Day 18, Fasting & Praying

1 Corinthians 14:12, Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.

Heavenly Father, You Are The God of every good and perfect gift. And we thank You for the spiritual gifts You have given us so the church may be built up and edified. Lord, we confess and repent for neglecting the spiritual gifts you have given us. And today, we commit in our hearts to being good and faithful stewards of our gifts. Lord, we thank You that our gifts are making room for us, opening doors that no man can shut, and blessing the saints and people in the marketplace. And now Lord we confess by faith that this is the year and time appointed that You are revealing spiritual gifts, purpose and assignments to the believers in Jesus’ name. You are making known to us the purpose for which You created us, that we all may operate in our gifts, function with the anointing of the Holy Spirit, fulfill divine mandates, being encouraged in our hearts and thoroughly furnished in the spirit to build up our families, friends, and loved ones in Jesus’ name. Lord we ask that You teach us and make us aware of all the spiritual gifts we have at our disposal at UVCF Church for our personal and spiritual growth, maturity, health, well-being, and overall prosperity in Jesus’ name. Lord, grant us wisdom and good understanding concerning every spiritual gifts that we may be able to operate in love and that our gifts are seasoned with grace. Holy Spirit, continue to arrest our hearts and minds this year from distractions, so that we pursue the mental handle we need to function in our gifts on a higher level in Jesus’ name. Holy Spirit, teach us and equip us concerning all the spiritual gifts, the word of wisdom, word of knowledge, the gift of faith, the gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues, interpretation of tongues, as well as with the gifts of helps, and governments in Jesus’ name. Lord give us to understand Your liberty concerning our gifts and the order You have for when we operate in the church. We thank You Lord in advance for gift impartation and activation. We pray Lord that You take us from gift meditation to gift activation this year. Lord, teach us how to wait on our calling, and give us the courage to answer the call when You call us. Holy Spirit instruct us as to what we need to do, so we can grow and excel in our spiritual gifts, and be a blessing to our church, the saints, our families, our children, our friends, as well as to those You call us to in the world. Holy Spirit, help us to exercise our gifts and walk in the fruit of the spirit daily in Jesus’ name, that people may see the love of Christ in everything we do. Lord we want to be filled with Your Spirit, that there may be a holy inspiration filling the atmosphere at UVCF Church, that there be a great stirring up of the gifts, that our hearts may always be on fire for You God, and that we minister in with a fresh anointing that compels people to listen and take heed to the gospel of the Kingdom of heaven, the good news that Jesus saves. And for all these things, we bless Your Holy Name oh God for Your loving-kindness. We give You all the glory, honor and praises now and believe it all done in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Day 17, Fasting & Praying

Psalm 127:3, Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him.

Heavenly Father, we thank You for the gift of children You have given to us, and we thank You Lord for the babies about to be birthed this year. Now Lord, as we live in perilous times, we cover our children in prayer today. Lord forgive us for our sins and the sins of our ancestors. We repent and renounce all activity that is disobedience to the will of God. We break every demonic contract and assignment over our lives and our children’s lives. And we stand in the gap to intercede for our children, for the next generation, asking and believing in Jesus’ name that You continue to watch over and protect our children. Lord, Keep them from the evil one who would seek to sift them as wheat. Lord, protect their hearts and minds. We ask Lord that You place a hedge of protection like You did for Job in Jesus’ name. Holy Spirit help us to teach our children how to guard their hearts, how to guard their souls, their minds, their will, their imagination, their emotions, and their intellect, so that the enemy cannot steal the word of faith and blessings they have already received. And it is in Jesus’ name, we take authority and we bind up every evil spirit, every seducing spirit, every lying spirit, that has waged an attack against our children and we cast them out. In Jesus’ name, we bind up the spirits of anger, hatred, malice, fear, drugs and alcohol, lusts of the flesh, idolatry, pornography, pharmakia, entertainment, and any spirits that are currently at work to deceive and distract our children, teens, and millennials’ ability to focus their attention on Jesus. We bind up any spirit trying to draw our children out of the presence of God, and we cast them out now in Jesus’ name. For our children shall be worshippers of The Most High God. And Lord, we speak now by faith, and decree and declare in Jesus’ name, the blessing of understanding and wisdom is replacing anxiety and confusion in Jesus’ name. We decree and declare our children are succeeding in every area of their life, whether at home, in the neighborhood, at school, at church, and in the marketplace. We confess our children are obeying their parents, elders, and those in authority in The Lord. We confess our children are excited to let the light of Jesus Christ shine so the entire family can see Jesus. Our children are letting their light shine in school, and online so their classmates can see the power of Jesus that God may be glorified. Lord we ask that You give our children the grace to succeed in all their school subjects, including reading, math, social studies, science, athletics, music, art, drama, speech, computer, business, technology, English, foreign languages, religion, theology, and any other subject they set their heart to study in Jesus’ name. We decree and declare our children’s hearts shall not be deceived by doctrines of demons. And we confess our children are overcoming the challenging hurdles of learning to relate to others around them, receiving good advice for navigating relationships, as they grow in faith and love, righteous character and respect, honor and integrity, dignity and decency in Jesus’ name. We confess our children are mastering academic life and graduating with honors, and they are leaders and mentors worthy of recognition because of Jesus. Lord, we decree and declare, scales are falling off of their eyes this year, and they are receiving the revelation of Jesus, and seeing the love of God for them through Christ Jesus. Lord, we ask that You give them a heightened level of discernment so they are able to distinguish truth from facts, fiction, fables, fairy tales, lies and doctrinal error. Holy Spirit, give them direction and guidance should they ever lose their way. Lord, give them wisdom and courage to stand their ground in the presence of bullies, and love their enemies to the point of humility, that they may win souls for Jesus. Heavenly Father, we say thank You for our children. For they are gifts You have placed in our care. Lord, we ask that You continue to teach us how to teach them and train them up so they never depart from the faith in Jesus’ name. And Heavenly Father, because You Are A Promise Keeper, we give say Thank You in advance, and we give You all the praise, all the glory and all honor for these things being done in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Day 16, Fasting & Praying

John 15:4-5, Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Heavenly Father, You Are The Lord of The Harvest. Lord, You Are The Vine and we are the branches. And we can do nothing without You. So Lord we first say Thank You for adopting us into Your Kingdom Family, grafting us into The Vine, grafting us into fellowship with Christ that we might be able to bear much fruit. And now we take authority in Jesus’ name, and rebuke the works of the flesh, adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings. For we know we cannot inherit the kingdom of God with these things in our lives. In Jesus’ name, we also rebuke the spirit of schisms, division, fear, lying, pride, strife, debate, and gossip in our homes, in our families, on our jobs and in the church. We command these spirits to come out of the mind, body and soul now in Jesus’ name. Holy Spirit reveal and remove every hindrance and obstacle to our spiritual growth and development, so that we may grow and bear much fruit in Jesus’ name. Lord, make us effective witnesses in Your Kingdom for Your glory. Equip us to know and walk with all the fruit of the spirit in Jesus’ name, so sinners give their lives to Christ Jesus, and enjoy all the blessings of favor and fellowship with the saints. Heavenly Father, we thank You and praise You today for the present harvest You have already sent to our church, and the new harvest of souls You are sending and adding to UVCF Church this year. For You, Oh God desire to see Your house filled.

And so we speak into the atmosphere by faith. We confess by faith the new harvest of souls is coming our way. A new harvest coming from the North, South, East, and the West in Jesus’ name. The new harvest is being drawn by the love of God. The new harvest is hearing and receiving the good news about Jesus Christ, receiving the gospel of The Kingdom of God, and walking in God’s love and deliverance for them at UVCF Church. This new harvest is making Jesus Christ their personal Savior and Lord. We confess the members of UVCF Church are being filled with the Holy Spirit, walking by faith, living in the power of the spirit and manifesting all the fruit of the spirit. We are being discipled effectively, to grow and mature in Christ, uniting with the saints, as we all increase more and more in the revelation knowledge of Jesus Christ. We speak by faith, God is adding and planting so many new souls at UVCF Church that we need more room to receive them all. We confess the new harvest is connected, and firmly rooted in their faith in God. We decree and declare that what God has planted at UVCF Church, no person, no things, and no devil in hell shall be able to remove them from their set place in Jesus’ name. For they are receiving the revelation of Jesus Christ, and the gates of hell cannot prevail against them. We confess the new harvest has a fresh passion for serving in the Kingdom of God, and they delight in doing The Lord’s work in Jesus’ name. We confess the new harvest God is sending are faithful, honorable, humble, lovers, givers, anointed, gifted, talented, spiritually hungry, servants, students who enjoy studying the word of God, and ready to share in this tremendous labor of love, where our yoke is easy, and our burden is light in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, we thank You that You had a purpose and plans for our lives before we joined the church, and we have joy and peace in our hearts knowing all things work together for our good as we live in Your purpose.

Heavenly Father, we love You and Thank You for the present grace and privilege You have given us to do this great work. And now Lord, we ask by faith, for a greater measure of faith and grace so we are all equipped to do the greater works this year, to edify and encourage Your people in Jesus’ name. Lord, our hearts are open to receive the new level of grace for the new, greater harvest to come. For this, we say Thank You Heavenly Father. We give You all the praise, all the glory & honor for these blessings, we confess and declare now by faith, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Day 15, Fasting & Praying

1 Kings 8:10-11, And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord, So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord.

Heavenly Father, We Thank You for Giving Your Only Begotten Son, Jesus to be a Sacrifice for all our sins. And because of Jesus’ sacrifice, we have been delivered and set free from the powers of sin and darkness. We have salvation and life in this present world, and life more abundantly in eternity. And so Lord, because You deserve to be praised and magnified, we ask for a greater revelation concerning worship. We ask for a deeper revelation that provokes us individually and corporately as a body of believers to pray like we’ve never prayed before and take our worship to higher and higher levels this year in Jesus’ name. According to Your word, when two or more pray, asking and believing as touching anything, it shall be done. And so we ask that You release an anointing for prayer upon the pastors and leaders that a special grace for establishing a culture of prayer in our church that teaches on prayer, produces prayer partners and prayer intercessors full of faith, who will pray effectually and fervently with the help of the Holy Spirit, so we succeed as a church in all things in Jesus’ name. For we believe by faith that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. And we decree and declare it is done in Jesus’ name.

Lord, we pray You encourage our hearts, build our faith, and equip us so we operate as one even when we worship, that Your glory might rest in all of our services. For we decree and declare every battle we face in our personal lives, our families, our businesses, and our church are already won in Jesus’ name. So Heavenly Father, we ask that You reveal to us the height, the depth, the breadth and width of Your love for us, that we all might be moved to give beyond our usual sacrifices this year in Jesus’ name. Lord, we ask that You give us that personal faith conviction we need deep inside our hearts and souls, so we no longer give lip-service concerning worship, but that we might be filled with the Holy Spirit, and live obedient lifestyles that bring great glory to You in Jesus’ name. We say Thank You Lord for the blessings of faith, hope, love, deliverance, secrets for our success, insight, wisdom, understanding, boldness and courage, generosity, victory, visions and dreams, deliverance and times of refreshing for our souls, and the glory that You are releasing in this season as we spend time in Your presence. And we say Thank You Heavenly Father for all the new things You are about to do. Thank You Lord for building our faith, so we grow and mature together in Christ through the word, through prayer and praise, through fellowship and even through suffering. Lord as we worship You in spirit and in truth, we declare victory belongs to us because it is the gift You have given to us through Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord. We confess and believe by faith that as we worship together, we are winning together in Jesus’ name. And so we bless Your Name and give You all the praise, all the glory and honor for these things we ask believing by faith in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Day 14, Fasting & Praying

Proverbs 22:29, Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.

Heavenly Father, You Are Our Faithful God. And we come today confessing we have not been as faithful as we should. Lord, forgive us of our unfaithfulness, and where we have been slack concerning our own lives, our homes, our families, our businesses and the ministries You have called us to. We rebuke the spirit slothfulness, excuses, pride, bitterness, jealousy and envy. We bind them up and we cast them out now in Jesus’ name. Heavenly Father, we ask that You pour out Your Spirit upon us mightily that we might be strengthened in our hearts, our minds and in our physical bodies to be diligent in everything we do this year to the glory of God. Holy Spirit pour out the vision we need for our personal well-being, and our total health. Holy Spirit give us the visions that inspire and motivate us to be diligent in our own homes, faithful to be the consistent examples our children need each day, diligent with our finances, diligent with our materiel possessions, and faithful to the businesses and the entrepreneurial ventures we invest ourselves in. Lord, bless us with vision for ministries to bless the church, the household of faith and to be innovative in our approach to reaching this generation and the next generation in Jesus’ name. We thank You Heavenly Father for the wisdom to reach lost souls and communicate with the unchurched and the unsaved in a unique way. Because we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, we decree and declare this will be a year of no limitations in Jesus’ name. We will place no limits on You Lord and we give You permission to blow our minds in Jesus’ name. We praise You Lord in advance for giving us the grace and favor to excel in every area of life, business and ministry, as well as the strength to do it. We speak into the atmosphere a tri-fold grace for success in all three domains. And because of Your grace and favor on our lives, the name of Jesus is being lifted higher and higher, and new souls are being saved. Now Lord lead us in paths of righteousness. For with You Lord, we always win. We bless Your Holy Name and give you all the praise, all the glory and all the honor. And we say Thank You Heavenly Father, for all these blessings we have now in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
