Day 21 • Fasting & Prayer

Jeremiah 29:7, And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.

Heavenly Father, You Are The Creator of Heaven and Earth. You Are The God of Every Nation and we stand in need of your blessings. And in spite of the state of affairs, we can yet pray for the peace our nation. Now Lord, You know the current state of our nation. You see the evil that is happening in our nation. Heavenly Father, this government is helpless without You Lord. Our politicians are helpless without You Lord. You said, Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Without You Oh God, this nation will not be able to stand against its enemies. And so Lord, according to Your word, You said, If my people who are called by Your Name, would humble themselves and pray, seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then You would hear from heaven, and You would heal our land. And so Heavenly Father, we humble ourselves now in prayer, confessing our sins. For we are a nation in reproach, and in need of Your help today. 

So Lord we confess our sins of ignorance, our carelessness, our irresponsibility, our lack of devotion to You God. We confess turning a blind eye to the needy and the oppressed, allowing prejudice to go without rebuke, not protecting the helpless, not defending the innocent, not seeking justice, favoring one ethnicity over another, remaining silent while children died in the womb, legalizing drugs, idolizing politics over the government of heaven, objectifying our women and emasculating our men, neutralizing gender, prioritizing materialism, money and wealth. Heavenly Father, because You have the power to make all things well, we pray now that you heal every citiy, in and around the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. We also pray that You heal the State of Texas, and bring healing to United States of America in Jesus’ name. We rebuke the spirits of anger, hate, jealousy, envy, murder, racism and all institutions of racism in this country. 

Heavenly Father, we pray You restore peace in our nation. From the east coast to the west coast. From the southern border to the northern border of the USA, we ask that You send peace in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, because You set up kings and princes, we ask that You touch the heart of leaders all across this nation, who are currently in positions of authority. Lord, You know how to remove those who are not in agreement with Your perfect will and how to set up new leaders in authority in Jesus’ name. Lord, we ask that You send the Moses, the Daniels and Esthers who are humble, have integrity of character, are filled with the Holy Spirit, full of faith, wisdom, and are anointed and appointed for such a time as this. Lord protect them as they fulfill their Kingdom purpose and assignments in the earth. Lord, renew their strength and give them grace that is sufficient for difficult situations. Lord give them the boldness, courage and tenacity to confront wickedness with righteousness, and speak truth to power in Jesus’ name. Give them an unusual level perseverance that outlasts the stubbornness of wickedness in Jesus’ name. For we declare peace in our cities and in our nation now in Jesus’ name. 

Heavenly Father, we pray for President Donald Trump, his wife and family. Lord, we ask that You protect him so that he may live to see and know that You Are King of kings and Lord of lords. Lord let him live to see You Are The God Who Works Miracles. Let him live to see You Are The God Who Shuts the Lion’s Mouth, and You Are The God Who Protects Your Prophets. Heavenly Father, we give You permission to turn the heart of the king so Your word is fulfilled and Your Name is glorified in Jesus’ name. Lord we Thank You Lord for interrupting all politics as usual to awaken us all spiritually. For You Are GOD, and there is none beside YOU. Lord we ask that You raise up righteous leaders and place them in positions of authority in government as well as the marketplace in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, send the Deborah’s of our generation in Jesus’ name. Lord we pray You send righteous police chiefs and law enforcement, righteous judges and lawyers in the courtroom, righteous city councilmen and women, righteous mayors and governors, senators and legislators, doctors, principals and teachers and others who called by Your name into the professional workplace in Jesus’ name. 

Lord bless our military men and women abroad who serve and protect our righteous causes in other countries day and night. Refresh them and give them the grace they need to protect and serve faithfully. Strengthen them so their hearts don’t fail in the face of difficulty, when responses are slow, when they face uncertainty on the battlefield, Lord send Your angels to remind them The Lord Is My Shepherd and I Shall Not Want, He Maketh Me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters, He restores my soul, He leadeth in paths of righteousness for His name sake. Yeah, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou Art With Me, Thy Rod and Thy Staff they comfort me, Thou prepare a table before them in the presence of my enemies, You anoint their heads with oil and cause their cups to run over. Cause goodness and mercy to follow them all the days of their life that they might dwell in the house of the Lord forever. 

Now Heavenly Father, You said, where sin did abound, grace did much more abound. And so Lord, we pray for Your love to abide in us and abound in us in Jesus’ name. We ask for a supernatural love increase and overflow in Jesus’ name. Lord we speak love into the atmosphere. We decree and declare Phileo Love, brotherly love and acts of kindness are about to go viral in this country this year in Jesus’ name. We declare the love of God is so attractive, tv, newspaper, talk radio, music entertainment, and all industry headlines are changing across the country, in Jesus’ name. By faith, we declare this Love Takeover is happening in our cities, in our state, and across this country, and will be our children’s children will know about it. Heavenly Father, pour out Your spirit. Release visions and dreams. Give hope to the hopeless. And shift this country into its next season of hope and blessings, in Jesus’ name. Now Heavenly Father, we bless Your Holy Name. We give You all the glory, and we give You all the honor and praise. For Thine Is The Kingdom, and the power, both now and forever. We ask and believe all these things are done in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Word of Caution • WAIT, WAIT, WAIT!!!

YUM!! PANCAKES, BUTTER, BACON, SYRUP!

WAIT, WAIT, PLEASE WAIT!!

A WORD OF CAUTION!!

Before we conclude our corporate fast, we have a brief word of caution we’d like to share with you. We urge you NOT TO order those pancakes and syrup for breakfast right away. Why you might ask?

Well, because you have been fasting for the past 20 days, your body’s digestive system will likely be shocked should you introduce certain greasy and fatty foods too soon. Please know your digestive system will need at least several days to get back into the practice of digesting these kinds of foods again with the proper enzymes required to break them down. So in order to spare you any unnecessary discomfort such as, feelings of nausea, stomachaches, diarrhea, or other digestive issues, we highly recommend you do not overeat, or eat greasy foods in large quantities right away. Instead, we recommend you present certain foods like meats and breads back into your diet in very small portions – a little at a time each day. Yes. Small portions, and a little at a time over a period of several days or more.

Now because each person is different, the information provided here is simply a word of caution, and is not to be taken in place of your doctor’s orders. Those under doctor’s care, are recommended to consult with their physician on how to best resume a normal diet after a 21 day fast. 

With that said, we will continue our corporate fast until 6:00pm this Sunday, Jan.27th. After which time, you may adjust your eating schedule respectively.

Thanks again for joining UVCF Church for our 21 Days Corporate Fast this year. Feel free to share your testimonies with us at uvcfchurch@gmail.com. And we look forward to hearing how God has blessed you. See you next year. Thanks again & Be blessed.
