January -- Janus's month
Latin Januarius "of Janus"
Latin Janu(s) "Janus" + -arius "ary (pertaining to)"
Latin Januarius mensis "month of Janus"
Janus is the Roman god of gates and doorways, depicted with two faces looking in opposite directions. His festival month is January. Januarius had 29 days, until Julius when it became 31 days long.
Yehovah has His own calendar
We are now in the 10 month, 28th day of God called Tevet טֵבֵת
Esth.2  So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.

Fasting and pray
Fasting and pray
andfasting, and weeping, and wailing
וְצוֹם וּבְכִי וּמִסְפֵּד
From H6684; a fast: - fast (-ing).
A primitive root; to cover over (the mouth), that is, to fast: - at all, fast.
From H56; lamentation: - mourning.
A primitive root; to bewail: - lament, mourn.
From H5594; a lamentation: - lamentation, one mourneth, mourning, wailing.
A primitive root; properly to tear the hair and beat the breasts; generally to lament; by implication to wail: - lament, mourn (-er), wail.
I only looked up the word fasting, not fast or pray. There are many, many more verses to look up.
 And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.
 And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of Yehovah their God one fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped Yehovah their God.
Neh.9 Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackclothes, and earth upon them.
Esth.4  When Mordecai perceived all that
was done, Mordecai rent his clothes, and put on sackcloth
with ashes, and went out into the midst of the city, and cried with a loud and a bitter cry;
 And came even before the king's gate: for none might enter into the king's gate clothed with sackcloth.
 And in every province, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, there was great mourning among the Jews, and fasting, and weeping, and wailing; and many lay in sackcloth and ashes.
Esth.9  … they called these days Purim
after the name of Pur. Therefore for all the words of
this letter, and of that which they had seen concerning this matter, and which
had come unto them,
 The Jews ordained, and took upon them, and upon their seed, and upon all such as joined themselves unto them, so as it should not fail, that they would keep these two days according to their writing, and according to their appointed time every year;
 And that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed.
 Then Esther the queen, the daughter of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote with all authority, to confirm this second letter of Purim.
 And he sent the letters unto all the Jews, to the hundred twenty and seven provinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth,
 To confirm these days of Purim in their times appointed, according as Mordecai the Jew and Esther the queen had enjoined them, and as they had decreed for themselves and for their seed, the matters of the fastings and their cry.
 And the decree of Esther confirmed these matters of Purim; and it was written in the book.
Pss.35  False
witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.
 They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
 I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
Pss.69  When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.  I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.
Pss.109  My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.
Jer.36  And it came to pass in the fourth
year of Jehoiakim
the son of Josiah king of Judah, that this word came unto Jeremiah from Yehovah,
 Take thee a roll of a book, and write therein all the words that I have spoken unto thee against Israel, and against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spake unto thee, from the days of Josiah, even unto this day.
 It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do unto them; that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.
 Then Jeremiah called Baruch the son of Neriah: and Baruch wrote from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of Yehovah, which he had spoken unto him, upon a roll of a book.
 And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, I am shut up; I cannot go into the house of Yehovah:
 Therefore go thou, and read in the roll, which thou hast written from my mouth, the words of Yehovah in the ears of the people in Yehovah's house upon the fasting day: and also thou shalt read them in the ears of all Judah that come out of their cities.
 It may be they will present their supplication before Yehovah, and will return every one from his evil way: for great is the anger and the fury that Yehovah hath pronounced against this people.
Dan.6  It pleased Darius to set over the
kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;
 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.
 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
 Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.
 Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.
 Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.
 All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellers, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.
 Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
 Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.
 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.
these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before
 Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king's decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
 Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.
 Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him.
 Then these men assembled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed.
 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.
 And a stone was brought and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel.
 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him.
 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions.
 And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?
 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.
 Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.
 And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.
 Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth;
Peace be multiplied unto you.
 I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end.
 He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
 So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
Dan.9  In the first year of Darius the son
of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans;
 In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of Yehovah came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.
 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplication, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:
 And I prayed unto Yehovah my God, and made my confession, and said, Yehovah, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;
 We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:
 Neither have we hearkened unto thy servants the prophets, which spake in thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.
 Yehovah, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.
 Yehovah, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.
 To Yehovah our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him;
 Neither have we obeyed the voice of Yehovah our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.
 Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.
 And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem.
 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before Yehovah our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.
 Therefore hath Yehovah watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for Yehovah our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.
 And now, Yehovah our God, that hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and hast gotten thee renown, as at this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly.
 Yehovah, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us.
 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord's sake.
 O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but for thy great mercies.
 Yehovah, hear; Yehovah, forgive; Yehovah, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.
 And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before Yehovah my God for the holy mountain of my God;
 Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.
 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.
 At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.
Joel 2  Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and
sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land
tremble: for the day of Yehovah cometh, for
it is nigh at hand;
 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
 Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
 And Yehovah shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of Yehovah is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
 Therefore also now, saith Yehovah, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto Yehovah your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto Yehovah your God?
 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
 Let the priests, the ministers of Yehovah, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
 Then will Yehovah be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
 Yea, Yehovah will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
 But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.
 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for Yehovah will do great things.
 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in Yehovah your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil.
 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of Yehovah your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am Yehovah your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
Matt.9  Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them?but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
Matt.6 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and
wash thy face;
 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
Matt.15  Then Yeshua called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.
 And his
disciples say unto him, Whence should we
have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?
 And Yeshua saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.
 And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full.
 And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.
Matt.17  And when they were come to the
multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
 Then Yeshua answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
 And Yeshua rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
 Then came the disciples to Yeshua apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
 And Yeshua said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
Luke 2  And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years (84), which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
Acts 10  And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,  And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God.
Acts 14  And when they had preached the
gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra,
and to Iconium,
 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.
Acts 27  And while the day was coming on, Paul besought them all to take meat, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that ye have tarried and continued fasting, having taken nothing.
2 Cor.6  We
then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the
grace of God in vain.
 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
 Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:
 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,
 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;
 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,
 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;
 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;
 As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
2 Cor.11  I speak as concerning reproach, as
though we had been weak. Howbeit whereinsoever any is
bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also.
 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.
 Are they ministers of Messiah? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.
 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.
 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;
 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
Isa.58  Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.
 Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours.
 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.
 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to Yehovah?
 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of Yehovah shall be thy rereward.
 Then shalt thou call, and Yehovah shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:
 And Yehovah shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
Remember to fast and pray to receive an answer
