Day 18 • Fasting & Praying

John 13:34-35, A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Heavenly Father, You Are The God Who Loves Us Unconditionally. For You loved us first in that while we were yet in our sins, You sent Jesus to take our place in judgment, so all our sins would be forgiven and we could have a right to the gift of eternal life in heaven. Because of Your loving-kindness toward us, we love You Lord, and ask today that You fill our hearts with a greater revelation of Your love for us, that we might love others the way You love us in Jesus’ name. Lord, increase our capacity to love according to Your word in Jesus’ name. Lord we renounce, rebuke and resist any definition of love we may have received that came to distort or pervert the love of God in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, we ask for clarity concerning Your love in Jesus’ name. Lord we ask that You build our faith so our love for one another grows more and more. Lord, fill us with the power of the Holy Spirit so we can demonstrate the kind of love that never fails. Lord, let this love be in us, and work through us, for us and for the benefit of others in Jesus’ name. Lord, we ask and believe by faith that this ever-increasing love rest in the hearts of every member of UVCF Church, and go beyond the four walls of our church, to reach families, husbands & wives, mothers & daughters, fathers & sons, relatives, friends and neighbors in our community, as well as colleagues at work. Heavenly Father, we confess where we failed to walk in love as You commanded. We receive Your forgiveness Lord and ask that You fill us with Your Holy Spirit, that we may be strengthened to love at all times, especially in times of temptation, when situations and relationships become difficult in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, our desire is to obey Your commandment and walk in love like Jesus did. And because Jesus lives inside us, we Thank You for the knowledge of Your love growing more and more in us, and empowering us to live the gospel of Jesus Christ on purpose, so that lives may be transformed in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, we Thank You for new a breadth and width, new heights and depths of Your love taking us to another level. Lord we commit to yielding to Your commandment in Jesus’ name. And we confess Your love is uniting us and positioning us for greater and greater blessings and favor. We praise and magnify You, God for Your amazing grace. And we bless Your Holy Name for all these things we ask and confess by faith in Jesus’ name. Amen.
