Join e5 Special Forces
Special Forces Banner The e5 Special Forces Man fasts more than the one day a month minimum required. The man who belongs to the e5 Special Forces can add fasts specifically for his bride, but also can fast for other women that are in great need.
Any additional e5 fast during the month makes an e5 Man a participant with the other e5 Special Forces. Traditionally e5 Special Forces Men fast every Wednesday throughout the year. Some e5 Special Forces Men fast more than the one day a week as well.
The amount of extra fast days throughout the month is up to each member of the e5 Special Forces.
As a fellow e5 Man, he joins his intentions to all the e5 Men's intentions for that month. The only restriction for the fast to be an e5 Special Forces fast is that it is for a woman or women or a woman's intentions.

What is e5 Men?
e5 logo

The e5 Man fasts for his bride to imitate Jesus as described by Saint Paul in his letter to the Ephesians, chapter 5 (for which e5 is named). Fasting is eating only bread and water.
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.

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 deceased wife, a daughter, a sister, or a granddaughter, 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.

Except for medical reasons, the minimum requirements to be an e5 Man are that you:
1. Be a baptized Christian man.
2. Register with e5. Register as an e5 Man. Click here.
3. Fast on plain bread and water at least one day a month for your bride for her spiritual growth and healing - preferably on the first Wednesday of the month.

The intentions of the e5 also include:
1. All the other e5 Men's brides or primary intention.
2. For all the e5 Women registered with us.
3. For all women sinned against by men.
4. For the petitions sent to us by women for women.
5. And in general for all women.
