’s we intercede for grace for our brides. At the same time our act of bodily love in union with Christ accelerates our own conversion.

By making this sacrifice for the women in our lives we live out the essence of the gospel through a very particular act of self denial. To lay down one’s body out of love for another is the central message of the gospel.

E5 MEN REQUIREMENTS

Except for medical reasons, the minimum requirements to be an e5 Man are that you:

Be a baptized Christian man.

Register with e5 Men

Fast on plain bread and water at least one 24 hour period a month for your bride for her needs of spiritual growth and/or healing; preferably on the 1st Wednesday of the month.

ADDITIONAL INTENTIONS OF THE E5 MAN The intentions of the e5 also include:

All the other e5 Men’s brides or primary intention.

For all the e5 Women registered with us.

For all women sinned against by men.

For the petitions sent to us by women.

And in general for all women.

NOT ONLY FOR MARRIED MEN

Membership is not limited to married men. For single men, their fast may be dedicated to their future bride. For widowers or those unlikely to get married,the beneficiary of their fasts may be for a daughter, a sister, or a granddaughter, and for those whos faith believes in the need – their deceased wife, or any other women in great need. For the consecrated celibate man the benefit of their fast can be for the benefit of the community they serve or for consecrated celibate women.

———————————————–

I have been proudly participating in the e5 organization for about three months, I can honestly say it has not only strenghtened our marriiage, but has brought me

closer to the Lord than I have ever been in my life!

I didn’t say that this was easy, I said it was rewarding, and I am proud to say this has become a major part of my weekly devotion with the Lord!

“Have a blessed day, I am.”

    • That is a great Spurgeon quote Ms. Linda, he has so many great ones it would be near impossible for me to pick a favorite? But I will share one;
      “I trust that you will find no rest for your feet till you have been the means of leading many to that blessed Savior who is your confidence and hope.”
      C. H. Spurgeon

      “If your sorrow is because of certain consequences which have come on your family because of your sin, this is remorse, not true repentance. If, one the other hand, you are grieved because you also sinned against God and His holy laws, then you are on the right road.”
      (See II Corinthians 7:10)
      Billy Graham

      I know you said you really enjoyed Dr. Graham, so I threw that one in for you too! I hope you enjoy reading my blog, and please share it with your friends and family.
      Have a blessed day,
